The number of security incidents in Israel and the West Bank tripled following US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, according to new statistics released by the Shin Bet security service. On December 6, Trump made his announcement regarding Jerusalem, sparking violent protests by Palestinians in the West Bank and along the Gaza border. Throughout the month of December, there were 249 terror attacks in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Israel, as compared to 84 in November and 71 in October, according to the Shin Bet's statistics, which were released this week.

Interesting, considering Jerusalem was always considered the capitol of Israel.

Guess the terrorists aren't that aware, or situations in the ME have become increasingly tumultuous with ISIS strategically disbanding to various locations.

Of course terror attacks increased. Didn't you see what they were wearing? Obviously they were asking for it

How cute. Danni thinks it's Trumps fault for the violence and not the people doing the violence.

I'm guessing Boaz blamed Obama for all the violence in Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Yemen over the past 8 years.

How pathetic, BOAZ doesn't understand that political events can contribute to Acts of Terrorism.

You are allegedly a military man who has seen GWAT action, but you somehow don't understand that terrorism is often a direct result of perceived provocation?

That really does say a lot about your ability to learn from experience.

I do not believe it is wise to predicate our actions upon what a terrorist might or will do. We should end all financial aid to the Palestinian authority as a response.

#7,
We would be much better served to end all financial aid to Israel.
