A bus bombing: They’re not trying to put suicide bombers on buses, apparently, which is both good and bad. This scumbag left an explosive device in the middle of a not-so-crowded bus, and wounded 28 people. Nobody died, but the attack is still horrific. Terrorists usually load their bombs with metal shrapnel, screws, nuts, and bolts to make the effects worse. Hamas is not taking credit, but they did threaten suicide bombings again, so this is on them. The really shitty part of all of this? Israel is going to hold fire tonight as the cease-fire goes into effect. You know the terrorists will not do the same.
By the way, the first AP story out of the dock called the bombing a “complication” to the peace process.
A bomb struck an Israeli bus near the nation’s military headquarters in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, wounding 10 people and complicating major diplomatic efforts to forge a truce between Israel and Gaza’s militant Hamas rulers.
When Israel strikes Palestinian terrorists, the strikes are always a “setback” to the peace process. It took the AP a while to use the same language. And of course, they managed to spin it anti-Israel in the lead.
A bomb exploded aboard an Israeli bus near the nation’s military headquarters in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, wounding 27 people, delivering a major blow to diplomatic efforts to forge a truce to end a week of fighting between Israel and Gaza’s militant Hamas rulers. Thousands of Palestinians fled their homes in Gaza fearing Israeli airstrikes.
What they didn’t put in the lead, but in paragraph 12–where it will never make the three-to-five-paragraph “World News” section of your local paper–was the information that Gazans fled after Israel dropped leaflets advising them to get away from Hamas terrorist hideouts.
Some 10,000 Palestinians sought shelter in 12 U.N.-run schools, after Israel dropped leaflets urging residents to vacate their homes in some areas of Gaza to avoid being hit by airstrikes, said Adnan Abu Hassna, the U.N. Relief and Works Agency spokesman.
And no, the AP can’t seem to help itself. It simply must screw Israel in every story possible.
The word you’re looking for is WTF?!?! The Taliban is shocked that India executed the lone surviving Mumbai terrorist. The terrorist, it seemed, was deathly afraid of being hanged for his crimes. Hey, whaddya know? They hanged him!
And here is what is wrong with the poisonous religion being taught to people like the Mumbai terrorists:
“This news is hell for us,” Shahnaz Sughra, Kasab’s aunt, told Reuters by phone. “…Even if he did something wrong, we just want his body. Even if he did something wrong, I am proud that he taught the enemy a lesson in their own country.”
Even if. Murdering 166 people, and she has to use the qualifier “Even if he did something wrong”.
