Coming on the heels of Arafat's Nobel Prize for Peace, and the Palestinian Authority's First Place Darwin Award win in 1999, the Palestinian Authority is poised to potentially win another Darwin award for 2008 (G-d willing).
In their rush to take credit for the Dimona terrorist bombing the other day, the Al Alksa Martyr's Brigade (part of Fatah, the ruling party of the Palestinian Authority) proudly announced on their website (complete with "farewell" videos) that the 2 terrorists who died (Mussa Arafat and Lawai Lawani) were sent by the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade. Fatah reported that one terrorist blew himself up; the other was wounded by the blast yet when he tried to detonate himself in a "second wave" attack, (much to the angst of Haaretz reporter, Gidon Levy), the terrorist was "executed, like a wounded animal."
So where's the Darwin award?
WND has the scoop via the Israeli police. Hamas also released a statement that the 2 terrorists were from Hamas, and identified the two attackers as Mohammed Herbawi and Shadi Zghayer.
So far, Israeli forensic experts have determined that the dead bodies are not in fact the Fatah ones, Arafat and Lawani.
Therefore, Israel security services now know for a fact that Arafat and Lawani are on their way to commit a terror attack; we have their videotaped confessions, we know their names, what they look like...they are now priority targets for the IDF (and will hopefully be killed in the very near future by IDF forces before they carry out their attack).
WND ever called the families of both Arafat and Lawani and found out that both of them, in their 20s, left their homes and have not been heard from all week.
May they win their coveted Darwin award soon and may the Fatah PR department keep up their excellent work.
