Suicide Bus Bombing Returns

 

An Egged bus this Monday was viciously bombed in Jerusalem leaving at least sixteen wounded, with the inclusion of one very critically and two seriously wounded amongst those struck. The initial police investigating the scene reported they suspected the explosion was a terror attack but that report was quickly silenced replaced with a more cautious report simply claiming a bus had exploded with the source being unknown and a second nearby bus which held whatever it was that exploded (see pictures below with captions linked to their supporting articles). Doctors reporting on the injuries their patients had suffered removed all doubt in our eyes, and eventually law enforcement came around as well to the knowing this had been a terrorist bombing and likely an attempted or successful suicidal homicide bombing. Many of the patients had the telltale wounds caused by flying nuts, bolts, screws and nails which had apparently been packed within the explosives. Such wounds do not occur naturally even when the object of the explosion was a bus. The busses contain more rivets than nuts, bolts and screws; and they never contain nails as part of their construction. One of the physicians treating the patients from the attack was quoted stating, “Some of the wounds of the victims who arrived to us are from nails and bolts that penetrated their bodies. It gives the impression of wounds from a terror attack.” The two buses were destroyed in the ensuing fires and a civilian vehicle was also damaged. Both Hamas and Islamic Jihad organizations have praised this still potentially deadly bombing as the most grievously wounded are still not out from danger.

The attack could have resulted in far more injuries had not the bus adjacent to the bus with the bomb on it being emptied before it caught fire and fire consumed it relatively slowly. This latest escalation of the assaults upon civilians comes amidst a terror wave starting back middle to late September and has claimed thirty-four innocent victims’ lives and wounded hundreds upon hundreds physically and one can only guess at the thousand who have suffered psychological trauma or emotional stresses with any number of which requiring treatment and rehabilitative services. Often the thoughts do not go beyond those whose blood spilled from wounds of varying nature and tend to ignore the other injuries which often strike just as deep as the nuts, bolts, nails and screws often dipped in strychnine or other poisons in order to maximize the injuries and traumas to the bodies of their victims. One has not received reports indicating such yet in this most recent attack but often the full effects of such poisoning do not fully show until a day or more later. Most of the injuries were suffered on the one bus which had passengers and the private vehicle whose injured are somewhat lost due to the greater magnitude of injuries in the bus. The second bus was empty of passengers but is still a doubling of the damages to the Egged Bus Company and their insurers. The advantage to the reports finally proving to have been a terror bombing is it enables the victims to avail themselves of government funds to pay for all care not otherwise covered and even permits insurers to file complaints of losses.

Minister of the Knesset (MK) Bezalel Smotrich called upon Netanyahu to cancel the planned withdrawal of IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) forces from Palestinian Authority Area A as we reported yesterday in our article Netanyahu’s Risky Response to World Threats cited Monday’s bus bombing as “a reminder” of what could happen. Furthermore, MK Bezalel Smotrich stated “Anyone who needed a reminder of what would happen if the IDF will stop operating in the major Arab cities in Judea and Samaria got {it} today. It was fourteen years ago that the Park Hotel was attacked during the Passover Seder; that terrible terror attack that came after a long period of {deadly terror assaults} in which one-thousand people were killed and it was that {bombing} that led to Operation Defensive Shield, and from then on the IDF took back responsibility for ensuring the safety of Israeli citizens.” It truly was the Park Hotel Seder which so outraged Israelis as the victims were mostly older Israelis and resultant deaths with some being Holocaust survivors and to have them die in such a horrific attack upon Jews simply because they were Jews was a doubling of the pain for an entire nations and to others far from the shores of the Mediterranean, the backdrop for such a horrific act of blatant hatreds. MK Smotrich closed stating, “We must never return to the mistakes of Oslo, which cost us so much blood. I call on the Prime Minister to reject the proposal and the concessions [plan] and end the terror [wave] by removing the motivations that have fueled it.”

