Palestinian terrorism

The neutrality of this page is disputed.

The expression Palestinian terrorism is commonly used to indicate terrorist acts committed by some Palestinians, in particular against Israelis, and occasionaly against nationals of other countries.

Whereas the moral justification of the Palestinian attacks is often argued about, it does doubtlessly constitute terrorism, as it involves the death of civilian non-combatants in order to create a public uproar aiming at political ends. See Terrorism against Israel for details about the history of attacks against Israel. Contrast this with: Kahanist terrorism and Israeli state terrorism.
