The Palestinian Jihad

(Gatestone Institute) Bassam Tawil - This is not a "popular uprising." We are not seeing thousands of Palestinians participating in violence or protests. It is just another wave of terrorism: targeting Jews for being Jews. Most Palestinians see Israel as one big settlement that needs to be uprooted and destroyed. They do not draw a distinction between a Jew living in a West Bank settlement and a Jew living in an Israeli city. The terrorists do not see a difference between an Israeli soldier and an Israeli baby. They do not ask their victims about their political affiliation before sticking a knife into them. The appropriate term for the current wave of terrorism is "jihad" (holy war). The attacks on Jews in Israel and the West Bank are part of the global jihad that has been waged for many years against Jews in particular, non-Muslims in general, and even against other Muslims who might follow a differing version of Islam.
