Cairo - The White House on Wednesday condemned a deadly bus bombing in Tel Aviv and said it would help Israel catch those responsible.

At least 23 people were wounded when a bus was blown up on a main street in Tel Aviv after days of military exchanges between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza. Israel’s government called it a terrorist attack.

“The United States will stand with our Israeli allies, and provide whatever assistance is necessary to identify and bring to justice the perpetrators of this attack,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement.

The United States continues to have an “unshakeable commitment” to Israel’s security, Carney said.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in the region trying to broker an end to the hostilities. Clinton said the U.S. “strongly condemns” the bombing, which she called a “terrorist attack.”

What exactly do you mean when you say that Morsi YS"H is the "Main broker". Is this the same Morsi who said that Israel must stop its aggression against Gaza and is this the same Morsi who is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, as is Chamas?

This bus bombing should be the green light for Israel to go full speed ahead and take care of them once and for all.
May Hashem bless and protect all the yidden in IS and give extra strength to the soldiers who are willing to put their lives on the line for Am Yisrael!

This really shows a good faith effort on the part of the Palestinians when asking for a ceasefire or a peace agreement.

They condemn the bombing as a terrorist attack, but what about every rocket that lands in Israel? They want to have it both ways--not to condemn it as terrorism, so it doesn't make the Arabs look bad, and not to call it a war, so that Israel doesn't have a right to defeat Gaza.

Come one Hillary, you can do better than "a terrorist attack" that is so used and boring. Reach into your big words, find something more exciting you can use. Israel is so used to terrorist attacks. That has been going on for a long time now. Maybe you can say "this was a viscous and malicious act of war promised and delivered by terrorists who are derailing the peace process. Israel has a undeniable right to defend themselves and counter these offensive acts of terrorism and WE and other Humanitarian countries stand strong and firm in our support of Israel in their defense and safety. No country and no people deserve to live under the fear of a barrage of fire, or the loss of their lives for just going out and living their daily routine! " Yes, that sounds much better.
