All Palestinian Factions Justify Jerusalem Bus Bombing

(MEMRI) On April 18, 2016, a bomb went off on a bus in Jerusalem. Thus far, Palestinian Authority officials have issued no condemnation of the attack. All Palestinian factions have justified the attack. Fatah claimed it was a natural response to Israel's actions, and Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), and other factions welcomed the attack and expressed enthusiastic support for it. Additionally, many gloating posters and cartoons were posted on social media. A cartoon by Gaza cartoonist Omayya Joha shows a Palestinian woman distributing sweets following the attack, saying: "Blessed be the hands of the one who blew up the bus this afternoon...and what you have seen is only a drop in the ocean."
