***Thus far today there have been more than 20 Palestinian terror attacks ranging from detonating car bombs to throwing “rocks” to attempting stabbing attacks.
It was just a week ago that your humble servant posed the horrific question: “how long will it be before a Palestinian suicide bomber strikes?'”
That was answered this morning when a traffic policeman noticed a suspicious vehicle being driven by a Palestinian woman on Road 437 between Ma’ale Adumim and the Al-Zaim checkpoint.
When he ordered the car to pull over, the woman yelled “Allahu Akbar” and detonated gas cannisters in her car wired to blow up. In the ensuing fireball, the would-be suicide bomber (a 31-year-old from Jericho) unfortunately survived–with burns over 90% of her body. The policeman also suffered burns to his face and torso.
Who knows where the Palestinian terrorist was headed when she was spotted by the policeman? And how many Israelis she could have killed?
It was just yesterday that your humble servant went to great lengths to point out how absurdly easy it is for Hamas terrorists from Gaza to stroll across the border at Nahal Oz.
And in the same blog, we pointed out the untenable position that the group of IDF soldiers stationed there are in, undermanned and handcuffed by the absurd IDF rules of engagement.
Well guess what happened following the riots this morning? Apparently (no one knows for sure how many) 30 terrorists waltzed across the border and infiltrated Kissufim.
They found their way into an armory on the kibbutz and stole 6 M16s–and are now (as of 12 pm) somewhere in the area taking potshots at Israeli men, women, and children.
Your humble servant wishes he could claim that he has a magic crystal ball or is unusually prescient, but the truth is that any kindergartner can see what is happening in this country and can predict the future.
