This is the war we all face in the Clash of Civilizations. And whether it's letting in a cancer patient into Israel or sad refugees into Europe, there will be a price in blood to pay for it.
(JNS.org) Israel foiled an attempt by two Palestinian sisters from Gaza to smuggle explosives disguised as cancer medicine into the coastal territory at the behest of the enclave’s ruling terror group, Hamas.Of course it was. Hamas saw an opening. Just as they see hospitals and UNRWA schools as openings. Islam's Jihad has no room for decency except as a temporary subterfuge.
One of the sisters was issued a special permit to cross into Israel for cancer treatment at an Israeli hospital, the Shin Bet security agency said this week. The pair took advantage of the Israeli leniency and attempted to smuggle explosives in tubes labeled as “medical materials” through the Erez Crossing between Israel and Gaza.
The sisters were “sent by Hamas,” and the explosives “were meant to be used to carry out attacks in Israel in the near future,” according to the Shin Bet.
In March, Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben-Dahan asserted that Hamas was using cancer patients in Gaza as smuggling mules to support and finance terror attacks in Israel.
Some might still remember the case of Wafa Al-Biss
Twenty-one-year-old Wafa Samir Ibrahim al-Biss was arrested Monday morning, June 20, 2005, at the Erez crossing, after attempting to smuggle an explosives belt through the crossing with the intent of carrying out a suicide bombing attack.Fatah, by the way, are Israel's "peace partners" in the two-state solution. They can be trusted almost as much as Wafa.
Wafa, 21, a resident of Jabaliya, aroused the suspicion of the soldiers at the crossing and during her security check, and when she realized they had discovered the explosive belt on her body, she attempted unsuccessfully to detonate it.
Wafa stated in her questioning that she had been dispatched as a suicide bomber by the Fatah al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade infrastructure based in the northern Gaza Strip. Wafa was to use her personal medical authorization documents, allowing her to cross through into Israel to receive medical treatment. Wafa stated that she had been directed to carry out the suicide attack in a crowded Israeli hospital.
Wafa had been admitted to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva between December 2004 and January 2005 for treatment of massive burns she received as a result of a gas-tank explosion.
Wafa was given permission to enter Israel Monday, June 20, for admission to the hospital for medical treatment. The terrorist infrastructure attempted to take advantage of her medical condition in order to carry out a major suicide bombing attack inside Israel.
Only two months earlier, Wafa's family wrote a thank-you note on her behalf to Soroka hospital in the southern Israeli town of Beersheba. They thanked doctors and nurses, especially Igor Resnik and nurse Mazal, for their "great efforts and wonderful, warm attitude" in helping Wafa survive burns over 45 percent of her body. A gas cooker had blown up while she was making dinner, burning her everywhere except her face. Dr. Yuval Krieger, the Israeli doctor who treated Wafa, said she arrived from the Palestinian hospital of Shifa with infected burn wounds. The treatment she had was not good and her burns were dressed incorrectly. "Did you save her life?" Krieger was asked. "I believe so, yes," he replied. But that wasn't all the young woman was armed with. She carried a 20-pound bomb inside her underwear. Her target was the outpatient clinic of Soroka hospital and, inevitably, the doctor who saved her life. Her greatest wish, she told reporters, was to kill 30 to 50 Jews, including children. What we consider decency and goodness, the enemy considers a weakness. We are facing a death cult. And they will eventually repay each kindness we do them with blood. "My dream was to be a martyr. I believe in death," she said. "Today I wanted to blow myself up in a hospital, maybe even in the one in which I was treated. But since lots of Arabs come to be treated there, I decided I would go to another, maybe the Tel Hashomer, near Tel Aviv. I wanted to kill 20, 50 Jews …'' This is a death cult. This is the enemy. If you pity them, they will kill you. A would-be Palestinian suicide bomber freed by Israel in the prisoner swap for soldier Gilad Shalit told cheering schoolchildren in the Gaza Strip the day after her release on Wednesday she hoped they would follow her example. "I hope you will walk the same path we took and Allah willing, we will see some of you as martyrs," Wafa al-Biss told dozens of children who came to her home in the northern Gaza Strip.
