We've seen it before -- more than 20 dead and hundreds injured as a result of Palestinian Arab terror attacks in Israel within a week of each other. The death of five Americans at Hebrew University on Jerusalem's Mount Scopus brought the pain home to America once again. President Bush remarked, "We are responding to a murder of Americans. We're responding all across the globe to murders of Americans....The war on terror is fought on many fronts. And I just -- I cannot speak strongly enough about how we must collectively get after those who kill...."
And following a wreath-laying on the Hebrew University campus, Daniel C. Kurtzer, U.S. ambassador to Israel, said, "We are very committed in the war against terrorism and, in addition to the support that we give to the State of Israel as a partner in this war against terrorism, we will do all that we can to fight against terrorists wherever they are."
