Video: Is Jerusalem facing a third 'intifadeh?'; 20% of terror attacks involve E. Jerusalem Arabs

My gut reaction to the question is "eventually and maybe even now." (For the uninitiated, the first 'intifadeh' took place from 1988-92 and the second - sometimes called the Oslo War or the Oslo Terror War after the Oslo accords which led to it - took place from 2000-2004). Watch the video and then I want to point out a couple of things.

I want to make two small points. First, note that the report continues the pretense that there is a difference between Fatah and Hamas other than a tactical one. As I have noted many times in the past, there is no difference between Fatah's and Hamas' ultimate goals. It's time for us to stop pretending anything else is the case.

Second, I found the 20% figure - that 20% of all terror attacks involve 'east' Jerusalem Arabs - shocking. There really needs to be a way to deport or otherwise punish the families of those who commit terror attacks, since it is really the only possible deterrent to those who are willing to be killed or killed themselves in order to murder Jews. But given that the Olmert-Barak-Livni government still has not destroyed the home of the terrorist who murdered eight young boys two weeks ago, can we really expect this government to do anything about 'east' Jerusalem Arabs on a broader scale?

With the Israeli government deploying the police to protect Arabs from Jews, there's little doubt a third intifadah is brewing. The Israeli leadership is in deep denial. Its only a matter of time before a major wave of Arab terror against Jews erupts in Israel.
