IDF soldiers arrested two Palestinians at the Bir Zayit checkpoint on Thursday night after finding two explosive devices in their car during a routine check. The explosives, which were ready for deployment, were detonated safely by army sappers. The two suspects were transferred to police for questioning.They know the soldiers are there. They know the road runs into a security checkpoint. Yet they still get arrested, still carry their bombs, still pray for their 72 virgins. These are things you need to take into account when you formulate your position on the fateful question of what does a decent society have to do to protect itself from a barbarian onslaught.
A good Sabbath to all.
