A new law's been approved
that'll hopefully be helpful:
The Knesset on Wednesday approved a new, tougher anti-terrorism law, by a vote of 57-16. Representatives of all parties except Meretz and the Joint Arab List voted in favor of the law.
The new law significantly broadens Israel's anti-terrorism capabilities and its definitions of terrorist groups and terrorist acts. The law is a compilation that merges most provisions of the previous anti-terrorism law and replaces numerous outdated defense regulations enacted by the British Mandate more than 70 years ago.
Promoted by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, the legislation hardens punitive measures for terrorist activities. The legislative procedure to introduce the new law began several years ago in the 18th Knesset, under Tzipi Livni when she was the justice minister, advanced through the 19th Knesset, and ended Wednesday night.
I sure hope it'll come in handy for the forseeable future.
