The daily diet of hateful Islamist propaganda has had its intended effect. A terrorist attack has struck the Jerusalem bus station: At least 25 people were hurt and one woman was killed after an explosive device was detonated in a phone booth near the Convention Center. A worker saw “a yeshiva student running around with his legs on fire.” The Popular Resistance Committees, a Gaza terror group, has lauded the attack.
The bombing occurred just hours after Gaza militants fired two Iranian rockets at the southern city of Be’er Sheva, a dusty corner of the world in the Negev desert. The Israelis are the only Western population forced to live with their eyes turned to heaven, sending their children to school by different buses.
The background to the Jerusalem bombing is, on one side, that of the “Arab revolution,” and on the other side that of the most traditional form of hatred. A new Facebook page calling for a “third intifada” was just created — on Sunday afternoon, the page had nearly 140,000 “Likes.” The organizers’ goal is to reach a million. In the West Bank Jewish community of Itamar, terrorists butchered an entire Israeli family. Word has it that a meeting has been held in Khartoum by members of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, attended by Palestinians, Egyptians, Tunisians, and even English people, where they supposedly coordinated a large-scale international plan for terrorist attacks, to be headed by Iran, the primary target of which would be Israel. Just two months ago, PA president Mahmoud Abbas sent a clear message of support for terror when he awarded $2,000 to the family of a terrorist who attacked Israeli soldiers. [more]
