It appears that yet another war, or at the very least, wave of violence will roll through Israel and Palestine, the consequences of which are difficult to imagine.

With American wars permeating the middle east, elite instigated ‘revolutions’ rolling through the region, and a new, illegal and un-constituional American / UN war against Libya, it is hard to predict what will happen next. The catastrophe in Japan only adds fuel to an already volatile global situation.  How much crisis and war can the system handle around the world?

In our collective memories, we at the DailyTeaParty.com had not seen a news cycle so replete with crisis and war.  The Freedom Movement and Tea Party should be vigilant as always.  We know that during trying times governments always try to take rights away.

We hope that the members Freedom Movement have educated themselves  and find it valuable to physically hold silver or gold as insurance in case of an accelerating currency devaluation, which from our perspective is a real possibility.

We hope that this article finds all of you well, prepared and at peace.

All of the casualties have been evacuated to the Hadassah Hospital in Ein Karem.

The blast could be heard throughout Jerusalem and blew out the windows of bus No. 74, traveling from Givat Shaul to Har Homa. The explosive device was apparently hidden in a bag next to a telephone pole.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that Israel will react firmly, responsibly and wisely to a recent wave of Palestinian violence.

“The government, the Israel Defense Forces, and the Israeli public has an iron will to defend the country and its citizens,” Netanyahu said before boarding a flight to Russia.

“Israel will act firmly, responsibly and wisely to preserve the quiet and security that prevailed here over the past two years,” he assured.

Benjamin Netanyahu issued his statement just hours after a bomb killed a 59-year-old woman at a crowded bus stop in Jerusalem. Earlier Wednesday, southern Israel was bombarded by Palestinian rocket and mortar fire.

“We have established a clear policy regarding security issues – a resolute reaction to every attempt to hurt our citizens and systematic, resolute preventative steps against terror,” he said.

Netanyahu said he spent the evening huddled with top security officials to discuss the situation.

He spoke to reporters just before boarding a flight to Russia, where he said he would discuss Israel’s security situation with that country’s leaders.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak, in reaction to the bombing, threatened retaliation against Hamas.
