Miracle in the Sinai

Israel's Channel 2 television disclosed on Wednesday that a bus of Israeli tourists in the Sinai in July did not fall victim to a terror attack because of a glitch in the bombing mechanism that was meant to murder them.
The National Security Council's Counter-Terrorism Division said that in the July incident, terrorists caught up with a bus carrying Israeli tourists from Taba to Sharm e-Sheikh and attempted to fire an explosive at the vehicle near Nuweiba.

The Israelis on the bus were not aware that their lives were in danger. It was discovered that only a technical malfunction with the bomb prevented the explosion, allowing the bus to continue on its course.

The Counter-Terrorism Division reiterated its warning against traveling to the Sinai, citing "concrete" threats of kidnappings or attacks on Israeli targets, as well as a major terror attack believed to be planned by Hizbullah on the peninsula.

A primary concern of security officials is that Hizbullah members will attempt to kidnap Israeli tourists and take them to the Gaza Strip, where it would be nearly impossible to locate them.
But thousands of Israelis will ignore the warning and travel to Sinai during the upcoming Sukkot holiday the week after next.

What could go wrong?

That's Nuweiba at the top of this post - I slept on the beach there about 30 years ago when the Sinai was part of Israel.

Stupid Jews who place themselves in danger after being warned to avoid it, should be outside Israel's protection. This is not the same as what happened to Gilad Shalit. He was forcibly abducted against his will from his own country.

And its disgusting to see mindless Jews subsidize the Jew-hating country of Egypt with their Sinai vacations!
