The death of 8 and wounding of 60 in 1995 is considered one of
Islamic Jihad´s "great achievements."
On April 9, 1995, Khaled Mohammed Khatib rammed his vehicle into
Israeli Egged Bus No. 36 in Kfar Darom. The collision set off the
bomb in his car, killing seven Israelis, an American college student,
and wounding another 60 passengers.
Islamic Jihad celebrated the attack, which they called a “great
achievement,” reported the Challah Hu Akbar blog, who translated the
original Arabic source into English.
The terrorist’s family said they were proud of his actions and
Islamic Jihad released a video celebrating the attack.
Islamic Jihad claims that that the attack killed 10 “Zionist
Soldiers,” the blog noted.
Alisa Flatow, one of victims of the attack, was a student at Brandeis
University, spending a year of study in Jerusalem at the time.
The New York Times quoted her father as saying, “Alisa loved the
Jewish people, the Torah and the land of Israel… She believed in the
good inherent in all people. She believed she was safe in Israel and
no one could dissuade her from that belief… Her lasting contribution
to the people of Israel is that her organs were donated for the
saving of lives in need.”
