In Jerusalem, like in the West Bank, personal security can be restored to all the city’s residents only through an independent Israeli security initiative combined with civil-economic measures to improve the welfare of Palestinian residents, alongside a clear declaration of intent which will create a new political horizon and reason for hope.
The security component of the Jerusalem Plan calls for the restoration of law and order in Palestinian areas of the city where there is currently no security presence.
COMPLETE SECURITY BARRIER IN THE JERUSALEM ENVELOPE
The 'security fence' (the 'separation wall') will be completed along the Jerusalem envelope, and law enforcement measures will be intensified along its entire route in order to prevent the infiltration of illegal workers and smugglers from the West Bank into the city’s Palestinian and Israeli sections.
A vigorous enforcement program will be carried out to restore law and order to Palestinian villages and neighborhoods in 'East Jerusalem'. A robust, permanent security presence will be established in these areas, illegal weapons will be confiscated and nests of terror and crime will be destroyed.
NEW POLICE / BORDER FORCE
In order to achieve this, police and border police force will be augmented, new units will be recruited, trained and equipped and the required budgets allocated.
TEMPLE MOUNT STATUS QUO
The status quo on the Temple Mount will be scrupulously maintained. This will require the sensitive and intelligent management of the issue on both the security and policy levels in order to reduce friction and tension in and around the Temple Mount and prevent it from causing a religious strife.
