Israel, Palestinians and Violence in Gaza and the West Bank

December 26, 1987

Tiny Israel has made the front page of the Los Angeles Times again (Dec. 21), and again Israel is the scapegoat; indirectly damned for the violence and unrest perpetrated and orchestrated by agitators ready and even eager to sacrifice Arab lives in a blatant attempt to damage Israel's world image.

How clever the agitators are. They know precisely which words are needed to spark and fuel uprisings designed to bring swift Israeli retaliation--their desired effect. They feel the world can then see the "barbaric acts" of Israel against "an unarmed people" (fire-bombs and hurled rocks don't count). Even more cleverly, they know exactly the best time period to initiate Arab violence.
