Jerusalem Post ^ | March 13, 2006

Two Palestinians were caught on Sunday night at the Beit Iba checkpoint, west of Nablus, carrying a 20-kilogram explosive device.

The device was hidden in a jug, inside one of the men's bag. Sappers on the scene detonated the device, and the suspects were taken for interrogation.

IDF sources said the device was meant for an attack in Israel.

Strap it on their backs and give them a chance to "run for it."

Purim terror attack thwarted

Palestinian sources said attack was coordinated between Fatah’s military wing, al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, and Islamic Jihad.

IDF soldiers on Sunday evening arrested two Palestinians west of Nablus for trying to smuggle into Israel an explosive device weighing up to 20 kilograms.

The findings of an initial interrogation of the terror suspects revealed that the device was meant to be used in a terror attack over the Purim holiday.

The device was hidden in a jug carried in a bag. Police sappers defused the device.

Palestinian sources said the attack was coordinated between Fatah’s military wing, the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, and the Islamic Jihad.

On Sunday morning a state of high alert was declared across the country ahead of the Purim holiday over fears that terror groups will try to carry out attacks.

The security establishment received 59 warnings of terror attacks, including 14 pinpoint alerts. The IDF will impose a curfew on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip over Purim, and checkpoints will be opened for humanitarian reasons only.

Okay, am I the only one who's disappointed they didn't blow the fellas up along with their own bomb, a la Haman?

Why doesn't Israel simply eradicate the Palestinians? Seriously, what adverse effect would this have upon Israel? Would the rest of the mideast hate them even more? Would the rest of the mideast attack them? I see no downside to genocide of the Palestinian leeches.

It would be in a bad taste, and out of fashion.

somewhat ironic it's Purim....

Haman persuades King Ahasuerus to is an irrevocable decree ordering the killing of all Jews. By casting lots, it was decided to kill them on the 13th day of "Adar" - Later realizing the error, the Jews are allowed to fight back....and the 14th and 15th day of Adar are celebrations

Like Haman - the palestinian demons will hang from thier own gallows

The descendants of Haman never give up... they have come close at times but none of them has never succeeded in wiping out the Jewish people. The lesson of Purim is that misplaced compassion for an antisemite is the misplaced mercy of a fool. You should do to the sons of Agag the Amalekite what he has in store for you before you meet that fate. Which is incidentally why in the Bible, the prophet Samuel slits Agag's throat for emphasis. Happy Purim!

The defenders of Haman hate Purim.

They love to murder Jews on Jewish holidays. It is their M.O.. Bet security is tight on Purim.

Lunar eclipse coming up might be a nice night to take out an Iranian reactor...just in case we need to drop any suggestions in this thread.

Yes, Israel, please take out not one Iranian reactor, but destroy Iran's nuclear weopons capability entirely. And if some ruling mullahs become collateral damage, so be it!

Haman on the gallows. From the Book of Esther illuminated by Arthur Szyk (including a self-portrait with Hamentasch.) He is writing, "The children of Israel will be liberated from their oppressors."

Hopefully this will occur soon . . .
