because there seems to be no end in sight to this current insane increase in violence, with more and more Palestinians attacking Israelis with knives. There seems to be no explanation, either, as no one is taking credit for organizing or encouraging the crazy attacks. Just today, two more Palestinians were shot dead when they pulled knives and attempted to attack people. One of today's Palestinian dead was killed by a civilian that he had targeted, who turned out to be carrying a handgun for protection. Knives vs guns. I predict that this campaign of murder is going to backfire. As the news story linked below reports, Israelis have spent countless millions in security to guard against suicide bombers. But how do you defend yourself from a maniac with a knife, bent on killing you?? So far, 8 Israelis and 32 Palestinians have died in this outbreak. Both Amnesty International and the Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories condemned public officials yesterday for encouraging civilians to arm themselves. They have also complained that Israeli security forces are too quick in shooting people merely armed with knives. Some of the slain attackers have only been teenagers. Palestinian leaders are labeling the shootings as being illegal executions, without any due process given to the knife wielders. http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/17/middleeast/israel-palestinian-tensions/ .
