Palestinian genocidal mass murderer kills 7 Israelis and injures dozens

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a genocidal mass murderer from the Palestinian terrorist group "Hamas" (Islamic "Resistance"), has blown himself up killing 7 innocent Israelis and injuring dozens:

At least seven people were killed and 62 people were wounded in a suicide bombing on a bus Sunday in the German Colony neighborhood in Jerusalem. About 10 of the wounded were in serious and critical condition, rescue workers said.

The explosion took place while the bus was standing at a street light outside the Liberty Bell Park. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack [...]

According to media reports, an organic phosphoric agent was part of the explosives detonated in the attack. The chemical element is used in order to cause more serious damage to the victims of the attack. Police have reportedly relayed this information to the various Jerusalem hospitals.

Channel Two reported that the chemical element was apparently from spray cans carried by passengers aboard the bus.

"These are difficult days, and we are making huge efforts to stop terror attacks," Police Chief Levy said. "However, you cannot put a security guard on every bus at every given moment. It is impossible to prevent all attempts to carry out terror attacks."

While the United Nations and the international court of clowns in the Hague discuss the "legality" of Israel's security fence, the Palestinians bastards from the Hamas and Islamic Jihad continue in their genocidal attempts to murder women and children.

Israel will continue to build the security fence and will continue to stop these terrorist bastards from the Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Arafat's Al-Aksa Brigades. One by one.

AT LEAST SEVEN KILLED IN JERUSALEM BUS ATTACK
By STUART WINER, Feb. 22, 2004, Link

At least seven people were killed and 62 people were wounded in a suicide bombing on a bus Sunday in the German Colony neighborhood in Jerusalem.

About 10 of the wounded were in serious and critical condition, rescue workers said.

The explosion took place while the bus was standing at a street light outside the Liberty Bell Park.

Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack, which took place one day before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at The Hague is scheduled to begin hearings over the West Bank security fence, Reuters reported.

A Hamas official, speaking on Al Manar television in Lebanon said that the attack was meant to serve as a message to the ICJ that the security fence will not bring security to Israeli civilians.

Jerusalem Police Chief Miki Levy said that the blast, which occurred at around 8:20 a.m., took place in the middle of bus No. 14A, going from Har Homa through the center of town to Beit HaKerem.

Levy said that there were no specific warnings for this attack. It is the second time that the bus line has been a target of terror attacks.

The streets in the area, including King David street and Jabotinsky street, have all been blocked off.

Shin Bet officials said that there were 52 terror warnings on Sunday. However, there was no specific warning regarding a terror attack in Jerusalem.

The officials added that the "relatively quite past weeks are deceiving", as the various terror groups are making constant efforts to carry out terror attacks.

According to media reports, an organic phosphoric agent was part of the explosives detonated in the attack. The chemical element is used in order to cause more serious damage to the victims of the attack. Police have reportedly relayed this information to the various Jerusalem hospitals.

Channel Two reported that the chemical element was apparently from spray cans carried by passengers aboard the bus.

"These are difficult days, and we are making huge efforts to stop terror attacks," Police Chief Levy said. "However, you cannot put a security guard on every bus at every given moment. It is impossible to prevent all attempts to carry out terror attacks."

A spokesman for Egged said that a security guard was on the bus but disembarked meters before the blast took place. He added that the guard was under interrogation.

Referring to the hearing at The Hague on Monday, Levy said that the attack is somewhat connected to the hearing. "The fence is very important for securing the lives of Israel's citizens," he added.

The wounded were evacuated to Hadassah Hospital in Ein Karem, Hadassah Hospital at Mt Scopus, Bikur Holim and to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

Professor Yonatan Halevy of Shaare Zedek Hospital said that of the 17 wounded that arrived at the hospital, four or five are in serious conditions. Halevi added that one person died in the ambulance, on the way to the hospital.

Over 20 wounded arrived at Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital and six people at Hadassha Mount Scopus hospital.

Thirteen wounded arrived at Bikur Holim Hospital.

The explosion took place near the Liberty Bell Park which is situated close to the Prime Minister's and the President's official residences.

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ahmad Qurei and Palestinian Cabinet minister Saeb Erekat condemned the attack and urged "the United States to step up its efforts to revive the peace process."

Israeli officials said the blast proved the need for the security barrier it was building in the West Bank.

"Palestinian terror continues to pose a clear and present threat to Israeli civilians," said David Baker, an official in Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's office.

On January 29, 11 people were killed after a suicide bomber blew himself up on bus no. 19., in the most recent terror attack in the capital.

Eyewitness Accounts

"It was like an earthquake," Ora Yairov, who was at the gas station during the explosion, told Channel One television. "The station was filled with shattered glass and pieces of flesh."

Meir Aharon, 69, who was injured during the blast said he sat in the second row behind the driver and that he heard a loud bang.

"It was a miracle [that I survived] since I went to pray in the morning," he said.

Avigal Ben–Hamu said that her brother, aged 23, was lightly inured in the attack and that a year and a half ago her sister, Michal, was killed in the number 32 bus attack in the capital

"I still feel terrible I don't know how to continue like this," she said.

Elazar Shtrum, an eyewitness to the blast said that the bus is totally wrecked and that glass was everywhere.
