    You're right, Palestinians attacking and stabbing unexpecting Israeli civilians to death is such an unusual thing in this conflict! ...except from those who stabbed Yossi Ben-Gal on January 14th 1988, Eli Cohen on June 20th 1988, Rachel Weiss on August 3rd 1988, or Liad Rahman Mahmud Zakuti who stabbed Moshe Shelinger on March 21st 1989, or Nidal Rizek Zalum who stabbed Vardi Kalman and Nissim Levy on May 3rd 1989, or those who stabbed Friedrich Rosenfeld on June 17th 1989, or American law professor Menachem Stern on June 22nd 1989, or Ibahim Salah who stabbed Eli Amsalem on July 28th, or Ahmed Ibn Hasin Shukri who stabbed Michael Ashtamker on September 7th 1989, or Najah Mukbal and Bassam Abu Sammiye who stabbed Yaakov Shalom on May 21st 1990, or those who stabbed Ronen Karamani and Lior Tubul on August 4th 1990, or Said Salah Abu Sirhan who stabbed Eli Alteraz, Shalom Chelouche and Iris Azulay on October 21st 1990, or those who stabbed Zvia Gvirtz on November 16th, or Baruch Yaakov Heisler on December 2nd, or Marwan al Zayegh and Ashraf Ba'louji who stabbed Iris Asraf, Yehoshue Hakmaz and Moshe Ivan on December 14th 1990, or those who stabbed Rudi Levy on December 17th 1990, or Yosef Machlin on December 29th 1990, or Yehuda Vardi on December 31st 1990. The list goes on of course, this was just from the outbreak of your first "Intifada" till the end of 1990. About half of the civilian victims were in their 60s or older - literally defenseless against their "brave" attackers. And these are only the ones who were killed - a list including all attempted murders would exceed all commentary limits. Also, the fictional character of John Rambo would never target civilians, as every Palestinian militant faction have done, and keep on doing.
