Terror Is Hamas' Only Tool

While recent attacks on Israel and her people have been blamed on lone wolf terrorists, that is not the case. Writing at JNS, Fiamma Nirenstein says that the responsibility for terrorist violence is on Hamas and its encitement of the Palestinian people:

After Israel buried another two young soldiers—Sgt. Netanel Kahalani, 20, and Capt. Ziv Deus, 21, who were killed on March 16 by a Palestinian terrorist after he rammed his car into a group of soldiers (two others were injured in the attack) along a road southwest of Jenin—Israeli troops on the border with Gaza blew up two more tunnels built with the intent of allowing terrorists to again enter the Jewish state.

Two days later, more blood was spilled, this time in an attack in Jerusalem’s Old City. Adiel Coleman, a 32-year-old Israel father of four (initially identified as a security guard), was standing outside the entrance of the Western Wall—one of Israel’s most symbolic places—when he was stabbed in the chest and belly; he succumbed to his wounds on Sunday night. The terrorist was chased down and immediately killed at the scene. The assailant was identified as Abd al-Rahman Bani Fadel, 28, a father of two from the village of Aqraba, near Nablus, was perhaps inspired by the magnificent opportunity to kill a Jew at Temple Mount, which is known to Muslims as “the Noble Sanctuary.”

It’s time to stop talking about “lone wolves”; this boils down to Palestinian incitement.

The Palestinians strategic use of terrorism is widely accepted among the masses. It accounts for thousands of deaths, it attacks Jewish sovereignty, and it aims to terrorize not solely some people, but a whole people by inducing it to fight in order to free the Islamic Ummah. This choice, nourished by religious precepts related to jihad—that of shaheed, “martyrs”—has infected the entire Muslim world. This is the main task that it has set its sights upon—not to build a state, which the Palestinians have refused...
