If it turns out that Jamal al-Jamal died in an accidental explosion, the word is still out on whether he gets any virgins. But when you’re a member of the Fatah terrorist group and you’re blown up in an explosion, it’s hard to believe that you had nothing to do with it.
The Palestinian ambassador to the Czech Republic was killed in an explosion when he tried to get into a safe which had been sealed for 30 years, the Palestinian foreign minister said.
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki told The Associated Press the safe was recently moved from an old embassy building and had not been opened in 30 years.
“The ambassador decided to open it. After he opened it, apparently something happened inside [the safe] and went off,” Malki told The AP.
Reuters, quoting a Czech government source, said the explosion was probably caused by a security device on the safe.
Some safes are fitted with mechanisms to destroy secret documents in the event they are tampered with.
The AP said it was unclear where the safe had been three decades ago, during the Cold War, or how the foreign minister could be sure it was sealed.
There’s all sorts of fun questions to be asked about that such as why the PA’s politicians back in the West Bank of Israel seem to know more about what happened than the local Czech authorities do and why the Czech authorities don’t seem to want to discuss it, also why a supposed ambassador was trying to break into a safe and whose safe was it.
Jamal al-Jamal, the terrorist so Jamaly that they named him that twice, was working the Eastern European beat back in the Cold War days. He was born in Lebanon, like so many Palestinian Arabs who claim to be from Israel, but actually come from other countries entirely.
Fatah members often die in accidental explosions, but it’s because they’ve been playing with bombs. It’s hard to believe that Jamal al-Jamal would be the exception that proves the terrorist rule.
