A terrorist blew up a bus on Shaul Hamelech Street in Tel Aviv around noon Wednesday.

Magen David Adom said that at least 10 people were injured, three moderately to seriously.

Police confirmed that the explosion was a terrorist attack, although Channel 2 reported that it was not a suicide bombing and thus police were searching the area for additional explosive devises.

Channel 2 reported that police arrested a suspect near the Ramat Gan diamond exchange, who they believe may be carrying an explosive device. Police believe a female terrorist may still be at large in the area, armed with explosives.

Since it is early I expect that when I get home from work tonight EAO will have a perfectly valid explanation as to why this is all Israel's fault.

Good, at least two people know the difference between insurgency and terrorism.

Planting a bomb on a loaded bus qualifies as terrorism. WE all know the difference.

It's tiny but it's still a war. Same **** goes on in Baghdad but they don't call insurgents terrorists when the news is talking of them.

Insurgency implies strikes against a government (government buildings, strategic army sites, etc). Terrorism, strikes against the citizens of the government. Bombing a city bus is terrorism, even if you're an insurgent attempting to rise up against the government.


World English Dictionary
terrorist (ˈtɛrərɪst) — n

The one where they bombed a politician and there were civilian casualties?

All through that, it's strategic police, military, and political attacks, not just bombs on buses.

You didn't follow the link where you find stuff like:

BAGHDAD: At least seven Shia pilgrims from Iran and Pakistan were killed in Iraq on Saturday when a car bomb went off by a restaurant in a city north of the capital, police and hospital sources said.

The attack took place a few days into the holy month of Ashura, which is of special significance to Shia, who are targeted by al Qaeda's Iraqi affiliate and other Sunni insurgents.

Okay I see what you're saying. That doesn't make that not terrorism though, just because they've classified them as a cohesive insurgency.

The issue is with that report calling them insurgents rather than this report calling them terrorists. This report is correct. The other is incorrect.

While you are waiting perhaps you can find out how the bus incident is bad for a cease-fire agreement but the actions below are not.

(in part)
The Tel Aviv bombing came after a night of more than 30 Israeli airstrikes over Gaza that hit government ministries, smuggling tunnels, a banker's empty villa and a Hamas-linked media office.


Israel launched the offensive Nov. 14 following months of rocket salvoes from Gaza. It has battered the territory with more than 1,500 airstrikes. The militants hit back with more than 1,400 rocket attacks. The Israeli death toll has been relatively low because of a U.S.-funded rocket defense system that has shot down hundreds of Gaza projectiles.

What goes up must come down, what is the miss ratio?

Who benefits? Pawns are expendable toward ends. False flags conducted on ones own domestic pawns is very efficient use of those same pawns. Why wait for the enemy do your own exercise precision pin point acts of terrorism. Very cost effective very common. 9/11 stands as one of the best examples. Who ultimately benefits. Something has to be done to silence the criticism of Israel, which is global and threatens to become the prime mover.

Yes, Israels genocide of the Palestinians just got some sympathy this will permit continuation with apparent justification to ultimately satisfy the terms necessary to reach the goal.

It all depends on what the meaning of the word "is" is.....

Oops... I'm 14 years off........but the same dance on the meaning of a word when everybody knows what is meant...
And I thought only EAO and Cannuck liked to dance around wording...have to add Petros

You do? You're a lot smarter than me Terrorism employed by insurgents is still terrorism. In fact, I think you'd be hard pressed to find instances of terrorism employed by other than insurgents. It's kind of an insurgent thing to do.

Anyway, I don't need links to prove that blowing up civilian buses intentionally is terrorism.

Not surprised a comment like that would come from you. Yet we all know that the Israelis you also label as "terrorists" would never be praised with a "freedom fighter" title like you gave to the Jihadists.

Your Jew-hatred is showing again.

Nothing says we want peace like blowing up a bus.

Way to go Hamas.

The genocidal apologists will love this, some Jews died.
