Why Does the World Insist Terrorism Against Israel is Different

Beyond the Cusp

Often during political discussions of the terrorist threats faced by much of the world but usually focusing on the terror threats faced by Europe, the United States, other Western nations and in the Middle Eastern Arab nations there is a distinction made setting these threats as being completely separate from those faced by Israel.

The mother of Palestinian Ateya Abu Moussa, who has been held prisoner by Israel for 20 years, hugs her grandson upon hearing the news that her son may soon be released.
