"Eventually, the protests against Israel will not only decrease,.."

I wish that were true, Elena. I've been following this sort of thing too long, though, to think so. The loudest anti-Israel voices tend to be Jewish; and I dare say that long after all the Muslims have repented, there will be outspoken Jews condemning Zionism. They were not deterred by the pizzaria bombings in 2001, nor by 9/11, nor by the beheadings. Even after the Palestinian Arabs eviscerated two Jews in 2000 Nablus and threw their decapitated bodies out the window to cheering crowds. In 1985, the Pals killed an elderly Jew in a wheelchair, Leon Klinghoffer, right on camera; yet from then unto this day, there are Jews who go to Israel with the express purpose of trying to drive the Jewish people off their land. The current beheadings are rather tame by comparison.
