Incitement Behind Rise In Palestinian Terror Attacks

Hamas and PIJ say they are working to ignite a new intifada against Israel, especially in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

By KHALED ABU TOAMEH

It’s hard to point to a specific reason for the latest wave of terrorist attacks in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

What is certain, however, is that the attacks are the result of the ongoing and increasing incitement against Israel by Palestinian officials, factions and media outlets.

The attacks are also the result of calls by Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and other Gaza-based groups for stepping up the “resistance” against Israel.

Hamas and PIJ say they are working to ignite a new intifada (uprising) against Israel, especially in Jerusalem and the West Bank. They want to take the fight against Israel to the streets of Jerusalem and the West Bank, while keeping the situation in the Gaza Strip calm.

Hamas, PIJ and their followers know that an attack in Jerusalem or the West Bank can gain more attention in the media than another military confrontation with Israel in the Gaza Strip.
