Earlier this month, Israel’s Knesset enacted a minimum prison term for minors who throw stones and firebombs at vehicles. An outraged Palestinian Authority called the measure “punitive and racist.”

Palestinian prepare for terror attack, dropping huge stones on passing cars.

Stoning attacks in Israel go largely unreported, but on average there are several such incidents every day. The perpetrators are usually Palestinian Arab youth, and their victims are almost always Israeli Jewish motorists.

There are certain areas of Jerusalem that the police, ambulances and other public services simply won’t enter for fear of being stoned.

But engaging in such violence is the “right” of every Palestinian Arab child, insisted the Palestinian Authority’s Committee on Prisoners.

The committee accused the Israelis of attempting to “deprive Palestinian children of their ability to exercise their rights in an attempt to kill their sense of belonging to their land.”

    I am hopeful that Israel will continue to tighten the screws on violent protesters, even those who hurl “small” rocks. If a sling was enough to kill Goliath, those who hurl rocks should be jailed. It is good to see the plain-clothes infiltration of protest groups. Maybe one day every group, including Palestinians, will be held equally accountable before the law.
