Palestinian Gunmen Ambush Israeli Worshippers
Palestinian gunmen ambushed a van of Israeli worshippers returning from a disputed [Smooth Stone: “Disputed”? “Violated” by the Palestinians who can’t be trusted to keep an agreement, is more like it.] holy site Friday morning, wounding seven passengers.
Early Friday, Palestinians ambushed a vanload of Jews who had just visited Joseph’s Tomb, a site inside Nablus, the largest Palestinian city in the West Bank. Israeli soldiers abandoned the site three years ago and Palestinians ransacked and burned it. The military has banned Israelis from entering the site.
Seven of the passengers were shot and wounded. The Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, an armed group with loose ties to Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement, claimed responsibility. Al Aqsa gunmen drove the van into the nearby Balata refugee camp and burned it, witnesses said.
Some Jews believe that the biblical Joseph is buried at the site. Palestinians say it is the tomb of a sheik.
And this sheik’s name is? Sheik Falsify? Sheik Mendacity? Sheik Kleptocracy? Sheik Perjure? Sheik Concoct? Sheik Invalidate? Sheik Supercede? Sheik Nix? Sheik Nullify? Sheik Erase? Sheik Fabricate? Sheik Expunge? Sheik Make-Up-Whatever-The-Hell-Name-You-Want, No-One-Will-Bother-To-Research? What a lying bunch of predators.
