Grandmother of 15 murdered by a Palestinian genocide bomber
Sa'ada Aharon, 71 Grandmother of 15 Murdered by a Palestinian terrorist
On October 10, 2002, Sa'ada Aharon, 71, of Ramat Gan was killed and about 30 people were wounded when a suicide bomber blew himself up while trying to board Dan bus No. 87 across from Bar-Ilan University on the Geha highway (Route 4).

When I went to college at Bar-Ilan University, I used to take this bus everyday. I know the exact place where the Palestinian murderer blew up - it's near the "Coca-Cola" junction, named for a Coke factory from nearby. Many Israelis do not have any choice but the bus to commute or to go to a doctor's appointment (like poor Sa'ada). The Palestinian Islamic Jihad couldn't care less of course.

"Genocide bomber"? That doesn't really make sense. Even if the bomber would have supported genocide, this act alone was not one of genocide. Murder and hate, yes.

There was a period a few bloggers were calling such terrorists from Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad who murdered people by blowing themselves up in buses: "Genocide Bombers".
This is in contrast to much of the main stream media who likes to call such murderers: "Militants".
Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other similar groups have a declared goal to destroy the State of Israel and murder millions of Israeli men, women and children. Their goal is "genocide".
I wrote to NPR once about the terminology they use and how I decided to stop supporting them for such blatant injustice to the victims:
The deliberate killing of unarmed civilians is terrorism
