Palestine Ambassador To Prague Killed In Bomb Explosion

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.

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.

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?

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.

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 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.

Well done, and it's a good point.

But as an American, you must understand: I deeply resent this fiasco being made into my problem. At this point I am less and less interested in "getting to the bottom of it" to find out the real bad guy / good guy.

It's none of my business and I'd appreciate being left out of it. I'd appreciate if AIPAC stopped lobbying my government to destroy my Bill of Rights.

I find that a foreign power lobbying my government to control my Army and my tax money to be deeply offensive. Do you understand? There may be a "right answer" for good guy/bad guy. But I would appreciate that you leave me the fuck alone.

The good/bad isn't too difficult. Under cover of a diverse range of spurious legal, ethnic and religious pretexts, the Israelis have taken most of the Palestinians' land by force. The Palestinians want their land back. 

If they try using peaceful methods, Israel ignores them and steals more of their land.

If they try using violent methods, Israel slaughters them, calls them terrorists, and steals more of their land.

Why doesn't Israel just chuck all the Palestinians out and take all the land? Why do this ever soo painfully slow piecemeal crap they have been doing for over 40 years? If I were running the show in Israel, all the Palestinians would be deported to Somalia as fast as logistically possible, all the land of historic Palestine would be annexed, and that would be that. Over and done with.  And yes, the Palestinians and their many global supporters would cry and scream, but they would eventually get over it, and Israel would be able to maintain peace with its neighbors, secured by its nuclear arsenal, and massive conventional firepower.

Why in hell does a Faux state like Palestine have ambassadors anywhere, especially as far afield as Prague?? Something isn't right here. Maybe the "ambassador" was actually an amateur, and prematurely detonated his own bomb.

Are you nuts? Britian stole the nation of Palestine, which has existed all the way back to the Roman Empire, and pretends it is called "Israel". There is no nation of Palestine.

There was no theft here. Nations form and disintegrate all the time, typically due to war. Less so these days because the US acts as a policeman, but that will cease soon enough. Palestinians aren't any more special than, say, Armenians.

Husseini was the first to advocate for a "Palestinian Arab people" and that was in 1920 not the time of the Romans. Muslims were a religious minority there even then. Palestine was until that time a common term for Terra Sancta, a purely Jewish and Christian concept. The British created "Palestine." Most moslems protested it; they were  aligned with Damascus and were Syrians. It was Haj Amin al-Husseini, a Turkish soldier in WWI and a Syrian Passport Holder, who became the first to claim Arabs had a historical right to this land. He was aligned with Hitler in WWII and may have been the principal author of the concentration camp scheme adopted by Hitler. He also raised several Muslim Arab Nazi SS divisions that fought for Germany in the Balkans. He was a close personal friend of Hitler.

the nation of Palestine, which has existed all the way back to the Roman Empire


Who was the first president of this nation?

What were the denominations of its coins?

What were the lyrics to its national anthem?

What colors were on its flag?

Where was its seat of government / parliment?

What kinds of postage stamps did it use?

Why no mention of this naton in any books before late 1970s?

Why did the Ottoman empire rather that "Palestine" conduct its first census?

None of those things make a country. It had its people, its culture, its borders & recognized by the mightiest empire of the era.
If that's not good enough for you then what you have isn't a country either - merely stolen land.

Israel had nothing, was nothing, dusty words in old books & scrolls, a forgotten land (not this land we speak of), a small patch forgotten, left behind.

Once you leave you do not ever have the power by morality or law to take land (and more land on top) from others. it's theirs.

These are foreign invaders.

There is no Israel. To pretend it is actually is very disrespectful to the original Israel that did exist once long ago.

Correct, a country makes those things.


Of course, Isael did not just "leave" and the jews never left. Dusty, yes, but abandonded, hardly. They and the Christians outnumbered Arab immigrants eight to one.


You are very selective in whose history you wish to erase. Israel exists, Palestine never did. Deal with it.

many Jews definitely left, the majority.
Their exit ended old Israel and there has never been another one.
The current "Israel" is just an occupier fortress name on the proper nation of Palestine.


Palestine existed longer than Israel and is a real nation today. 1948's removal of the name to annex it by the British for a fake-jewish nation did not erase Palestine.

It only served to indoctrinate fucktards.

You, apparently, have selective historical amnesia & chose the path of fucktardery.

Palestine. Right there on the map.

Seriously, how can a country that does not exist have an ambassador to the check republic? something more to this story, I think.


As for "Palestine" give it back to Jordan, jiggle some borders to accomdate, problem solved.

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.
