Update 2: Blame it on Iran: ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER SAYS SIGNS THAT IRAN BEHIND BURGAS BOMBING -RTRS

Update: According to BurgasInfo.com not one but two buses were blown up. Unclear if the second one was also carrying Israeli tourists.

According to Bulgarian press Sega.bg, and confirmed by other wire sources, a bus with 40 Israeli tourists was "blown up" at 5:30 pm local time at the local airport of the seaside town of Bourgas. Sega says that according to BTV "it is an assassination attempt." The bomb was located in the trunk of a white bus with Israel tourists from Israel who were en route to the seaside town of Sunny Beach according to an airport source. The mayor of the city, Dimitar Nikolov confirmed the news according to Sega. Furthermore, according to the airport's website, an Air Via flight from Tel Aviv landed at 4:50 pm local time. The shock wave was so large it also exploded two neighboringing buses located in the arrival area of the airport. The number of casualties is currently unknown, but at least three people are dead according to the local police, with dozens wounded. Sega adds "the flames are huge with three firetrucks on the scene and seven ambulances driving out charred people."

There's often a distinction drawn between killing tourists and killing soldiers.

Hard to understand why, but I guess old biases die hard.

I think ZH's point is that this might start something bigger...because as we all know, the Israeli's never are just quid pro quo.  For every one dead Israeli, there are 500 dead Muslims.

Really?  500 dead Muslims for every dead Isreali?  Is that just the kill ratio for Isrealis or would you extend that to Jews as well?

Can you offer any support of that statement?

After a hundred years of brainwashing and propaganda, any story with the word "Israel" is to be immediately and completely worshipped. We have been brainwashed into believing that the Cocksucking Jew Bankers are "Living Gods" when they are actually the source of 99% of the EVIL perpetrated on the planet

Seems about right.  After all, the US killed about 900,000 arabs over 3000 US deaths, and we aren't done yet.  The Israelis are quite a bit more efficient than we are in regards to killing and oppressing people, but they are also a lot closer to them.  I'm sure if we were to, say, invade Mexico, and wall off her citizens into a tiny desert ghetto, we could probably get that ratio up over 1000.

So anyone who criticizes Israel is an anti-Semite? By that logic, anyone who criticizes the Vatican must be anti-Christian. - For a better comparison to the Jewish state of Israel, I would have used a "Christian nation" rather than the Vatican, but, I don't think such a nation exists.

Can't understand why we shouldn't declare open season on civilians either.  War was so much cleaner when armies sacked cities and slaughtered the civvies. 

Why limit the destructiveness of war?

My personal position on violence against human beings: absolutely positively always prohibited, even for self defense.

That said, some censored facts about so-called Islamist attacks against Israeli "civilians": 

Israel coerces military/public service under threat of incarceration and lifetime public ruination of one's reputation.  

Nightclubs are targets because of the above: every single young Israeli is a future military member strapping a gun to shoot Muslims and boots to kick them into submission. 

Israeli busses are targets because the Israel military uses them as transport for soldiers every day (coercive membership = lots of military members). 

SOP by Zionists and their enablers/sycophants/bribed US public officials (all MSM) is to remove all miltary targets/victims from targets such as busses and night clubs well before news cameras are allowed on scence to fan more Islam hatred.

US Federal law requires any individual or group financed with foreign funds to register as a "foreign interest group".  The law severely limits and controls any meeting between a US government official and such group member.  There are about five such Israeli groups in the USA (ADL, etc), yet they are all immune from the law. 

Just sayin.

A few years ago on Rabbinical Talmuidist Michael Medved's radio show I asked Fox News jerk Fred Barnes (Roman, another version of Rabbinical Talmudist), "Who gives Israel the right to exist?"  He chuckled and replied, "God".  They replayed this hour during the weekend and deleted our exchange.  (Catholic comes from the Latin "catholicus" meaning "universal".  Hence the term "Roman Catholic" translates literally "Roman universal" church, a mutually contradictory/exclusive term...hence my preference for Roman, Rome being the location of its HQ and Pope.)  

Hard to believe any comment could embarrass a Talmudist!

One is clearly a bigger story.  Sorry, a a successful terrorist attack (or false flag) in Bulgaria is way bigger news than light casulties and some trucks getting blown up in a war zone.   It just is. 

 

It doesn't matter if it was Jewish or Russian, or Chinese victims.  One is nearly an everyday occurance, the other isn't.

Michael Hoffman's epic tome "Judaism Discovered" includes an image from a famous Israeli publicaiton (Ha'aretz IIRC).  It is an image of OBL (not detectable that it's doctored) with a Rabbi's black hat.  Indeed, he looks just like any (in)famous, succesful Rabbi.

The point is obvious: Hitler and OBL did more than any other individuals within their lifetime to insulate Rabbinical Talmudism from any and every negative charge, no matter how evil.  Hitler and OBL personify every evil cause of Rabbinical Talmudism (Hitler's Third Reich is just another form of Rabincal Talmudism's racism and bigotry-"chosenites", etc...in Hitler's Third Reich God's chosen people are white Aryan, in Judaism they are Khazars from eastern-central Europe masquerading as O.T. Ioudiaos/Israelites...notice they call themselves "Israelis" not "Israelites"). 

"Holocausianity" wiped off the history books the fact that the current Rabbi's spiritual ancestors, the Saducees and Pharisees (Rabbis), committed the most evil crime in mankind's history, the murder of Jesus Christ.

I consume virtually no MSM, but couldn't help listening to NPR Morning Report a couple years ago.  Interesting full length interview with a man presented as a War College professor.  He states in plain English the following re. the USA targeting/killing civilians: absolutely, positively, when push comes to shove, no USA law prohibits POTUS from killing any number of enemy civilians. 

What a joke listening to outrage from MSM regarding alleged "war crimes" by foreign individuals.  If you think the USA is not pining for and causing war in Syria, you are IMO unmistakably very wrong.

Bodyguards sacrificing themselves for the greater good... the Syrian who blew himself up to try to take out the Syrian government should be given a hero of the nation award when the revolution is over.
