    First, my condolences to the families of those killed in this attack. I don't know which group is behind this, but targeting civilians is never an acceptable means of warfare or resistance. It must've taken a serious lack of situational awareness on the part of the perpetrators of this attack to carry it out. The protests in Israel right now are close to encompassing a more broad message of social justice, one which includes Palestinians, both those with and those without Israeli citizenship. I can't think of a worse time to carry out an attack like this, one which Netanyahu and company will doubtless turn to their advantage in their goal of shutting down the social justice movement in Israel and making sure that it does not address the occupation, the refugees or the rights of Arabs in Israel. In addition to being deplorable for its deliberate targeting of civilians, then, this attack also proves to be completely contrary to the well-being of both Arabs and Jews in the region. Thus it is an utter mistake in the strategic sense in addition to being a reprehensible strike against those who can't defend themselves.
