Arrest announced in Tel Aviv bus bombing

An arrest has been made in Wednesday's bombing in Tel Aviv of a bus, an Israel Defense Forces spokeswoman Thursday.

"He is an Arab-Israeli from Taybe & was a member of Hamas," said the spokeswoman, Avital Leibovich, in a Twitter posting about the attack, in which 24 people were wounded. Taybe is a village in the West Bank.

Israeli police said that the bomb was detonated by a cell phone and that the suspect was from Ramallah on the West Bank.

    That's part of centuries of persecution of Jews which has existed from Rome to Russia and it continues in the middle east. Hamas is part of a long tradition of blaming the Jews for everything that ails you. Just be glad you are not a high ranking member in Hamas because they live beneath the ground like rats. That's the cost of being a terrorist. Hamas will go the way of the Romans. See ya laters

    So now maybe we will get prosecution of dozens of Jewish Israelis who kill and maim Palestinian Arabs in Occupied Territories? Or maybe we won't.

    Judaism and Zionism are two completely different things, and the Jewish didn't bomb their own bus, so not sure what your point is.
