Shin Bet officials announced on Wednesday that they have arrested three Palestinians, two of them East Jerusalem residents with Israeli identification cards, for alleged involvement in an Al-Qaida plan to carry out terror attacks in Israel. The group had planned two simultaneous suicide attacks, the Shin Bet said, one at the International Convention Center in Jerusalem and the other at the United States embassy in Tel Aviv.
The three men were arrested on December 25, a gag order on the case lifted Wednesday revealed. A high-ranking Shin Bet official told reporters in Tel Aviv that a member of one of the Al-Qaida-linked global jihad groups operating in Gaza had recruited the three men over the Internet. The recruiter, who identified himself only by the religious nickname Arib al-Sham (the outstanding one from Syria), told them that he worked for Ayman al-Zawahiri, who took over the leadership of Al-Qaida after the Americans killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011.
Shin Bet officials say that the method of recruitment - through Facebook, Skype and, in one case, encrypted communication software on the Internet - is nothing out of the ordinary. Most global jihad groups operating in the Middle East use the same or similar methods: they scour the Internet to search for candidates, issue orders and learn methods of operation. This is followed by a meeting with the handlers and a brief training period before carrying out the plan. Even though many of these attempts fail, or are prevented by the intelligence agencies of various countries, there have been quite a few instances of success.

Thanks Israel. I will thank you. Obama will not. It will be yelling at the Muzzies for failing to get it accomplished.
lesse Obama and DHS give Muslime B hood VIP tx at airports and Kerry and company threaten EU boycotts of Israeli goods if Israel doesn’t return all their land and surrender their genocidal ways...there’s more but that’s a start
Seems we are getting closer.
Good job, Israel!
a common method is recruiting through facebook?
Good on Israel. Lord knows we won’t do anything to protect our embassies.
Pali’s with AQ ties....
NSA tip or did the TSA feel them out?
You mean they’re not “core” [undefined] Al Qaeda?
Facebook being used to recruit terrorists. The only thing funnier would be if it had been Myspace.

Seems we are getting closer.]
Agreed. We are warned of the latter day signs in the Scriptures so we can look up and know that our redemption draws near and all who look for Jesus Christ will receive a crown to throw at His feet in the future world. Come Lord Jesus, let them that hate you flee from you.
[someone Barry wants to rub out ???]
America’s obamanation wants to rub out Israel and America as his master satan also does. And Islam is but one of satans deceived tools.
