Lisa on yesterday’s suicide bombing in Tel Aviv:
I took photos and talked to eyewitnesses. One man told me he’d seen the bombing happen right in front of his eyes, but he couldn’t bear to go near the wounded. “I felt so bad,” he said. “But I just couldn’t stand it. There were body parts and blood and screaming people and it was just horrible. I didn’t think I could do anything for them. I ran away.”
Others were in shock. One woman collapsed on the ground and began retching uncontrollably. Another woman told me that there had been long nails in the bomb and they flew everywhere. A man who had come to look for a relative found out that he was dead and began to cry on the shoulder of a policeman.
As I stood taking pictures of the forensic investigators in their white coveralls collecting evidence, I saw rescue workers pull a lifeless body out from under the debris of the shawarma shop and heave it onto a stretcher.
Great Post Lisa. See her photos here.
And you know what else? We can probably expect even more great posts like this from Lisa, at least according to Sami Salim Mohammed Hammed, the Islamic Jihad member who carried out this attack. Sami, or Sambo as his friends used to call him, in a video taped statement made before his date with the 72 virgins, stated that many more like him were on their way to wage a glorious, albeit defensive battle against the nefarious Falafel joints and Shawarma shacks of the Zionist enemy.
