However, this act of terroism may spur the Hague into action. Monday - the World's Court will begin hearings on the legality of a barrier being errected in Israel. A bombed out bus, being sent to the hearings by Israel is - some hope - evidence enough to maintain the wall.

we all have a stake in defeating those that are behind this. and the most important message is to the Hague that the security fence is essential to Israel's security.
Palestinians say the wall is nothing more than a "land grab."
At issue... a defense barrier that the Israeli Government is building in the West Bank to keep suicide bombers at bay. Sunday's 23-year-old bomber came from Bethlehem where the fence isn't finished yet. The controversial wall - all 450 miles of concrete and barbed wire - runs through Palestinian territory. Some towns... completely surrounded.

SOT: Seab Erekat / Palestinain Cabinet Minister

there are 10's of villages facing the same situation ot being spun between two double walls the barbed wire and the cement. the isreali government will understand that public relations stunt is not the answer to the human catastrophe.
The Palestinian Prime Minister condemned the latest attack saying it could not have come at a worse time.

(SOT AHMED QURIE, PALESTINIAN PRIME MINISTER)

THIS IS AGAINST THE INTERESTS OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE.
