Jonathan S, my reading of history tells me the first attacks using dynamite and other type bombs was started by Jews around the time of the King David Hotel. The terrorism that came about later by the Palestinians was mostly knifings in public places and on buses and the first suicide bombing occurred in 1994 right after and in response to what Goldstein did. After that, 98% of the suicide bombings happened in response to an Israeli direct aggression intended to rile up the Palestinians to end one peace situation or another. Today Israel is playing this card about some plot or other to scuttle the Annapolis meeting because it is allergic to peace. If nothing else succeeds, Israel will push hard enough to provoke a bombing.
