Dozens of people demonstrated Wednesday night at the location of the terror attack committed earlier in the day, in Jerusalem. The demonstrators called for revenge and for Yitzchak Aharonovich, the Minister of Internal Security, to resign.
Former MK Michael Ben Ari (Otzma LeYisrael), said during the protest: "We have a stupid Minister of Internal Security who instead of giving us security, is giving us concrete blocks" - referencing the fact that the security establishment began laying down concrete next to the light rail instead of cracking down on terrorism actively. "Concrete does not create confidence."
Ben-Ari added that the terrorist "is a cook in the morning and a slaughterer in the evening. He continues to walk, because here [in Israel] there's a lie of coexistence."
He called on the government to "look the enemy in the eye."
Baruch Marzel said the time had come to expel the terrorists from Jerusalem and to "bury the co-existence that does not exist."
The car terror attack in Jerusalem today killed a Border Patrol officer, and injured 13 others. Two people are in critical condition and three in moderate condition.
The terrorist, Ibrahim Al-Akari, a resident of Shuafat in eastern Jerusalem, ran over a group of pedestrians, continued driving and struck another vehicle traveling along the road. He hit another vehicle before being stopped.
Al-Akari descended from the vehicle with a crowbar and began attacking passers-by. Police and Border Patrol officers shot him and killed him.
This is only the latest protest against Aharonovich - who, along with Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino, has become a focal point for criticism over what many perceive as an inadequate response to the constant cycle of violence in Jerusalem - prompting much drama around goings-on in the police and the government over how the attacks have been handled.
Just days ago, a Cabinet meeting erupted into a series of criticisms over Aharonovich's term as minister, after several MKs blasted his handling of recent terror attacks in light of last week's attempted murder of Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick.
