    Based on his political views and goals. With the recent violence between settlers and Palestinians, culminating in the despicable murders yesterday tension is already high. So, what does Bibi do? No you're wrong! He doesn't do anything to calm the tension, instead he decides to make it even worse. The settlement expansion is sure to cause even more friction. This makes you wonder: who wants a third intifada? I think we all know, the expansionists do. Palestinian violence gives Israel an excuse for using heavy-handed violence against Palestinians and for continued settlement construction. It is fringe groups on both sides that want and cause the bloody altercations between Jews and Palestinians. One on side we have a terrorists like Hamas that get more supporters for their cause and more volunteers. And on the other we have the settlers who want the IDF to drive out the Palestinians and for the settlements to expand. It's tragic that normal people of both the peoples are stuck in between these groups. Every day people bleed because of the extremists on both sides.
