Palestinian expert on Israeli affairs, Shaker Shabat: “What puts Israel in an embarrassing situation now, and what prevents it from dealing with the intifada, is that it is individuals of a somewhat peaceful character [who carry it out]. A knife is not considered a firearm and [stabbing] is not classified as an act of terror. Israel is in a crisis because the one who confronts the Israeli army and the settlers is the Palestinian civilian, with a knife, or even with his exposed body, or with a screwdriver or scissors.”

Presenting the Palestinian attacks as having targeted only Israeli so-called “settlers” and soldiers is incorrect. Stabbing attacks have been carried out all over Israel against civilians, including children, women, and the elderly.
