I read " ... weekly bombings have been occuring in jerusalem for way longer than the last couple years. The news just decides to report on that stuff now because of the 'campaign to market terrorism news'." and was curious about the scale of recent violence in Israel; so I did some quick research. Some of what I found (mostly for my own reference):

the entry for terrorism against israel in the wikipedia links to these stats from the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs relating to to victims of fatal terrorist attacks :
  • Declaration of Principles // September 1993 - September 2000 // 256
  • 2nd Intifada // Sept 2000 - present // 593+

    The Palestinian Liberation Organizationhomepage doesn't have similar statistics.

    An article I read last year, Gaza Diary: Scenes from the Palestinian Uprsising in Harper's Magazine.
