More blood has been spilled in the Israeli/Palestine issue:
A large explosion ripped apart a vehicle in a United States diplomatic convoy in the Gaza Strip this morning, killing three Americans and injuring one in what appeared to be the first direct attack on an American target since the Palestinian uprising started more than three years ago.
The convoy had passed through the Erez Crossing, which connects Israel with the Palestinian-ruled Strip, and was traveling on the outskirts of the Palestinian town of Beit Lahiya when the explosion took place. It appeared to be caused by a remote controlled roadside bomb. Israeli and American investigators went to the scene afterwards.
Maybe this will wake some people up (State Department, please) that the PLO, the Palestinian Authority, whatever you want to call it, is nothing more than a tightly knit association of garden-variety terrorists, led by a known terrorist, Arafat.
At any rate, I wonder how long it is before some nut claims that the Mossad really caused this explosion in an attempt to make this administration and the American people more pro-Israel.
