Israel Policy Forum strongly condemns the car ramming outside of Mevo Dotan that killed IDF soldiers Ziv Daos and Netanel Kahalani and the stabbing in Jerusalem’s Old City that killed Adiel Kolman, a 32-year-old father of four. This type of terrorism only reinforces the fundamental precept that Palestinian nationalism and independence cannot be built on the blood of Israelis.

This attack must be condemned by the Palestinian leadership. Without respect for the fundamental right of Israelis to live free from terror and the renunciation of violence, Palestinians will never see their own nationalist aspirations fulfilled.
