(Updated 1:16 PM)

What started out as reports of a gas canister explosion in an Eilat "Lachmim" bakery is now being confirmed as a Palestinian Suicide bomber attack. At 9:25 AM Israel time, the terrorist exploded at the busy commercial district and MDA sources claim the scene is particularly...difficult.

There are 3 confirmed dead (in addition to the terrorist) and a number of wounded.

Terror groups taking credit for the attack include the Islamic Jihad and the Fatah's Al-Aksa Martyr brigade (this group is the #1 favorite of the United States State Department, as the head of Fatah is PA president, Mohammed Abbas) Sources: JPost and YNET.

Update: Terrorist's name was Mohammed Faisel Al-SakSak, part of the Fatah Al-Aksa terrorist brigade.

The Shin-Bet is investigating.

Wonderful.

So, for our daily terror roundup; Qassam rockets continue to fall near Sederot and Ashkelon (I'm assuming you didn't forget about them, right?), Rock and molotov coktail throwing continues on the roads of Yehuda vShomron, and a terrorist blows himself up in Eilat.

Any questions for Prime Minister Olmert or Defense Minister Peretz?

What you probably didn't know is that the government is in the planning stages of (temporary) evacuation of the Israeli communities around the Gaza strip. Don't worry...they say it's only in the planning stage...and only temporary.

I agree with the temporary part; just as the temporary evacuation of Gush Katif.

We'll be back.

G-d forbid any more "evacuations" even move along in the planning stages. Makes me sick to my stomach, to say the least.

This is outright surrender. They don't even have the "outside the Green Line" excuse for this...

Why can't the gov't send the army into Gaza with orders to simply kill any paly with a weapon?

Give them 24 hours to go in, wreak some havoc, and come out. Every time there is an attack on Israel, give the army another 24 hour kill permit. Make the palys realize that terrorism will only result in a lot dead palys. It's the only language they understand.

Michael: Why is that outright surrender any more than the Disengagement? Or this past summer's war? Or our negotiations with terrorists?

BTW: here's the link about the next "retreat". Channel 2 and Walla reported it.

This type of response to terror is really the best way to lose a struggle.

But that is only for natural struggles, I guess. We have God's promise, and so I know we will succeed in the end.

I just wish it were more obvious sometimes...:) But I guess that is up to God.

Amen to that.

Jameel, you do have a point. Perhaps I should have said simply that my patience for the current gov't has evaporated.

I've always thought that talking to the scum is pointless, and now I'll admit that leaving Gaza was a tragic mistake.

So why won't the gov't just let the army punish those responsible?
