Suicide Among Palestinians Prevalent

Shin Bet nabs 14-year-old would-be suicide bomber
By JPOST.COM STAFF


A 14-year-old Palestinian boy suspected of planning a suicide attack in Israel was arrested Tuesday by members of the Shin Bet in the Balata refugee camp near Nablus, the Shin Bet released Wednesday morning.

The boy said that members of the Tanzim coerced him into reading his will on videotape while holding a gun and a Koran book, saying that if he did not do so, they would say that he was a traitor working with Israeli forces.

An Israeli security spokesperson said that Palestinian General Intelligence Officer Jamal Karnawi pressed the Tanzim to recruit the boy, according to an Army Radio report.

An example of the oppressive powers of "weak" peoples onto their own. It turns out that it's not only the powerful that are corrupt, as the myth goes.
