The savage Muslims who slaughter Jews in Israel just as Muslims in America and Europe reject surveillance of jihad-terror linked mosques. Same thing. Same jihad.
Not only do they reject any measures, they will light cities on fire in protests in Europe and the US to insure that their holy war continues. Terrorism works, the West has showed them that.
Muslims reject surveillance cameras installed at Temple Mount
Police seek to replace metal detectors with security cameras. Waqf rejects all security measures to prevent terror attacks.

The only thing we want is to ensure no one can enter with weapons again and carry out another attack,” he told Ynet.
In an interview with BBC Arabic he said: “I want to call on our neighbors in Arab countries, and on Muslims in general: If someone has an idea how to prevent another attack and promise worshipers that there won’t be
