. . . and Again
What is it, three or four, attacks in twelve hours? In addition the murder of the couple in Hebron, there were two more "suicide" bombings. According to JPost, seven Israelis were killed and more than 20 injured Sunday morning when a scum-bomb blew himself up on a No. 6 bus in Jerusalem in the morning rush hour. According to police, this one, too, was disguised as a religious Jew.

Twenty minutes later, another scum-bomb blew himself up at one of those checkpoints where Palestinians hate to wait in line. Thank G-d for the roadblock: he left this world without taking any Israelis with him.

Ariel Sharon has postponed his meeting with President Bush.

CNN was despicable last night. The idiot reporter asked an emergency medical response team worker if this scene wasn't becoming very "familiar." Obviously bored with dead Jews, she wanted to know if Israeli rescue personnel weren't also finding it so. I could have vomited. The spin then became how the Palestinian Arabs have accepted the road map (killing more and more Jews all the while), but the Israelis haven't. The Israelis are throwing up obstacles to peace! It's unbelievable to hear such garbage when you're staring at what remained of that bus, at the Zaka workers, G-d bless them, retrieving every bit of flesh, to be properly buried.

Go to Charles' blog at littlegreenfootballs, "The Face of a Palestinian," to see the 19-year-old Arab engineering student from Hebron Technical College who carried beneath his disguise as a religious Jew, a "vest containing high explosives packed with nails, screws and chunks of metal" and blew himself up to murder Jews. This, alongside a quote from an International Solidarity Movement "human shield" -- "The Palestinian people feel they are ignored and denied a voice."

"You shall give the Land by lot as an inheritance to your families . . . But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the Land before you, those of whom you leave shall be pins in your eyes and thorns in your sides and they will harass you upon the Land in which you dwell" (Numbers 33:52-6).
