This morning (10/10/2002) a terrorists tried to blew himself up in a bus station near Bar Ilan University in central Israel.

We were very lucky: the terrorist tried to go on the bus from the back, he was hit by the door & fell. 2 Israelis who tried to help him so that he is going to blew himself up, so they caught him & told to the people around them to run away.
Then they left him & run away as well. He stood up & run to other people who were still there, then he blew himself up.

He was killed, another Israeli woman got killed, 16 injured.

It all happened 200 meters from my home. This station is the bus station that I use all the time, 3-4 times a day. I was in school during all this (it was in 8AM) but my family herd it at home. I went to school in that morning from the same bus stop. If I were there 30 minutes earlier, I could be dead by now.

Its scary when things you see only in TV come to you.

If Israel chooses to continue with it's policy of racial discrimination, occupation of the lands of others and indiscriminate murder of Palestinian citizens it's citizens will remain at risk of reprisals. Nobody likes what the suicide bombers are doing, but the fact that they are targetting Israelis does not negate the fact that their land has been stolen, they are being opressed by a military regime who has no consideration for non jewish lives.

ADG,

I think that u don't really know what u r talking about, because u don't live here and u don't know how bad is the situation, both for Palestinians & Israelis, so i think that u should not talk about stuff that u don't understand.

We don't opress the palastinias and we kill only the leaders of the organizations that sends the terrorists and not.
Israel was not stolen from them because it was not their land - they stole it from us!!! we where here far befour them, & we are not going to give this land to anyone. Thats the only home for the jews & we are going to stay here! I also think that the world media is only showing their side of the story and not ours.
I think your reaction was differnt if it was 200 meters form your home & your doughter was killed.
Think about it, that now your boy or girl is dead because of something that your goverment did, even if u disagree with what they did.

So go back to your business in Australia, and as Arafat says: "Be Quiet!"

ADG, you live in such a world of unreality. The author tells how some jackass tries to blow people up, and you jump all over Israel. No words of condolences for the author, who himself could have been killed. Why, for once, don't you unequivocally condemn the suicide bombers for their barbarianism, instead of making excuses for these sub-humans? I think that tells us more about your character than anyhting. You're as bad in your own right as the terrorists, because you refuse to condemn them. And don't tell me you do-because if you even attempt it, it's half-hearted at best.

YEP!! Sounds like racial discrimination to me!






Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.

This time it was close, you can thank God that the Dark Lady passed nearby and you were given another day of life.
I have experienced a similar situation, some years ago an acquaintance of my father was murdered by ETA at the Law Faculty (a place dear to me as it has the nicest girls you can find in the local Universities... and 500m from my home). So you probably feel as uneasy, sad and angry as I felt then.
RIP the victims and hope this dark times overcome soon.

Goodness me...how do you both feel now? I know I would be in a mess.

I've had the misfortune to hear a bomb go off in London several years ago, as I'm sure far too many have in this world. I was at school and a representative from the IRA decided to throw a bomb over the fence into an RAF base near my school. Luckily, no one was hurt but it is a very humbling and frightening experience.

I don't really think this is the thread to spout political crap. These people live too close to the violence and shouldn't have to FULL STOP.

Disclaimer: I just want to make it clear that I have no personal "side" in the IvP debates, just think no one should have to deal with this type of thing.

Hope you can get over this El-AL.

I still fail to see how terrorist attacks will solve anything. What you are doing is giving these muderers a reason to justify their acts. Despite all of your arguments, I still fail to see the point in deliberatly 100% of the time ONLY targeting civilians who have absolutley no political power whatesoever. What did the woman who was killed do wrong ADG? Was she part of the IDF attack to kill Hamas members that unfortunatly killed Palestinian civilians? Does she have a say in the actions of the Israeli government? What would you say if Australia decided to occupy New Zealand, and one of your loved ones was a victim of a terrorist attack? "Oh well, too bad our government continues to oppress the New Zealanders...we'll have to accept the blame."
I think not.
And when was the last time you heard of any of the PAs peace agreements? Or peace plans? Or cease-fires? Or ideas to solve the current situation? I have seen virtually none.

I understand the Palestinians suffering and despair. But terror can only make it worse...

ADG, do you have a soul? This person was nearly killed by terrorists, and you have the nerve to rant about Israel repressing the Palestinians. Have some class...I would love to see your reaction if somebody blew up your fellow neighbors 200 meters from your house. Would you be praising and fawning over the opposition, I dont think so. I guess that woman really deserved, huh? Quit being an anti-semite and get some compassion.
