Interesting reactions from Palestinians on this horrific terror attack. Makes you wonder : will some of the leading Arab student groups on college campuses across America that have to date taken pro-Ba'athist/pro-Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine positions "curse" the homicide bomber or will they continue to support groups that excuse away mass murder?

Suicide Bomb Blast Tears Through Jerusalem Bus

"I felt the earth shaking, it was like an earthquake," said Raed Shweiki, 23, a Palestinian from east Jerusalem who was pumping gasoline barely 12 yards from the bus at the Sonol Liberty Bell Park service station. "I saw the glass from the windows of the bus flying toward us -- and arms and legs. I ran."

Osama Juaba, 31, who was filling a taxi with diesel at the next pump said he was splattered with bits of flesh: "I heard a boom and pieces of flesh flew on me and the taxi."

Palestinian officials condemned the attack and the Palestinian gas station employees, who were visibly shaken and taken by ambulance to a hospital, cursed the bomber.

The Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, the militant group that associates itself with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement, claimed responsibility for the attack and named the bomber as Mohammed Zool, 23, from a village near Bethlehem.
