The First Intifada started in 1987 and lasted nearly six years. According to the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism, during the Second Intifada, which began in 2000, 887 of the 1,137 Israelis murdered in attacks from September 2000 — 2005 were civilians.
Just between May 2001 and May 2002 there were the following massacres: five Israelis murdered by a suicide bomber at the HaSharon Mall in May 2001; 21 Israelis murdered by a suicide bomber at the Dolphinarium Discotheque in June 2001; 15 Israelis murdered by a suicide bomber at Sbarro’s Pizza in August 2001, including six children and a 31-year-old woman who was the only child of her parents and was five months pregnant; 11 Israelis murdered in a bus bombing on Ben Yehuda Street in Jerusalem on December 1, 2001; 15 more Israelis murdered the very next day in a Haifa suicide bombing; 11 more Israelis murdered in a bus attack 10 days later in Immanuel; six Israelis murdered in an attack at a bas-mitzvah in January 2002; 11 more Jews killed in an attack on a yeshiva in March 2002, including a five-month-old child; 11 Jews murdered in a bombing at Café Moment in March 2002; 30 Israelis killed as they celebrated Passover in Netanya on March 27, 2002; 16 Israelis murdered in a suicide bombing four days later at the Matzah restaurant; and 16 Israelis murdered in Rishon LeZion in May 2002.
At MIT, another highly prestigious university, students at a campus protest chanted “One Solution, Intifada, Revolution” at a rally.
One Israeli student pursuing her PhD at MIT told Fox News: “Intifada is not a call for resistance. Intifada is the name of acts of bombing and killing civilians in Israel … It’s the name of taking civilian lives in terrorist attacks in Israel. That is what intifada means. That is how it’s defined. … My feelings are shifting a lot more towards anger because their [Hamas victims’] blood hasn’t even dried yet, and our campus is allowing, promoting, funding organizations that are calling for murder of Jews actively on campus, calling for demolition of Israel. And I wish I would have known that, I’m not sure if I would have come here.”
