Yet another suicide bombing

01.14.04

There’s been another suicide bombing in Israel. A female Palestinian suicide bomber blew herself up at a Gaza checkpoint, murdering at least four Israelis, in a case that yet again displays how every attempt by the Israelis to extend courtesies to the Palestinians is exploited and thrown back in their faces:

Brig.-Gen. Gadi Shamni told reporters that the woman evaded metal detectors by claiming she had platinum insets in her legs.

Shamni said she was taken to a side office and then fell over, the Jerusalem Post reported. When soldiers rushed to her help, she blew herself up.

“Because she was a woman, a female soldier was sent for, to inspect her. The terrorist made use of the waiting period for the arrival of the woman soldier, made her way further into the complex, and exploded,” Shamni said.

You can imagine how the human rights groups would scream if, heaven forbid, a male soldier were to inspect women who set off metal detectors. How could they deny the terrorists these valuable loopholes to claim more innocent lives?

[E]very attempt by the Israelis to extend courtesies to the Palestinians is exploited and thrown back in their faces:

Well, that’s not an accident. Like sending bombers in ambulances, it’s a win-win plan. If it works, and they kill a lot of people, great. If the Israelis start checking ambulances, they get to tell constant stories (some of them even true) about pregnant women dying at checkpoints.

The absolute goal of this new bombing, exploiting humanitarian concerns at a checkpoint thousands of Gazans cross to get to work was 100% to create new hardships for Palestinian civilians. Killing a few Israeli soldiers was just a bonus.
