Jewish Terrorists

Haaretz today has a discussion of Shin Bet investigations of Jewish terrorists, such as a group planning to blow up a school and maternity clinic. These groups are easily on a level with Hamas and other terrorist groups. Admittedly there don't seem to be as many Jewish terrorists as Muslim ones; however, the Israeli government has been far more effective at protecting its citizens from the Intifada than the PA has at resisting the Israeli occupation. (I am not suggesting that IDF operations are the moral equivalent of terrorism, but rather that the IDF's success creates a different dynamic in Israeli society than you find in Palestinian society. When Palestinians believed Arab armies could defeat Israel, there was little or no terrorism.)
