Israel Foils HIV Bomb Plot

This is horrifying to even think about:

Israel today said it had foiled a plot to use a bomb laced with HIV-infected blood in a suicide attack during the Passover holiday.

Israel’s Shin Beth security service today said militants had been planning to dispatch a suicide bomber from the northern West Bank town of Qalqilya to Tel Aviv to carry out the attack during the week-long Jewish holiday which ended yesterday.

The plot was exposed after the arrest of a member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a radical offshoot of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement, in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, a Shin Beth spokeswoman said.

‘The terrorist cell apparently planned to obtain contaminated blood from some Palestinian hospitals but they had not passed the preliminary stage in their preparations,’ she said.”

Thank God.
