Details on Gaza suicide bombing -09:40-IST-OCT/26/00

The following comes from a news service which you can subscribe to. (Details near the end). Be warned that if you do, you will receive about 20 emails a day at the moment - and more at times.

The video came in separately from Daniel Epstein just as I was preparing this forward & was so appropriate that I attach it here.

In the current situation where we seem to have handed over the intiative to very a skilled PR machine, the least we can do is stay informed and inform as many people as possible - Jews and non-Jews of the truth.

I know that we all suffer from email overload. If you want to be removed from my "propaganda list", please let me know.

More details on Gaza suicide bombing attack (IsraelWire-10/26-09:40-IST) A suicide bomber, presumably a child traveling on a bicycle, detonated an explosive device adjacent to an IDF outpost between Khan Yunis and Kfar Darom. One soldier sustained very light injuries.

According to IDF OC Southern Commander Major-General Yomtov Samiya, it appears almost for certain at this time that the suicide bomber was a child judging by the size of the charred remains of the skeleton. He stated that the findings were preliminary at this stage. Samiya added that this was not the first time that a bicycle was used in such a terror attack, and told Israel Radio that once again we see the “horrific use of children by the PLO Authority (PA)” to continue its campaign of terror. Samiya stated it was difficult to understand how a small school child carrying a schoolbag and riding a bicycle could be used to perpetrate such an attack.

The senior commander added that preliminary information points to the Islamic Jihad organization, but “there is no doubt that the attack was the under the direct orders of the PA,” he added.

Samiya stated that this is not cause for panic, and stressed the military in Gaza is prepared for the worst. He pointed out that the fortified outpost prevented any serious injuries, explaining his forces are well protected and remain on high alert.

IsraelWire will provide additional details as they are made available.
