The difference between Israel and a terrorist state

If anything highlights the glaring differences between Israel and all the terrorist states and organizations that surround them, it's this.

Haaretz reports that the Israeli Supreme Court of Justice has upheld the conviction of Shachar Dvir-Zeliger for terrorism.
Dvir-Zeliger, of the Adei-Ad outpost near the West Bank city of Ramallah, was convicted two years ago of stealing rifles and explosives from the Israel Defense Forces, of conspiring to carry out terror attacks against Arabs and of illegal possession of arms.

According to the sentence, Zeliger took eight bricks of explosives from Yitzhak Pas for an attempted bombing of a Muslim girls' school in the A-Tor neighborhood in East Jerusalem.
In the Palestinian territories, the Palestinian "authorities" wouldn't have prevented such an attack against an Israeli school, they'd have perpetrated it.
