Actually, John, I'm Ticked Off

US Secretary of State John Kerry spoke:

Last year, not one Israeli was killed by a Palestinian from the West Bank. This year, unfortunately, there’s been an uptick in some violence. 

That was from his remarks on February 1, 2014 at the Bayerischer Hof Hotel located in ... Munich, Germany.



TIP provides these stats on the "uptick"

Here are the 5 deaths by WB terrorists and the posts TIP did on them:

November 11 - Eden Atias
Stabbed in the neck on the bus. 18 year old soldier.

October 10 - Seraya Ofer
Bludgeoned to death outside his home. There were questions swirling over whether it was nationalistic or criminal and I'm not sure if they were ever resolved. The incident got wrapped into the girl who was shot point-blank on her family's porch.

September 21 - Tomer Hazan
September 22 - Gavriel Kobi
The uptick begins. Hazan was lured into a field and killed because the terrorist was hoping to get his brother out of jail. Kobi was shot in Hebron guarding the Cave of the Patriarchs.

April 30 - Evyatar Borovsky
Stabbed to death. First terror fatality in West Bank since 2011.

And this additional one:

Dec 24, 2013 - Salah Shukri Abu Latyef, 22, of Rahat was shot and killed by sniper fire in a shooting attack near the Israel-Gaza border fence.

Are you also ticked off?

And if you search this blog for "Low-Intensity Security Report", you'll read about the hundreds of other non-fatal incidents.

And Kerry is upset?
