Shin Bet uncovers Palestinian terror plot

The Shin Bet (The Israel Security Agency) has uncovered a Palestinian plot to kidnap and hold hostage an Israeli citizen to be used as a negotiating asset. The plot was supposedly created while three of the five terrorist cell members were serving sentences together in an Israeli prison.

JPost reports:

The Shin Bet noted that the revelation came just weeks after Israel had reached an agreement with Palestinian prisoners ending a two-month long hunger strike, in which the prisoners had pledged to refrain from engaging in anti-Israel terror activity.

The Shin Bet said that the cell operated as part of a terrorist group called “Holy Freedom Fighters,” which split off from Fatah’s Al-Aqsa brigades in 2007.

The group has been involved in the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israel as well as a number of roadside bomb attacks against IDF troops patrolling the Gaza Strip border. The Shin Bet said the group also served as something of a proxy for Hamas which provides it with financial and logistical support.

    Sounds like a good argument for mandatory swift executions of convicted terrorists.

Answering His Call, Faithfully and Joyfully

2014 has certainly been a year of struggles. But those challenges have been answered by God, and by His faithful followers. The Fellowship and our generous friends have been able to offer assistance to those who need it most, from the Holy Land to the former Soviet Union, and we look hopefully to the coming year as one of peace, prosperity, and repairing the world.
