https://isgap.org/flashpoint/palestinian-violence-and-failure-of-leadership/

I am disheartened and worried about the violence being perpetrated in Israel by my fellow Palestinians. This recent wave of violence started at the Al-Aqsa mosque, in East Jerusalem, and extended to the rest of East Jerusalem, to the West Bank, and then to all of Israel does not seem to have any positive consequences […]
