Post 1967 Six Days War, after we (Israel) very quickly and relatively easily defeated Jordan, Syria and Egypt, the local Arabs feared and respected us. There were occasional attacks, but on the whole, it was clear to all that Israel was ruling and the Arabs had to learn to accept it.
Basically we all agreed that the turning point for Israel, when things began getting bad, was Menachem Begin’s Camp David Agreement with Egypt, giving Egypt the Sinai and destroying all of the Jewish communities that had been established there. That’s when the Arabs realized that we were a bunch of weak idiots, and they voted in more extremist leaders, and then Israel made more bad policy moves, and since then things have been snowballing in the wrong direction fast and furiously.
Now we have young teenage Arab terrorists who fear neither us nor their parents, and it’s going to get harder and harder to stop them.
Watch: Terror teen shot dead while charging with knife13-year-old female Arab shot by guard as she ran at entrance to Samaria town with drawn knife in hand; Arab MK cries ‘execution.’
Honestly, I do think that on the spot execution is best. I don’t want to have us housing more terrorists, and they should not be tried as criminals. If they come to kill, like this one did, then they should be prepared to die. The State of Israel must work hard to undo the decades of damage done since Camp David. All of the peace sic agreements and gestures to the Arabs have only made them trust us less and support the terrorists more.
