PLA must be running out of suicide bombers, they used do this every few days or every week, now this is the first time in two months.

i still don't get how a plane can manage to hit a building around takeoff, aren't there supposed to be no tallish buildings around an airport, atleast its not terrorism as far as we know:

You are mistaken, you claim "Israelis responded with a chopper strike killing 6" but even the article you linked states:

Gaza air strike
Thursday's blast occurred shortly after Israel launched a helicopter strike in Gaza, killing six people and injuring 14, Palestinian security and medical sources told CNN.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said that among those killed in the air strike was the target of the raid, Maklad Hamid. The IDF said he was a leader of the Al Quds Brigade, the military wing of Islamic Jihad.

The attack marked the first targeted killing by Israel since October.
Coincidence? Israelis havent done assassination since October, and Palestinians haven't done any bombing since October...

It was the first suicide bombing in Israel since Oct. 4th, according to the article he linked to:

The assault was the first suicide bombing in Israel since an October 4 attack in Haifa. That incident killed 21 people.
And I specified targetted assassination, not any other act of aggression Israel may have done during this time

Sad to see these Israel using Christmas as a cover to launch strikes.

As sad as it is to see a suicide bombing, but it is no surprise.

For the past 3-4 days I have wanted to post a thread about the roadmap violations of the Israelis...

Do they think they can go in and tear up whole villages during a cease fire and murder 7 or 8 people whenever they want?

I "almost" agree with the actions of that suicide bomber today... Israel needs to follow some LAWS also... If they don't respect LAWS then why should the Palestinians??

The sad thing is people will forget about Israel's aggression during these times and a couple years from now when people are left wondering: 'hey, what happened to that road map to peace?' there will be revisionists stumbling over eachother to assert Palestinians have done everything in their power to undermine the initiative while the Israelis have done nothing but promote it. Maybe they'll even throw in some token phrase like 'they were offered 99% of their land for the first time and they refused it' for good measure. I'm sure you see the parallel I'm drawing here.

Will it be terrorists actions such as this which Ariel Sharon will cite when implementing his new plan to "separate from Palestinians", while ignoring the Israeli provocation? In the latest Nation Geographic magazine they had an interesting article which had a map showing the location of a new wall rumored to be built, and if your thought the current wall was bad (in terms of going beyond the green line) you'll be fumed when you see the lines for the new wall- which will wind up annexing about half of the west bank. The map shows this wall as an 'anticipated extension' so it leaves me wondering if this has any correlation to Sharon's 'separation plans'.

aggression.. hah! the palestinians have militant leaders responsible for countless civilian deaths, intentional civilian deaths and yet if they are targeted and killed as justified by international law against terrorism and inhumanity, their response is that they will kill more civilians:p

geee..... if we're not allowed to kill civilians, we'll kill civilians:p

and when you see a suicide bomber in the news, thats only because that one was a success, it doens't mean there weren't other attacks that were thwarted. or other attacks of different kinds that are less exciting news, or failed.
