Palestinian murderer kills two Israelis

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a female Palestinian bastard has blown herself up murdering two Israelis and injuring 16:

An 18 year old female Palestinian suicide bomber wearing a bag packed with explosives blew herself up near a crowded Jerusalem bus station at the city's French Hill intersection Wednesday afternoon after being stopped by an Israeli border policeman, killing him and his partner and wounding 16 other civilians. [...]

The Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades, an offshoot of Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's mainstream Fatah faction, claimed responsibility for the attack, and identified the bomber as Zainab Abu Salem from the Askar refugee camp near the West Bank city of Nablus.

According to police and eyewitness accounts, the female bomber, her face nearly completely covered in a headscarf, was approaching the heavily-guarded bus stop at Jerusalem's northern French Hill intersection just before 3:40 p.m. when she was stopped by one of the two border policemen stationed at the adjacent hitchhiking station who was suspicious of her. When the security officer asked to see her identity papers, and to open her bag for inspection, the bomber began arguing with him, and then almost immediately set off the three to five kilograms of shrapnel-packed explosives she was wearing on her back. [...]

The late-afternoon blast completely gutted the hitchhiking station, sending chunks of human flesh flying into the city's main northern thoroughfare, and spraying shards of glass onto the busy road that leads out of Jerusalem. [...]

As the smell of burnt rubber and human flesh wafted in the air, paramedics and rescue officials rushed the injured to the hospital, the more serious raced on stretchers inside wailing ambulances. Police and rescue workers, some covered in plastic white chemical-protected jumpsuits, scoured the ground for pieces of the bomb and human remains.

This mass murdering Palestinian excuse for a human being had a deliberate goal of killing women, children and babies.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and Arafat's terrorist organization, the Al-Aksa brigades publicly announce their goal of destroying the State of Israel and murdering all of her Jewish citizens.

Suicide bomber kills two in Jerusalem
By ETGAR LEFKOVITS, Sep. 22, 2004, Link

An 18 year old female Palestinian suicide bomber wearing a bag packed with explosives blew herself up near a crowded Jerusalem bus station at the city's French Hill intersection Wednesday afternoon after being stopped by an Israeli border policeman, killing him and his partner and wounding 16 other civilians.

The two border policemen killed in the blast were identified as Corporal Mamoya Tahio, 20 from Rehovot and Corporal Menashe Komemi, 19, of Moshav Aminadav on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

The Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades, an offshoot of Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's mainstream Fatah faction, claimed responsibility for the attack, and identified the bomber as Zainab Abu Salem from the Askar refugee camp near the West Bank city of Nablus.

According to police and eyewitness accounts, the female bomber, her face nearly completely covered in a headscarf, was approaching the heavily-guarded bus stop at Jerusalem's northern French Hill intersection just before 3:40 p.m. when she was stopped by one of the two border policemen stationed at the adjacent hitchhiking station who was suspicious of her. When the security officer asked to see her identity papers, and to open her bag for inspection, the bomber began arguing with him, and then almost immediately set off the three to five kilograms of shrapnel-packed explosives she was wearing on her back.

"The operation of the border police officers today in Jerusalem prevented a very big attack at the bus stop," Jerusalem police chief Ilan Franco said at the scene of the explosion.

The late-afternoon blast completely gutted the hitchhiking station, sending chunks of human flesh flying into the city's main northern thoroughfare, and spraying shards of glass onto the busy road that leads out of Jerusalem.

Eyewitnesses recounted seeing the bomber approaching the bus station, the tension vivid on her face.

"I saw the terrorist coming, I knew she was a terrorist straight away, you could see the tension and cruelty in her face," recalled eyewitness Avigail Hilini, 22 who was making her way home to West Bank settlement of Mitzpeh Yericho. "She was totally covered in a large brown shawl, except for her face and eyes. I saw that the Border Policeman was checking her, and I clamed down a bit. Seconds later she exploded. I saw people running everywhere and I ran myself. I started shaking and crying."

Meters away, the twenty-some people at the busy and oft-targeted bus stop ran for shelter, with most escaping with light injuries due to the action of the border policeman, whose remains lay in a plastic white covering next to the metal skeletons of the bombed-out hitchhiking post. The second border policeman died on the operating table at Hadassah University Hospital at Mount Scopus.

"I was waiting for the bus and suddenly I heard screams and I saw dust and I just started crying," said eyewitness Freda Amsalem, 40 of the nearby West Bank settlement of Ma'ale Adumim, who was lightly wounded in the blast. "I called my husband on my cell phone and all I wanted was to see my kids," she said, noting that her own mother was lightly injured in a previous Jerusalem bombing.

As the smell of burnt rubber and human flesh wafted in the air, paramedics and rescue officials rushed the injured to the hospital, the more serious raced on stretchers inside wailing ambulances. Police and rescue workers, some covered in plastic white chemical-protected jumpsuits, scoured the ground for pieces of the bomb and human remains

"It was a grave attack, something which obliges us to continue fighting terrorism as we have in the past," Prime Minister Ariel Sharon told Israeli television.

The two border policemen killed in the blast were doing their compulsory military service in the border police. Komemi is survived by his parents and seven siblings. His cousin, Ra'anan Komemi was killed during his IDF service in a gun battle with Palestinians in Nablus. Both policemen are slated to be buried Thursday.

Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski said that the attack reiterated the need for the government to speed up construction of the security barrier going up around Jerusalem, which he dubbed "the wall of life." To date, only a quarter of the planned 64 km Jerusalem-area barrier has been completed.

Wednesday's attack, which brought to nearly 120 the number of Palestinian suicide bombings in the last four years, was the eighth such attack to have been carried out by a woman.

Counter terrorism experts have speculated that Palestinian terror groups are "http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=JPost/JPArticle/ShowFull&cid=1095743614687">increasingly using women for their attacks because they raise less suspicion among Israeli security officials.

More than 1000 Israelis have been killed in the last four years of violence, with nearly half of them murdered in Palestinian suicide bombings.

With its proximity to the West Bank offering a quick getaway for Arab accomplices, Jerusalem's French Hill intersection has long been a frequently targeted spot for Palestinian bombers, and has seen nearly a dozen attacks in the last four years of violence. Security officials have long said that Jerusalem's northern border is its most porous, and the security barrier going up in the area is meant to amend that problem. Last week, the Jerusalem police chief has estimated that it will take another year for the barrier around the city to be completed, barring any further court-imposed delays as the result of Palestinian appeals.

The last major suicide bombing in Israel occurred three weeks ago on August 31, when 16 people were killed in a double Hamas suicide bus bombing in Beersheba.

Wednesday's bombing broke a seven-month lull in attacks in Jerusalem, with the previous attack in the city a February 22 bus bombing that killed eight people, and shattered a sense of security that had grown the capital in the last months with the dearth of such attacks.

Security officials attribute the dramatic drop in the bombings both to the security barrier under construction, as well as to ongoing IDF operations in the West Bank against the three major Palestinian terror organizations, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigade.

The drop in attacks in the capital over the last year, security officials repeatedly stress, has not been ascribed to any decrease in either the planning and desire of these groups to carry out such bombings.

In the last two months alone, police said, about half a dozen bombings have been thwarted in the capital.
