After no less than eight terror attacks in just four days, two questions dominate. Is this a new, or renewed, wave of "lone wolf" assaults that began one year ago? And why now?
After a mortar fired from Gaza hit the Israeli community of Sderot three days ago, Israel carried out two days of carefully targeted but intense bombing attacks. No one was killed. Still, why such a strong response?
Yesterday morning in downtown Jerusalem, a bustling crowd waited to board the light rail. One of them had a bag with a three-pipe bomb connected to a cell phone.
There is “a Gaza City under the ground, and we have nothing up here.”
Dear Rena and Amichai Ariel,
I’m writing to you with deep sorrow in my heart. I try to imagine your loss from the brutal murder of your lovely daughter, and I cannot. As a Palestinian Christian who grew up in Gaza, I can tell you that my heart is broken and I mourn with you the loss of lovely Hallel.
