What's an enabler? It's someone, or in our context it could be an individual, or a family, a group, ideology, country or organization, that, although possibly unintentionally, encourages and/or makes possible the continuation of negative, dangerous, abusive, deadly or addictive behavior.Every time somebody says they can understand the Arabs' "frustration" aka terrorism, they are acting as enablers. They are making excuses for terrorist attacks, whether it be against individuals or nations. I would expand this to Israeli "centrists" like Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu who believes that by improving the Arabs' financial situation, raising their standard of living, they will reject terrorism.
"We must weave an economic peace alongside a political process," Netanyahu said. "That means that we have to strengthen the moderate parts of the Palestinian economy by handing rapid growth in those area, rapid economic growth that gives a stake for peace for the ordinary Palestinians."The basis of this philosophy/ideology is that it's poverty that is a legitimate and understandable cause of terrorist activity.
The truth about Arab terrorist leaders is that they usually come from the upper classes, the most educated. Poor people are too busy trying to earn a living and are more pragmatic. I see the Arab customers in Sha'ar Binyamin shopping in Rami Levy and Yafiz. They are of the lower and middle class financially and educationally. The upper-class can afford to shop in the fancy stores of Ramalla or go to Europe, Dubai, Kuwait and the United States.

For example, the "PA Finance Minister," sic, recently asked for aid to take over and develop land under Israel's control.
Minister of Finance Nabeel Kassis asked the Ad-Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC) meeting New York on Sunday to help the Palestinian Authority to reclaim area C of the West Bank, which is under full Israeli control.If they do this the Ad-Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC) is enabling the terrorists to defy international agreements and endanger Israel. The division of the Land in Judea and Samaria was part of the 1993 Oslo Accords. Admittedly, I totally oppose that agreement, because in the long run it's dangerous for the security and viability of the State of Israel.
Israel has suffered from Arab terrorism since before the State was even established in 1948, which obviously predates the 1967 Six Days War which resulted in the liberation by Israel of the Golan Heights (from Syria,) the Sinai (from Egypt,) the Jordan Valley, Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem (all from Jordan.) During the nineteen 19 years that Jordan controlled those areas there was a population drain from all sectors. Jordan did nothing to develop those areas. Since June, 1967, under Israeli rule, the areas have thrived and Arabs do whatever they can to move there.
Immediately after the war Israeli Jews could safely travel all over Judea, Samaria, Golan etc. The local Arabs accepted their military defeat. It was only when the Israeli Leftist politicians, "thinkers," media and various international bodies encouraged the idea that Israeli rule was just temporary that the Arabs began to rebel against it and terrorize Jews. With every "peace agreement" our security lessened.
So simply put, Appease aka Peace Now, their international supporters and all of those supporting Arab rule here are terrorist enablers.
