Bush Blames Palestinian Authorities (for Gaza bombing of American diplomatic convoy)

Bush Blames Palestinian Authorities


Associated Press

President Bush blamed Palestinian authorities Wednesday for the deaths of Americans in an attack in Gaza, saying their failure to create terrorist-fighting security forces "continues to cost lives."

"Palestinian authorities should have acted long ago to fight terror in all its forms," the president said in a written statement as he flew to California for an overnight visit en route to Asia.

Bush said he condemned the attack in the strongest terms and that the United States was working with authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Putting the blame squarely on the Palestinian leadership, Bush said, "The failure to create effective Palestinian security forces dedicated to fighting terror continues to cost lives. There must be an empowered prime minister who contols all Palestinian forces - reforms that continue to be blocked by Yasser Arafat."

"The failure to undertake these reforms and dismantle the terrorist organizations constitutes the greatest obstacle to achieving the Palestinian people's dream of statehood," Bush said.

He said the Americans who were attacked were in Gaza to help build a better future for Palestinians.

"The U.S. embassy officials traveling in Gaza were there to interview young Palestinian candidates seeking Fulbright scholarships to study in the United States," Bush said. "This is another example of how the terrorists are enemies of progress and opportunity for the Palestinian people."

Bush was notified of the attack in a telephone call by National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice before he left the White House.

An FBI legal attache is investigating the bombing, which killed three Americans. It was the first attack on a U.S. target in three years of Israeli-Palestinian fighting.

The FBI's legal attache from Tel Aviv went to the bombing site and is working with Palestinian and Israeli authorities, said FBI spokesman Ed Cogswell in Washington.

The FBI has not yet determined yet whether more agents will be sent, but in the past it has taken a major role in overseas violence in which Americans are killed.

The bomb exploded under a U.S. diplomatic convoy, ripping apart an armored van in an unprecedented attack on an official U.S. target. There was no claim of responsibility for the bombing.

While targeting Israeli soldiers and civilians for years, groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad repeatedly insist they do not target U.S. officials - apparently to avoid a harsh retribution from the Americans and the anger of Palestinian officials trying to work with Washington.

The bombing, which also wounded a fourth American, will likely intensify U.S. pressure on the Palestinian Authority to take action against militant groups. Arafat, whom Bush has tried to sideline in favor of other leaders, condemned the attack as an "awful crime." Arafat said he ordered an investigation.

The explosion, detonated by a remote-controlled explosive device, occurred as the second vehicle of a three-car convoy had just cleared a checkpoint and entered Gaza, said State Department spokeswoman Brooke Summers.

The three persons who died were security personnel accompanying diplomats from the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, who were heading to interview Palestinian candidates for Fulbright scholarships, she said.

The U.S. Embassy advised U.S. citizens to leave the Gaza Strip after the attack.

State Department officials said they were asking the Israeli government to help evacuate any American wishing to leave the Gaza Strip. The department also is urging all American citizens on the West Bank to take all available precautions against possible attacks.

He can't have it both ways. It is his administration's policy that enables the Palestinian leadership to block the reforms because they opposed the removal of Yasser Arafat. If Arafat is responsible, the U.S. needs to kill him.

Laura Bush Slams Attack in AP Interview

By MICHELLE FAUL
Associated Press Writer

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP)--First Lady Laura Bush condemned an attack on an American convoy Wednesday in the Gaza Strip, saying the U.S. diplomats were working to ``create a civilized world.''

A remote-controlled bomb exploded under the diplomatic convoy, ripping apart an armored van and killing three Americans in an unprecedented deadly attack on an official U.S. target.

``My heart goes out to the families of those who were killed in this targeted attack of the convoy,'' Mrs. Bush told The Associated Press on Wednesday, urging people to ``come to terms with what we need for a civilized society--and that is that we do not have terrorism.''

Mrs. Bush joined other first ladies of the Americas for a conference on child poverty in the Dominican Republic. She said terrorism threatened progress being made to create a stable world for children.

More than 20 first ladies were meeting in the Spanish-speaking nation to discuss encroaching poverty and its debilitating effect on children. When asked why the United States was spending more than $80 billion in Iraq instead of channeling the money to needy children, Mrs. Bush said a secure Iraq was in the world's best interest.

Rebuilding Iraq will ``help all the world,'' Mrs. Bush said in the brief AP interview. ``It is in the United States' best interest to have a free and prosperous Iraq.''

the people of the Fulbright scholarship

My guess is that they were from the Langley, VA branch of the Fulbright Foundation, and their scholarship interviews touch on many subjects of interest to that division.

It's too bad that Hamas etc denied responsibility. It would have been a rare instance of clarity in the media had they done so. Now 'questions' will remain as to who is responsible.

FWIW, Debka says that the "Popular Resistance Committee" (I had to google them) claimed responsibility.

As Jonah Goldberg on NRO points out, the US Govt seems to have selective outrage when Americans are killed in the Middle East. Jewish-Americans visiting or studying in Israel who are killed by homicide bombers are never identified as Americans, nor does the US Govt cry out in alarm. I guess if you're a Jewish-American in Jerusalem just studying or having a snack at the university cafeteria, well, you assume the risk.

