MORE TERRORISM IN JERUSALEM
A suicide bomber blew himself up on a packed Jerusalem bus on Tuesday, killing at least five people people, police and paramedics said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. However, the militant Islamic Jihad has said it would avenge the killing of a senior operative by Israeli troops last week.
It’s rather difficult to see how deliberately murdering civilians makes up for the assassination of a terrorist. Even if we wish to pretend that the Palestinian militants are a legitimate military force rather than criminals, their leaders during a period of wartime are combatants.
