YNET: Two months, 22 victims: The human cost of terror
In Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the West Bank, and Be'er Sheva, Israelis as young as 18 and as old as 78 have lost their lives in violent terror attacks.

Hadar Buchris, a 21-year-old from Safed, became the 22nd terror victim in the last two months when she was murdered in an attack at Gush Etzion junction on Sunday afternoon.
|Some of those killed so far since Rosh HaShannah.|
Medical teams have so far treated 192 wounded people, while another 82 have been treated for shock. (cont.)
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Notice how YNET just had to stick in the part about Israelis mistaken for terrorists, not to mention an Arab "accidentally" getting killed, as if he was just as much of a victim as the Jews being murdered?
No surprises here.
Here is a video of one of today's multiple attacks. It took place in Jerusalem's main shuq, the Mahaneh Yehudah market.

Uri Silberman of The Israel Network provides the best assessment of our current situation, I have seen so far:
If the government doesn't take drastic measures soon, I have no doubt that in the near future, people in Israel will feel there is no choice but to take the law into their own hands and start revenge killing."
In my opinion, this state of "learned helplessness," is exactly what the Israeli Government wants, even more so, the [real] powers that be. It is much easier to maintain control over its masses this way, using fear of terrorism, and fear of reprisals from the government for "vigilantism."
No doubt, if we continue on this path, we will end up with more Jews murdered, but also more Jews in administrative detention, or otherwise incarcerated.
Something has got to give.
