The Israelis and the Palestinians have had conflict with each other ever since the biblical times but recently it seems as if this rivalry has escalated to an extremely daunting point. On Thursday, October 22, 2015 a Jewish man was arbitrarily stabbed in the neck with a knife by a young Palestinian man. This violent act has made the Israelis consider what the actual cause of these terroristic acts is. This has provoked a lot of controversy between the Israelis as some consider figuring out what the Palestinians want and others consider different forms of action. In response to the controversy between the Israelis, Yoav Schwartz, of CNN, claims that “there is no justification for terror” and that compliance with demands of the terrorists would just “encourage future acts of violence.” Schwartz even compares it to the bombing of the Boston Marathon, a sad event that is now permanently etched into the history of terrorism in the United States. Schwartz then asks the question if Israel could stop living under a constant threat of attack. We of the OHS Newspaper would like to know what you all think. Is all of this conflict about land? What can Israel do to further prevent these violent acts?
