    The sniper's plan: kill six whites a day for 30 days By Harry Mount in New York (Filed: 25/05/2006) One of the two snipers who murdered 10 people in a killing spree that terrorised Washington has revealed their plans to kill hundreds of children, policemen and rescue workers in an attempt to shut down cities across the country. John Allen Muhammad, 45, and his accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, 21, brought America's capital to a standstill in 2002 as they picked off white targets at petrol stations and shops in the city's prosperous suburbs.

    PMW has documented the repeated use of foreign funding by both the PA and Hamas for terror and glorification of terror. The following is another case of well intended humanitarian assistance given to Palestinians that is appropriated for military or terror purposes: "The [Palestinian] Health Ministry stated yesterday that Hamas militias had raided 46 ambulances, donated by Arab states during the recent aggression on the Gaza Strip, of the medical equipment that they contained... and used them as military vehicles to arrest civilians, after painting [the ambulances] black.

    (IsraelNN.com) Hamas - and not Israel - was the reason ambulances could not reach victims, a Gaza ambulance driver told the Sydney Morning Herald. He said that Hamas terrorists tried to hijack an entire fleet of Al-Quds ambulances during Operation Cast Lead. Foreign media quoted Hamas officials and Gaza Arabs several times during the war that Israel blocked ambulances from reaching dying victims, but Mohammed Shriteh, a 30-year-old driver for the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, told the Australian newspaper Monday that the Israel Defense Forces actually worked with the Red Crescent. "We would co-ordinate with the Israelis before we pick...

    Terrorists linked to Al-Qaeda may be planning to buy former NHS ambulances and police cars to mount suicide bomb attacks in Britain, MI5 has warned. They may import a tactic already used in Iraq and Israel, according to a report by MI5’s Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre to chief constables. In a statement to The Sunday Times, the Association of Chief Police Officers also warned of the risk of such an attack. It said ministers must legislate to stop the sale of such vehicles. Its move has been backed by Lord Carlile of Berriew, the government’s terrorism watchdog. He said he...

    BAGRAM AIR BASE, Afghanistan, Feb. 12, 2008 – Doctors and medics here received a new tool to aid in the treatment of wounded servicemembers on the battlefield. The tool is a little too big to carry in a medic’s aid bag, and it comes equipped with armor and a crew-served weapon. The newest configuration of the mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicle -- the MRAP ambulance -- was shown to the Combined Joint Task Force 82 staff yesterday. Having the MRAP ambulance brings survivability to the battlefield, Army Lt. Col. Coll Hadden, the forward MRAP joint program manager, said. Hadden said the vehicles...

    JERUSALEM - The international media this week buzzed with the news that Israel had accused the UN of allowing its ambulances in Gaza to participate in terrorist activities, only to back down when local representatives of the world body fought back. But far less attention was given to the fact that the head of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA) in the Gaza Strip openly admitted Monday to having Hamas members on the payroll.

    On Monday the Israeli ambassador to the UN demanded the resignation of Peter Hansen, the head of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, accusing him of complicity in terror. However, the story began to unravel when the agency claimed that the object in the video was too thin and light to be a missile and that a militant would be more careful in handling a crude, homemade explosive device. A day later the agency produced the driver of the ambulance in question, who said that the object was a rolled-up stretcher and his crew had been on...

    Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz announced today (Sunday) that UNWRA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees) ambulances were used to steal and transport body parts of Israeli soldiers killed in last Wednesday’s bomb attack on the Philadelphi route in southern Gaza. The senior minister called upon UN Secretary-General Kofi Anan to address the disturbing phenomenon. At today’s cabinet meeting, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom said that the UN ambulance, which had also been used to transport terrorists, had been captured by security forces near the Philadelphi area. He said that only after intense diplomatic pressure did UNRWA announce that...

    Fallujah, Iraq-AP -- Hundreds of residents of Fallujah, Iraq, are again streaming from the city, as a tenuous cease-fire between coalition forces and insurgents remains in place. An Associated Press reporter notes the streets are largely deserted, except for those who are fleeing for the perceived safety of the outskirts of the city. Meanwhile, skirmishing goes on. In one incident today, U-S Marines shot and killed two insurgents who were trying to set up a machine gun on a street. Then, an ambulance pulled up and a man jumped out, trying to collect the weapons of the deceased rather than...

    How should democracies like the U.S. and Israel respond to terrorist attacks that use ambulances loaded with explosives? Terrorists deliberately employ these protected vehicles for two reasons: to fool those whose job it is to prevent acts of terrorism and - the more long-range reason - to provoke the democracies into violating human rights laws by stopping real ambulances and people in medical need. This pattern appears to be spreading. In October, an ambulance was used to blow up a Red Cross headquarters in Iraq. In January, an ambulance blew up a Baghdad hotel. Also in January, a woman feigning...

    Rashed Tarek al-Nimr, a cousin of PLO executive head Farouk Kadoumi, who worked as a chemist in hospitals in Nablus and Bethlehem, supplied chemicals he took from the hospitals to Hamas for use in making bombs. He told the Shin Bet he used ambulances to transport the chemicals. Details of his arrest on November 24 were released by the Shin Bet on Wednesday. Nimr met a number of Hamas members, including senior commanders from the Nablus area, who hid inside the hospitals to evade arrest. Several months prior to his arrest, he met Khaled Abu Hamed, a senior Hamas commander,...

A senior commander was quoted in an agency report as saying that the decision was made at a meeting of STPs, the first line of medical help for injured troops on the front, after fierce battles with Iraqi forces in Nasiriyah last week. STP ambulances that were displaying the red cross were clearly and significantly targeted by Iraqis armed with rocket-propelled grenade launchers, he reportedly said. Under...

The hearing concerned Aslam Jabril, a 'Red Crescent' ambulance driver who is charged with using ambulances to transport weapons to terrorists of the Al Aksa Martyrs' Brigades in Shechem and Ramallah. The accused pleaded guilty to having transported, in his ambulance, guns and explosive belts for use in planned terror attacks. On at least one occasion, Jabril transported a doctor and his brother's wife and children in order hide the...

    Friday, December 13, 2002 Immigrants Swamp Border Hospitals By Lynn Brezosky The Associated Press BROWNSVILLE, Texas — Ambulances regularly race across the bridges of the Rio Grande, bringing some of Mexico's most ill to the nearest U.S. emergency room. Obligated by federal law, the hospitals provide the care and worry later about whether the billing addresses patients give them are accurate. Often the addresses are false — and the hospitals get stuck with the bill. Immigrant patients have inflated medical expenses for insurance companies, Medicaid and paying customers, officials say, and are overwhelming already busy hospitals in one of the...

    NEWARK, N.J. -- An attempt by two Middle Eastern men to buy a fake ambulance spurred authorities to issue warnings that terrorists may seek to use bogus emergency vehicles as weapons, authorities said. About two weeks ago, two men walked into Movie Time Cars Inc., a Lyndhurst company that rents replicas of ambulances and police cars to TV and film producers. The men offered to pay cash to buy a replica ambulance, said Joe Sargo, the company's owner. Sargo, suspicious, told the men he does not sell vehicles to anyone. The men quickly left, but an employee jotted down...
