In recent months Israelis and Palestinians have been rocked by a surge in violent assaults. Attacks by often very young Palestinians with no history of extremism have terrorized Israelis, often sparking a vigilante response. From Oct. 1 to Nov. 27, 19 Jewish Israelis, a visiting U.S. Jew and an Arab from the West Bank have been killed by Palestinian assailants; most died by knife or gunshot wounds. Other attacks, including those by driving an automobile into people, have left scores injured. Most of the perpetrators acted alone or with one or two others. During that same time, 93 Palestinians have been killed, some in clashes with security forces, but about 60 being shot by Israeli citizens – police and civilians – during, after or in anticipation of attacks. One Eritrean migrant was beaten to death by an Israeli mob that mistook him for an attacker. Why is this happening? How can it be stopped?