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin in heartfelt prayers conveyed his sympathies to the victims and their families, relatives, neighbors and friends as well as the nation as a whole, as these acts of violence strike at each of us in their own way, stated, “Our prayers for a speedy recovery go out to those injured in the terror attack, being treated as we speak in hospitals across Jerusalem. On such a day – when thanks to the dedicated work of the security services, this morning the discovery was revealed of a terror tunnel in the south, and in the evening frightened citizens returning from their daily routine are being rushed to hospital {paused, continuing emphatically} it is clear to us all, that the struggle against terrorism is ceaseless. We will pursue and we will reach all those who wish us harm, until quiet is assured.”

Revealing their truly hate filled hearts, as empty and blackened as the remains of the buses, the Hamas terror organization approvingly applauded the horrific carnage and bombing of buses and their civilian passengers, riding a known Jerusalem bus route which does not serve any contested areas, stated definitive with awe and praise the bus bombing that it was “the natural response to Israeli crimes, particularly the field executions it conducts, and the assaults on the Al-Aqsa Mosque.” Further and in support of such senseless carnage and taking of even more innocent lives whether through injury eating their spirits the rest of their lives or worse, death as all are not out of the woods yet, Islamic Jihad also justified the attack, presenting their praise claiming that it “delivered the message that the Intifada would continue.”

Police reported at the close of their inspections of their efforts yesterday, Monday, stating that an explosive was placed on a number twelve bus line which detonated under or within a bus that was empty of passengers but which led to the wounding of the passengers in an adjacent bus and a private car. They also believed that the person most critically injured was likely the terrorist who set off the explosives as their body was found ripped open nearest the actual bombsite. Daniel Katzenstein, a member of the Psychological-Trauma-Unit for United Hatzalah of Israel speaking to Arutz Sheva informed them of some background tying it to this bus attack referencing that this attack reminded him of the bus attacks of the Second Intifada from between 2000 through 2005 where there were many serious and traumatic bus bombings, many even more damaging and lethal than this particular bombing. He relayed that, “Unfortunately that’s were United Hatzalah gained a great deal of its experience, in responding to bus bombings.” He further expounded explaining that the medical teams began evacuating the wounded, saying, “there were many people who were far too dangerously close to the bus when it was burning. The first task was actually to get them to a safe place and then to begin to treat them.”

 

Our prayer go out to all affected by this horrific crime against humanity though we advise not holding one’s breath waiting for United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon or President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry to denounce this as a cavernous act of cowardice and as a striking of every person residing in a free and diverse state which are all threatened by such terrorist violence. Additionally, with the discovery of a Hamas tunnel which reached over a mile into Israel and the obvious use of construction material allowed into Gaza for rebuilding of infrastructure and residence for the people being diverted almost completely to the building of terror infiltration tunnels, many of which have collapsed being besides the fact, the misuse should cut off all building supplies into Gaza. The residents of Gaza who are still without places to live and without work as their place of employment has yet to be rebuilt and finding the only work available is to advance the terror goals of Hamas will unfortunately continue to suffer. Such a move will not affect their woes but will prevent further expansion of the Hamas tunnel terrorist infrastructure, the seemingly sole use of every last inch of concrete, rebar and other building materials. Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the rest of the terror structure do not care about the people of Gaza which was made obvious through their not permitting them to seek safety in their tunnel system during the conflict, have not permitted the homeless shelter and food in their tunnels reserving such for their youth and supporters and finally did not use their upper-class homes as places from which to fire the rockets into Israel thus tempting return fire destroying their nice mansions while placing the people’s homes and apartment houses, schools, clinics and other needful places and things as legitimate targets once used for launching rockets. One can also almost hear echoing around the globe the howling which would have arisen had Israel targeted only the multi-million dollar and Euro homes of the Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders and main beneficiaries as that would have been called extrajudicial war crimes which were disproportional as Prime Minister Netanyahu’s house was not struck so why were the leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad mansions destroyed. They would have claimed they had no military purpose completely missing the fairness of including their homes as they risked the targeting of the peoples, those they consider lesser people who must sacrifice so they can live luxuriously. This was another war crime committed by Hamas and Islamic Jihad as they only risked the regular people’s homes, their peasants and lessors of their societal importance and structures. This should be the lesson for every Gazan, that ultimately every home and shopping center, school and clinic, workplace and shopping market of the normal working Gazan that will be sacrificed and never rebuilt for as long as they allow Hamas to run their lives and distribute the goodies to their friends and fighters making terrorism the only occupation in Gaza. That is how a nation becomes a true terror state. One need look no further than Gaza to know what a Palestinian State in Judea and Samaria would become and thus making it obvious why Israel must always maintain security rights even if that limits the Palestinians to a semi-autonomous statehood and not complete separation and independence as that would result in another failed terrorist state where terror would be the sole industry.

