Bomb scare at Israeli Embassy in San Jose

August 11th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) An anonymous caller alerted authorities to an alleged explosive device at the Israeli Embassy in Paseo Colón Friday morning.

 

Authorities responded immediately to the scene, but were unable to locate any bomb or explosive device.

 

Embassy personnel were allowed to go back to work after authorities gave the all clear.

 

The recent escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the Gaza Strip has spawned small-scale protests and demonstrations in Costa Rica’s capital city in recent weeks against what some describe as heavy-handedness on the part of Israel and a significant civilian death toll approaching 2,000 in Gaza.

 

Costa Rica’s government has also been critical of recent Israeli operations in Gaza.

 

Authorities have not yet identified any suspects in Friday’s bomb threat, but have reason to take such threats seriously.  In 1992, a suicide bombing attack on the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina, killed 29 civilians and injured 242.

    FALSE FLAG called in by one of them. Trying to act like the victims as usual as they plow down other races and religious groups. I will never let anyone know that I carry some German jewish blood after what is happening before our very eyes in a country where Christians and Muslims have lived in peace for centuries. How dare they try to ethnically cleanse Israel for themselves. I am ashamed. When liberal jews over there protest the bombings the right wing jews harass them and have them arrested. Not exactly a democracy eh?

    You want a war … fine, have your war! But it galls me that they want to take their battle to other countries; keep it within your territory and leave the rest of the world alone–we have their own problems thank you very much.
