Since the end of the second intifada nearly twenty years ago, during which Israel endured attacks constantly, terrorism there has been comparatively rare. There have been knifings, and many rockets fired from Gaza and from Lebanon, but shootings and car-rammings have been few and far between. At least until now—over the last month, thirteen Israelis have been murdered in terror attacks.

To unpack what’s happened and to provide context for this new terror wave, the Israeli analyst and frequent Mosaic writer Shany Mor joins this week’s podcast. In conversation with Mosaic Editor Jonathan Silver, he details each attack, thinks about the motivations of the terrorists, and explains how terrorism of this kind influences the relationship that Israel’s Jewish majority has with its Arab minority.

Musical selections in this podcast are drawn from the Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, op. 31a, composed by Paul Ben-Haim and performed by the ARC Ensemble.