The Palestinian Authority currently consists of what is euphemistically named Fatah Party, presumably just a political entity with no real documented terrorist activity and whose members have no terror history according to their communications with the western and world media. The reality is somewhat different as Fatah was simply a rebranding of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which was tasked with the political management including direct control of the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, also referred to as the military arm of the Palestinians and the continued terror arm. Many of the officers in the Fatah Party were also commanders of the terrorist al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades and some al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades also belonged to the Fatah Party. Now the Fatah Party serves as one of the alternate aliases which Mahmoud Abbas, also known by his nom de guerre, Abu Mazen, can use as his title thus allowing for his sometimes, some might claim often, quotes which he uses when speaking to different Arab groups and does not actually desire to have those statements appearing in Print media or other news venues. Abu Mazen, or Mahmoud Abbas claims any number of titles which he can place before his chosen name for that hour including President of Palestine (used since the ruling making the Arab Palestinian observer’s status to representing a nonmember observer state instead of observer entity or other synonym), Chairman or President of the PLO or the Fatah Party, President of the Palestinian Authority or Chairman of the Palestinian Party. All these titles and different names are used to allow deniability by Mahmoud Abbas so when confronted with an actual quote of a statement made under one title he will simply state that he, as the President of the Palestinian Authority, President of Palestine, or any of his other titles other than the one used when making the quoted statement in question, never made such a statement and that he is personally hurt and offended that the media would try to put words in his mouth. This reply is then plastered all over the western media coverage thus putting to lie an actual statement made by Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) clearing his name and cleaning his reputation simply through the implementation of deceitful labeling of Abbas to avoid responsibility for actual words he has spoken.

Remains of Bus from March 11, 1978, Bus Bombing murdered 37 including 13 children and injured 70 Coast Road attack planned by Abu Jihad attack led by Dalal Mughrabi

 

