On Wednesday, March 6th, Ha'aretz, the prominent Israeli newspaper, reported that "15 people" were killed the previous afternoon in a "suicide" bus bombing in Haifa. The names of the killed and wounded were not disclosed for more than 24 hours, but personal details about the bomber were released immediately. According to Ha'aretz he was "Mahmoud Amadan Salim Kawasme, 20, a computer student from Hebron Polytechnic Institute. A letter was found on his body that included quotations from the Koran. Kawasme is the 20th student from this college to carry out attacks against Israeli targets since the beginning of the Intifada."(2)
Most readers worldwide were told only a half-truth, that the bomber was a 20 year-old Arab Muslim who deliberately murders innocent civilians. George W. Bush poured glue on the lie by condemning the act as "terrorism against the innocent." We want to assume our President tells the whole truth, but he did not.
THE TRUTH COMES OUT OVERNIGHT:
It was later announce that at least two of those killed were IDF (Israeli Army) active duty personnel. Another may have been in the military or the reserves. Unfortunately there were civilian casualties, but the bombing must be viewed as aimed at Army personnel. Why? Because it must be assumed that the soldiers hit were the targets picked. This is the nature of war. Those near soldiers are at risk.
So because they were soldiers or in the reserves, their lives are not worth anything? This article admits that most were civilians. Does it matter who the target was when so many innocents die? When Israel uses this logic when killing innocents when assassinating a terrorist, your side condemns it, but not things like this.
