The bus bombing that went off in Jerusalem today was during a rush hour when nurses from a nearby hospital that treats Arabs and Jews alike were headed home.
In another sign of Palestinian cowardess, a bomber was sent to wraek havoc on Jerusalem today. Among the dead were 10 people, many belived to have been workers at a hospital that saved many Palestinian lives. Many were also believed to be non-Jewish residents of Israel. 30 more are injured, a large number critically wounded.
In Comparrison, the Israeli raid on Gaza which prompted the bombing killed 8 Palestinians. 5 are confirmed militants that had planned an attack on the nearby settlement of Netzarim with mortar rounds and gunfire.
Reaction at the hospital was swift. Anger swelled among the medical community which could not see any justification for the bombing of such a bus with humanitarian type workers aboard.
However, it is clear that the Palestinians will stop at nothing, including repeated targeting of their own people on Busses in Jerusalem which often carry Arabs, Jews and foreign workers who are low income.
In contrast, the Palestinians have not yet stepped up to the plate as the Israelis have and at least begun targeting real military conquests, including militants with guns, as Israel has.
My personal opinion is that if the Palestinian militants keep provoking police action by the Israelis to get them to stop, eventually they will have the war to end all wars. And considering that Palestinians are too cowardly to face Israel on a battlefield instead of killing hospital workers, chances are they will lose.
It is high time Israel finally saw Palestinian suicide bombs for what they are, a declaration of war by cowards, financed by Arab oil, not too different from Bush's false war in Iraq.
The hospital which took the brunt of the hit, now needing desperately to replace workers, will turn many Palestinians , Jews, and foreigners away tonight because of understaffing.
And this is called an act of desperation? I think not, better to call it shooting yourself in the foot, and letting yourself bleed to death.
