Bulgaria Bus Bomb .....

Terrorists blew up a bus of Israeli tourists in Bulgaria yesterday, killing at least seven people ~ five Israeli tourists, a Bulgarian bus driver and the bomber in the Black Sea resort town of Burgas, a popular destination for Israeli tourists ~  & wounding up to 40 more. Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu immediately identified Iran as the most likely state sponsor of the attack, and announced that Israel would respond vigorously to the targeting of its citizens.  The incident took place in the Black Sea resort city of Burgas, some 250 miles east of the capital, Sofia. Images shown on the media showed smoke billowing from the scene ~ a Car Park at the area’s airport where tourists had apparently just landed and were about to be bussed to their resort hotel.

Black smoke billowed into the sky from the stricken bus after the bomb exploded. Young Israelis said they were just boarding when the blast ripped through the vehicle in the airport parking lot. Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said at least seven people were killed. And about 40 injured it appears.  On a Sunny Afternoon en route to a beach resort from the Airport ..... where does one find words??

Words of Sadness.  Words of Regret.  Words of Comfort.  Words of Revenge.  Words of Torah.  There are no words that can fix the hole this leaves in the lives of the families.  In the lives of Eretz Yisrael.  In the heart of Jews. For that is why.  They were Jews.  K'Ish Echad, B'Lev Echad.
President Barack Obama termed it a “barbaric terrorist attack” and called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to pledge U.S. help in finding the perpetrators.  Really???   Perhaps if he released Pollard we would be more convinced re his worry at Jewish Lives!?!?!?!?!?!?

Today is a day for tears. Not words.  Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech Haolam, Dayan Ha'emet.  I'm Upset. Perhaps tomorrow I'll blog some stories.

May Ha'Shem avenge the blood of those who were murdered and may their loved ones be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.  May their Neshamot have an Aliyah.  May their Memory be for a Blessing in a world that doesn't care for Jewish Blood!
