The IDF spokesman said Saturday that the armed forces are getting set for the current Palestinian unrest to continue for some weeks – if not more – and a possible terrorist attack from the Gaza Strip. In a briefing to reporters following the terrorist murder of three members of a Halamish family, the spokesman said: Religious elements new to us have raised their heads.” He did not elaborate on this. “We are making a great effort, operationally and by covert means, to curtail the escalating of the violence. But we face a surge of negativity with religious extremist overtones that spreads from one day to the next and could generate more terrorism.”

The spokesman revealed that the terrorist hiked the 2.5km from his village to Halamish Friday night, carrying a bag containing a Koran, a bottle of water and a knife. It took him 15 minutes to stab to death a grandfather and son and daughter and injure a grandmother, before a soldier on leave who heard the screaming from a nearby apartment shot him through a window.

    Temple Mount: Alternatives to metal detectors to be implemented tonight
    New security measures on the Temple Mount: Fences will be erected near the entrances to the Temple Mount compound; lines to the entrance will allow for security screening; any suspicious visitors will be checked by manual metal detectors. It is also likely that entry with bags will be prohibited.

    Is this giving in to the terrorist demands ?
    Is Israel developing a spine from shaving foam ?

    Double the metal detectors on top of the new measures .
