    I'm more concerned that there had beena truce holding for 4 months which is now broken.
    people sho9uld realise these aren't just terrorists but criminal groups like the IRA scared of losing power. whilst palestinians live in squalor and the PA has little power/authority then they rule the region.
    but once the handover is done and israel gives the PA the means for effective policing and control of areas like the gaza strip, then the days of hamas and co are numbered.

    Why did they do it??

    Progress was finally being made, and then Palestinians commit this atrocity. Israel will now retaliate heavy handedly, the Palestinians won't like it, and thus the whole circle of violence will recommence. Great.

    technically hamas days arent numbered they will probably make the palestinian army and the political bureau will enter politics on top of that talks with britain and hamas seem fruitful so i think hamas will be ok !! islamic jihad and al-aqsa martyrs brigade and others maybe but they might join up with hezbullah to kick israel out of syria !! who knows but thats another episode

    I just don't understand it at all......what's going on with the world?!?!

    Did the G8 not just agree to give something like $3bn aid to Palestine? And there was a truce between Palestine and Israel too?

    Grrrrrrrrr

    What has ever been gained by terrorism? Not much! So WHY do people do it?

    RIP the people who died

    well the jews in palestine around 1948 managed to get there own country from terrorism
    al-queda managed to stop russia from invading afghanistan by terrorism
    french were able to weaken the germans by terrorism

    it seems terrorism is a fruitful past time
    right now the middle east is fighting to free itself from illegal occupations by america and israel etc so i think they think that with terrorism they can make israel and america leave it worked in spain and appears to be working in italy too !!!

    Bashment, you might be intrigued to know that the name "Palestine" was pejoratively given to the Jews by the Romans when they occupied the land. It referred to the Jews and was a corruption of 'philistine' - what better way to humiliate a nation but to name them after their eternal enemies?

    Before 1948, Jews and Arabs were 'Palestinians'. Palestine was split into Israel and Jordan, with a proportional bias towards the Arabs (Jordan was bigger for a smaller population), and since then the Arabs that remained in Israel have tried everything they could to deny the Jews a state. It was not terrorism.

    It's wrong that Israeli bombings don't get treated with the revulsion and news coverage that (for instance) the London bombings did. Thousands more Israelis have been killed on buses than were killed in London last Thursday.
    I usually follow the Israel situation as closely as I can, but I didn't know about this one until I saw this thread.

    I think this bombing also proves that the Palestinian groups do not just want the uprooting of settlements. It shows they're not happy with that and they want Israel dismantled.

    I could go one step further and say that it's simply a cold-blooded racist attack, but I won't.

    It may be racist, but so is the Israeli occupation of East Jerusalem etc. and extreme Zionism in general. It's a two way street. Both Palestine and Israel share equal blame for this situation.

    In those scenarios, yes. List every act of terrorism in the world, and it's a tad bit more diverse..

    Oh such spectatular research!

    As I'm aware "the Minuteman Project" has not been declared a terrorist organisation, or even killed anyone. In future, you might want to give your source due credit (Answers.com, it seems), and at least learn to interpret the information properly: ~15 of them are under "other militant organisations".

    Most of the terrorist organisations that are currently targetting western/developed nations are Islamic, so from a western perspective most terrorists are Islamic.

    It seems even our government agrees with me. Here is a real list of terrorist organisations recognised and banned by the British government as of 2005. As you'll see, the majority are Islamic.

    May I point it out it was the Muslims who were murdered in Bosnia by the Serbian "christian" army.

    No surprise then that the foreign policy of the west has come back to haunt her, the ripped up the middle east created israel and then started taking the piss out of the middle east no surprise that most of these grops are from the middle east then
