Yisrael Beytenu head Avigdor Liberman outlined the steps he thinks are necessary to curb the increase in deadly Palestinian terror attacks plaguing Jerusalem and the surrounding areas.

In a post to his Facebook page on Sunday, Liberman first called for an immediate halt to all Israeli money transfers to the Palestinian Authority, adding that it is well known that "PA president Mahmoud Abbas is not a partner for peace."

Israel's security cabinet should agree to demolish the home of every terrorist and that anyone who commits a terror attack should be given the death penalty. 

Furthermore, Liberman called for the northern branch of the Islamic Movement to be outlawed and barred from operating in Israel. He added that groups paying Muslims to heckle and taunt Jews heading to the Temple Mount must must be stopped as well.

 He also encouraged plans to build safe bypass roads for people traveling through the West Bank.

Liberman's statement came hours after an Israeli teenager was stabbed in at a gas station near Jerusalem's Old City on Sunday morning.

On Saturday evening, a Palestinian terrorist murdered two Jewish men and wounded a mother and her son in the Old City of Jerusalem in a stabbing and shooting spree. The suspect was shot dead following the attack.


The victims were Rabbi Nehemia Lavie, 41, an Old City resident who worked at the Ateret Cohanim Yeshiva, near the place he was killed, and Aharon Benita from Beitar Illit.

The toddler’s mother, 22, was in critical condition.
