#1 ...those doing planning the attack were members of the Popular Resistance Committees.

Typical, incompetance by committee. Well, I guess we should be thankful they aren't more capable.

#3 I agree, LH, but the actual events aren't so clear. If this news report is accurate, all the shooting was done by the militants, and several of the Paleo coppers are in hospital in quite serious condition. But yes, it does look like they were attempting to police their border.

#4 Now they are in power , its a bit of a nightmare not knowing who's goin across the borders .. Is it the Peoples Judean Front , or the Judean Peoples Front , aaaw fuck .. if its not Hamas authorized , kill em or at least try .. The last thing they want is a precision guided bomb on their cabinet .. hence they are attempting to look like they are attempting to police the border ..
I bet the Israeli guards had a laugh watching that one unfold

hmm hope that made sense .. :)

#5 AL don’t get to happy or feel surprised this is just more like rival gang warfare over who’s turf is what. The Popular Resistance Committees is supported by Hezbollah in Lebanon who is supported by Iran. On top of that the Committees leader just happened to get the top security post and orders to form a new security force for PA made up of terrorist and to fit with all these other coincident this just happened to happen right after the Iranian agreement with Hamas for financial support.

So Fatah who is getting the boot on the security forces and I imagine aren’t to keen on letting these guys run their ops in their faces. That would explain why the PA made a fight of this. But the real question is Jordan rolling up Hamas/Syria (Iranian ally) weapons agents who were planning ops in Jordan, you got PRC leader getting sudden top job by Hamas who just met with Iran, and recent ops in Egypt by these very groups. In Iraq we got Sadr boys showing up in Kirkuk see
AQ videos from both Bin Laden and Zark, Mullahs running here and there making threats of attacks just like these above all over the world. Think maybe Iran is running interference with their proxies or trying to say something?

A little info on the main suspect group Popular Resistance Committees.

“The group is also suspected of being under the influence of Hezbollah, but no definitive connections between the groups have been discovered yet. “
In talking about the Gaza part of the operation undertaken against Egypt. The Gaza part was a VIED that was stopped by PA security forces. Not mentioned but I would guess those security forces were loyal to old school Fatah who has a dog in this fight because of their want to get back in power.
“There was no claim of responsibility, but PA security officials suspect the Popular Resistance Committees were behind the attempt. Last week, Jamal Abu Samhadanah, the leader of the group, was appointed director-general of the PA Interior Ministry by PA Interior Minister Said Siam, setting off a crisis between the Hamas-led government and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. “

Irans fingers are all over all of these recent events everywere you look if you just dig they are thier.
