Between 1978 and the Oslo Agreements in 1993, i.e. over a period of 25 years, 254 persons, Israelis and foreigners were murdered by Palestinian terrorists. Between the signing of the first Oslo Agreement in September 1993 and August 2000, i.e. in only seven years, the same number of persons were killed during the so-called Intifada. The number of victims thus multiplied by 3.6 during those seven years, and then by 30 times from 2000 to 2003.
