    'Free Galilee' terror group claims attempted Haifa bombing | Israel | Jerusalem Post

    The 'Free Galilee' terror group claimed responsibility for an attempted car bombing attack at a Haifa mall on Saturday night.

    The massive attack was averted after one of several explosive devices hidden in a parked vehicle malfunctioned.

    After being alerted by an employee of the Lev Hamifratz shopping center, who reported hearing an explosion at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, police sappers were dispatched to scan the area.
    The sappers found a partially exploded bomb in the trunk of a white Subaru car which was parked outside the shopping center.
    A further search of the vehicle uncovered several more unexploded bombs, which were neutralized by the sappers. No one was injured.
    It was not immediately clear how the vehicle managed to get past the security checks at the mall entrance. The car was registered to a woman who lives in Jerusalem, but police would not release her identity. Northern District head Cmdr. Shimon Koren told Army Radio on Sunday morning that the vehicle had been stolen.
    Police immediately moved to evacuate the mall, which was filled with shoppers, and sealed off the area.
    A major road adjacent to the mall was also closed to traffic, as police went on high alert across the Haifa area. Roadblocks were erected and the police presence was increased in crowded areas.
    The mall and the surrounding area were reopened on Sunday morning.
    Northern Police spokesman Moshe Weitzman told The Jerusalem Post that "dozens of kilograms of explosives" were uncovered in the car.
    "We have gone on alert and will remain prepared," Weitzman said.
    A joint police-Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) meeting was held in the hours following the incident.

    But...but... but... Israel isn't supposed to have checkpoints. It might insult terrorists.

    It's Israel's fault that terrorists bomb Israel which causes Israel to bomb terrorists that causes terrorists to bomb Israel and on and on and on.

    Enough of your bullshit. If the fucking Arabs would stop playing the role of a victim and finally take responsibility for themselves, they wouldn't continuously be bombed by Israel. But hey, don't let the facts stand in the way of your argument. Keep making this about what Israel does....

    Note to everyone else who lives in REALITY: Israel only attacks AFTER it's attacked. It took nearly 10,000 rockets fired at Israel to respond in kind. The next bomb that goes off or rocket that lands in a kindergarten, I say Israel just says "FUCK IT" and levels all of Gaza. No country would ever tolerate this shit the way Israel does. Maybe one million dead Arabs will finally teach the world a lesson: STOP KILLING JEWS.

    The Israeli Government is indeed a government to be condemned. Their disproportionate patience and constant appeasement of international criticizers is absolutely pathetic, and traitorous. The Government needs to respond to rocket attacks after every individual instance.

    Every time a rocket is fired increases the chances of one of those rockets hitting a child. While idiots like Shogun and other Arabs can't understand why such a "low" number of rocket-related deaths upsets us so much, its because we value and cherish each and every life. Unlike the Muslims, there isn't more than a billion expendable Jews.

    Essentially...

    Of course, terrorists should be blamed for choosing civilian targets. Attacks against the Israeli military and government are mostly justifiable, though. It's a war, ain't it?

    Take responsibility for themselves? How, exactly, are Palestinians supposed to be able to do anything with the blockade still in place? If Israel ended its apartheid-like policies and collaborated with Egypt to lift the blockade, prosperity would be possible if efforts were also made to rebuild what Israel has destroyed. Until then, the Palestinians aren't going to be able to do shit outside of venting their frustration by supporting terrorist groups and lobbing poorly-constructed rockets towards Israeli population centers.

    How many died from those rocket attacks, again?

    Israel would subsequently be overrun by every Islamic country in its vicinity. The US wouldn't be there to change its diaper and hand it munitions.

    You mad? Go ahead and masturbate to thoughts of an Arab genocide, tough guy. It'll never happen.

    Kalam, how many rockets would you allow to fall in and around your house(as long as no one was killed) before you called the police?
