Israelʼs relationship with the Palestinian Authority (PA ) has reached a new
low, the worst it has been since the second intifada and the 2002 siege on
then-PA president Yasser Arafat at his headquarters in the Mukata'ah in
Ramallah. In those days of bloodshed and violence, Palestinians perpetrated
devastating suicide bombings and the IDF conducted retaliatory raids into the
Palestinian cities.But no violence is involved in the current struggle
between Israel and PA President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salaam Fayyad.
True, there are occasional incidents of rock-throwing and some Israeli
casualties, and there are ongoing skirmishes between Palestinians and settlers,
along with “price tag” attacks as well as some murderous Palestinian terror
attacks on Jewish settler families – but for the most part, the struggle is
political, not violent.
