Female suicide bomber nabbed at Erez

by Mark5019 / June 22, 2005 6:18 AM PDT

The Shin Bet and Israel Defense Forces foiled a suicide bombing yesterday by apprehending a Palestinian woman who tried to enter Israel with explosives.

The woman, 21, was stopped at the Erez border crossing in the north of the Gaza Strip with close to 10 kilograms of explosives in her underwear.

what i would have done was attache a detonator to the explosives she was carring, put her in open fiels and poof set her off.
she wont try that again

Realizing she had been discovered, Al-Biss apparently tried to blow herself up, but failed to detonate the bomb.

that she could keep her underwear on

close to 10 kilograms of explosives in her underwear.

10 kg = 22 lbs

Maybe she was using both hands to keep her underwear up and couldn't hit the button.

The rest of the story is even sadder

Go to http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032619/ and click on the javascript video link (in the middle of the list on the left) under "From patient to suicide bomber." She'd apparently been severely injured in an accident, had been receiving treatment (for which her family was very grateful), but was still being teased as "ugly" by classmates, so she became suicidal first, and was convinced to "become a martyr" by some unscrupulous recruiter.

Sad and Unfortunate

I watched the video and immediately thought of Columbine.
The pressure in these times to be attractive,thin,popular and "in" is tremendous.
Distraught because her fiancee left her,she felt "ugly".Sad thing is,she wasn't ugly at all.
