The bus was in the West Bank, and I consider any adult Israelis in the West Bank to be military targets, so a bus would probably be an acceptable target in the West Bank but not in Israel proper. In other words:
If adult civilian Israelis are in the West Bank, they are military targets
If adult civilian Israelis are in Israel, they are noncombatants.
In other words, the adults on that bus were military targets in the West Bank but then transformed into noncombatants as soon as they went over the Green Line.
Anyway, we don’t even know that every adult on that bus was a civilian. That bus could have been packed with soldiers for all we know, and that would not be unusual at all.
Unfortunately, no one was hurt or killed, but the bus was shot up pretty bad. I really could care less about these Israelis anymore. I don’t care what happens to them anymore. They make me sick. Just thinking about them makes me want to retch.
I understand that Hamas and Islamic Jihad are seriously reconstructing their organizations in the West Bank and now they are fairly heavily armed.
Can someone please tell me how West Bank Palestinians get any weaponry at all? There is an Israeli border guarded by Israelis around all of the West Bank. How do the weapons get in?
