(JNi.media) Nehemia Gershuni, a citizen reporter active on the Rotter.net scoops message board, on Monday issued his “Stabbing Intifada of 2015 Statistics” report, which he has been collecting meticulously since October 18, 2015.
One of the most telling data in the report are the days of the week with the highest incidents of Arab violence, between September 18 and October 18, 2015. It appears the safest day for a Jew this month was Tuesday:
Another fascinating–and disturbing–fact is the sharp rise in the number of terrorist acts on October 1, immediately following the September 30 speech of Mahmoud Abbas at the UN. So much so, that most accounts see the start of the 2015 Intifada on October 1 and not at any earlier singular incident.
