Worst terrorism during 1950-1966, nothing to do with 1967 'occupation'.

The worst terrorism against Israel was in the period from 1950-1966.

Remember the 'fedayeen attacks' that killed so many.

Before Israel was established in 1948 it was even worse. Lynchings were a daily event. Jews had to hire guards if they wanted to live outside of cities. Remember Josef Trumpeldor. And bigger lynchings, like the Aleppo Massacres and the 1905 Gaza massacres.

We could go on and on.

What kind of nonsense is it that terrorism is caused by political frustration' ? Silly.
