One terror attack was a stabbing by an Arab terrorist in Tel Aviv, and the other was a drive by shooting in Gush Etzion.
...A Palestinian who drove from the direction of the Kfar Etzion junction, machined gunned the cars, with an automatic rifle, before hitting a vehicle. Security forces surrounded the terrorist and arrested him......Earlier on Thursday, a Palestinian terrorist stabbed three people in south Tel Aviv, killing two of them and wounding another... (Jerusalem Post)Are we supposed to be puzzled or warned by those two locations?
Tel Aviv and Gush Etzion-- until not all that long ago, both locations (the residents of them of course) felt supremely confident that they were not in danger. According to the wisdom of Tel Aviv, the Arabs only wanted land "conquered/occupied" sic since the 1967 Six Days War. That meant that places like Tel Aviv were immune, because in mind/mentality of the Israeli elite, Arabs could be convinced that they (the Israeli elite) are their allies in establishing a Palestinian sic state. And for the longest time, residents of Gush Etzion considered themselves much safer in the diplomatic sense at least, because they claimed a "consensus" of approval by successive Israeli governments that they would always be part of the State of Israel, unlike the Shomron, Binyamin or Hebron etc.
This recent so-called "Third Intifada" has proven these two myths to be lies. The percentage of deadly Arab terror attacks in pre-1967 Israel and Gush Etzion is very high, and I wonder if the residents and Israel's movers and shakers are willing to comprehend and absorb the bloody lesson the Arab terrorists are teaching.
The aim of the Fatah, Hamas meaning PA-Palestinian Authority is the total destruction of the State of Israel replacing it with a Palestinian terror state. As far as they and their international supporters are concerned, there's no difference between Tel Aviv and Tel Tzion, Afula and Eli, Hebron and Hadera.
For the State of Israel to survive we must cease all support for a State of Palestine aka the "Two State Solution." And all of the Land still in Israel's hands must be fully annexed and put under full Israeli Sovereignty. The Death Penalty must be the only punishment for Arab terrorists whether they succeed in murdering or not. No more second chances!!!
