Make no mistake about it the Arabs of Israel have a well thought out strategy to wage Jihad on Jerusalem. After getting a significant thrashing this past summer in Operation Protective Edge, Hamas went back to its terroristic gorilla war tactics to try (they will never succeed) to snatch victory from defeat.

This is a orchestrated, strategized, well planned and well funded operation, Hamas has utilized since its inception. They failed in Gaza so they decided to go after softer and more susceptible civilian targets in Jerusalem. Israel's capture of 30 Hamas operatives on November 30th planning Jerusalem Attacks is defining testimony to this Terror Scheme.

According to Arieh King who is a member of the Jerusalem City Council, one of the original 10 residents of Ma'ale Zeitim (Ras-Al-Amud), and founder of the Israel Land Fund, there were 590 attacks in Jerusalem in November 2014 alone. Thank G-d, the great majority did not result in death. The Media only highlighted those attacks that did, including the Har Nof Massacre of the Four Great Rabbis, and the two murderous Vehicular Rammings into crowds prior( October 22nd and November 5th). In all 11 Israeli's were killed. The death toll could have been much higher. Thank G-d, it wasn't. The attacks in Jerusalem have occurred on an increasing basis since the brutal murder of 8 Mercaz Harav Yeshiva Students on March 6, 2008.

The use of vehicles as terrorist's favorite weapon goes back many years but the Tractor Attack on Jaffa street on July 2,2008 where 3 Israelis were killed and 42 injured comes to mind. You might think the Arabs of Israel have gotten a little tired of constantly waging Jihad. The statistics show just the opposite. The Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PCPSR) interviewed 1270 Arabs (3% margin of error) and found that 80% support the Jerusalem Jihad. 80% also support a new Intifada. 77% support the launching of Rockets against Israel.

If elections were held today the leader of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh would defeat Mahmoud Abbas 53% to 42%. The world has given the Arabs a free pass on Terror against Israel. It is time to reverse the course and the process once and for all. There should be a zero tolerance strategy for the fight on Terror. Jerusalem would be a good starting point.
