Was saddened to read this. From Israeli peace activist Jeff Halper.
In fact, the IDF's goal regarding terrorism has been limited to minimizing the scope and damage of attacks, not to eliminating them. (Jeff Halper, War Against the People, 2015, Chapter 7.)The violence that afflicts the Holy Land is a symptom of the political crisis. Only political solutions can end such violence. Those who call for peace are trying to end the violence.
