There has been a stalemate for many decades now. A Palestinian may knife or shoot a jew. When this happens often enough, the jews send in the army and kill a bunch of civilians. After a time, both stop, only to restart later.
There are crimes against people and crimes against property.
People are infinitely replaceable. The only purpose the average citizen serves is to pay his taxes. There are tears and a funeral, then life goes on. Nothing has changed. This is true even if 5000 citizens die in a day, as with 911.
Why haven’t the Palestinians attacked the water supply? Electricity? Shut down commerce by attacking in malls? Destroyed the sewer lines? The strategic dimension demands making a….….. move in order to draw a mistake several moves later.
One has to conclude that the Palestinians don’t want to win.
One has to be careful to avoid making revolution a “business.” There is a point in any group’s history when risks must be taken in order to win. One cannot play it completely safe.
Golden Dawn and the IRA are two groups that failed to make this step. Both groups have a measure of political power now, but far from what they first envisioned. The National Socialists, on the other hand, pushed all the way to the top. If you’re going to start, finish.
