Israel Uncovers Hamas Plot To Car-Bomb Sharon

From The New York Post a story that would have had major repercussions had the plot have taken place

March 3, 2003 -- JERUSALEM - Hamas terrorists planned to assassinate Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon last month by planting a car bomb in his motorcade, Israeli officials said yesterday.
Officials said they got wind of the plot after nabbing a Palestinian suspect in Bethlehem in early February.

A month earlier, Israeli agents foiled a plot concocted by the Palestinian terror group The Popular Front. Suspects in that case admitted they planned to kill Sharon, as well as a former mayor of Jerusalem, Ehud Olmert.[more]
