    ... about any cowardly attack on unarmed people. Not only in Israel, and I do not believe the only reason for the attack is 'just because they are Jews', but rather 'because they are Israelis' - still (in places) occupying the land of others and denying some the right to return to their country of birth. Even so, it is sad that there are so many people in the world hating others, whether it is a lone gunman with an issue against his own countrymen in Norway or a group of cowards in uniform attacking a busload of people or individuals in the middle of the night (or day, for that matter) on any pretext.
