Never quiet for long, a storm is brewing in the Palestinian arena.

Early Monday, a 16-year-old West Bank Palestinian from Nablus had a fight with his father, stole the family car and drove it to a checkpoint near Tul Karm to run over Israelis.The teen drove into the checkpoint at about 100 kilometers (60 miles) an hour, injuring a guard, who is in moderate condition, before being shot to death by other guards. This is the fifth attack of its kind in the past three weeks. Lone-wolf terrorists have set out to commit shooting attacks, stabbings and car-rammings in East Jerusalem, the West Bank and in one case, in Jaffa.
