The current problem in Israel is due to attacks by knife-wielding terrorists, supported and encouraged by the Palestinian leadership and Hamas.
There is no “cycle of violence” or “moral ambiguity.” This is terrorism and it is funded with money given to the Palestinians, diverted for terrorism, and funded by Iran, who unfortunately will receive $80 billion more dollars with the cessation of sanctions.
This terrorism has nothing to do with land or occupation.
Whenever Israel has withdrawn from land they have had to deal with more terrorism such as the withdrawal from Gaza.
