Since October 2015, young Palestinians have been stabbing everyone near them, mostly with kitchen knives from their homes. They're almost committing suicide by their actions for they have to be stopped, and in such a frenzy that they have worked themselves into, there's one main solution before they kill, to stop them by any means.

And just what is the cause? It is the mistaken belief that Israel belongs to the Palestinians. It didn't belong to them in the ancient days and it doesn't belong to them in today's world. Even by the middle of the 1800's there were very few Arabs living in Palestine. I'll tell you why.
2. Palestinians? Jews and Arabs were referred to this name if they were living in Palestine, the name given by the Romans. The Arabs entered the land following the Russian Jews who came in the 1880's and earlier escaping the pogroms and anti-Semitism they had been suffering under during these past 1,000 years being homeless.The Arabs were seeking jobs from the Jews who were creating a country again.

As a culture, the two people could not be more different. To L'Chaim is a Jewish saying meaning "To Life!" Arabs live in a world of loving death, a martyr's death which gives them 72 virgins in their netherworld. It is said that if a Jewish man or woman has to go to the doctor and doesn't like what he says, he'll go to another, for life is the goal. We have to beat the odds and live. The result is that we have excellent doctors who know their stuff. When a Jew dies, he dies and waits for the Messiah to come and recall those deceased again. As we die, we say the Shema if at all possible. We go to join our fathers. A premature death is looked upon as a great misfortune, and we hope to die in a good OLD age. May we all live till age 120 like Moses.
Yet, Jews and Muslims are not Christians, so are lumped together by people expecting them to live together peacefully because why? That they each believed in ONE G'd? That should be glue that is the common ingredient to keep the peace, but each hears something different in their own teachings. There are parts of the Koran that teach hatred for Jews, just as the Christian Bible has in the Gospels. These negative parts seem to make far more impact on their people than any lesson in the Koran teaching peace or the Bible teaching love, at least as far as Jews are concerned. Ever since Abraham gave Ishmael and Isaac life, the two branches have had their disagreements-really like any half-brothers might. They were different and their descendants still differ.
Jews have NOT been occupiers of the Palestinians. Look at Gaza. They've been under the Hamas spell ever since their one bout with voting. I still think it was a rigged vote unless the brain-washing was already in effect against Israel, and it probably was. As for Judea and Samaria, they have been under Fatah's ruling from Abbas. It's been a disaster as well. They're been given tons of money by their friends and where has it gone? Down tunnels that lead to kidnapping or killing Israelis. It's a shame, too, because Israel had great plans for the Palestinians and were going to have a life like living in Utopia if they had been willing.
Israel is made up of people who have been successful under horrid conditions themselves, blessed with intelligence. They've produced more than their share of outstanding people, and some of their energy was going into making a peaceful part of that world for both Palestinians and themselves.

Really, the only people hurt today after Israel's 67 years of existence and G-d willing, thousands more in the future, are the Arabs who have cheated themselves out of happy productive life. By refusing to accept peace with the Jews and thereby accepting their own state-they have been in constant turmoil. They've given the Jews a terribly rough go of it, who have continued to live and prosper and to be creative. Adversity is something the Jews sadly have become used to dealing with.
