While it was never truly expected that the 'Palestinian' situation would ever 'calm down,' expecting this latest round of violence in the name of Islam was likely a 'no-brainer,' given that violence would be the only way debate in the PA/Fatah/Hamas is able to articulate their common hatred for Israel and irrespective of the PA' s governance being compromised by Abba's intractability and internal conflicts, attacking Israel is their best way to deflect their failures and throw blame on Israel.
What this latest round of hostilities is hiding further is a potential changes of tactical approaches and attempting to redirect Israeli responses while developing a greater favorable international response to the 'Palestinian' plight; all the while Israel is under political assault from waning American 46th Administrative Chief Executive's less than creditable offerings of support. Unless there is a better understanding here, America is being drawn into this for ulterior motives. When (that's right, when) Israel is perceived in getting the upper hand, watch as the darkened power of empires begin to move on Israel as well.
It's coming.......
