Israel revokes Ramadan goodwill measures after jihad attack


This is common sense. In the U.S., the outreach efforts to Muslims increase after jihad attacks, in the mistaken belief that jihadis are just reacting to enormities of the West, and will be pacified by gestures of good will.

“Israel revokes Ramadan goodwill measures after attack,” Associated Press, June 18, 2017:

Israel’s prime minister says he has revoked visitation rights for Palestinians that were approved for the holy month of Ramadan following a deadly attack on an Israeli servicewoman….

Three Palestinians armed with knives and an automatic weapon carried out near simultaneous attacks at two locations Friday night. Police Staff Sgt. Maj. Hadas Malka, 23, was stabbed to death.

At his weekly Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu lashed out at Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas for not condemning the attack.

Israel had previously announced a series of goodwill measures for Ramadan that included access for 100 Gaza residents to attend prayers at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque.
