Pali Smithereen Commando Murders Five in Israeli Mall
NETANYA, Israel (Reuters) - A Palestinian suicide bomber killed five people and wounded more than 40 outside a shopping mall in an Israeli coastal town on Monday in a further blow to peace hopes stirred by Israel's Gaza pullout.And thus, the Israelis are repaid for withdrawing from their settlements. Every Palestinian who has turned a blind eye to the activities of groups like Islamic Jihad and Hamas shares in the guilt of these murders.
Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack in Netanya, saying it was avenging Israel's recent killing of senior members of the militant group. A police officer said the bomber smiled at him before blowing himself up near shoppers.
