First of all look at the numbers. Jewish attacks on Arabs are extremely rare. Take into account all of them, weekly, monthly, by the year, decade, century... YES CENTURY! The Jewish community here in the Land of Israel has suffered from Arab terrorism not only long before the 1967 Six Days War, but before the establishment of the State of Israel.
The amount of Jewish attacks on Arabs has been infinitesimal in comparison to Arab terrorist attacks on Jews!!
Every once in a while an individual Jew or a small group get together and say they have had enough and want to give the Arabs a taste of their own medicine. The results are always the same. From the reactions of the press here and abroad and the reactions of public figures near, far, Right and Left, you'd think that Jews have launched a nuclear bomb on an Arab village or perpetrated a holocaust.
There is a lot of justified frustration and anger among Jews here in Israel and all over the world. Our judicial and diplomatic systems are skewed against Jews and favor Arabs.
- Acts of Arab terror against Jews are judged as criminal acts and not as ideology or modern nazism.
- Convicted Arab terrorists, even those who murdered Jews, are released in all sorts of "deals."
- Capital Punishment aka the Death Penalty is not used on Arab terrorists who have murdered Jews.
