Chapter Summary

This chapter furnishes the narrative of grievances, called facts in the realm of law, facts that capture aggrieved populations' sufferings and existential abuses. The narrative of grievances presented in this chapter shuns distorted viewpoints. It simply tells the story of aggrieved populations. It captures the lens through which aggrieved populations see their misery, injustice, and oppression, and thereby construct their narratives. It explores genetic connections between narrative and violence. Primary grievances emerge from the originative ordeal whereas secondary grievances accumulate during the punitive ordeal. Aggrieved populations use complex strategies to objectify their primary and secondary grievances. Palestinian terrorism is reactive and proactive. It is reactive in affirming the paradigm that violence begets violence. It is proactive in reaffirming the right to armed struggle against an occupier who is determined to usurp more land and resources.

Keywords: aggrieved populations; narrative of grievances; Palestinian terrorism; paradigm; primary grievances; proactive; reactive; secondary grievances
