Regular readers and those paying attention know my wife has been fighting cancer for quite a while now. And those following me on Twitter will be familiar with my regular visits to the oncology ward of Shaarei Tzedek hospital, where I highlight the fact that Arabs (including those identifying as palestinians) receive the same care Jewish Israelis do.

So this makes me really furious.
Israeli authorities on Wednesday morning intercepted material used to manufacture explosive devices hidden inside spools of medical material at the Erez Crossing, the Shin Bet announced in a statement.
According to the statement, the material was located during the security check at the crossing in the luggage of two sisters who are residents of the Gaza Strip. The two women had been approved to enter Israel for the purpose of receiving medical treatment for cancer, which one of the two sisters suffers from
An initial Shin Bet investigation indicated that the explosives were sent by Hamas and that the group was planning to carry out terror attacks in Israel in the near future, the statement read, adding that the material was destroyed by a sapper of the Southern District police force.
“The terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip, including Hamas, continue to exploit the humanitarian and medical assistance provided by Israel to the residents of the Gaza Strip in order to perpetrate terrorist attacks in Israel.”
Just when you think they can’t go any lower..they do.
Keep this in mind next time you read a story like this. They have themselves to blame.
