The Palestinian Way of War: Preparing for the "March of Return" in Gaza

(Jerusalem Post) Hillel Frisch - The latest Palestinian idea to achieve international media attention is to hold a massive procession of 100,000 Gazans to storm the Israeli security fence around Gaza. The immediate objective is less to kill Israelis than to get Gazans killed, creating the graphics and funerals that will delegitimize Israel. Hamas hopes this will lead to a wide-scale intifada and self-initiated suicide terrorist acts in the West Bank and among Israel's Arab citizens. The Israeli army will do everything to thwart the protesters in ways that avoid bloodshed. The Palestinian organizations, from the PLO and PA downward, want the shedding of blood.
