“Israel suffered the equivalent of twenty-three September 11, 2001 World Trade Center Arab Islamic terrorist attacks in the 4.8 year period from September 27, 2000 to July 23, 2005, in terms of Arab Islamic terrorism deaths in Israel scaled up from Israel’s Jewish population to the U.S. population.” – Michael D.

This analysis of Arab Islamic terrorism in Israel has been updated using more complete and current data from the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), which indicates that 1,073 people have been murdered by Arab Islamic terrorism since September 2000.
Thus, Israel suffered the equivalent of twenty-three September 11, 2001 World Trade Center Arab Islamic terrorist attacks in the 4.8 year period from September 27, 2000 to July 23, 2005, in terms of Arab Islamic terrorism deaths in Israel scaled up from Israel’s Jewish population to the U.S. population.
The following data includes woundings but covers a shorter period. Between September 29, 2000 and April 1, 2005, Magen David Adom treated a total of 7,253 casualties as follows:
953 killed, 596 severely injured, 881 moderately and 4,823 lightly injured, among them 11 MDA staff members. (Israel Defense Forces casualties treated by IDF medical personnel are not included in these figures.)
Woundings include arms and legs blow off, blindings, and shrapnel wounds due to nails packed with the bombs to maximize the deaths and woundings.
Using these more recent figures, extrapolating the woundings based on the two figures for murders by multiplying by (1,073 / 953), and multiplying by 60 to scale by the ratio of U.S. population to Israel’s Jewish population, results in the following Arab Islamic terrorist murders and woundings in the U.S.:
