Alaa Abu Idheim, 26, was a bus driver who lived with his family on School Street on Jbel (Mountain in Arabic) Mukhaber, a high piece of ground overlooking Jerusalem to the south of the city.
He drove for a bus company that specialised in driving schoolchildren and students. Israeli police were investigating reports Abu Idheim had driven students from the yeshiva he attacked on Thursday night.

Delusional State Department Watch
* The whole State Department should be sacked. Most of all the ever more ridiculous Condi Rice:
Question of the Week: Should the U.S. Engage Hamas in the Peace Process Between the Israelis and Palestinians?
Secretary Rice arrived in the Middle East today to discuss the future of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas suspended the talks to protest the Israeli incursions into Gaza
(IsraelNN.com) Israeli security forces have razed the home of the murderous terrorist who murdered eight Merkaz HaRav yeshiva students. He lived in Jabel Mukabar, a neighborhood just east of Jerusalem’s East Talpiyot neighborhood.
His family set up a mourners’ tent outside the ruins, and hung Hamas flags all around it.
Police denied reports that the murderous terrorist had once worked for Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav. However, he was a driver who often transported children and others, and there were reports that he had occasionally been hired by the yeshiva. His last trip was Thursday evening to Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav, where his van was found after the attack with ammunition inside.
Hamas placed children on rooftops as human shields preventing Israeli attack on Qassam workshops and warehouses. As usual: Where’s the outrage in the mainstream media and from human rights organizations for this war crime by Hamas?
* You gotta give it to the Pal’s: they know how to play the Western media like no other:
Thanks to ZIP for the vid
* The Taliban, these fearless Afghan mental toss tycoons, figured it all out by themselves:
Imam Al Waleed bin Bush
“We see the publication of cartoons and insult of the Holy Koran as part of the Crusaders’ war,” the Taliban said in a statement posted on the group’s Web site.
Tea with Terrorists
* Sucking up to demented terrorist despots has repercussions:

UNITED NATIONS (AP) â€” For the second time in two months, Libya on Thursday blocked the U.N. Security Council from condemning violence and unrest in the Middle East.
In closed-door discussion among the 15-nation council’s diplomats, Libya insisted the statement should be “balanced” by including condemnation of Israeli actions in Gaza, a Libyan U.N. representative said after the meeting.
She got away, this time at least…
“Mohammed Hamid, you are, in my judgement, dangerous”Â
*Â Of course he is not an ‘extremist’-, that’s just the usual BBC bullshit. Hamid is simply a ‘good Muslim’ who takes his religion seriously.
Mohammed Hamid, 50, of east London, organised secret training camps, one of which was attended by the four failed suicide bombers of 21 July 2005.
Hamid was jailed for seven-and-a-half years – but told he would not be released until he had reformed.
