A Moral Test

Today, two brave Israelis were seriously wounded while stopping a suicide bomber. They didn't use their guns. Critics of London's cops are asking them to emulate these brave men - laying down life and limb for the critics' principles.

A suicide bomb attack at the entrance to the central bus station in Beersheba wounded at least twenty people Sunday morning.

Two of the wounded, both security guards who kept the bomber from entering the bus station, were in critical condition and were evacuated to the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba.

According to witnesses, the suicide bomber attempted to enter the Beersheba bus station. The security guards at the site reportedly saw a young Arab man carrying a backpack who aroused their suspicions.

When the two security guards called on the bomber to stop, he detonated his explosives outside the station, in a less crowded area.

Initial investigations suggested that the bomber had intended to blow up at the Soroka Medical Center, Channel 2 reported.
