From the outset, Israel unwisely tried to include Arabs in Israeli life.
To this day, they continue to allow Arabs Palestinians within the borders, in a misguided belief that co-existence is possible.
The time is far past for Israel to act more wisely, exiling Arabs who will not
sign on to a statement that Israel has a right to exist, and that they have a
right to the land of Israel itself as allocated under post WWI international
law and treaties, including the Faisal Weizmann Agreement of 1919, which assigned all of Palestine aka The Land of Israel for the Jewish National Home, while the Arabs at that time received over 12 million sq. mi. with a wealth of oil reserves. That includes the new Arab state of Jordan which is situated on Jewish historical land and established by the British in violation of Agreements of post WWI.
You don't take a scorpion or poisonous snake in an embrace, and then express surprise that you were stung or bitten.

In addition, Israel has to take complete control of the Temple Mount area and Judea and Samaria, shooting any rock throwers, and expelling any Muslims who abuse non-Muslims there and anywhere else, either physically or verbally.

Israel has to respond to any threat, including rockets launched at Israel with expedited and uncompromising response with zero tolerance.
Until the Israelis act wisely and forcefully, Israel will continue to be vulnerable to attacks from within.
It's not acceptable or reasonable, and the reality of Arab/Muslim hatred must be acknowledged and acted upon expeditiously.
