And you thought we had no terror attacks

You - yes you - thought we had no terror attacks didn't you? Well, here are some statistics for the first six months of the year.
In short, five people -- a civilian Thai worker, a policeman and three soldiers -- were murdered, and a soldier was killed by friendly fire. Two Israelis were critically wounded, nine were moderately wounded, and 232 were lightly hurt in terror attacks or while fighting against terrorists.

A total of 139 rockets were fired during the six months, while 130 Arabs were apprehended with knives, of whom 22 admitted intending to perpetrate a terror attack. There were 60 shooting attacks, bombs, missiles fired, and attempted infiltrations at the Gaza border fence.

There were three documented attacks in which Arab drivers attempted to run down Israelis in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem; four people were lightly hurt. Other such attacks have been suspected, but as yet not proven.

Thirty-eight bombs were discovered throughout Judea and Samaria, while 218 people were hurt in rock attacks and Arab violence, including 56 civilians, among them three children.
And you wanted to pull the IDF back?

No - the real surprise is none of this is news. Israel has never known a day of peace since its creation. And that isn't going to change in the future.

Its just something that is taken for granted, like the weather, that Israel has to live with as its lot in life. No one asks the other side to show goodwill and cease its real and verbal attacks upon the Jewish State to create a basis for peace.

Go figure.
