When it comes to ( fighting ) terrorism, retaliations, liquidations etc. the chicken-and-egg question of who is to blame can hardly be answered. Again, the terrorists never search for reasons to kill and maim Jews and others. Still, after yesterday's terribly timed ( and failed ) assassination attempt it was obvious that before the end of the week at least one major terror attack would be carried out. Each of the different sides in this ridiculous conflict is afraid to be considered a softie by his enemies and his public, so all the time the different parties make sure the others understand that they are still able and willing to throw their weight ( together with some explosives, a rocket or two and many, many bullets ) around. If it is true that each people receives the leaders it deserves, I wonder what the Israelis and the Palestinians did to deserve the non-leaders with whom they are stuck today.
