Deny them license to drive and murder

Should they be allowed to drive at all?

Jack Engelhard,

From Uzi Baruch at Arutz Sheva we have a straight up depiction on what’s happening at radicalized Muslim neighborhoods in and around Jerusalem. Specifically here it’s about the hostile Arab village of Jabel Mukaber from where an Arab terrorist emerged to murder four IDF soldiers by use of a truck to ram into his victims. Many more were injured.

Apparently this terrorist is no exception. He is the rule. There are more where he came from, that is, Arab neighborhoods totally at war against Israel, while situated within Israel and enjoying all its freedoms and privileges – like driving. This is where I depart from rational thinkers.

I choose to be irrational. I choose to be irrational in a world that’s gone irrational and I choose to go off the cliff in a world that’s gone off the cliff.

Just think of Security Council Resolution 2334 to know what I’m talking about. If that’s not crazy, nothing is. 

There, the world got together to deny Jews the right to live in Judea, Samaria and even Jerusalem.

Certain Arabs took the hint that’s it’s officially okay to deny Jews the right to live, period. Hence the vehicular terrorism of a few days ago.

So in a discussion with a friend I found myself speaking straight from instinct. In other words, the first thought that came to mind is the following:

Why should they be allowed to drive?


If you can’t trust a car or truck driven by an Arab in Jerusalem or anywhere within the country, something is wrong and something needs to be done.
Yes, Arabs – all the Arabs who live within Israel proper, the nearly two million of them who enjoy full rights within the Jewish State. I get it – already I’m accused of suggesting collective punishment. No, I’m suggesting safety. That’s the first job of any government anywhere.

If you can’t trust a car or truck driven by an Arab in Jerusalem or anywhere within the country, something is wrong and something needs to be done.

I also get it that you cannot blame every Arab driver – not all of them are terrorists. Most aren’t, probably.

But all it takes is one to take the lives of four IDF kids. That needs to be deemed totally unacceptable. In a word, ONE is too many.

If those people can’t behave civilized in a civilized country, there ought to be restrictions to their movements, starting with the automobile.

At the very least, certain privileges ought to be withdrawn from those villages where they scheme jihad day and night against the Jewish population of Israel.

Of course this is not the first car ramming incident within Israel.

There’ve been plenty others over the past couple of years in Israel and around the world.

But it was Israel where Muslim terrorists found this new method to commit bloodshed. That’s the extent of their inventiveness.

Just get into your car or truck, pick a crowd of innocents, run them over and keep shouting Allah Akhbar.

They do not have license to kill. But they do have license to drive. So if you stop them from driving, you stop them from killing, by auto at least.

Makes sense to me. But of course no law will ever be enacted to take up my wild proposition, which is to deny them the privilege of driving.

Even I know that this is a step too far. Never mind cooler heads than mine who would consider my plan atrocious.

Those would be movie stars like Meryl Streep who ruined and wiped out her entire Lifetime of Achievement in five minutes at last night’s Golden Globes – and who hates Donald Trump because he wants to halt the influx of migrants who may arrive to do us harm.

Plenty are here already. Too many like that terrorist from Jabel Mukaber.

So I have a plan that won’t ever happen; it could save lives but would be termed undemocratic because sensitivity to the Arabs comes first. Ask any judge.

But I am sick and tired of my people using Marquess of Queensberry Rules toward savages who operate by the lawlessness of the jungle.
