Those rotten Palestinian bastards. Those rotten, cowardly, evil bastards. Suicide Bomber Kills 20 on Israeli Bus.

JERUSALEM - A suicide bomber blew himself up Tuesday on a packed bus on a main thoroughfare in Jerusalem, killing at least 20 people, Israel Army Radio said.

The militant Islamic Jihad group claimed responsibility in a call to the Lebanese TV station Al Manar. The attack killed three children and wounded at least 100 more.

The blast on the extra long bus, which had two passenger sections that were full, went off shortly after 9 p.m. Another bus nearby also was hit by the explosion.

The bus had started out at the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest shrine, in the walled Old City, and was headed to an ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighborhood, radio reports said, making it likely that many of the passengers were ultra-Orthodox.

The bus was badly damaged, with its windows blown out, and rescuers had to use blow torches to pry wounded from the wreckage.

“What is clear is that it was a very big bomb,” Jerusalem fire chief Amnon Amir said.

Shocked survivors, including several crying children with blood-smeared faces, were led away from the scene. A paramedic cradled a little girl in his arms, and two others led away an older woman.

Paramedics treated wounded on the sidewalk, and body parts were strewn about.
