The teenage Palestinian girls helping to carry rocks to the front-lines of stone-throwing protests in Ramallah have their nails brightly painted, are dressed in tight jeans and carry the latest smartphones in their fashionable handbags.The stone-throwing, stabbings and shootings – in which seven Israelis and 28 Palestinians, including 10 alleged attackers and eight children, have died – have prompted comparisons with previous Palestinian uprisings in the 1980s and early 2000s, even if the violence is not yet equivalent.In an attack Monday, Israeli police said two Palestinian boys, a 13-year-old and his 15-year-old cousin, stabbed two Israeli boys in a settlement to the north of Jerusalem.That unrest began shortly after Israel's then-opposition leader, Ariel Sharon, visited the Noble Sanctuary in 2000 and ended five years later, after a campaign of suicide bombings of cafes and buses had left 1,000 Israelis and 3,000 Palestinians dead.Even so, some Palestinians question where the current wave of violence will lead.
