'Palestinians' abuse goodwill to attack IsraelWritten by Ryan Jones
Palestinian Arab terrorists continue to abuse Israeli goodwill in order to carry out murderous attacks against Jewish men, women and children, as evidenced by Monday's arrest of a would-be female “suicide” bomber in Gaza.
Wafa Samir Ibrahim Bas, 21, had been granted ongoing access to “Israel proper” in order to obtain treatment at Beersheva's Soroka Medical Center for burns she suffered during a gas tank explosion earlier in year.
A terror group affiliated with PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas's ruling Fatah faction took advantage of situation, and convinced Bas to strap explosives to her body and detonate them during her next visit to hospital.
Speaking from an Israeli prison hours after her arrest, Bas said she had hoped to kill as many as 50 Jews, including as many children as possible.
“I love Allah, I love land of Palestine and I am a member of [Fatah's] Al-Aksa Brigades,” she declared.
Security officials noted this was not first case of Palestinian Arabs making use of Israeli humanitarian goodwill in an effort to murder Jews.
IDF removes the gloves against Islamic JihadWritten by Ryan Jones
In absence of Palestinian Authority efforts to disarm and dismantle terrorist infrastructure in accordance with signed peace agreements, Israel Tuesday gave a green light to its security forces to go on offensive against Islamic Jihad.
IDF soldiers arrested over 50 members of terror group during predawn raids in Judea and Samaria, less than a day after Islamic Jihad gunmen murdered an Israeli motorist in northern Samaria.
The detainees included local Jenin-area Islamic Jihad commander, who security officials said was involved in manufacture of rockets and in planning a series of attacks against Israeli Jews.
Israel had refrained from acting against “Palestinian” terror groups outside of arresting “ticking bombs” for past several months, following announcement of a one-sided ceasefire brokered by PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas.
That ceasefire, however, was marked by unabated Arab aggression against Israel's Jewish population, while Abbas demanded additional Israeli concessions in return for purported truce.
