As Israel's security establishment warns of more attacks amid a recent spike of Arab terrorism, and soldiers are faced with more and more legal red tape in combating the threat, the nationalist group SOS Israel has come up with their own way to ensure the security of Israelis.

The group, which also goes by the name The National Headquarters for Saving the Nation and the Land, and is headed by Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolpo of Chabadheld an emergency meeting and decided to grant a monetary award to all citizens and security workers who kill terrorists trying to attack Jews.

"Every citizen in Israel must be ready at every moment to fulfill the divine and humane order, to completely eliminate the terrorist who comes to kill and harm Jews," released the group in a statement.

Referring to Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas by his kunya name, the statement continued "the terrorists, and at their head the terrorist and Holocaust denier Abu Mazen, must know that harming Jews does not pay, and whoever tries to do so will be returned home in a body bag."

In addition to the monetary award, those taking out terrorists as they attack will be given a certificate of honor as a "Hero of Israel" from the organization, which is supported by prominent religious Zionist and haredi figures in its efforts to oppose concessions on the land of Israel.

In the same statement, SOS Israel called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to launch an Operation Defensive Shield along the lines of the 2002 operation against the vicious and protracted terror war known as the Second Intifada, and to "wipe out terror before it is created."

Likewise, the group called for Netanyahu to establish a new Jewish community over the 1949 Armistice line as a Zionist response to every single terrorist attack. Netanyahu has for many long months instituted a covert freeze on such construction, a freeze which recent limited announcements have not assuaged.
