    10 years to Arab-Islamic Palestinians' infamous 'Passover Massacre,' (30 killed, 140 injured), the attempted cyanide gas attack

    'Passover massacre' at a Israeli hotel in Netanya, kills 30, injures 140.

    The victims, mainly elderly, included Holocaust survivers,[1] were sitting at the traditional Seder dinner. It was carried out by Hamas' male terrorist wearing a woman's wig disguised as a female[2] (which helped him to sneak in). The bomber tried to release the deadly cyanide gas[3][4] --to enhance bloodshed-- but failed. Years later, the Palestinian-Authority honored[5] the mastermind Abd Al-Basset Odeh.
