Three Dead in Suicide Bombing

So much for a ceasefire. More Israelis are now dead. Once again it's near a nightclub (this time the Stage club on Herbert Samuel Street) on Tel Aviv's beachfront promenade.

Which lovely faction accepted responsibility? Well, militants from Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades -- you know they're tied to Abu Mazen's Fatah movement -- claimed it was Hezbollah. But on their TV station, they're reporting that Islamic Jihad has claimed responsibility. So is this the new way of doing suicide bombings? Pass the hot potato of blame from faction to faction so that action can't be taken? As Dr. Evil would say, "Greaaaaat."


It's now 4 dead, 49 injured. It ticks me off that reports will say this is the first breach of the ceasefire, when in reality, it's the first lethal/successful breach. The IDF has found many roadside bombs, bomb belts, etc. but the MSM doesn't seem to count that.

It is expected - (yet of course rejected) - but there will be haters who know only one way.

But if 5%, or 10% or 30% want to continue the terror, are the rest and Israel to be thwarted in their desire for peace?

This is will be painful no matter which road is chosen.

Death is on either track: one road has a chance for peace, and the other none.

It is Sharon's duty to provide the security no matter which road, and if he does not he will be voted out very soon.

Great points. And very true -- the road will be painful no matter which is chosen.

You could install Mother Theresa as prime minister of the PA, and the Religion of Peace&trade would still be undeterred in its noble mission of making Israel Judenrein.

And yes, Sharon needs to do whatever it takes to provide security. Pushing ahead work on the security barrier would be a good start.
