The security cabinet voted unanimously on Thursday in favor of a proposal by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to toughen measures against those convicted of throwing stones and firebombs. Under the new policy, the rules governing police use of live fire will be eased, and a mandatory minimum sentence will be set.

It was also decided to allow imposing fines on minors aged 14-18 who will be caught throwing stones, as well as their parents. Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked is expected to examine the possibility of imposing fines on younger children as well.

    A firebomb is a deadly weapon, the person wielding it is, no matter how old, what sex or religion, a dangerous threat. As such these actions should be addressed with whatever force is required to neutralize that particular threat.

    Longer prison terms are costly, an alternative for those throwing stones might be to send them to Saudi Arabia and allow them to live with their brother arab and islamists.

    The fines would need to be exorbitant, making the cost of participating in the criminal acts beyond the means and thus forcing the forfeiture of all possessions to pay the fines.

    It might also cause parents to be more responsible to what their offspring take part in. But then again the “fakestinians” love to show the bodies of their children and the “misery” of their lives which they created for themselves, to the world press.
