Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Sunday warned that the Palestinian Authority is planning to unleash a new wave of violence against Israel in conjunction with its bid for UN recognition of a Palestinian state at the UN in September.
The Palestinian leadership "is planning violence and bloodshed on a scale that has yet to have been seen here," Lieberman told reporters at the Knesset. "The more they talk about their wish to operate in the diplomatic arena, the more I see preparations for violence and bloodshed."
Lieberman said the basis for his assessment is recent efforts by the Palestinian Authority to organize massive marches on Israeli army checkpoints and on Jerusalem to coincide with the UN vote.

I don't want to take Israels side nor Gazas side. However, why would Palestinians attack Israel a month before an election for a Palestinian state?
