I shouldn't tempt providence but as it moves towards midnight the deadline of Ten Pound Challenge III looks set to pass without a winner. There were some valiant attempts though. A racist troll and former blogger said that he knew of one case of an ambulance being used in an armed attack on Israel. The challenge was to find two, out of the "numerous examples", that Shuli Davidovich (of the Israeli embassy in London) claimed there were. A guy called James offered to find two examples of Israeli soldiers firing on ambulances. He said he would accept a fiver as examples of this are easier to find. The readers' editor of The Guardian. said that he knew of no such examples. By far the best entry was from Father Ted who linked to "numerous examples" of Israel's use of Palestinian ambulances to attack Palestinians. But that still wasn;t the challenge. Also he wouldn't tell me his diocese. So what can you do? I would have paid him the tenner as well...honest.
