Pals Used Booby-Trapped Wheelchair in Jenin
Lt.-Col. Tal, who lives in a Jezreel Valley with his wife and three daughters, fought in the recent anti-terrorism offensive in Jenin. "[We] went to great lengths to avoid hurting civilians," he said. "[We] discovered that the Palestinian shooters were using civilians as shields. A shooter inside a house might hide behind an old woman, firing at [us]. Bombs and booby traps were everywhere.
If Israelis killed a Palestinian, the dead man's colleagues would booby trap his body. At one point, Palestinians booby trapped a wheelchair and pushed its occupant into the open in hope of attracting Israeli soldiers to become victims..."
"What's your opinion of the Palestinian fighter?" Tal was asked. "Have they become more determined?" His response: "In my eyes, they are not 'fighters.' Someone who hides in a hospital, a graveyard, a church, or behind women and children -- that's not a fighter."

The Palestinians specialize in turning their own civilians into casualties so that they can claim the IDF commits war crimes. They also use Red Crescent ambulances to transport suicide/homicide bombers, and use girls and boys to murder themselves and innocent Israel civilians. Will will Arafat, Bargouti, Tirawi, and the other Pal terrorist leaders going to be tried for war crimes?

Annan: "We, at the Imperial Holy UN, encourage the use of dynamited-wheelchairs to kill Christians, Jews, or Americans.
Now before you go away, be sure that you send the reparations you owe me and my wife to my New York address."
I see you are out on "mandatory release".
I thought things like mines & booby traps were outlawed by the World Court and Princes Dianna.I guess it depends who sets out the mines.

booby trapped a wheelchair and pushed its occupant into the open
An OCCUPIED wheelchair was booby-trapped.
"Feral" seems an apt adjective for these thugs.
Time to thin the herd.

Fortunately, the IDF videotaped some of the operation, including the gunfire from the Jenin mosques, and the Pals' booby-trapped explosives going off. I wasn't there, but I consider this source far more reliable than the sources followed by Pal sympathizers.

In at least one of the cases where the Israelis claimed an ambulance was used to transport a bomber, the claim was later retracted by the Israelis -- they said they had thought there were explosives on or under the patient, but that this later proved not to be the case. I don't know if there have been any confirmed cases of this practice.
