"The father was traumatized, he went into shock. He ran to the children to gather them up and the children were screaming, 'Mom! Mom!' and she wasn't answering, she was dead already..."In what Hamas justifies as an act of self defense a Palestinian terrorist, whoops my bad, mustn’t judge, a Palestinian militant blew himself and scores of others up at a bus station falafel shop in Tel Aviv. Mahmoud Abbas had the guts to call it terrorism, something Reuters will not do.
An Arab television station aired a video tape showing a young militant from Islamic Jihad, holding an assault rifle, and said he carried out the attack.Associated press also doesn't use the "T" word.
The blast came amid a sharp increase in fighting between Israel and the Palestinians across the Gaza border. Militants have fired barrages of homemade rockets at Israel, and Israel has responded with artillery fire.So when Israel launches a counter attack against a rocket launch site Palestinians respond by attacking a falafel shop. Abbas said "This operation does not go in line with the Palestinian national consensus and the ... interests of the Palestinian people." However Hamas, who by Palestinian national consensus recently took over the Palestinian Government, calls it self defense. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said the attack was an act of "self-defense" which he said was a reaction to "the continued Israeli crimes against our people". Crimes such as attacking rocket launchers or killing terrorist leaders. Syrian Hamas leader Moussa abu Marzouk told Al Jazeera that "the Israeli side must feel what the Palestinian feels". Maybe Palestinians should feel what the Israeli feels. That would mean indiscriminately killing men, women and children however and the Israelis, despite what the left says, are not terrorists.
