Bus Bombings in Southern Israel Kill 11

JERUSALEM - Two buses exploded almost simultaneously in southern Israel on Tuesday, killing at least 11 people and wounding more than 20 in the first major Palestinian attack inside Israel in nearly six months, rescue officials said.

Sorry to bring the news of new murders.
Time is long past for Arafat to assume room temperature.
May God comfort those who mourn and heal the injured...
"Terrorism did not start on September 11, 2001. It had been festering for many years.
And the world had created a response to it that allowed it to succeed. The attack on the Israeli team at the Munich Olympics was in 1972. And the pattern had already begun.
The three surviving terrorists were arrested and within two months released by the German government.
Action like this became the rule, not the exception. Terrorists came to learn they could attack and often not face consequences.
In 1985, terrorists attacked the Achille Lauro and murdered an American citizen who was in a wheelchair, Leon Klinghoffer.
They marked him for murder solely because he was Jewish.
Some of those terrorists were released and some of the remaining terrorists allowed to escape by the Italian government because of fear of reprisals.
So terrorists learned they could intimidate the world community and too often the response, particularly in Europe, was "accommodation, appeasement and compromise."
And worse the terrorists also learned that their cause would be taken more seriously, almost in direct proportion to the barbarity of the attack.
Terrorist acts became a ticket to the international bargaining table.
How else to explain Yasser Arafat winning the Nobel Peace Prize when he was supporting a terrorist plague in the Middle East that undermined any chance of peace?"
It will be interesting to see how Sharon reacts to this one. I hope they finally take out Arafat.
Maybe they can use some of those non-lethal weapons they've been developing.
It is time to destroy the jihadists wherever they are to be found. Send them to their "Allah".
14 dead I just heard..The reporter said" a bloody box of cookies on the street and book bag of a child "..I hate these terrorists.

I had gotten used to the quiet coming from Israel... what a rude awakening.
Sharon: We must respond forcefully to this terrorist attack! The Gaza withdrawal will be implemented immediately!
ISLAM IS LOVE
Islam is a faith that brings comfort to a billion people around the world. It's a faith that has made brothers and sisters of every
race. It's a faith based upon love, not hate.

President Bush's Roundtable with Muslim Leaders -
"All Americans must recognize that the face of terror is not the true faith -- face of Islam. Islam is a faith that brings comfort to a

ISLAMIC NATIONS DESERVE FREEDOM
The peoples of the Islamic nations want and deserve the same freedoms and opportunities as people in every nation. And their
governments should listen to their hopes.

A WAR AGAINST EVIL
All of us here today understand this: We do not fight Islam, we fight against evil.
- President Bush, November 6, 2001
NOT AT WAR AGAINST ISLAM
Because this great nation of many religions understands, our war is not against Islam, or against faith practiced by the Muslim
- President Bush, January 5, 2002
ISLAM IS OF CHARITY
The Islam that we know is a faith devoted to the worship of one God, as revealed through The Holy Quran. It teaches the value and
the importance of charity, mercy, and peace.
- President Bush, November 15, 2001
There are thousands of Muslims who proudly call themselves Americans, and they know what I know -- that the Muslim faith is based
upon peace and love and compassion.

TERRORISTS HIJACKING ISLAM
The terrorists are traitors to their own faith, trying, in effect, to hijack Islam itself. The enemy of America is not our many Muslim
friends; it is not our many Arab friends.
- President Bush, September 20, 2001
WAR ON TERROR, NOT MUSLIMS
I've made it clear, Madam President, that the war against terrorism is not a war against Muslims, nor is it a war against Arabs. It's a
war against evil people who conduct crimes against innocent people.
- President Bush, September 19, 2001
ISLAM IS PEACE
The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don't represent
peace. They represent evil and war.

If you'd like to be on or off this middle east/political ping list, please FR mail me.
Sounds about right to me, too, FC.
I'm waiting to hear that a Cabinet Meeeting is being convened, as we both know what will be discussed.
Prayers for the families. May God comfort them all and punish the guilty.
But I was told all this get tough on terrorism is what made the bombers stop. Guess that didn't work.
President Bush, September 28, 2001
This is the same President that told us Mexico was our good friend too.
Hamas has claimed responsibility.
According to Radio news (Sweden) the killers came from the Hebron area - an area where the Safety barrier isn't finished
(actually the last was also from the radio news, although they didn't call it a safety barrier).
Yesterday border guards stopped a suicide bomber so it looks like Hamas' bomb factories are up and running again.
Yes it did stop it SIGNIFICANTLY!! Of course nothing is ever 100 percent full proof, however from what WAS once a homicide bombing almost daily and for sure weekly, it has now been brought down to once in every few months and that is a BIG difference and its ONLY because of the IDF and shin bet actions against these terrorists as well as the building of the anti terror security fence.
Oh and on the latter, the fence isnt 100 percent completed yet and in fact in the south, where the terrorists came through to attack the other day, there was no fence up yet..........all that is due to the outside as well as inside Israeli courts acting stupid (as usual) and halting the construction..................no matter, eventfully I believe it will be finished and well what is a FACT of now a over 70 percent REDUCTION this year of terrorist violence against Israel will only get even higher when the anti terrorist security fence is completed!!
P.S. this is my first post here Long time reader, though never posted till now. This comment by Joe Hadenuf just caught my eye and well I guess yall will be hearing more from me in the coming future.
