Bus bombing in Haifa

03.05.03

There’s been another terrorist attack in Israel. A bus bombing in Haifa has left 8 people dead and the death toll could rise even further.

The explosion tore the roof off the bus and turned the vehicle into a charred wreck. The blast hurled bodies out onto a main street at the entrance to the Carmeliya neighborhood in Israel’s third largest city.

My heart goes out to the victims and their families. You’d think by now that we would have figured out a way to react to this kind of news. But, I can’t speak for others, but I haven’t. My initial thought is always this sinking feeling of dread, followed by fear for the friends and family in the area, and total and utter loathing for the terrorist murderers responsible.

"The center of the bus lifted up into the air; the roof was torn off."

"The center of the bus lifted up into the air; the roof was torn off."

Goddamn bastards.

Update: Ha’aretz reports at least 12 dead and 30 wounded. And I fear these numbers will increase further.

Second update: I’m feeling a bit better now, having gotten through on the phone to Haifa and assured myself that my friends are all okay. This one just hit way too close to home.
