Yesterday, the bomber of the Jerusalem bus officially became a suicide bomber.

Hamas said that 19-year old Abed al-Hamid Abu Srour was a member of the group, announcing that "his martyrdom proves that the Jerusalem Intifada is ongoing and that attempts to stop it failed."

The terror group reported that scores of youths in Bethlehem marched to the family home of Abu Srour to celebrate..

A Palestinian cartoonist drew a picture of a woman handing out candies in front of the bombed-out bus.

Hamas media celebrated the return to the glory days of "martyrdom operations" as well. Al Resalah has an article fondly remembering attacks such as the massacre at the Park Hotel "which was packed with hundreds of Jews celebrating Passover" and the Dophinarium disco massacre.

It should be recalled that only a couple of months ago, a popular music video was released that encouraged the return to bus bombings, "The Roof of the Bus Goes Flying," with lyrics like:
Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. Oh bearer of good tidings, wrap the explosive belt around your waist. The story of the Intifada will only be told when the roof of a bus goes flying.

Oh Martyrdom-seeker, heed the call of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, make the blast of the bomb reach further and further. Make Netanyahu flee in shame, unable to count the number of casualties. Scatter them all over, strike fear among their people. Show no mercy to their settlers. Dispatch them to Hell. Nothing awaits them but the grave.

Step up and take revenge on behalf of your religion. Blow it up – may you be successful. Oh you who wears the explosive belt, your head is held high, when we bring the good tidings.

Oh Martyrdom-seeker, put on your explosive belt, and blow it up. This is your finest hour. How sweet are your bombs and explosives. Blow up the shameless Zionist.
This song is now being sung at gatherings that have been celebrating the terror attack.

Abu Srour's Facebook page shows that he became radicalized two years ago, when he started changing his cover photo to show terrorists.

Before that he had photos of people smoking pot and slightly risque jokes.

But he clearly identified with Hamas specifically over time.

Here he is indoctrinating the next generation.

His last cover photo was of Yehya Ayyash, Hamas' master bombmaker known as "the Engineer." The video celebrating bus bombings was released on the anniversary of his death.

Incitement directly leads to terror.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
