If the First Intifada saw a significant change in opinion — by both Palestinians and the international community — the Second Intifada in September was when the conflict itself began to change significantly.
From late to , the death toll was 1, But from the Second Intifada to end of , the figure was 4, Palestinians and 1, Israelis.

But so too do Israelis, Black believes. Even in spite of their overwhelming advantages. Because violence, or at least the threat of it, says Black, is never far from their minds.
