Benjamin Netanyahu famously said that “if Palestine were to lay down their guns tomorrow, there would be no war. If Israel were to lay down theirs, there would be no Israel.”
It doesn’t take much research to validate such a claim. If electing a terrorist organization to their government wasn’t enough, multiple polls show a majority of Palestinians supporting terror against innocent Israelis.
Last Monday, yet another Palestinian terror attack was carried out against Israel, this one on a bus in Jerusalem. This was the first bus bombing in a number of years.
If the Palestinian reaction is any indication: they do not want peace. Watch below, in video obtained by Breitbart as Palestinians cheer on the attacks.
When an Israeli soldier shot and killed a wounded Palestinian – after the Palestinian tried to stab someone – Israeli political and military leaders quickly condemned the act. The soldier has been charged with manslaughter. Contrast that swift expression of outrage with the hero’s treatment Palestinian demonstrators gave to Abdel-Hamid Abu Srour. He was a Hamas terrorist who blew himself up Monday on a Jerusalem bus. Twenty innocent people were wounded.
When Abu Srour’s identity was released, hundreds of demonstrators marched near his home near Bethlehem.
By the way – I should mention that there was only one fatality from the bombing – the bomber himself.
