This Israeli blogger heard a blast from his home in Jerusalem and started posting about it within seconds. It turned out to be at a cafe down the street from him. Ha’aretz reports at least six dead. This came just six hours after another suicide murderer killed seven outside an army base. Hamas is claiming responsibility for both atrocities.
I once heard a bomb go off in Tel Aviv. The sick and stunned feeling, the frantic phone calls– it all comes back to me now. I later met a guy whose mother and sister were killed in that blast.
