Excusing Terror

Today in the center of Tel Aviv, a 20 year old Israeli soldier was stabbed repeatedly in the stomach by a Palestinian terrorist from Nablus (Shechem) who had illegally infiltrated.

The terrorist first tried to steal the soldiers weapon, but after a brief struggle, fled the scene and was arrested by the police a few blocks away.

The soldier was rushed to the hospital with massive blood loss and is currently listed in critical condition.

Getting back to the title of this post, at this point in the proceedings, one typically hears Arab Members of Knesset and EU / UN apologists explaining why the poor Palestinians are driven to such lengths to get out from under the jackboot of Israeli occupation.

And in fact, someone did rush to make such a connection:

"These are hard days for the State of Israel. Terror must be fought against but it must be understood that everything is connected – Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Gaza, Judea and Samaria." [source]

But instead of some fifth column Arab MK or a European anti-semite, Israel's own Justice Minister - Tzipi Livni - is the source of that little gem of wisdom.

Mind you, this was her first statement following the attack!

All I can say is, Really?!  There's something about this unprovoked act of terror that must be 'understood'?!!!   You can look the Israeli public in the face and suggest there's a 'but' here?!!!!

There is only one 'butt' here, and anyone who asks the citizens of the State of Israel to 'understand' terror attacks is hereby invited to kiss mine.

Well of course you have to understand terror. You have to understand that it's caused by the fanatical hatred Arabs have for Jews and won't stop until it's put down hard. I don't think that's what Livni meant though.
