As we know, eight teenage students at the Merkaz Harav Yeshiva in west Jerusalem were killed late Thursday and another nine wounded when an Arab from east Jerusalem entered the building and started firing, before he was shot dead by police.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, the European Union and individual member states, Canada and Japan were among those condemning the massacre by a Palestinian gunman, while Bush assured Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of full US support.
Yet an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council failed to agree on a condemnation of the attack.
The EU's current president, Slovenia, said, "These vicious acts of horror are totally unacceptable and there can be no justification for them."
I condemn in the strongest terms this ruthless terrorist attack on Israeli youth," EU External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner said.
"Killing innocent citizens whether they are Israeli or Palestinian is not serving any purpose."
EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana telephoned Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni "to condemn the attack" and offer his condolences to the victims' families and Israeli leaders.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel was "devastated" by the attack and condemned it "in the strongest terms," a government spokesman said. She had phoned Olmert to ask that he convey her condolences to the families of the victims.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy condemned what he called a "cowardly and barbarous" act, his spokesman said.
Greece "expresses its indignation and categorically condemns the terrorist attack on a religious school in Jerusalem," a spokesman for Foreign Minister George Koumoutsakos said.
Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi also condemned the "cowardly" attack.
"Japan strongly condemns the terrorist shooting attack in Jerusalem," Foreign Minister Masahiko Komura said.
And what was the response of the Arabs to this cowardly and dispicable act of terror, this murder of innocent school children?
Hamas yesterday claimed responsibility.
"The Hamas movement announces its full responsibility for the operation. The movement will release the details at a later stage," an official said.
Hundreds of Palestinians poured into the streets of Gaza City as news of the attack spread, firing automatic rifles into the air in celebration.
Several hundred more celebrated in the northern town of Jabaliya.
What the world condemns, the Arabs celebrate.
The Bush Stae Dept has all but made the current escalation of the Arab war to destroy Israel inevitable.
Rice arrived in Israel in a week marked by Fatah-incited violence against Israel and Israelis both in Judea and Samaria and within sovereign Israel. On Monday a group of hundreds of Arabs in Jerusalem threw rocks at Jewish motorists. A dozen Arabs nearly lynched two municipal inspectors when they stoned the inspectors' vehicle and began shattering their windshield with a metal pipe.
Outside Hebron, an Israeli was attacked by yet another mob .
In another incident, Fatah forces murdered one Palestinian and seriously wounded an Israeli outside of Hebron. The US-financed group claimed that its operatives lured the Israeli to the scene.
In Ramallah and Hebron, thousands of Fatah members rallied in support of Hamas and its launching of hundreds of missles against the Western Negev. Israeli Arabs also escalated their verbal and physical assaults on Israel and Israeli Jews in a series of demonstrations which culminated in a mass demonstration in support of Hamas which took place on Tuesday evening in Umm el Fahm.
In her joint press conference with Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, Rice acted as though nothing notable had transpired over the past two weeks.
Rice announced that the US will be giving $148 million to UNRWA in 2008 - this despite the fact that UN refugee camps in Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, Judea and Samaria and Jordan are all hotbeds of terror recruitment, training and indoctrination.
She ignored Hamas's widespread popularity in Palestinian society, called for Israel to step up its humanitarian aid to Gaza, and defended the Palestinians as victims.
As she put it, "Hamas … in effect, holds the people of Gaza hostage in their hands."
Ignoring Abbas's open support for Hamas against Israel, Rice claimed that he had agreed to return to the negotiating table and insisted that the only way to end violence is to establish a Palestinian state.
She then intimated that in the midst of Fatah's open support for Hamas's Iranian-supported open war against Israel, she expected Israel to take action to demolish the communities its citizens have built in Judea and Samaria claiming, "We do need to have improvements on the ground. We do need to have the parties meeting their roadmap obligations."
On the one hand, Bush condemns the viscous murder by Arab criminals, and on the other, Rice demands that Israel make further concessions, in the middle of an escalating war, to the enemy.
Jews, wake up.
America is your enemy.
