Bomb Factory Found in Palestinian Mosque

Remember during January's IDF and IAF operations in Gaza, when the media constantly accused Israel of deliberately bombing civilian buildings with absolutely no justification?

Well, you'll be astounded to here that there was a justification after all - Hamas regularly use mosques and schools as bomb factories so they can cry foul if they're caught - even in the West Bank.

From Israel National News:

(IsraelNN.com) Hamas terrorists in Kalkilya built a large supply of bombs and stored them in a local mosque without raising suspicion from local Palestinian Authority armed forces who represent the rival Fatah faction. However, the terrorists were out of luck on Wednesday, Passover eve, when a simple electric shortage gave away their plans.

The shortage caused a small fire in the mosque, bringing PA forces to the building, where they found bombs ready for use and large cannisters of bomb-making materials. The mosque was closed down, and PA sappers removed the explosives.

The bombs were then turned over to the IDF, which sent experts to detonate the weapons in a controlled explosion.

A captain in the PA forces told Israeli journalists that the mosque had been used to both produce and store the bombs. “It was a huge weapons lab,” he said.

Four people have been arrested in connection to the incident, he said, two of them members of Hamas and two “everyday citizens.”

Kalkilya and surrounding villages have been the source of several recent attacks on Israeli citizens. Two Israelis were wounded in rock attacks in the past month when driving in the area, and other rock and firebomb attacks on vehicles have been reported.

Kalkilya is located just minutes from the Israeli city of Kfar Saba and the Trans-Israel highway.

However, due to the Judea and Samaria security barrier, Kalkilya terrorists have largely turned away from attacking Israelis in those areas, and have focused on harming Jews in Samaria.

A bit off topic here...

But have you seen Liberty, Mine around? I went to his blog and found that it had been taken down - wondering if he is okay.

Hi Holger,

I sent him an email after his blog was taken down and found that he'd deleted it - he said it was becoming time consuming and he was a bit worried about his bosses finding out he kept it.

He seems OK, he wants to concentrate on other aspects of his writing.

I don't have his new email to hand, but I think he left a comment on my post about the 4 policemen who were killed in California - his new email is linked through his old user name.

And yet the fiction continues that mosques are places of worship and therefore are to not be attacked. Just how long will we allow ourselves to be willingly deceived by izlam?

It is well known by all who will listen that lying is an established good within izlam if it is beneficial to izlam. Thus they will tell us anything at all that they find useful, and we foolishly believe them, even as we repeatedly prove otherwise. We insist that we do this so that they will respect our churches. Just what church has izlam ever respected? Hagia Sophia? The monasteries in Serbia that are now mosques? It goes on and on. Muzlims do not respect anything that is Christian, ever! We simply deceive ourselves when we say that they will. We think that they understand "honor" in the same way that we do, but they do not. They understand honor as victory and nothing else. When will we learn?

This is why separation is the only solution. We simply cannot live with them in the same place. They must depart from among us, NOW!
