Modern stuff? These are homemade bombs, crafted by a couple of guys in a basement.

Anyway, I'm not going to argue with you about the technicalities of bomb disposal, because I'm not an expert on this, and neither are you. I'll just tell you that in my experience as an Israeli, it's the standard procedure. Even if it doesn't make sense, it still has nothing to do with that particular girl.

I don't have a lot to say about your theory of events either. It's just a made-up story, based on nothing more than your ignorance (for example, you seem to think that carrying anti-Israeli stickers and Arabic texts into Israel is in any way noteworthy) and prejudices.

If he was a dickhead, then so was the whole Israeli police, for over 20 years.

I guess it's possible, but it has nothing to do with that particular girl, or whatever you imagine happened between her and the police officers.

Most of the time, they don't know who the owner is (in fact, that's usually the reason), and still shoot the fuck out of any suspicious objects.

In my personal experience, making a bomb disposal robot shoot suspicious objects is common practice in Israel. 90% of the time, those are innocent bags, left unattended by mistake.

I'm not going to guess why or how it's supposed to work, because unlike you, I don't pretend to know anything about bomb disposal. But I do know that it happens quite often.

My opinion, "I don't know", is more worthwhile than most, because it's based on facts, rather than clueless assumptions.

People are reading her blog entry, and jumping to all kinds of conclusions that have nothing to do with what is said there.

What does it have to do with me being there or my ability to travel back in time? Do you think your limited information gives you the right to make stuff up?

And please, do monitor my posts - maybe at some point, you'll understand what I was trying to say.

Um, Egypt and many of it's citizens have fairly good relations with Israel because they realise Hamas, an offshoot of the Islamic Brotherhood is Egypt's biggest terrorist threat

I wish (as an Israeli) that was true.

Truth is, only the Egyptian government feels that way. The Egyptian people, by large, hate Israel, dislike their corrupt government, and are kinda cool with the the Islamic Brotherhood.

No, but it explains why they weren't given a vote in the UN at that time.

Nothing in the comment you were replying to tries to justify massacres and expulsions. That's just you being hysterical and off-topic.

Btw, the claim that Palestinians are Jordanians/Syrians (never heard the Lebanese idea) was originally made by the Arabs. If the Arab coalition won the 1948 war, there would be no Palestine - it was meant to be a part of Jordan (and before that, Syria).

As a result, Jewish terrorists frequently attached the British authorities in Palestine. When an exhausted Britain pulled out of Palestine

That what some former Etzel members like to claim. The Arabs, who had their own axe to grind with the Brits, of course claim that they drove the British out and that the Jews were British accomplices. In this case, I'm afraid that the Arabs are right. The Jewish resistance against the British was puny in comparison to the Arabs'.

the Jewish terrorists became militias that massacred and expelled Palestinians. These groups then went on to declare the existence of the state of Israel.

And that's what happens if you get all of your information from jewwatch. Actually, what happened is that the UN approved a plan that divided the land between the Jews and Arabs, the Jews agreed, but the Arabs decided to start a war and try and get all of the land to themselves. During that war, there were massacres and attempts of ethnic cleansing on both sides, but the Israelis had the nerve to win.

This is despite the fact that it was founded on racially motivated genocide against Palestinians

When did Israel ever engage in a systematic attempt to kill all Palestinians? And if they did, don't you think they'd be done by now?

You must think that throwing around words like "genocide" and comparing Israelis to the Nazis makes your point stronger, but it just makes you look like a hysterical moron.
