Palestinian homicide bomber murders one and wounds 9 Israelis
To prove that the Palestinians are serious about not implementing any peace agreement, a Palestinian murderer has killed one and wounded nine in another homicide bombing:
A security guard was killed and nine other people were wounded, one of them seriously on Thursday morning in a suicide bomb attack at the entrance to the Kfar Sava train station, northeast of Tel Aviv. [...]
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Hamas, and Arafat's Al-Aksa brigades reject peace and the existence of the State of Israel. They call for the genocide for all Israeli Jewish citizens and are responsible for thousands of attacks against women and children.

One dead in suicide bomb attack in central Israel
A security guard was killed and nine other people were wounded, one of them seriously on Thursday morning in a suicide bomb attack at the entrance to the Kfar Sava train station, northeast of Tel Aviv.
The wounded were taken to Kfar Sava's Meir Hospital, where one was listed in serious condition, and to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikvah.
The bomber detonated explosives at the entrance to the station at about 7:20 a.m. local time, as Israelis waited on the platform for a train, witnesses said. He set off the bomb earlier than planned after a security guard spotted him and demanded to see hi identity papers, Sharon region police commander Amichai Shai said.
"If he had managed to get inside the station, we woujld have seen many more casualties," Shai said.
Alarm bells were still going off at the station for about an hour after the attack as demolition experts scoured the blown out station for more bombs. A helicopter flew overhead, and three ambulances remained at the site in the event of further casualties.
Two bodies were lying on the platform and the entire entrance of the brand new station was in ruins.
The entire entrance of the brand new station was blown away by the blast and pieces of twisted metal hung from the ceiling. Pieces of glass were strewn as far as 30 meters away.
The attack follows a quiet Pessah holiday but one in which several suicide bomb attacks were averted by security forces who arrested would-be bombers in West Bank cities and refugee camps before they could set out for an attack.
Kfar Sava is a town close to Israel's frontier with the West Bank that has been the site of previous terror attacks.
