Edelstein to Austrian FM: While ISIS slaughters, West is focused on construction in Jerusalem
During his meeting in Vienna Thursday with Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz, Knesset Speaker Yuli-Yoel Edelstein criticizes the ”Pavlovian reaction” of foreign officials to the planned construction of 2,700 housing units in Jerusalem; Edelstein also expresses his fear that funds earmarked for Gaza`s rehabilitation would be used by Hamas to arm itself and build terror tunnels. Addressing Abbas`s UN speech, he says the PA leader ”once again chose to bury the chance for peace”

On the Public Agenda
After years of ambiguity regarding compensation for property damage incurred during violent events related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Knesset Finance Committee approved regulations which obligate the State to offer compensation for property damaged incurred during such incidents. Committee Chairman Slomiansky: ”Authorities should prevent such acts of violence from occurring in the first place”


Yesteryear
2/10/1972
Major-General (ret.) Aharon Yariv is appointed advisor to Prime Minister Golda Meir on terror affairs. Following the massacre of Israeli athletes during the Olympic Games in Munich in 1972, Yariv urges PM Meir to authorize attacks on the enemies of Israel, also within the territories of friendly nations, despite the fear that agents will be caught and that Israel`s prestige will be hurt. Yariv was one of the initiators of ”Operation Wrath of God” to kill members of the ”Black September” terror organization, which were responsible for the murder of the Israeli athletes in the Munich Olympics.
