  Intifada - MSN Encarta
The intifada was loosely organized, and three main groups participated in the movement, including the United National Command, which included the principal factions of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO); the Islamic Resistance Movement, or Hamas; and the Islamic Jihad.
The intifada was a factor leading to the September 1993 Oslo Accords between the PLO and Israel.
In reaction to the second intifada, Israeli public opinion shifted noticeably to the right, and in February 2001 center-right politician Ariel Sharon, a vocal critic of returning the West Bank and Gaza Strip to Palestinian control, was elected prime minister.

In addition, the second Intifada, and especially the PA's refusal to prevent suicide bombings inside Israel - was viewed as a violation of a central pillar of the Oslo "grand bargain": the PLO's renunciation of violence.
Second, it reflected the fact that while emotionally most Arab publics identify with the Palestinians' plight, they are deeply divided about the extent to which their national resources should be mobilized on the Palestinians' behalf.
Second, given the enormous costs sustained by the Palestinian population in the West Bank and Gaza, it would not be easy for Arafat to explain why violence should be abandoned in the absence of meaningful Palestinian gains.

The seven years that passed between the beginning of the Oslo process and the outbreak of the second Intifada were characterized by fierce political struggles between the supporters of the Oslo agreement and its opponents - struggles that reached their tragic peak in the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
Since the beginning of the second Intifada, the Israeli media have provided their readers and viewers with a one-sided, partial, censored and biased picture of reality - a picture which seemingly supports the new hegemonic narrative.
Second, the events following the September 11 attack on the Twin Towers, and the ensuing American operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, created a sense of ideological confidence in the Israeli public, both in terms of the global “fight against terror” and the “patriotic” press coverage.

Where the first Intifada was characterized most memorably by Palestinian youths throwing stones at Israeli soldiers, the second Intifada has been far bloodier, taking on the aspects of armed conflict, guerilla warfare, and terrorist attacks.
But the second Intifada brought fear home to the streets of Israeli towns in the form of exploding buses and rocket attacks.
But the second Intifada rapidly took on the characteristics of armed combat between Israeli and Palestinian forces--with the Palestinian civilian demonstrators caught in the middle of the deadly cross-fire.

 Al-Ahram Weekly | AL-AQSA INTIFADA SPECIAL | The rise and fall of the Intifada
At its start, the Intifada -- the second in the history of Palestinian resistance of Israeli military occupation -- was viewed with pride among Arabs, at least at the public level.
The increasing official Arab impatience with the Palestinian Intifada was highlighted by the resolutions of the last Arab summit that took place in Beirut earlier this year, in which there is no reference to the uprising.
This said, the future of the Intifada, however, will not be determined by the level of official Arab support since, as many officials and observers would agree, no Arab official, including Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, is in a position to either halt or keep up the Intifada.

The first Intifada was not free of mistakes and problems, but at its root it expressed a sound revolutionary approach.
From the beginning, the Intifada took on the aspect of a social revolt, that is, resistance not only against Israeli rule, but also against the local establishment.
The leadership of the second Intifada had three heads, and as many goals, yet none of these were tuned to the needs of the people.

 Palestinian Children and the Second Intifada
Israeli government officials have falsely portrayed them as unwitting pawns of Palestinian gunmen who use them as human shields, and as the offspring of calculating parents who value their children’s lives as an economic commodity that they are willing to sacrifice for money.
As the intifada has intensified, the image of Palestinian children in Israel has become progressively melded with the faceless image of the “Palestinian terrorist.” In the international media, children are depicted as either stone-throwing youth or as casualty statistics, lying on a stretcher or in a morgue.
The conditions of children’s lives during this intifada are not new; they are simply an intensification of those experienced by previous generations of Palestinian children who have grown up under occupation.

A highly provocative move by Israeli politician Ariel Sharon was the act that triggered the second Intifada.
Seven Palestinians were killed in the fighting and thus the second Intifada - Intifadat al-Aqsa - was started.
The Intifada was – and still is - an expression of a deep disappointment and frustration over the ongoing disrespect and denial of basic rights for Palestinians caused by the occupation - including the right to free access to Jerusalem, security and development, and the refugees' right to return.

 Intifada
The word Intifada is Arabic and means "shaking off", because the Palestinians were trying to shake off the occupation by Israel.
It was largely a non-violent movement with such expressions as tax revolts, home education when schools were closed, etc. but did include rock throwing on the part of the Palestinians and gunfire from Israelis.
The second Intifada began in September 2000 after Ariel Sharon's appearance on the Haram ash-Sharif along with about 1000 armed soldiers and policemen.

 JURIST - Gans: The Refusal To Serve In The Occupied Territories In The Second Intifada
Barak’s second argument for distinguishing between selective and universal objection is that it is difficult to draw the line between someone who sincerely claims to be a conscientious objector and someone who objects to a specific policy of a particular government.
The second fear is that this recognition might turn the Israeli army into “an army of militias, consisting of different units, each one permitted to act in certain areas and forbidden to act in other areas”.
The second fear indicated by Barak, namely, that recognizing selective refusal might transform the IDF into many smaller armies, is also groundless.

Whoever thinks that the intifada broke out because of the despised Sharon’s visit to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, is wrong, even if this visit was the straw that broke the back of the Palestinian people.
This intifada was planned in advance, ever since President Arafat’s return from the Camp David negotiations, where he turned the table upside down on President Clinton...
The intifada began because of the desire to put an end to the occupation and because the Palestinians did not approve of the peace process in its previous form.

GAZA CITY, September 28 (IslamOnline.net and News Agencies) - The three-year-old Intifada has managed to inflict heavy losses on the Israeli occupation forces and should go non-stop, because it is the one and only way to liberate Palestine, Palestinians told IslamOnline.net, as thousands took to the streets to mark the third anniversary of the Intifada.
"When the (second) Intifada was sparked, analysts reckoned that it would last for a couple of weeks, but thank God it enters now its fourth year and the enemy has sustained heavy losses," said Mo'men Al-Dalw, 21.
"The Intifada is no longer about armless children and youths who stand up to the occupation forces with their military juggernaut, but it helped Palestinian factions develop their resistance techniques and architect more accurate operations to resist the occupation forces and force them out," he added.

 "The Use of Palestinian Children in the Al-Aqsa Intifada" by Justus Reid Weiner
One major difference between the current Al-Aqsa intifada and its predecessor, the original intifada of a decade ago, is the enormous increase in Palestinian firepower, primarily in the form of tens of thousands of assault rifles.
Palestinian sources have dubbed the current disturbances the "Al-Aqsa intifada." Intifada is the Arabic word for "uprising" or "shaking off" and Al-Aqsa is the mosque in Jerusalem which observant Moslems regard as their third holiest site, after Mecca and Medina.
The current Al-Aqsa intifada should be distinguished from the earlier intifada, which began in December 1987, had practically disappeared by the time of the Gulf War in January 1991, and ended with the commencement of the Oslo peace process in mid-1993.

 The Second Intifada - an Israeli Strategy
Ya'alon scolded the committee for revealing that the Israeli occupation army effectively provoked the Palestinians into escalating the violence during the first few months of the second intifada in order to give the army a pretext to hit hard on the Palestinian society and bully it into unconditional surrender.
On 29 June, for example, Reuven Pedatzur wrote in Ha'aretz that the number of Israeli casualties was so low that the army proudly cited the disproportionately large number Palestinians killed and maimed by Israeli forces as evidence "of the military victory and correctness of the policy of massive use of force".
Pappie concurred with Tarazi that the Palestinians would have preferred a low-combustion intifada with as little violence and bloodshed as possible had it not been for Israel's harsh response.
