    The Spin

    Pro-Israel narrative

    This is but the latest in a recent outbreak of violence promoted by Palestinians against Israel. Israeli security forces must arrest the perpetrators and hold them fully accountable for terrorizing the nation and attempting to damage the fabric of Israeli life.

    Pro-Palestine narrative

    While tragic, such operations come as a reaction to Israeli acts of aggression against Palestinians. Attacks carried out by Israeli settlers, right-wing militants and occupation soldiers are driving the security situation by radicalizing Palestinians to seek revenge.
