On Thursday night a Tel Aviv magistrate court allowed the media to report that, a few hours after a bus exploded in a densely populated neighborhood in downtown Tel Aviv, the perpetrators had been captured in a combined effort of police, the ISA and the IDF. It was revealed that the man who planted the explosive charge on the Dan 142 bus was a naturalized Israeli Arab and his operators were Arab residents of Judea and Samaria. Police also arrested the terrorist’s employer, whose vehicle had been used to transport the bomb.

Immediately following the explosion, in which 29 people were injured, security forces launched a chase after the perpetrators throughout the Tel Aviv region, after police explosives experts discovered that the charge which had been concealed under one of the bus seats was activated with a cellular phone, and GSS investigators identified the call as coming from the Arab village of Beit Lakia in Judea and Samaria.

A SWAT team located the terrorist who planted the bomb and his employer, a resident of East Jerusalem, who is suspected of driving him in his car, to help him cross from Israel to the PA governed territory near the Maccabim checkpoint. The two were stopped and arrested. A short while later the SWAT team, together with IDF and GSS forces entered several homes in Beit Lakia and arrested the members of the terrorist cell that plotted the attack.

The three cell members from the village, who are associated with the Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, admitted during their interrogation that they intended to hurt Israeli civilians. In preparation for the attack the cell members purchased cellular phones which were used to activate the explosive charge from a distance. The interrogation revealed that after the cell had been organized, they approached an Israeli Arab, a resident of the Arab city of Taibeh, who was born in Beit Lakia but received Israeli citizenship following his marriage to an Israeli Arab woman.

That Israeli Arab used his employer’s car to reach Tel Aviv, then placed the charge on the bus and alerted the leader of the cell, who was in Beit Lakia, and the latter ignited the charge via the cellphone connection.

Both the perpetrator and his employer admitted the charges against them.

  8. Great team work from the IDF & GSS. Thank you for keeping us safe.

  9. Ron Kall says:

    Since the world wants to accuse Israel of being an aparthied state anyway, all arabs should be shown the door and then they will not have to see dirty Jews every day, which just makes them so unhappy and motivates them to want to kill their Jewish neighbors!

  10. Anonymous says:

    Another success of Peace Now and the Barak-Beinish "supreme court" who imposed granting citizenship to foreign arabs who married Israelis.

  11. Gil Gilman says:

    This was indeed great teamwork, and we can only admire the efficiency with which the apprehension of these thugs was facilitated.

    Ron, I'll take your comment as sardonic, since it sounds that way to me. As you well know, this antipathy is learned from early childhood, and is not very different from an addiction. Many Islamists escape this delusion, which is administered with their mother's milk, but many do not, and become even more marginalized by the predominant "hatred of everything" that exists in their society. They hate their mothers, and all women. They hate anyone different from themselves. They hate Jews as Ishmael hated Isaac. They hate the U.S.A. as the sugar daddy that proves their inadequacy to fend for themselves. They hate all western democracies as full of people who are used to thinking for themselves and expressing themselves without the restraint imposed by their Imams.

    On my last trip to Israel in 2000 I happened to talk to a israeli arab. When he know that I am from Pakistan he starting against jews. I told him if you do not y go arab side may be arafat more kind to you. He cursed me I cursed him back and almost we were to have fist fight. It is in the DNA of all muslims to hate all human being who are not muslim. and also note all lmuslim countries onlhy about 20% are rich and educated others just poors and miserables. Pakistan alone has 20/30 secterian killing every day. In last two days there were 40 deaths by suicide bombs alone. I do not know why Mr. bush said It is peaceful religion( either dumb or ignorant).

    Thank the great G_d. The efficient ability to detect, pursue and apprehend perpetrators are among G_d-given gifts to provide, sustain Israel's security, life and existence. Even Israelis' ingenuity to invent, develop and innovate life-saving devices are His direct providence.

  15. Are the actions of Palestinians and Israelis truly the same? Take a sheet of paper, and list all of the Israeli suicide bombers you can remember; all of the times that Israelis bombed pizza parlors, school cafeterias, wedding receptions, shopping malls, busses. Name all Jewish airplane hijackers.. since 1903. How many Jews were involved in Bali, Madrid, Beslan, the twin towers? How many Arabs have died in pogroms at the hands of Jews, during the last 4,000 years? How many times have Jews decapitated, hanged, dismembered or stoned Arabs? There is no death penalty in Israel. List all other countries in the Middle East which do not execute Arabs.
    If there is a cycle of violence … why is that sheet of paper still blank?

    Virtually all of the Palestinians killed during these past 12 years were suicide bombers, terrorists killed in gun battles, dissidents lynched by fellow Arabs for their beliefs, women and children used as human shields or foils by their “brave fighters” – and yes, dozens of people who were caught in the line of fire.
    Few recall that when Israel began using aircraft to destroy terrorist facilities (following the massacre of Jewish shoppers at a Netanya mall in 01) the Jews actually publicized the targets in advance, in order to minimize Arab civilian casualties.

    Every morning, at least one Palestinian wakes up with a smile and the thought, “I’m going to murder some Jews today.” They strap on explosive belts and guns, and search out any soft target they can find – a city bus, a baby, a student, a jogger. Israelis do not wake up in the morning and set out to murder Arabs. In rare instances when a Jew actually injures or kills a Palestinian, he is arrested and prosecuted. Contrast this with the Arab hero who shoots a Jewish baby. This “martyr of Palestine” will be eulogized by Arabs his family made rich and his picture proudly displayed throughout the Arab world.
