At least 20 people were killed in yesterday-s suicide bombing on a crowded bus carrying Orthodox Jews home from prayer at Jerusalem-s Western Wall. Among the dead are five Americans, three of them children, in the deadliest attack since Israelis and Palestinians declared a cease-fire and agreed to implement President Bush-s "road map- for peace. Although Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas has cut ties with the militants who have claimed responsibility, President Bush has called on the Palestinian Authority to -dismantle and destroy- them. One Israeli cabinet member says there is -no option- but -an iron fist,- and there are calls for completely closing the West Bank and Gaza. We ask authorities on both sides if diplomacy still has a chance.
