Ben-Gvir’s Proposal: Will It Increase Safety?

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir have reached an agreement that the judicial reform legislation will be frozen for the time being and brought up again during the Knesset’s summer session to allow for negotiations on the reforms, the Otzma Yehudit party announced Monday evening.

At the same time, the two agreed that as a step to keep the peace in Israeli cities, the establishment of a National Guard under the auspices of the National Security Ministry will be approved at the next cabinet meeting. This Sunday Cabinet will approve Ben-Gvir’s proposal to create a civilian National Guard.

The proposal states that “the Israel National Guard will be used as a skilled and trained special force to handle, among other things, various emergency scenarios, nationalist crime, the fight against terrorism, as well as to strengthen governance in areas where this is required, within the framework of the roles currently held by the Israel Police in these areas.”

Minister Ben-Gvir said of the proposal: “A National Guard is a basic critical need for the State of Israel, without which we will not be able to protect the security of our citizens in order to fight terrorism, the phenomenon of protection, nationalist crime and restore governance to the cities of Israel.”

Israel’s many security forces, the IDF, the police, etc., are charged with protecting Israel’s citizens and yet we see so much of a double standard where Jews are treated like terrorists and terrorists treated with kid gloves.
