Palestinians murder woman, distribute candy and flowers

YNet reports:

A woman was murdered [at about 10:30 AM] Monday morning and about 10 people were injured in a terror attack carried out by a suicide bomber at a commercial center in the southern Israeli city of Dimona.

A police officer who was in the area, [Chief Inspector] Kobi Mor, shot and killed another terrorist. The explosive device on the second bomber’s body did not explode, and sappers were dispatched to the scene of the attack to detonate the device in a controlled manner.

Fatah’s al-Aqsa brigades took ‘credit’ for the attack. There are conflicting reports as to whether the terrorists originally came from Gaza and crossed the Egyptian border, or from Hebron by way of an area where the security fence has not yet been built.

Chief Inspector Kobi MorMor, the police officer, was a hero, shooting the second terrorist in the head as he tried to activate his explosive belt. Had he missed, he and numerous others would likely have been killed or seriously injured.

Palestinians in Gaza celebrated the joyous event by passing out candy and flowers. It takes a special kind of culture to take pleasure in randomly ending the lives of innocent people out shopping, but we don’t need to go there today.

This is the first successful suicide attack in Israel since January of last year, when three people were killed in a bakery in Eilat.

Although suicide bombings are dramatic, one mustn’t forget the almost daily shootings, stabbings, rocket and mortar attacks, etc.

Although the police and other security services do a remarkably effective job of intercepting terrorists, even a 99% success rate means that one will get through every 100 attempts. And there are plenty of attempts.

There are several steps that Israel could take to improve the odds. One would be to close the gaps in the security fence (and now this includes the Egyptian border). Another would be to target those who plan the attacks, recruit the bombers, etc. It should be no less suicidal to organize bombings than to carry them out. It goes without saying that when such terrorist planners are arrested, they should be executed, rather than released in prisoner swaps, goodwill gestures, etc.

And it seems silly to continue talks with Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas, who is unable, unwilling (or both) to do anything to stop Palestinian terrorism.

  1. Muslims Against Sharia condemn the murderers responsible for the homicide bombing in Dimona as well as degenerate perpetuation of the culture of death in Gaza.

    Our prayers are with the victims of this atrocity. We send our condolences to their loved ones.

    May the homicide bomber rot in hell for eternity. May his accomplices and animals who celebrated this horrendous act join him soon!

    This is a perfect illustration of what seems to be a governing truth in regard to the Palestinians relation to Israel and Israelis. The Palestinians care more to see the Jews destroyed than they care for their own benefit and well- being. Their resentment and anger at Israel is greater than their own concern to build their own society.
    It is sad and even pathetic to see small children handing out sweets at the death of others.
    What kind of a society teaches such values to young people? Where is any hint whatsoever of a sense of humanity, of common humanity?
