This is another hybrid, somewhere between a news story and analysis. It reports on some of the recent terror attacks against Israeli civilians - as usual, with a careful avoidance of any reference to the word terror - and apparently tries to analyze its connection to and effect on negotiations. It is another example where the bias of the writer is apparently anti-Israel but the content of the article makes it pro-Israel anyway.
Opinion: The writer asserts the attacks represent a challenge to the Palestinian Authority security forces.
Opinion: "An uptick in violence is the last thing the Palestinian Authority wanted to see."
Opinion: "the pressure is on the Palestinian Authority to show it can contain the violence quickly."
Omission: The article refers to Palestinian Authority forces making hundreds of arrests, but omits mentioning their history of quickly releasing those it arrests.
Lack of Balance: The article quotes three different representatives of the Palestinian Authority but does not quote anyone giving an Israeli perspective.
