  1. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

    I’ve a feeling Israel wouldn’t have done this unless they were sure they had a good case — not if it involved the French embassy. Of course, they may have lured the driver into attempting this act; but that wouldn’t actually be illegal.

    GRANTING the legality of Israel’s blockade of Gaza, it may turn out she didn’t do anything wrong here. After all, she has to do something legal at least occasionally. It can’t be helped.

  2. The picture is circulating for over a year. You should highlight the fact it isn’t from the current incident.
    The guy is also blamed for running rifles and pistols.

    How do you know the guy drove a vehicle that enjoyed immunity? This is an unbased assumption.

    1. @ Ariel Koren: No it isn’t. First, Yossi Melman said so. It’s right there in front of your eyes in the tweet in the post. Can’t you read? Second, the Shabak statement today said the same. Stop being ignorant.

        1. @ Ariel Koren: All you had to do was click the tweet and read one of the first tweets in the thread from Melman: לא. למיטב ידיעתינהוא היה עובד מקומי בלי חסינות. למכונית יש חסינות

          It was right there under your nose. Now go and read the thread.

          I also note you failed to mention the Shabak statement which also mentions this. Do your homework before you make false accusations.

    1. @ Elisabeth: Sorry for the confusion. I didn’t know what he allegedly smuggled and used this photo as an example since these were smuggled (but not by him). Today, the Shin Bet has claimed he smuggled pistols and 2 assault rifles.

        1. @ fyi: It is a claim made by Shabak and parroted by the Israeli media. I’m not saying he didn’t do it. But statements made on such subjects in the media are often self-serving and come from military or intelligence agencies. THey should be treated with skepticism. I’m also not discounting the possibility he was entrapped by intelligence agents, a tactic used liberally by the FBI regarding Muslim terror suspects.

  3. ‘…entrapped by intelligence agents, a tactic used liberally by the FBI regarding Muslim terror suspects.’

    …and Richard wins the Colin Wright Prize for Understatement for this week, hands down and running away.

    At last report, recruiting a ‘terrorist’ earned you an average of just under 100k. That’s good money for a few hours of chatting up some moron in a trailer park.
