Dear God, will this ever end? Prayers for the victims, and by that I mean, the Israeli's.

Loud explosion reported in central Jerusalem

By Haaretz Service and Agencies

A loud explosion was reported on Blafour Street in central Jerusalem, extremely close to the prime minister's official residence, at a little before 9 A.M. Thursday.

Army Radio reported that the explosion took place on a bus, apparently by a suicide bomber.

Large numbers of ambulances were reported at the scene. At least three people were in critical condition.

It's terrible that these days one should feel relief that there are "at least 3" casualties - but at least apparently it wasn't a mega-attack.

Tens of casualties. Explosion in Bus. Listening to Israel Radio. Suicide Bomber. Emergency official on phone, at site of terrorist attack. Corner of the street, right next to PM building. He is trying to look at it right now. Ambulances are right now getting to scene.

First reports: large number of casualties. Dozens injured.

Personal note: I was on that street a week and a half ago.

And we will continue to say they deserve a state, continue to give them millions of dollars and say it is in Israel's interest for a PLO terrorist state to come about.

New Report: Bus is in terrible condition. Devestating sights. Reporter on Israeli Radio. Roof of the Bus has torn apart.

Near his building, no damage to the building in early reports. I think it was a little ways from it. Not sure if he was there at the time.

Don't get carried away folks, the leaders of the Palestinians who help to set up these attacks can't be called terrorists. I know you meant well, but fearless leader has spoken. All hail fearless leader.

Didn't somebody at one time say something like, "No matter where they are, we will seek out and eliminate terrorists." Perhaps my memory fails me... ;-)

I think it wasn't a building, but either a bus or outside a bus where people congragated.

This is near Sharon's residence - let's hope the old warrior brings down the wrath of God on these bastards.

CNN: There are "a number of dead," no exact numbers as of yet. You can hear sounds of ambulances in the city. The explosion "tore apart the bus."

It is a bus, the front is blown off. There are three Christians on that bus that I know of from the Christian Embassy. Two of them are Americans. One is ok, one is in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. The status of the third is unknown, that is very bad.

People don't be fooled by media saying the "quiet" has been broken. There have been at least 20 suicide terrorists in the last few weeks that have been intercepted.

New report: Bus was very crowded at the time of the bombing. Many injured and numerous dead. Male suicide terrorist who blew up, it seems, in the back or center of the bus.

It will be tricky right now, because as this was happening, Israel was releasing around 450 Arab terrorists and going about a prisoner exchange with Hizbullah. NOt sure what will happen to that.

There will most likely be some sort of Israel response, starting with a closure on Arab areas in the territories, but I think the US will consult Israel and tell it to restrain itself due to its moves right now to try to get the roadmap to "peace" back on track.

As you know, the US does not support Israel targeting terrorists nor does it support going after Arafat.

But if Israel is to act militarily, it will probably be directed at terrorist infrastructure in Judea Samaria and maybe terrorist HQ's in Gaza.

Magen David Adom rescue service said that at least eight people were in critical condition.

5 murdered right now

8 fighting for their lives

30 injured

at least

Bus was number 19 that left the Haddasa Hospital in Jerusalem.

Ironically, many of those who entered the bus on that stop, are now returning to that same stop probably injured.

Update from freeper on site. One embassy person hurt, one in shock third ok. Windows all blown out, freeper (my wife) can only see front of bus. Whole area flagged off a half a block from bus. Roof is raised up in front of bus, looks like the murderer was in front of the bus when he went off. She says the bus is not as bad as most she has seen, bomb was smaller than usual.

As you know, the US does not support Israel targeting terrorists nor does it support going after Arafat.

The US does not have buses occupied with civilians being blown up either.

Enough of this madness, release the hounds.
