5 September 1999, Jerusalem In most parts of the world, the switch away from

Daylight Savings Time proceeds smoothly. But the time change raised havoc with

Palestinian terrorists this year.

Israel insisted on a premature switch from Daylight Savings Time to Standard

Time to accommodate a week of pre-sunrise prayers. Palestinians refused to live

on “Zionist Time.” Two weeks of scheduling havoc ensued. Nobody knew the

“correct” time.

At precisely 5:30pm on Sunday, two coordinated car bombs exploded in different

cities, killing three terrorists who were transporting the bombs. It was

initially believed that the devices had been detonated prematurely by klutzy

amateurs. A closer look revealed the truth behind the explosions.

The bombs had been prepared in a Palestine-controlled area, and set to detonate

on Daylight Savings Time. But the confused drivers had already switched to

Standard Time. When they picked up the bombs, they neglected to ask whose watch

was used to set the timing mechanism. As a result, the cars were still en-route

when the explosives detonated, delivering the terrorists to their untimely

demises.
