The two incidents once again prove that peace is impossible unless Palestinians stop inciting their people against Israel and Jews.
As the result of more than two decades of ongoing incitement, some Palestinians and Arabs can no longer distinguish between those who support them and those who stand against them.

The emergence of ultra-violent groups in the Middle East has allowed non-violent extremist groups in the West to claim an undeserved moral credibility. ISIS is the ideal fig-leaf. Even al-Qaeda, by comparison, now looks “moderate.”
