Palestinian terrorists murder 19-year-old Israeli woman; injure over 30

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that the Palestinian mass murderers from Yasser Arafat's Al-Aksa brigades exploded a bomb at a bus stop in Tel-Aviv, killing one 19-year-old woman and injuring over 30 Israelis:


Maayan Naim, 19, murdered by Palestinian Terrorists

Sgt. Maayan Naim, 19, from Bat Yam was killed and over 30 were wounded when a bomb exploded behind a bus stop near the old central bus station in South Tel-Aviv's Har Zion Boulevard Sunday morning. 11 people remain hospitalized in Tel Aviv hospitals, one of whom is in a serious condition.

Liron Aruch, a family friend of the Naim's, described Maayan as a beautiful flower. "She was such a special person. We never believed that we would have to talk about her in the past tense. Its impossible to describe how this girl, such a beautiful flower, leaves home in the morning and does not return to her family. The family has awoken to another reality now. In one second, the family is torn apart. The last photos we have of her were taken at the birth of her new cousin. There are no words, I cannot describe what we are going through," Aruch told Army Radio.

[...] Thirty-four people were wounded, including five who are listed in serious condition. All the wounded were evacuated to hospital within minutes of the attack, MDA reported. [See bottom of story for Hospital numbers]. Twenty-two of the wounded were taken to Tel-Aviv's Ichilov Hospital, where three are listed in serious condition. One of them is a pregnant woman. The Sgt. Maayan Naum died shortly after being brought to the hospital, Ichilov's deputy director Avi Asner said. Most of the wounds were caused by metal shards packed into the explosives, Asner said.

"This morning's murder is the first murder under the auspices of the International Court of Justice's ruling, " Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said as he opened Sunday's cabinet meeting. On Friday, the ICJ ruled that Israel's security fence is illegal and must be dismantled.

As you listen today to NPR, the BBC, and other leftist biased media outlets, you'll hear that the young woman who was murdered, Maayan Naim, was an "Israeli Soldier".

That's true, like most Israeli 19-year-old women, Maayan served in the Israeli army (women serve 2 years, while men serve 3 years of active duty from 18 to 21). That said, the fact that she was a soldier is completely irrelevant to the story.

NPR, the BBC, and other anti-Israel media goons, are simply trying to give the impression that it was OK for the Palestinian murderers to kill this 19-year-old woman. The word "soldier" brings images of an armed fighter, in the field, shooting back at its ennemies - killing a soldier is just part of the harsh realities of war.

The truth is that Maayan was a young woman, almost a kid, who boarded a bus as a civilian, in a residential zone in an Israeli city. Yasser Arafat's Palestinian mass murderers were deliberately targetting Israeli women, children, and babies - and not Israeli soldiers. By using the word "soldier" NPR wants to conform the story to its warped agenda - luckily more and more people are catching on to these lies.

I copy the full article below.





Female soldier killed, 34 wounded in TA bombing
By JPOST.COM STAFF, Jul. 11, 2004, Link

Sgt. Maayan Naim, 19, from Bat Yam was killed and over 30 were wounded when a bomb exploded behind a bus stop near the old central bus station in South Tel-Aviv's Har Zion Boulevard Sunday morning.

Maayan was laid to rest Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. at the military cemetary in Holon.

11 people remain hospitalized in Tel Aviv hospitals, one of whom is in a serious condition.

Liron Aruch, a family friend of the Naim's, described Maayan as a beautiful flower. "She was such a special person. We never believed that we would have to talk about her in the past tense. Its impossible to describe how this girl, such a beautiful flower, leaves home in the morning and does not return to her family. The family has awoken to another reality now. In one second, the family is torn apart. The last photos we have of her were taken at the birth of her new cousin. There are no words, I cannot describe what we are going through," Aruch told Army Radio.

Maayan served in the army's logistics corps in the Tel Hashomer base.

The explosion occurred just after 7:00 a.m. and police are still unsure how the bomb was detonated. At the request of the Police, the Tel-Aviv Magistrates Court has clamped a gag order on the publication of details relating to the method the bomb was detonated. It is the first terror attack in Tel-Aviv in seven months.

Thirty-four people were wounded, including five who are listed in serious condition. All the wounded were evacuated to hospital within minutes of the attack, MDA reported. [See bottom of story for Hospital numbers]. Twenty-two of the wounded were taken to Tel-Aviv's Ichilov Hospital, where three are listed in serious condition. One of them is a pregnant woman. The Sgt. Maayan Naum died shortly after being brought to the hospital, Ichilov's deputy director Avi Asner said. Most of the wounds were caused by metal shards packed into the explosives, Asner said.

