And again

01.19.06

A suicide bombing in Tel Aviv, near the central bus station, has so far injured at least 10 people.

What is there to say that hasn’t already been said thousands of times already?

Update: The latest figures say 22 people were wounded. Ha’aretz is reporting that the Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility, but suggests that it’s a bit murky and that the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade (in other words, Fatah) may be behind the attack.

What really irks me is that media reports call this the “first bombing in a year”. Not true. It’s the first suicide bombing (though not the first attack) of the 2006 calendar year. But it’s been barely five weeks since a terrorist bomber struck in Netanya on December 5th, murdering five Israelis.

Say it with me now: What truce?

“first bombing of the year”. Oh yeah! Gee, they make it sound like it’s something to celebrate…..like the first baby of the year, or something.

This is Olmert’s baptism, so to speak; his decision on how to respond both to the attackers and to the critics who, no doubt, will be all atwitter over any Israeli ‘infractions’ of the ‘Truce’.
I’m thinking maybe launch Tre at Hamas Head office.

Not IMO. He will continue Sharon’s apathy toward minimal Jewish casualties. Without the ‘mega’ attack with 30+ Jewish deaths to cause a pradigm shift, nothing will happen. Especially with the Palestinian elections coming and the ‘news’ showing that Mazen is in trouble. ‘news’ I don’t believe since when they told us that we need to not put pressure on Arafat since he needs time to control his elements.

Tre,”insulting” and ‘childish’? Seriously, enough of your phony victimization game, ok?
Here’s some sound advice:
Stop repeating the same old silly lies and bullcrap,and maybe, just maybe , you can win some respect!
Until then, you are fair game.
