Chronology of Palestinian Homicide Bombings

There are a few Palestinian terrorist groups including:
- The Hamas ("Islamic Resistance" in Arabic)
- The Islamic Jihad ("Holy war" in Arabic)
- The PFLP (the "Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine").
- The Al-Aksa Martyrs brigade (part of the "Fatah", directly reports to Arafat - see the Palestine page).

All of the above mass murderers wish for the destruction of Israel, and for an Islamic Palestinian state to replace it. Arafat's terrorist groups are part of the "Fatah", an umbrella group of terrorists. These Palestinians are responsible for hundreds of homicide/suicide bombings since Arafat and the Palestinian Authority decided that they'd take another shot at war and trying to destroy Israel.
