Knife Terrorism by the Palestinians, by Strategy Page.
In the West Bank and Israel the Fatah sponsored “knife terrorism” campaign continues to fade.
In eight months the knife terrorism left 28 Israelis (plus four foreigners) and 203 Palestinians dead. While Palestinians have lost enthusiasm for making attacks, opinion surveys in the West Bank and Gaza still show a lot of support for the attacks, especially among the young (15-29) people who most often participate. Yet attacks have sharply declined (by over 80 percent) since the first ones last October.
The Palestinian leaders hoped that, at the very least, the knife terrorism would do some damage to the Israeli economy. That did not work as the current unemployment rate in Israel is 4.9 percent, which is the lowest it’s been since the 1980s.
Lovely neighbors. Which side do you suppose political correctness is on?
