Tyler Durden's picture

When it comes to political assassinations, 2014 is starting off with a bang, literally. Moments ago news broke that following an explosion in Prague, the Palestinian ambassador to the Czech Republic has just been killed.

Firefighters search an area after an explosion in Prague January 1, 2014. The Palestinian ambassador to Czech Republic Jamal al-Jamal has died after an explosion at his residence in Prague on Wednesday, according to Czech police.

From AP:

Ambassador Jamel al-Jamal was in his apartment with his family at the time of the explosion on Wednesday, according to Palestinian Embassy spokesman Nabil El-Fahel. Al-Jamal was seriously injured and rushed to a hospital, where he died, according to police spokeswoman Andrea Zoulova.


The Palestinian Foreign Ministry said the blast occurred when the 56-year-old diplomat was moving an old office safe box. It was not immediately clear how the explosives got there, and the ministry said the blast was being investigated.


Prague rescue service spokeswoman Jirina Ernestova said al-Jamal was placed in a medically induced coma when he arrived at Prague Military Hospital.


She said a 52-year old woman was taken to a different hospital in Prague after suffering from shock.


The ambassador's apartment is in Prague's Suchdol neighborhood.

Once we see any news on who the alleged perpertrators are, we will update this post.

No doubt NSA knew about it but decided not to stop it.  Like Boston.  Keep up the good work, guys.

I doubt if the Czechs will do anything, but I hope Russia gives a heaping dose of payback to the sponsors of its bombers.

Someone needs to check with the NYT's on this, they claim they have reporters everywhere. Hell, now they're saying they had one, on the ground, speaking with the attackers in Benghazi...during the attack.

But "what does it matter now!"

Ambassador John Christopher Stevens was assassinated by the US government because he supported Palestinian statehood.

Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) negotiators condemn killing of US ambassador

"Palestinian negotiators on Thursday remembered US ambassador Christopher Stevens as fair-minded and described his death in Libya as a major loss for American foreign policy."

"'It's just tragic,' said Hanan Ashrawi, a PLO leader and veteran negotiator with Israel. 'It's very sad. I thought he was a person who was not just intelligent but also caring.'"

"As a mediator, the Arabic-speaking envoy 'understood the Palestinian situation well. He was very understanding and he listened; he didn't repeat talking points,' Ashrawi said in an interview."

"He could have made a big difference in people's lives and, really, to America's standing and credibility. His loss is a loss not only to US foreign policy but also to its standing with other states."

"'He was a really close friend of the family, and I am really shocked,' [Senior PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat] told Ma'an. 'He was murdered in a very ugly act of terror, and it's so despicable.'"

"'Such a good man, such a great loss. His heart was in the peace process, and I'm sure his heart was also in the building of Libya,' Erekat said."

If he was "assassinated by the US government" it was done with the knowledge & assent of Obama & Hillary AND was carried out by Ansar al Sharia.

So do you have some larger point about Obama & Hillary & Ansar al Sharia not approving of a Palestinian state you want to make?

He wasn't an Archduke, by any chance?

nmewn's picture


No, I don't think so and the people who killed him weren't atheists or anarchists At the end of the day it was F&F 2.0, Middle East style I believe.

The real question is...where was the Commander in Chief and what was he doing during that long night.

He got killed because he was involved in the equivalent of "Fast & Furious" but with shoulder launched missiles.

How does Palestine have an Embassy when they don't have a state?

kralizec's picture

There you go again, being a little stickler!  Details, details!  ;)

MSimon's picture

Or Hamas, or Hezbollah, or possibly even the PLO. The list of suspects is endless.


A Palestinian State is in no one's interest. Jordan wouldn't like it. Egypt wouldn't like it.The Saudis wouldn't like it.


Who might like it? Israel. It is easier to go to war with an official State than a group of "refugees". And then there is Iran.


I see a world war in our future.

Palestinians and explosives...perhaps not all of them are experts! 

RacerX's picture

Sounds like he may have blown up his own bomb-making materials?

ATM's picture

Exactly. Explosives stored in his safe as diplomatic corespondence and protected for search.

In any case it is hard not to tick the "good news" box on this story.

I call bullshit.

For what purpose in the Czech Republic? Blow up the Israeli Embassy.

What purpose? Safe keeping of course.

rbg81's picture

You call Bullshit?  Really?  Are you denying that the PA supports, and indeed has conducted, terrorism?  Or that a safe would be the logical place to hide bomb making materials?   I think this guy just got careless.

Occam's razor:  the simplest explanation is typically the right one.  Or do your safes regularly explode?

You fucking septics just love the shit your gov sells you don't you!  LOL!  Nothing will ever change.

Are you denying that Israel supports, and indeed has conducted, terrorism?

"Occam's razor: the simplest explanation is typically the right one." (Not that I agree with this idiotic "principle". In reality, the simplest explanation is typically just that.)

MeelionDollerBogus's picture

I will 100% deny it. All acts of Palestinian force are 100% self-defense and precisely what you and other Americans claim YOU WOULD DO to defend YOUR LAND, LIFE, FAMILY in the coming FEMA disasters and military police attacks ON YOU.

100% identical.

The simplest explanation is logical: ISRAEL MURDERS PALESTINIANS EVERY DAY and did this crime too. Mossad routinely plants explosives and drops bombs and murders unarmed people. Routinely.

It's absurd beyond insane to assume this AMBASSADOR HAD A BOMB. It's routine & normal for MOSSAD TO MURDER USING A BOMB.

Sounds like you cut your own balls off with Occam's Razor - better learn how to use it right.

MSimon's picture

The Palestinians murder Palestinians every day. They especially like hanging gays in the town square.


There are no clean hands when it comes to power.

MeelionDollerBogus's picture

And Americans kill Americans every day too but Americans typically DO NOT KILL their OWN AMBASSADORS while under occupation of foreign invaders. To overlook the foreign invaders is narcissistic (depending on who you are), racist or ignorant.

Who knows? Maybe the PA was planning to whack an Israeli or Czech businessman or something? Or bomb Israeli athletes on their way to the Sochi Olympics by train? Or whack a group of Israeli tourists touring Prague? There are innumerable possibilities.

Those all dovetail nicely within the persecution playbook.

it looks doubtful that the czech republic would be along the path for a train trip from israel to sochi.

Actually, that's an interesting thought ....

Please Snowden release the 911 information.  Saudis have third biggest air-force. China forced to buy Russian aircraft carrier.  Enough is enough.  These clowns meddling in Georgia pushed edge of thermo nuclear war. Now the economic hit men getting exposed for the power mongers they are.

'Snowden' is a psyop. Don't expect 'him' to release anything at all that 'they' don't want you to know about.

Just sayin'....

Happy New Year to you, too, Sean. We can but try.

[edit] I just noticed his handle...LOL...he's certainly well on the highway to where he's going.

wow, look at all the downvotes. really? 


obviously snowden is some kind of psy-op/shill. putin is probably no white knight, either.

Zero Point's picture

Nah, Putin can lift cars, and rescues baby kittens from trees.

The internet told me so.

CrazyCooter's picture

Not that I buy into this particular line, but ...

Curiously, I can't find the INTJ/Putin meme I have seen before, so maybe someone else can find/link it. It had all his "emotions" with the same face; pretty funny. But a picture and 1000 words ...

If Snowden has the 911 information, that explains why he quickly went from a traitor who must be brought to justice at all costs to "some computer hack" who the U.S. government isn't going to waste a lot of time and energy on.

Probably another Bandar Special.  Strengthening Saudi-Israeli ties.

If there is a way to have a world war with a largely nuclear armed world, these guys are going to find it.
