  What Stands Behind the New Palestinian War Against Israel? | Opinion Palestinians are now certain they will be rewarded, not punished, for their aggression. So long as this remains the Biden administration's position, we can expect the latest Palestinian war against Israel to continue. Indeed, so long as this remains the administration's policy, the danger that the Palestinian war will escalate into a regional onslaught against Israel by Iran's proxies across Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen will only increase. Caroline B. Glick is a senior columnist at Israel Hayom and the author of The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East, (Crown Forum, 2014).

A number of videos have emerged showing an Israeli mob attacking Palestinian businesses and chanting "death to Arabs" amid the ongoing violence between Israel and Gaza.

In one incident, a large crowd of what is believed to be far-right Israelis in Tel Aviv dragged a man from his car believing he was an Arab and lynched him, in an incident which was captured on live TV.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is exposing a deep schism in the Democratic Party

  The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is exposing a deep schism in the Democratic Party Democrats have moved left on Israel. Biden hasn’t.But President Joe Biden doesn’t seem to have gotten the memo. And that gap between him and the more progressive members of his party is becoming a visible rift as the Biden administration struggles to address the escalating conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.

Emergency services reportedly did not arrive at the scene of the attack in Bat Yam for around 15 minutes, during which the victim lay motionless in the middle of the street.

"The victim of the lynching is seriously injured but stable," Tel Aviv's Ichilov hospital said in a statement.

Another clip taken before the attack shows what is believed to be the same driver attempting to get away from the mob as the crowd hits the vehicle with sticks and rocks.

The driver appears to knock down some people attacking the vehicle as it speeds away before being chased down by the large crowd.

Elsewhere in Bat Yam, a crowd of Israelis nationalists, many of whom were dressed in black, attacked an ice cream shop while chanting, "Death to Arabs!" in another incident captured on live TV.

Israel steps up attacks in Gaza as conflict grows

  Israel steps up attacks in Gaza as conflict grows More than 100 people have been killed in Gaza and seven have died in Israel since Monday.Israel's army said air and ground forces were involved in attacks on Friday but had not entered Gaza.

There are reports on social media that the business is Palestinian-owned.

Another video shared online shows a family desperately attempting to fend off police officers trying to enter their home. A child can be heard crying in the background as at two least men try to close the front door while being hit with batons.

Israel’s unraveling

  Israel’s unraveling The wave of riots sweeping Israeli cities reflects the damage done by a decade of divisive right-wing government.On Wednesday night, Bat Yam erupted in violence. A mob of Jewish extremists surrounded a man they presumed was an Arab and pummeled him mercilessly. Kan, Israel’s public broadcaster, aired live footage of the unnamed man being beaten with a flagpole flying the Israeli flag.

The clip was shared on Twitter by Michigan Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) while criticizing President Joe Biden's comments on the violence. He has stated that Israel has the right to defend itself from "thousands of rockets flying into your territory," which has been fired in retaliation from Hamas, the Islamist militant group that has ruled Gaza since 2007.

Tweeting to Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Tlaib wrote: "If you're having trouble finding the courage to speak up against Israel's actions and stop supporting this inhumane violence, try imagining that this family isn't Palestinian. Maybe then they'll deserve human rights?"

Another clip shows the officers continue to confront and beat the men once they are inside the home.

At least 67 people, including 16 children, have been killed in Gaza since the violence escalated on Monday. Officials said seven people have been killed in Israel.

The attacks occurred after Israeli armed forces stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound this week, injuring hundreds of Palestinians as they worshipped at the site in Jerusalem's walled Old City.

Timeline: How US presidents have defended Israel over decades

  Timeline: How US presidents have defended Israel over decades Joe Biden is not only US president to back Israel amid criticism of military operations and abuses against Palestinians.On the same day that Israeli air raids killed 10 members of a single family and levelled an 11-storey building housing the media offices of Al Jazeera and The Associated Press, as well as residential apartments, Biden reasserted his unequivocal support for Israel.

There has also been rising tensions in recent weeks over the planned eviction of Palestinians families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of east Jerusalem.

In a statement on Wednesday night, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he planned on sending in military enforcement to help deal with the violence.

"Nothing can justify an Arab mob assaulting Jews, and nothing can justify a Jewish mob assaulting Arabs," Netanyahu said.
