Last year, on a TV show in South Africa, Haaretz writer Amira Hass refused to condemn the wave of Palestinian terror attacks occurring in Israel.

She gave two reasons for her position, neither of which makes any logical sense.

The first is that Israel doesn’t condemn its soldiers for killing civilians. The flaws in that analogy are obvious. As many government officials have noted, Israelis don’t celebrate dead Arabs. The IDF is not targeting civilians in the way that Palestinians target Jewish civilians. And in the specific example that Hass gives (the deaths of some in the Samouni family in 2009), the family happened to include members of Islamic Jihad.

Hass’ other justification for Palestinian terror is that the source of all violence is the “occupation.” Even when IDF soldiers aren’t hurting anyone, she says, they are the source of violence. When she was challenged by the Israeli ambassador that this does not justify Palestinian terror, she demurred, but didn’t explain the relevance of the “occupation” to the acts of Palestinian terror.
