And again IDF thwarts terror attacks!

As Ehud K. Olmert sits down with 'moderate' 'Palestinian President' Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen in Jerusalem to discuss the latter's cooperation with Hamas, the IDF has released for publication that it thwarted two terror attacks in the Jerusalem area last week, one in Jerusalem itself in the Har Homa neighborhood, and the other in Gush Etzion just outside the city:
IDF forces succeeded in preventing two shooting attacks targeting the Jews of Gush Etzion and the southern Jerusalem Har Homa neighborhood in the past week.

The attacks were planned in Gaza by the Popular Resistance Committee, a terrorist logistical planning group made up of members of all of the Arab terror groups operating in the Palestinian Authority.

Early Thursday morning, IDF soldiers in Bethlehem arrested three terrorists involved in the implementation of the attacks. Ta’a Hassan Abu Alya was wanted for a number of shooting attacks in Gush Etzion that failed to injure or kill anyone and for the production of explosives. Yakoub Aymad Al-Kadar Nubani was involved in shooting attacks in the same region in 2001, at the start of the Oslo War. Mahmoud Abed Raba was poised to carry out attacks on the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Homa and motorists using the main Tunnels Road leading from the capital southward to Gush Etzion.

Israel’s reentry into PA-assigned Bethlehem and its environs in 2002 drastically reduced the many shooting attacks originating in the area since the start of the Oslo War two years earlier. Rock and fire-bomb attacks are on the rise, however.
I often wonder how many people here really understand that without the IDF's vigilance with God's help, we would be back where we were in the dark days of 2001.
