Liberman: Jerusalem attack result of Israel's loss of deterrence

Just hours after a Palestinian assailant stabbed five Israelis in Jerusalem's Old City, killing two, Yisrael Beytenu chairman MK Avigdor Liberman wrote on Facebook: "This is what losing control and deterrence looks like."
MK Eyal Ben-Reuven (Zionist Union) said the deteriorating security situation is beginning to look like an Intifada.
"Security forces must act forcefully to stop the wave, but we must act forcefully with good judgment to make sure it doesn't cause an escalation," he added.
Ben-Reuven also said that only a diplomatic initiative can bring a long-term solution.
