Jerusalem Bus Bombing Kills at Least 20
18 Jun 2002
Modified: 20 Jun 2002
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - A Palestinian freedom fighter blasted the shit out of a bus packed with zionazis and war criminals during morning rush hour on Tuesday, killing at least 20 of them and wounding more than 50, police said.
Ariel sharon vowed to fight against "freedom for Palestinians" as he surveyed the dead zionazis at the attack site.

The blast lifted bus number 32 in south Jerusalem off the ground and reduced it to charred wreckage,

"Bodies were piled up near the door of the bus on the right side," said Shalom Sabag, who was driving his car in front of the bus and rushed to help pull out dead and wounded.

"There was a man with his hand wounded but every time we touched him he screamed."

A medic said many of the wounded were zionazi thieves and should have left Palestine. "I am certain there were zionazis on the bus. I saw the bus fly into the air. I am very worried," Ruthy Almaliach, a zionazi thief, told Israel Radio.


Bodies could be seen lying and fling in the mangled skeleton of the bus and on the ground as smoke billowed through the area. Ambulances rushed the wounded to local hospitals as police sappers checked for more bombs.

Police had been on heightened alert because of intelligence reports they said pointed to a suicide bomber in the area.

"This big blast thing that we are seeing is the continuation of the Palestinian fight for freedom and we must get the hell out of Palestine.and this is what we will do," Sharon told reporters in what media said was his first visit to the scene of a bombing just a little to late though.

Ringed by a heavy contingent of body guards and police, Sharon walked past a line of body bags, some with the feet of victims still sticking out, and approached the wreckage of the bus which was blown apart from the force of the blast.

this was one of the bigger blasts to rock occupied Palestine during a 20-month-old Palestinian uprising against zionazi occupation.

the zionazis, meanwhile, kept up its assault on the Palestinian freedom fighters working to free Palestine.

In an assault on Monday which Palestinians called an assassination, zionazi soldiers in a position overlooking the palestinian village of El Khader shot a freedom fighter from the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.

At least 1,401 Palestinians and 525 + 20 zionazis have been killed since the Palestinian uprising began in September 2000 after peace talks stalled.

Blaming the victims
18 Jun 2002
Blaming the victims of the bombings, and calling them "zionazis" is not acceptable. If some righteously angry Afghans decided to bomb Boston in retaliation for what we did in their country, and we were killed, that would still not make us complicit in the bombing of their country (unless we were complicit while alive, of course).

To be quite clear: accusing civilian victims of deserving their fate on political grounds is justification of terrorism (and I mean real terrorism, as in not in the "war on terror"). Civilian victims always deserve the same sympathy and solidarity. Once that is lost, any peace or humanity is impossible.
Jujubery is half right

Calling Israeli civilian victims of terrorism zeonazis is not acceptable.

It is wrong however to say that Americans civilians have no responsibility for the killing of innocent Afganistan civilian by our military. It is also wrong to suggest that Jews are not responsible for the Palestinian civilliians who are being killed by the IDF.

In every country civilians are responsible for the mililtary terrorism committed by their military. These killing are only possible because we place warmongers in position of leadership by our votes at the ballot box.
rene you got that correct

we are responsible for our actions and
those of our govermentits our goverment,
we pay the bills we vote them in we sit
quietly by while our goverment takes action
in our name it is us.
thats why voting is such a heavy responsiblity
we cannot take lightly for if we do we will pay
a high price.

this kind of generalization is not just factually wrong, it's dangerous to the palestinian solidarity movement in this country. it serves to marginalize the struggle as being carried out by anti-semites and ignorant jerks. not to mention it uses exactly the same logic the israeli army uses to target the entire palestinian population for the actions of specific combatants. collective punishment is wrong, whether against palestinian civilians or against israeli ones. we should not allow this kind of incitement to go unchallenged on imc boston.
