One-and-a-half million Arabs live in Israel. They are Israeli citizens. No Jews live in either Gaza or Palestinian-controlled territories on the West Bank. As if that were not apartheid enough, the recent pogrom in a Jerusalem synagogue transformed Palestinian irredentism in a radical way.
The murderers of four rabbis and one Druze in a Jerusalem synagogue on Nov. 18, 2014 were two Arabs who differed from previous terrorists. These two Arabs were part of the warp and woof of Jewish life in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jewish Jerusalem. One of the Arabs worked in the local fish store, near the synagogue, and one was the janitor in the synagogue where they perpetuated the bloodbath, and in another nearby seminary.
