4. It’s not happenstance that the two Israeli policemen killed were Druze. Israel has deliberately assigned large numbers of them to areas where the friction with the oppressed Palestinian is direct and unmediated: In the Civil Administration in the West Bank, in the alleyways of Jerusalem’s Old City, in the Hebron police. Let them attack each other, hate each other as much as possible, swell with bitterness against each other, savage each other. Let their common Palestinian identity be shattered and pulverized.

[...] 6. Israel relates to any Palestinian who carries out a stabbing or shooting or killing as representative of the entire Palestinian people, part of a collective, and therefore it immediately takes collective revenge.
