Emergency medical service worker: "It looks like the worst bus bombing we've had."

Palestinian terrorist murders 20, wounds many, in Jerusalem bus bombing
A Palestinian armed with a sucide explosive belt detonated a bomb on a bus in Jerusalem shortly after 9 pm. The bus was carrying many religious Jews who had just come from the Western Wall. About 40 children are among the over 100 dead and wounded. 41 people are hospitalized, 13 of them children.

Israeli official have frozen all further steps in the "peace process." Kalkilye and Jericho will not be transferred to PA control tomorrow. All meetings with the Palestinian Authority have been cancelled.

The New York Times says "a suicide bomber attacked a crowded bus." WRONG. The cowardly terrorist murderers attacked children and other innocents in the bus.

According to the Times, the suicide bomber was three months from receiving a Master's degree from al-Najah University in Nablus. Both HAMAS and Islamic Jihad claimed the attack.
