Who is Escalating Whom?

notice the use of "escalate" by Israel and the Pals. in this UPI story:

Violence grows in post Arafat era
GAZA, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- A Palestinian report released Saturday suggests the Israeli army escalated its military actions against Palestinians after Yasser Arafat's Nov. 11 death.

The PLO report said that between Nov. 11 and Friday the Israeli army has not stopped carrying out incursions, demolishing houses and committing assassination. The report also noted Israel did not stop the construction of the barrier, which Palestinians call a wall, in the West Bank in addition to confiscating Palestinian land and imposing curfews.

Palestinian militants during the same period escalated their mortar and missile attacks on Jewish settlements in Gaza and southern Israel, as well as firing at Israeli troops and Jewish settlers' vehicles.

Another example of balanced, ethical, reliable and non-discriminatory reporting.
