Hatred for Jews is total; hatred for Israelis is secondary. So we find out such things from a discovered plot to attack the Jewish holy site of Joseph's Tomb with explosives and machine gun the Jewish worshippers. This attack was uncovered by Shin Bet before August 25, 2015 when cleared for publication. Terror attacks have increased. Their hatred is so strong that they were willing to destroy this holy site, holy even to Muslims, in order to kill a few Jewish worshippers.
Joseph's tomb has been venerated throughout the ages by Jews,Samaritans, Christians and Muslims." So if it is so venerated so much by Muslims, why would they want to kill Jews praying there and spill blood? The attackers intended to kill and to destroy this Jewish holy place.
Centuries later, Shechem was populated by Samaritans, who were a mixed people made up of Israelites descended from the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh and Cutheans brought in from Assyria, and it remained the cult center of the Samaritans. The religion of Judaism changed with them and stayed as a primitive form of Judaism except that the whole Bible of the Samaritans is only the Pentateuch, a pre-Masoretic text with Samaritan variants, changing the original places, making Mt. Gerizim the place Moses received the 10 Commandments, etc.

The Israeli security forces, Shin Bet, arrested 4 terrorists belonging to a cell. One was Muhamad Damiri, a Palestinian policeman! Another was Nisim Damiri, an old time member of Tanzim, the armed wing of Fatah. Of course, we all know that Fatah is headed still by 80 year old Mahmoud Abbas, known to the West as the moderate Arab and the PA's president. It is only Hamas, the break-off group of Fatah who are labeled by the USA as terrorists. Also arrested were Yasir Zarukri, Hamas terrorist, and Aduen Nazei, Islamic Jihad terrorist. It looks like these 4 representatives worked together for a change when the goal was to kill Jews and destroy their holy sites. They were part of an Islamic Jihad cell run by Mohammed Darwish.

1. The Oslo Accords required the PA to apprehend and imprison terrorists.
2. They were obligated to disarm and outlaw terrorist groups.
3. They were to extradite terrorists to Israel.
They haven't done these things and Western nations have not cared as long as it did not affect themselves. Kerry has kept on pounding for a Palestinian state to be created knowing they act according to their own wishes. . I bet he'd change his tune if he lived in Israel.
The Peace process is coming up again in conversation with John Kerry bustling himself to Israel at a time of when the Arabs are going berserk in Jerusalem and trying to knife unsuspecting Jews on the streets and in buses.
A Palestinian state must be peaceful and its rulers would combat terrorism. 20 years of PA self-rule has proven otherwise. Now look at what they are doing. They are trying to start a 3rd Intifada with Abbas telling his people to act out and knife Jews, with others inciting that they should also carry guns now. They won't be getting those from Israel, I assure you.
This attack had nothing to do with "occupied territory." That wasn't their beef. It was pure out and out hatred for Jews that they have been taught since swaddled babies in their mother's arms, a brainwashed people. There are all kinds of agencies in Israel trying to bring peace between the groups and working together, but these 4 must have worked hard to bypass them as all those involved in knifing Jews in Jerusalem and Bethlehem and on buses in Israel the past few weeks. All the while, the head of PA state have instigated their rebellious acts and killings, calling out for them to do so. It's reminiscent of the days in 1929 of Haj Amin al-Husseini, Sherif of Jerusalem, who did the same thing.
