  Palestinian terrorism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The term Palestinian terrorism is commonly used to describe acts of political violence committed by Palestinian individuals or groups against Israelis, Jews, and nationals of other countries.
Palestinians assert that it is not realistic to expect the kind of control Israel demands from the PA to curtail these groups, as the PA does not have adequate law-enforcement resources, and has suffered infrastructural damage to much of its security apparatus during confrontations with the Israel Defense Force (IDF).
Palestinian terrorists have also exploited children in the aid of terror, mainly as human shields and bomb-transporters but also as suicide bombers.

 Palestinian political violence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Palestinian political violence refers to acts of violence committed for political reasons by Palestinian individuals or groups.
Palestinian groups that support and carry out acts of political violence include Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command, the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and the Abu Nidal Organization.
Prominent leaders of the Palestinian groups were Sheikh Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, who was shot and killed by English soldiers, and the pro-Nazi Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin Al-Husseini, who was deported.

 Palestinian Terrorism, from WUJS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Terrorism is the deliberate and systematic murder, maiming and menacing of the innocent in order to inspire fear for political purposes.
Palestinian terrorists seem to particularly target young people, such as in the bombing of down town Jerusalem on a Saturday night (December 1st 2001, 11 people killed all under 21) or a Tel Aviv disco where 21 teenagers were killed (June 1st 2001).
Most Palestinian children have been hurt due to their direct participation in violent confrontations, and a minority of the casualties were the unfortunate result of crossfire or return fire directed towards terrorist targets.

 Palestinian terrorism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The term Palestinian terrorism is commonly used for terrorist acts committed by Palestinian citizens and Palestinian organizations against Israeli Jews, and occasionally against nationals of other countries.
The attacks on Palestinian Jews by Palestinian Arabs predating the establishment of the state of Israel have culminated in the Jerusalem pogrom of April, 1920, the riots in Palestine of May, 1921, the 1929 Hebron massacre and the Great Uprising of 1936-1939.
Prominent leaders of Palestinian terror groups were Sheikh Izz ad-Din al-Qassam (hanged by the British) and the pro-Nazi Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin Al-Husseini (deported).

 Responding to Palestinian terrorism - The Record - Opinion
Over time, the Palestinian residents of these villages will place the blame where it should be placed: directly on the Palestinian terrorists who engaged in terrorism against Israel with full knowledge that the consequence would be the destruction of their homes.
But the reality is that Palestinian terrorism has widespread support within the Palestinian authority, and those who applaud and lionize suicide bombers share in the culpability for the murder of civilians.
The land that would be surrendered by the future Palestinian state in response to every terrorist act would be annexed to Israel and be deemed a permanent part of the Jewish state, ceded to it by the acts of the terrorists.

Jerusalem----September 27......A Palestinian terrorist broke into a Jewish settlement in the West Bank on Friday and opened fire in a home where a family was marking the Jewish New Year, murdering a man and a toddler and shattering Israel's peace and security efforts to maintain calm over the holiday.
The Israeli capture of the Karine A terror ship off Gaza last year with tons of weapons was further proof of Arafat's duplicity as he spoke of the "peace of the brave" while coordinating dozens of acts of Palestinian terrorism.

 ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN CONFLICT: PALESTINIAN TERRORISM
Accusation: The Palestinian use of terror is understandable and legitimate as it is their only weapon against the oppression of Israeli Occupation.
For the Palestinians there is even less justification as they chose a path of terror whilst in the middle of a peaceful solution that was reaping results.
Rebuttal: Since Israeli occupation is frequently used to legitimate terrorism it is worth noting that as a result of the implementation of the Oslo Peace Agreements approximately 99% of Palestinians living in the West Bank or Gaza Strip live under the jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority.

 Bush is rewarding terrorism - article by Daniel Pipes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
He should have told the Palestinians clearly and unequivocally that their 21-month campaign of violence against Israel is unacceptable and must conclude before any discussion of rewards can be started.
It is untenable for Palestinians to live in squalor and occupation." To see the error of this statement, change it to "It is untenable for American citizens to live in terror.
A Palestinian state that continues to seek the destruction of the Jewish state by nature cannot be democratic.

 Israel's War For Terrorism
In spite of that, Palestinian terrorism is alive and killing.
But every terror attack enables Israel to implement the next steps in its premeditated plans, and to sell it to the world as "self-defence", "retaliation", "prevention" etc. No wonder, then, that none of these plans actually stops terrorism: they are not meant to.
Palestinian terrorism thus serves Israel's interests on both an international and a national level.

 Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Female Suicide Bombers
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s efforts to recruit women for suicide attacks begins with the identification of potential candidates in northern West Bank Universities, as well as in towns and villages.
In a traditional orthodox society such as Palestinian society, a woman of her age (27) who is still unmarried inevitably faces the question of why she is still single.
The tactical and operational modus operandi of Palestinian suicide attacks is well understood and has been mapped in its all shapes and forms, including the chain of events from recruitment throughout preparation and launching of the attack.

 counter terrorism fundemental islam defeat terrorism palestine palestinian
This also has objective reasons: the Palestinian state — the one from the Bush vision or the Beilin dream — is a dwarf country, territorially splintered, and devoid of any economic infrastructures or resources.
Terror is a first rate cause of political blindness and of the phenomenon of hallucinations and illusions.
Terror distorts its victims’ judgment, it makes them feel as if they share the guilt, develop dependency on the aggressor, and have baseless faith that a simple solution to the situation is hiding around the nearest corner.

 The Unique Cowardice Of Palestinian Terrorism
And while Palestinian propaganda, funded heavily from Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Iraq, always seeks to suggest equivalence between Arab terror and Israeli counterterror, there is a longstanding and meaningful difference between premeditated murder and unintentional casualties of essential self-defense against murder.
If the Palestinians are to be blamed at all, we hear from almost all educated quarters, responsibility belongs only to Hamas, or to Islamic Jihad, or perhaps to Nobel laureate Arafat's Fatah.
The cowardice of the Palestinian terrorist is unparalleled in the history of insurgent warfare.

 Barbarism Disguised As "Resistance": The True Meaning Of Palestinian Terrorism
This is not to suggest, by any means, that frenzied Palestinian terrorists do not eagerly seek to produce dead Israelis (including infants held by their mothers), but only that leaving live Jewish witnesses is an essential part of the drama.
In the fashion of the torturer, the Palestinian terrorist takes what is usually private and incommunicable, the pain contained within the boundaries of the sufferer's own body, and uses it to affect the behavior of others.
All terrorism intends to change a prospective victim's general awareness that "All persons must die" to the more specific awareness, "I must die - and maybe soon." Insofar as a resort to vastly more destructive forms of terror could hasten this change, such resort should certainly not be dismissed out of hand.

 Here Is the Way to Counter Palestinian Terrorism - Council on Foreign Relations
To state this truth is not to condone terrorism but to note the obvious fact that this government, with its focus on violent retaliation entirely unrelated to a political process which offers a viable alternative to violence, is putting its citizens at vastly increased risk.
And it is to argue that policies which reinforce the despair of Palestinians by killing their hope for an end to the occupation will inevitably fuel escalating violence.
The argument that terrorism will not abate even if Palestinians achieve a state of their own is neither self-evident nor reasonable.

 Terrorism Vs. Occupation
Terrorism is the most popular term in Middle East media coverage, and still people want me to talk about it too.
Terrorism is pervasive: it threatens all Israelis; Occupation is even more pervasive: all Palestinians are under occupation, and as we have seen above, while terrorism can get Israelis in pizza places or discos, occupation visits Palestinians in bed, either by a missile or because some Shin Bet agent wants to flmail them into collaboration.
Terrorism is horrible; but occupation is too, and the former is the result of the latter.

 Voices of Youth - How should the international community have reacted to Palestinian terrorism?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The Jews who were subject to the Holocaust didn't try to terrorize German babies or children; the French underground was very careful in who they directed their attacks at.
Palestinian terrorism has to be stopped by the European community but because the European community hasn't done that, Israel is forced into a position where it has to retaliate.
The Palestinians had been offered 93 percent or something of what they wanted and they turned it down and they were actually looked at very negatively by the European community.

Americans have been dying at the hands of Palestinian terrorists for decades, yet the US government and media rarely if ever portray Yasser Arafat and his lieutenants as avowed enemies of the United States.
Arafat and the Palestinian Authority were quick to distance themselves from the murder of the three Americans.
If that doesn't happen, this much is sure: the 49th, 50th, and 51st Americans to lose their lives to Palestinian terror will not be the last.

This article explores various issues related to Palestinian suicide terrorism by presenting a two-phase model to explain the processes and factors underlying the development of Palestinian suicide bombers, and the execution of suicide bombing attacks.
This is especially true for suicide terrorism, which almost without exception has only been used as part of a systematic campaign to persuade a government to withdraw from territory the group considers its own.
Reports that the Palestinian armed HAMAS is urging Iraqis to use suicide as a weapon against invading troops, as Muslim preachers in the Gaza Strip inveighed against war in Iraq.

 How Arafat's Palestinian Authority Became an "Entity Supporting Terrorism"
Indeed, U.S. and Israeli diplomats drew a distinction between their PLO peace partners and the fundamentalist "enemies of peace" whom, it was assumed, were trying to undermine the Palestinian Authority.
By September 2001, both engaged in terrorism everywhere, yet at least fifty percent of terrorist attacks against Israelis were conducted by Force-17 or Tanzim, forces directly loyal to Yasser Arafat.
Its weaponry was smuggled in the car of a key Palestinian Authority Security Chief, General Abdul Razek Yehiye, who also serves as an aide to Yasser Arafat and has benefited from immunity at Israeli checkpoints due to his VIP pass (Ma'ariv, November 26, 2001).