From IslamOnline.net:

Palestinian Factions Disclaim Gaza Blast

"Islamic Jihad always keen not to turn the Palestinian resistance against foreign targets," said Al-Batsh

By Mohamed Yaseen, IOL Correspondent

GAZA, October 15 (IslamOnline.net) – Palestinian factions immediately disclaimed responsibility for the road-side bombing attack on a U.S. diplomatic convoy that left at least three Americans dead in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, October 15.

Sheikh Adnan Asfour of the movement Hamas said the group's "unwavering position is against broadening the cycle of conflict or taking it outside the Palestinian territories.

"Resistance well understands that its main enemy is the one that had occupied Palestinian territories and killed Palestinians," he told IslamOnline.net.

Asfour said Palestinian attacks are meant to end Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and create the long-coveted Palestinian state with the holy city of Al-Quds as its capital.

But he accused the U.S. of being biased towards Israel, citing Washington's use of its veto power to kill a U.N. Security Council draft condemning Israel for the construction of its separation wall, which snakes through the Palestinian territories in the West Bank.

But the leading Hamas leader did not rule out the attack against the American convoy might have been "sparked up by the Washington's action in the world body".

The move was the second by Washington in less than one month, after it had vetoed an Arab-driven resolution condemning Israel for its decision to expel Palestinian President Yasser Arafat last month.

No Interests

For its part, the Islamic Jihad resistance movement said it had no interests to carry out the bombing attack against the American convoy.

"The group is always keen not to switch the Palestinian resistance against foreign targets," said the group's leading figure Khaled Al-Batsh.

Speaking to IOL, he set it as plain that "our main enemy is the one who had usurped our land and killed our children."

The Jihad leader pointed a finger of accusation at the Israeli occupation forces "which might have planted the landmine which caused the blast during their daily incursions in the Gaza Strip".

Nine Palestinians were killed, including two children and two teenagers, and about 80 injured during an earlier Israeli operation in Rafah in southern Gaza Strip that began on Thursday, October 9.

Israeli occupation forces also Pushed some 40 tanks and bulldozers backed by helicopter gunships in a new incursion into Rafah refugee camp on Tuesday.

"Although we realize that the Israeli aggressions are blessed by the U.S., we are against the Wednesday bombing," asserted Khedr Habib, another Jihad figure.

"The explosion might have been meant to target an Israeli security team, and if the attackers had known the vehicle carried Americans, they might have changed their minds," he said.

Habib said his group is not of the opinion to target Americans, despite the anti-American sentiments sprouting up among Palestinians jeering at its support for Israel.

Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigares, the armed wing of Fatah movement, also rejected the attack in a statement carried by al-Jazeera.

"The U.S. embassy officials traveling in Gaza were there to interview young Palestinian candidates seeking Fulbright scholarships to study in the United States"

“The demand side for terrorists must be considered as well as the supply side. Terrorist organizations may prefer highly educated individuals over less educated ones, even for homicide suicide bomb attacks. In addition, educated, middle or upper class individuals are better suited to carry out acts of international terrorism than are impoverished illiterates because the terrorists must fit into a foreign environment to be successful. This consideration suggests that terrorists who threaten economically developed countries will disproportionately be drawn from the ranks of the relatively well off and highly educated.

I think a bombing is much too good for that f**K (I reserve that type of language for only the most severe instances) about four weeks in a tent in the middle of a desert should do....I'm sure we still have someone in the CIA that knows a thing or two about torture.....

"Explosion Near U.S. Convoy in Gaza Kills Three Americans"

"Bush Blames Palestinian Authorities" (for Gaza bombing of American diplomatic convoy)

"Yadda Yadda Yadda, blame, blame, blame, outrage, outrage, outrage"... Same old song and dance!

Ah yes, now that Americans have been blown to bits by the Islamonazis in Israel, Bush must demand America also follow the Powell Doctrine and:

"Exercise Restraint"

Oh I am sorry, that advice ONLY applies to Israel, when their people get blown into bite sized pieces... never mind.

Boy am I sick of this ring around the rosy!

When are the Bush administration and America going to wake up and realize that we are at war with people who want us all converted, dead or enslaved to Islamic masters, subjugated under Islamic law!

The only way this is ever going to get dealt with and peace will take root in the Middle East and the rest of the world is when genuine all-out war against these terrorists is waged and they are killed. Until then this is just like the phony "War on Drugs":

Money down the drain, lots of people hurt and dead with NOTHING to show for all of our efforts.

WWIII has begun, thousands of Americans, Isralies and citizens from nations throughout the world have been and are being killed on a daily basis and America had better get with the program and fight to win, or we are going to lose.

Wow, you're right. That's wierd. I thought for sure I'd refreshed the browse page I have open many times today, but until a few minutes ago it still had stories like "Cubs 3, Marlins 8, Final score (Going to Game 7) ~~ LIVE THREAD" near the top of the "Breaking News" sidebar. It's probably me rather than the software. Too many window open.

I just like the "unbiased" title in the Yahoo version of this story.

"Bush blames Palestinians for Gaza deaths"

It isn't until you click on the link (which the story is the same as this one. From the AP) does it say that its the Palestinian Authorities that Bush is condemning.
