Middle East Terrorism and Antecedents

Has anyone thought about the pattern of warfare waged by Hamas, Fatah and Hezbollah against Israel in comparison with the War of Attrition?
The objective is not the same, the current objective remains the destruction of Israel but the method is to wear out Israel.

    Richard,

    Insightful, and spot-on! Bin Laden actually referred to a “long war of attrition” on the recent anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. His remarks were directed toward the U.S., of course, but his objective is to, among other things, eliminate active U.S. support for Israel.

    That is interesting because it seems to me that is broadly speaking their objective as it was for the North Vietnamese.