This particular item appearing on the Fatah Facebook page pictured above was the work by two of the PLOs greater terror masters as the attack was planned by Abu Jihad attack led by Dalal Mughrabi. Dalal Mughrabi has been lionized by the Fatah, PLO, al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades as well as by the Palestinian Authority which has named a girls’ school after her, a park, numerous streets and thoroughfares, near countless events and is often taught as a role model for and Arab Palestinian girls to emulate and to be able to attain the great success Dalal Mughrabi had attained in this one spectacular assault on the hated and accursed Israeli Jews, though often the words substituted or used to embellish “Jew” would be inappropriate to relate here. The latest posting by Fatah on Facebook yesterday is not something that unusual as often terrorist attacks and their murderous martyrs are emblazoned across the Facebook pages with great flare and professional stylizing and embellishments aggrandizing their “accomplishments” and their “exemplary lives and martyring of their lives” in service to their people. There are often Facebook postings lauding terrorists and especially those who died in the commission of their acts of terror thus earning exultation as a result of murdering Israeli civilians and even tourists visiting Israel as by visiting they become legitimate targets according to the Arab framework of reasoning. Students are taught to hope to achieve such martyrdom status and it is shown how their attaining martyrdom in the service of the Arab Palestinian cause will also bring great honor to their families as well as wealth from a stipend paid to all families of martyrs. This stipend, just as the salaries of those incarcerated in Israeli prisons for committing terrorist acts are paid according to the numbers of victims of their actions and bonuses for any high level Jews or other Jews or Israelis of particular interest such as the terrorist attempted assassination of Yehuda Glick, a Temple Rights activist leader, (there are no such prisoners for the most part in the Palestinian Authority prisons as any terrorist if found guilty is given a sentence which is commuted within a few days or even as long as a couple of weeks before they are released to continue their work as terrorists). Thus are the actions of the Arab Palestinian society which are taught in their schools including the UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) schools which the United Nations holds are pillars of virtue and teach only the basics same as any other school would with subjects like mathematics, Arabic reading and writing, the sciences and physical education. What the United Nations fails to report is that in Gaza the majority of the UNRWA teachers are active Hamas members and in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) the teachers are often officers from Fatah Party, the PLO, the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades officers, or other terror tied individuals. But such must not be reported and instead should be shielded from the light of day revealing the truth behind the all-encompassing wall of lies.

 

The remains of the bus pictured from that horrific raid which had one of, if not the highest toll of innocent civilians whose only crime was being Israelis and riding a bus, they did not necessarily need to be Jews as the bus very likely could have been carrying non-Jews on that fateful day of March 11, 1978. Those murdered in this attack had been on an outing of sun, fun, swimming, sightseeing and picnics before their day and many of their lives were hijacked and taken for a ride of horrors as this was a chartered bus carrying Egged bus drivers and their families on a day outing along the Coastal Highway. This is what Fatah posted on their Facebook page yesterday to celebrate this glorious event and martyrdom mission where nine of the thirteen terrorist murderers were dispatched to their martyrdom including the most widely celebrated woman of Arab Palestinian fame and history, Dalal Mughrabi. The title accompanying the picture stated “Take Your Dead And Get Out” and was obviously targeting the Jews of Israel. Within the accompanying article were the following quotes referencing for the Israeli Jews to leave Israel, and “take their dead with them.” The posting reported an inflated number of Israelis murdered putting it at eighty when the reality was that the terrorist assaults murdered thirty-seven injured eighty-five innocent civilian bus drivers and their families. The post credited Dalal Mughrabi, a usual inclusion as stated her name is used often to be an example for girls to emulate and for boys to try and at least equal the great achievement of the woman thus challenging their male egos, for leading the actions which, “declared the establishment of the Republic of Palestine in the occupied territories. The enemy admitted that 30 Zionists died in this action, but the number was reportedly over 80.” The original plan had been to storm and seize a luxury hotel in Tel Aviv and take visiting tourists so as to maximize their leverage as such would also threaten the Israeli tourist economy and internationalize the Arab-Israeli Arab Palestinian driven challenges against Israel and gaining support as the Israeli actions would likely cause the deaths of many of the hostages as well as any foreign ambassadors also taken hostage all with the aim to exchange them for Palestinian prisoners or take with them as martyred for the Arab cause. They landed forty miles north of Tel Aviv and never reached their intended area as Israeli forces and police blocked the road a full eleven miles north of the Tel Aviv city limits. This was where the Arab Palestinian terrorists murdered as many Israelis as they were able and completely destroyed the bus before nine of the eleven who made it this far, two drowned after falling from their rubber dingy during the trip down the coast from Lebanon, were killed and the two remaining were arrested.

