Are Terrorists Really Victims?

For the past several months, Israel has been under siege as a wave of Palestinian attacks, popularly called the “stabbing intifada” has brought to terror to the streets of the country. Individuals and groups of Palestinians have sought out random Jews — or people that they believe are Jews — to murder with knives, guns and any other weapon to hand. The result has been a surge in bloodshed with many if, not most of the Palestinian attackers, bent on carrying out their murderous intentions even in the presence of police, security forces or the army, being killed or wounded during the course of their attacks.
