Burgas Terror Attack: The Casualties and What we Know

The Five Israelis Killed in The Terror Attack on Israel in Burgas, Bulgaria

The Five Israelis Killed in The Terror Attack on Israel in Burgas, Bulgaria

It has been over 24 hours since a suicide bomber – a henious despicable terrorist – blew himself up in Burgas, Bulgaria.

Seven people had died in the attack. Five of which were “his desired target” – Israelis. Israeli citizens aborad on vacation. I guess in his twisted warped costume of a mind, there’s an explanation to this action. Forgive me if I find absolutely no reason or sense in it.

The Israeli casualties are (pictures above from left to right):

  • Kochava Shriki, age: 44. She was pregnant.
  • Amir Menashe, age: 28.
  • Itzik Kolengi, age: 28.
  • Maor Harush, age: 25.
  • Elior Priess, age: 26.

I post their names and their pictures because they are not just “Israeli tourists in Bulgaria” or “Israeli citizens”. They are people with families. With children and/or parents, with friends. Two of the men who died were married. Their wives critically injured in the attack.

So what do we know?

A suicide terrorist was at the airport for several time, with the bomb, awaiting for the Israelis to claim their luggage at the airport and board the bus. Only when they were in concetration of Israelis and then ran towards bus #2 and blew himself up. He did not manage to physically get on the bus before doing so and the estimation is that had he been able to get on the bus, this event would have been much more catastrophical (and let’s not forget how tragic it already is!)

A nearby bus has always caught on fire. Buses were quickly catching on fire and people sitting inside the buses had to jump onto broken glass to survive the fire.

BREAKING: Suicide Terror Attack Against Israeli Tourists in Burgas, Bulgaria

July 18, 2012

Burgas, Bulagaria - Fire near the Airport after Suicide Bomber exploded Israeli Tourism Bus

Approximately at half past 5 pm (GMT +02:00) an Israeli bus near the airport in Burgas, Bulgaria has exploded.

This was shortly after passengers arrived from a flight from Tel-Aviv. The Israeli tourism company that organized the trip had buses outside the airport waiting to take passengers to various hotels.

A suicide bomber got on bus #2, activited his explosive and blew up the front of the bus.

Early reports talk about 5 casulaties and dozens more wounded, some critically!

Some reports at the time of writing this lines mention 7 casualties, however they are still unverified.

Israel’s security forces (both military and civilian), as well as the ministery of foreign affairs, is in contact connection with the Bulgarian authorities. Israeli is preparing to send aid and its own rescue teams to help the victims.

This is, of course, still breaking news!

In the past year Iran, and its’ military daughter-branch Hezbollah – a terror group almost in de-facto control over the state of Lebanon – have taken many attempts to target Israeli citizens on vacation through the world.

Iran and Hezbollah have decieded that it’s okay for them to turn the world into their own sick board game and put citizens of all countries at risk, in their attempt to export terrorism (perhaps, because they fear targeting Israeli on its territory would lead to Israeli retailing similarly to Hezbollah’s attack in July of 2006).

Last January, Israel helped thwart a terror attack in Bulgaria. Terror attacks were also thwarted in Azerbaijan and Thailand.

Last March, a terror attack was thwarted in Georgia, and in India an Israeli Ambaassy’s personnel’s wife was harmed when her car was attacked after dropping her kids at school.

A few days later, an Iranian terror cell in Thailand has accidently triggered its’ bombs, cutting off the legs of one of its’ members in the middle of the street!

Last Month, Kenya has announced it captures terrorists of Iranian decent aiming Israeli target.

Last Week, Cyprus has announced that together with foreign intelligence agencies it captures a Labanese citizen, that entered the state with a Swedish passport, who was gathering information on Israeli tourism spots on the island.

This is just from the recent six month! Behind of all these clear connections to Iran and Hezbollah has been proven by the foreign governments – not just by Israel!!

This if without mentioned previous attempts (for instance in Argentina, today 18 years ago) and other related events (for instance, the Iranian conspiracy to assassinate the Suadi Ambassador in the United States).

Lebanon prevented a condemenation of Thursday’s terror attack

August 20, 2011

And the hits just keep on coming. While the escalation in Israel’s south is still in progress due to the henious terror attack, the Arab / Muslim world once again uses it’s abounding power and strength in it’s ongoing war against Israel.

Lebanon is now acting as the current representative of the Arab world in the United Nations’ Security Council (The Arab world always has a country, in rotation, representing it in the Security Council). Last night, as the Security Council tried to pass a condemnation resolution to this terror attack, Lebanon blocked it – According to the Security Council’s rules all 15 members must sign off on a resolution for it to pass. Lebanon blocked it.

According to the deputy U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Rosemary Discarlo, the condemnation message was a standard message the Security Council used in every terror attack worldwide and the Security Council has used this text many times before.

This was not about the context of the condemnation message, it was about condemning the death of Israel is at all.

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN, Ron Prospor, said in response that this is yet another sad remainder that often the UN is “deaf and blind” when it comes to terror being committed against Israeli citizens.

This is once again a demonstration as to how the UN is motivated by self-interest and is not interested in promoting peace, human rights and justice. It took the Security Council less than 24 hours, without the facts even being cleared up, to adopt Turkey’s decision to condemn Israel for the flotilla incident in May 2010. It took over FOUR months for the Security Council to condemn Syria’s Bashar Assad for the slaughtering of his opposers. To this day, It has not condemned North Korea for its’ offensive against South Korea (that happened on November 23rd, 2010).

I’m sure that if a terror attack against Lebanese citizens would take place, they would demand a condemnation. Well, they probably won’t, seeing as Lebanon is one the biggest terror hubs in the area with Iranian-backed Hezbollah having its’ army, stronger than Lebanon’s Western-backed army, that managed to dissolve the Lebanon government of Saar Hariri (As Israeli Ambassador, Ron Prospor said, Lebanon is “a state controlled by a terrorist organization”). The Arab world never took his inner battles outside. But when Israel was cutting a tree on its’ side of the border and a Lebanese soldier opened fire, which resulted in casualties on both sides, they demanded a Security Council condemnation.

This is yet again an example of hypocrisy and how the majority of power in this world is in the world hands (feel free to once again take a look at freedomhouse.org‘s map of the unfree majority of this world).