 

It was from the two surviving terrorists that the Israelis learned of the full extent of the carnage wrought which included their initial meeting of American photographer Gail Rubin who was simply taking nature shots and who informed the terrorists of their location and the distance to Tel Aviv. After getting their desired information they murdered American Gail Rubin who was the daughter of then United States Senator Abraham A. Ribicoff. After proceeding south along the highway and opening fire at passing cars they hijacked a white Mercedes taxi murdering the driver and his fares taking this as their transportation. This is when they came across the charter bus and hijacked the bus and proceeded on towards Tel Aviv after having tied a number of passengers to their seats. They noted a car following them behind and began suspecting something was not right so after a while they pulled over and as the vehicle was passing they shot the car injuring the arm of the father driving and horrifying the mother in the seat next to him and a bullet passed through the front seat and struck their teenage son sleeping in the back seat in the head murdering him instantly. The terrorist bus continued south until reaching a roadblock where they destroyed the Bus and murdered as many of the passengers as possible while engaging the troops manning the roadblock. As noted, nine of the eleven terrorists including Dalal Mughrabi, who was identified as having shot American photographer Gail Rubin murdering her immediately.

 

These are the wonderful, caring, law-abiding and moral persons with whom the world desires that Israel provide an independent state which will sit perched on the heights of the Judean and Samarian hills overlooking Tel Aviv and the heart of industrial, residential and commercial Israel and a straight shot at the aircraft leaving and landing at Ben Gurion International Airport. These are the same people who sided with Saddam Hussein during the First Gulf War and were subsequently evicted with great prejudice by the people and government of Kuwait which revoked the work visas and other visas of over three-hundred-thousand Arab Palestinians, yet for reasons easily understood, nobody has ever demanded that the Kuwaitis rehire and give the jobs back to the Arab Palestinians, instead it was understood that they posed a threat that the Kuwaitis simply refused to live with. So, why is the world hoping, nay, forcing as best they can, that Israel either allow to live as neighbors overlooking the majority of Israeli economic heartlands and its residential heartlands or possibly accepting the majority of these Arab Palestinians within Israeli borders? What do these world powers and leaders desire, is it the end of Israel as the Jewish State and the slaughter of over six-million Jews in a second Holocaust? Well, as there had been little if any notice to this latest and the thousands, nay, hundreds-of-thousands of Facebook postings and Tweets on Twitter glorifying terrorists and celebrating the murders of Jews even including the horrific attack on leading Jewish Rabbis during their morning prayers in a Jerusalem Synagogue within the past year, all one can conclude is affirmation of these genocidal postings by the rest of the world who ignore these threats and continue endlessly to force Israeli appeasement of these savages and capitulation to their ever more expansive demands is due to their vile and spiteful hatreds which drive their desires for the complete and utter destruction of the Jews and their state of Israel with the caveat that the deeds be accomplished without any demands for actions from those forcing this tripe using passive support disguised as compassionate policies. Many who bother to watch these empowerments largely by the Europeans, other Arab entities, Muslim supporters, and the United States State Department and those holding animosities towards Israel and the Israeli Jews realize the truth behind these efforts are but accomplices before, during and after the fact though all is usually encapsulated in polite statements using generalities and acceptance of the facade put forth by Mahmoud Abbas and others to disguise their intentions behind numerous press statements, treaties, accords and other false fronts which facilitate their deceit and denial of hatreds which have deeply infected their societies for generations beyond counting. All that is requested is be a neutral entity standing at a distance ignoring all that transpires unless it directly affects you. Hopefully that does not prove to be all that difficult though I am assured there will be those who simply cannot stop themselves and there lies the real problem which amplifies a minor problem which has been intentionally allowed to fester into a major catastrophe of its own making and there are those who cannot but jump up and down screaming that it is the Jews fault that refugee camps in Syria have been overrun by ISIS and now nobody will be able to figure out which Syrian refugees deserve to be Arabs of Palestinian original residence. What is feared here is the world will simply demand that all the Syrian refugees be allowed to reside in Israel, why not just pile on a few million more refugees, it will make the end of Israel come all the quicker. We have a simple response to such haters, Never Again!!
