Explosive-laden truck explodes at Erez Crossing; no Israeli casualties
22 May 2008 
A Palestinian suicide bomber blew up an explosives-laden truck on the Palestinian side of the Erez Crossing on the Israel-Gaza Strip border early Thursday morning (22 May). The blast was heard 30 kilometres (18 miles) away, causing damage to homes in Netiv Ha’asara. The driver was the only casualty in the attempted attack.

At a meeting with French FM Bernard Kouchner, Israeli FM Tzipi Livni said, “The attempted attack this morning at Erez Crossing Point should demonstrate to the international community that, while it demands that Israel take care of the situation in Gaza and open the crossing points, Hamas, which controls Gaza, is not interested in improving the lives of the population and doesn’t take even minimal responsibility for Gazan residents. The international community must continue to delegitimize Hamas and to support the peace process taking place with pragmatic elements.”

  1. Hamas – voted in “democratically” whatever that means over there.
    Deal with it, voters.

    We have Krudd! ’nuff said:(

  2. For all the money and efforts that the west has invested in the so called “Palestinians”, raw sewage flows through the streets of Gaza (both the literal kind and the Hamas kind) not unlike the status of their minds. And the Schmucks in the UN can only howl about how Israel must open it’s boarders with Hamastan? Since when is does any country have to open it’s boarders to it’s mortal enemies at the behest of the Pud Pullers in the UN?
