A Palestinian suicide bomber killed at least four people and wounded some 50 outside a Tel Aviv night club, shattering a de facto truce by militants that boosted hopes for Middle East peace.
A cell of the militant Islamic Jihad group in the West Bank claimed responsibility for the attack late on Friday outside the Stage Club, a popular karaoke night spot on a Tel Aviv beach promenade frequented by weekend revelers.
Islamic Jihad has however claimed that the attack happened without their knowledge with the Palestinian Authority condemning the bombing and vowing to pursue the attackers. One thing they could do (something Israel has been requesting) is to dismantle the terrorist groups as that would put a clamp down on any terrorist activity (at least for the large part) in the region.
"The Palestinian Authority will not be silent about this sabotage and it will pursue whoever stands behind this act and will inflict the required punishment," an official statement said.
Once found whether the terrorists will be held accountable for their actions is something the world is waiting to see. In the eyes of most Israeli's the PA is at best a front for Terror itself. Until they start translating their words into actions Israel will continue to build the wall thus cutting off the PA economically and socially from their neighboring state. Hopefully Abbas won't be like Arafat and actually pursue the terrorists (and punish them with real justice) letting the Israeli's know that he is serious about peace. Selah!
