Newsweek Finds Israel at Fault for Tractor Terrorism

Newsweek magazine has found Israel at fault for creating conditions it says were part of the reasons terrorists attacked in Jerusalem this year. Without excusing the attacks themselves, the weekly magazine noted that the separation barrier has contributed to Arab frustration that has expressed itself with three murderous attacks in the capital since March.

The article also accused Israel of undermining a source of social security in the Arab areas of eastern Jerusalem by cracking down on Hamas leaders who "provide a social safety net and a sense of community."