Tel-Aviv mayor Ron Huldai said the bomb had been packed with metal bolts, and that several buildings in the immediate vicinity of the attack were damaged. Six Palestinians living illegaly in the country were arrested near the scene of the attack, Israel Radio reported. The six are undegoing interogation by the Shabak.

"This morning's murder is the first murder under the auspices of the International Court of Justice's ruling, " Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said as he opened Sunday's cabinet meeting. On Friday, the ICJ ruled that Israel's security fence is illegal and must be dismantled.

Yasser Arafat's Fatah Al Aksa Martyrs' Brigades in Nablus claimed responsibility for the attack. The group said its Abu Hamdan and Nadr Abu Lil Battalion carried out the attack. The names are references to two Fatah terrorists killed by IDF forces two months ago. Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV reported the group as saying the attack was in response to "the crimes Israel is committing in Beit Hanun."

"This says that we can reach every place, even when there is a fence," an Al Aksa spokesman in the West Bank city of Nablus told the Associated Press.

Tel Aviv police chief Cmdr. Yossi Sedbon said there were no pinpoint warnings of an imminent attack in the city. "There were no concrete warnings but of the Palestinian's intention to carry out attacks we know about for along time already and I am happy to say that we have successfully thwarted several attacks," he said.

Following the attack, Sedbon held consultations with senior district officers during which it was agreed that police would step up their presence in highly-frequented areas. Sedbon added that the fact that the bomb was planted in an open area and not inside a bus minimized the number of casualties.

"The quiet we have experienced lately is deceptive and Palestinian terrorists are looking for any way to get through and attack," Police chief Insp.-Gen. Shlomo Aharonishky said from the scene of the attack.

"I heard a very loud explosion. I looked left and saw a black cloud of smoke," an eyewitness told Israel Radio. "I knew straight away that it was a terror bombing. I stopped my car and dialed 100 [Police] on my cell phone. I ran as fast as I could to the wounded people, there were a lot of citizens who came rushing to help. There were soldiers too, and they took out their medical aid kits and started treating the wounded. I ran from one person to the other, bandaging them until the ambulances arrived."

The wounded were evacuated to hospitals within minutes of the attack, with 14 evacuated to Ichilov, 10 to Tel Hashomer and eight to Wolfson Hospital in Holon.

Sami Mcarah, an Israeli-Arab resident of Yaffo and the head of a non-profit-organization which works towards coexistence between Israelis and the Palestinians, got off the bus just seconds before the bomb went off.

"The terrorist did not intend to just hurt Jews, but he went out to kill as many people as possible. The Palestinians are stupid for what they're doing, they're not achieving anything and in the end they will only turn us Israeli Arabs against them," said Mcarah, who also survived the 1995 number 5 bus bombing on Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv.

Wounded by shrapnel to his leg, Mcarah, rushed over to a woman he saw on the ground and tried to help her. He said he took her pulse but she was already dead. "The images in my head will never go away," he added.

The Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange registered a downturn after news of the attack, Army Radio reported.

A waste of beauty...But let's not forget that a compensation package is in order for the freaks who did this...

I've had enough of this terrorism crap. Being an American Jew I feel called by Yahweh to join the IDF as soon as I turn 18. I won't let Maayan's death or any other Jews' death be in vain. Yeshua once said, "There is no greater love than this, that a man should lay his life down for his friends." Jews are my friends and my people. Therefore I am going to protect them anyway that I can.

"If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn. People die. But real love lives forever."

I hope she will find rest, with all the innoncent death Palestinian AND Israelian brother and sisters. We muslim and jewish poeples belong to each other as humans. It's wrong to think that we are enemy of each other, we should not only following the political option but also the humanity, because that is the most importnent of all!

I hope you all will do the same thing, It doesn't matter if you are 'jewish', 'Christian' or 'Muslim'.

EVENTUALLY WE NEED EACH OTHER!!

Maayan's Death is a much the fault of the United Staes as it is the Pals of Satan. The Criminal Clinton Regime arm twisted Israel into the "Oslo Accords" that gave the PLO, Hamas, Hezboallah and other Terrorists areas IN ISREAL by which they can continue with their Mass Murder Sprees.
MORE Israelis have died since Clinton's Support for Terrorism in the "Oslo Accords" than in any other time since 1948.
Clinton made it possible for the Moslems to continue their Blood Lust and for the Al Qaedans to murder and destroy on Sept. 11.
Israel should reject the "Road Map to Peace" since there isn't one and should concentrate on Genocidal Attrititon Force against the Moslems.

Maayan, I Wish that I had known You. It bothers me that I am getting older and You will never know the Fullness of Life and what it would have held for You.
I Hope that You are in a Better Place Forever.

Shalom. L'Chaim.
