Reason For Gaza Border Breach Now Realized. A [edit: reports now say two terrorists were involved] Palestinian terrorist affiliated with Mahmoud Abbas’ Fattah, the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, murdered an Israeli woman and wounded others after exploding in the southern town of Dimona.
The al-AP uses the dubious headline of “1 Killed by Israel Suicide Bomber” Of all the badly headlined articles I’ve seen, this ranks as one of the worst. How low can the AP go?
The Tundra Tabloids reported last Friday that the Egyptians were busy arresting Palestinian terrorist squads that had joined the mobs of Arabs pouring over the border with Egypt, after Hamas had finnished its months long demolition work, with the blowing up of the border fence in key positions.
The Tundra Tabloids stated then that “The breaching of the Gaza border was one of the biggest scams Hamas has ever managed to pull off, and from the looks of it, they have managed to pump into Egypt enough terrorist operatives to keep both the Egyptian and the Israeli border guards busy for months.”
The Finnish media is busy reminding everyone that it has been over a year since the last “
suicide bombing” homicide/suicide killing, but what they fail to add, is that Palestinian attempts at murdering Israeli civilians by homicide/suicide killing has proceeded non stop.
This is one of the big reasons for the Hamas project of launching Qassams, it gave them the pretext for demolishing the fence (for fake humanitarian reasons) in order to get weapons in and terrorist groups out. The media helps the terrorists by dutifully lapping up Palestinian propaganda while criticizing Israeli protective measures. One principle co-operative is Finland’s
YLE journalist Hamas propagandist, Sanna Negus, who has been spinning Hamas’ talking points for the last two weeks. More here. *L* KGS
The Tundra Tabloids Israeli MFA source sends the following: Hereby some bad news from Israel:
1. This morning, two Palestinian suicide terrorists carried out an attack against Israeli civilians shopping at a mall in the Southern Israeli town of Dimona. One Israeli was killed, 11 were wounded – one critically, and two moderately.
2. The two terrorists were killed in the attack – the first detonated himself in the initial explosion, and the second was killed by an alert police officer as he was about to detonate his suicide bomb against the rescuers who were rushing to help the wounded.
3. The bombers deliberately chose to detonate themselves in a semi-enclosed crowed shopping area in order to kill and maim as many civilians as possible. The foreign media has reported that a Hamas statement from Gaza praised the attack, calling it an “heroic act”.
4. In response to the attack, the Israel Foreign Ministry spokesman stated:
In their terror attack today, the Palestinian terrorist organizations have shown once again, who they are and what they stand for.
Just like the Kassam rocket fire on Sderot and the sniper fire on Israeli fields bordering Gaza, today’s attack deliberately targeted innocent civilians.
Worse yet, the terrorists’ plan was to detonate a second suicide bomb against the rescue workers and ambulances rushing to assist the victims at the scene of the initial bombing. Imagine the carnage that would have been created if not for the heroic act of an off-duty policeman who identified and neutralized the second terrorist before he detonated himself.
Plain and simple: The terrorists’ goal is to kill as many Israeli civilians as they can, wherever and whenever they can – in their homes, schools and shopping centers.
Israel will continue to fight this murderous terrorism, and will act in keeping with its right, and its duty, to protect the lives of its citizens.
UPDATE: 04.02.08 / 17:07 “Abu Fouad, a spokesman for the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, said the operation had been planned for a month, but was made possible after militants violently opened Gaza’s border with Egypt on Jan. 23.”
UPDATE: 05.02.08 / 10:26 “Defense officials told The Jerusalem Post, however, there was a growing opinion the terrorist duo had indeed come from the West Bank and had infiltrated the Negev via the 26-km. gap in the southern section of the West Bank security barrier.”
NOTE: In spite of whether this turns out to be true, Israeli intelligence has it that terrorists have indeed inflitrated into Egypt, with some groups already being arrested by Egyptian border police.
