A Palestinian suicide bomber, dressed as a Haredi Jew, blew himself up in a car driven by an Israeli couple who had just picked him up while he was hitchhiking this evening. The couple, a young female passenger and another teenager outside the car were killed. The attack took place near a gas station at the entrance to the West Bank settlement of Kedumim. The car was completely obliterated and remained aflame for over an hour after the attack.
According to Haaretz […a] new group linked to Fatah, the party headed by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, claimed responsibility for the attack. The group, from the Balata refugee camp in nearby Nablus, called itself Kateb al-Shahid Chamuda and identified the bomber as Mahmoud Masharka, 24, from the West Bank city of Hebron. The Al Aqsa Martyr’s Brigade, similarly affiliated with Fatah, also claimed responsibility for the attack.
Hamas, one day after taking office, had these kind and concilliatory words in response to the attack:
“It was a natural response to the Israeli crimes, to the continued Israeli killing, incursions and arrests,” said Hamas lawmaker Mushir al Masri. “Our Palestinian people have the right to defend themselves.”
So that’s how it’s going to be then, huh? Cuz ya know Mushir, our Israeli people also have the right to defend themselves. And they don’t have to dress up as if they’re going to a Jewdas/Heeb party to do it. They can pretty much march in at will and blow your shit up. Sure a rucksack full of explosives is pretty powerful, albeit a tad indiscriminate. But that aint nothing compared to a missile or two launched from an Apache. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Israel has many, many ways to fuck you up.
Is that what Hamas wants for the Palestinian people? Dang yo – I see a lot of heartache and pain in your future you stupid, stupid fuckers.
