Show Summary Details


This chapter examines Palestinian suicide terrorism against Israel. It shows that the primary impetus behind the formation of the Palestinian suicide attack campaign was Israel's occupation, and particularly Israel's changing cultural, political, and military influence on the West Bank and Gaza from the mid-1980s onward. The chapter provides a brief history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from World War I to the 1993 Oslo Accords and evaluates public support for suicide terrorist groups in Palestine.
