On display at the Anti-terrorism rallies was the Israeli Egged bus number 19 that was destroyed by a “Palestinian” Arab suicide bomber. T he Egged bus number 19 normal bus route starts at Hadassah Ein Kerem and makes its way through the center of Jerusalem to Hadassah Hospital and the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus. On January 29, 2004, Jerusalem Police Chief Mickey Levy said a “Palestinian” Arab suicide bomber was seated in the back of the bus, when shortly before 9:00 A.M. at the corner of Gaza and Arlozorov streets in Jerusalem he detonated the explosives. The bus was torn apart by the blast which blew the back half of the roof into the air, blowing every window out of the bus and turned the vehicle into a twisted wreck. As a result of this act of terrorism 11 people were murdered, 50 people were wounded of which 13 of them seriously.
Claiming responsibility for the attack was both the Fatah-related Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades and Hamas which identified the bomber as 24-year-old “Palestinian” policeman from Bethlehem Ali Yusuf Jaara.
