Palestinian Values - again
A palestinian "activist" again gave evidence of the moral values the palestinian society breeds: He blew himself up outside a shopping mall in Netanya killing at least 5, injuring at least 35 and traumatizing many more. Both the Al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigades and Islamic Jihad claimed to be responsible for this latest mass murder.
Netanya has in the past repeatedly been the target of palestinian terrorists coming from the disputed territories, mostly out of the Tulkarm region.
Still wonder why there is a security fence separating Israel from these people...? By the way, Netanya is one of the few places where the security fence is a real concrete wall, the distance between Netany and Tulkarm being only 13 km. Whatever the israeli reaction to this will be, all means will be engaged by the palestinians and the MSM to let it appear as being totally disproportionate and "harmful to the 'peace process' ".
UPDATE (05.12.2005, 15:15): Sotek points out that this latest attack, since it has probably been carried out by the Islamic Jihad, underlines the importance of the influence of the Iranian-Syrian axis on palestinian terrorism. This is to be taken into account in "solving" the problem.
Besides this, it seems that the suicide bomber indeed came from the region of Tulkarm.
