Jerusalem, Israel (AP) For some of the Jewish communities in Jerusalem, the city’s bustling streets and trendy restaurants offer a respite from the everyday grind of everyday life.
For others, the same neighborhoods where they live are a place of terror and danger.
For some of those, the fear is a lot greater.
That’s because the same groups of men are the most dangerous people on the streets of Jerusalem, where they commit at least 11 percent of all crimes against Israelis, according to the Israeli police.
They are also among the most likely to be involved in crimes.
The problem is compounded by the fact that most of the attacks that kill Jews are committed by members of a tiny minority of the citys Jewish population.
For the rest of the population, it’s not a huge problem.
But for a small group of men, it is a deadly one.
And now, for the first time in years, the Israeli government is trying to tackle this problem by putting in place new legislation that will make it easier for authorities to identify and track down those behind violent attacks.
That legislation was announced on Friday and will go into effect in mid-May.
In addition to increasing the number of people who are required to have a criminal record and making it easier to identify people who commit crimes, the legislation will also increase the number that are required for security and law enforcement agencies to act on tips about people involved in terror attacks.
According to the draft legislation, any person who “may be a part of a terror attack that threatens public security” will have to register as a security threat, as well as get a criminal background check.
He or she will also have to undergo an intensive mental health evaluation.
And the person will have access to the information gathered from these background checks.
Those who commit a terror act will also be subject to a three-year residency requirement.
The law also requires that they register with the police within 30 days.
And if they fail to do so within the allotted time, they will be barred from holding public office or working in a public position.
The draft law is meant to combat a threat that’s become increasingly serious since the death of terrorist Dawabsha Barghouti, a 31-year-old Palestinian who was shot and killed by Israeli police last year.
According to Palestinian sources, the two were in the midst of a confrontation when Barghoutsi pulled out a gun and opened fire at them.
Barghiesi’s death sparked a wave of anger in Jerusalem and the surrounding areas.
In the aftermath of Barghouthi’s killing, the police and the military announced that they were tightening up their rules to make it harder for people to carry out attacks.
They also increased their efforts to prevent attacks by establishing a special unit, called “Special Units for Security,” that patrols the city, looking for individuals who commit “terrorist acts” in order to detain them.
The units are not authorized to carry guns and can only enter the neighborhoods where the attacks take place.
The legislation has sparked a flurry of activity in the city.
On Friday, an Israeli police officer stationed at the southern border with Jordan opened fire on two Palestinians and wounded two others during an argument at a bus station.
He was later arrested and charged with murder and attempted murder.
The suspect was later shot and died in hospital.
On Sunday, Israeli police shot and wounded an armed Palestinian in the northern West Bank city of Hebron after he opened fire with a pistol at them from a passing vehicle.
The Jerusalem district that houses the West Bank’s most populated area, Ein Kerem, has seen a spike in violence in recent weeks.
Last week, three Israeli settlers were killed and three Palestinians were wounded when a Palestinian threw a rock at a police car near the town’s main intersection.
The security legislation will only go into force if it is approved by Israel’s Knesset, which has a relatively small number of members.
But some activists are concerned about the impact it might have on other parts of the country where the legislation is also expected to be passed.
In the meantime, many of the people who will be required to register to carry a gun will be able to carry it in their homes, the majority of whom will be Jewish, according a number of activists who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
They say the bill is needed because there are a large number of Israeli Arabs living in the neighborhoods that have been targeted by attacks.
The AP spoke to a number, including an 18-year old Israeli Arab man who lives in Jerusalem’s Ein Karem neighborhood and a 24-year older man who was stabbed in the neck by an Israeli Arab teenager who had recently been released from jail.
Both men are now in critical condition.
The AP visited the home of the 18-years-old man on Friday morning.
He says his family is preparing for a funeral for him.
The 18-yo is not the only Jewish man who’s had his home attacked.
In recent weeks, at least
