There has been another attempt to create problems for the proposed peace and current political changes within both the Israeli government and
Palestinian Authority. A bomb exploded near an assembly of Israeli Jewish worshippers near a Jewish shrine, the tomb of Joseph. No one has taken
responsibility for the blast which blew out apartment and car windows as well as scorched the fronts of many stores.
JERUSALEM (AP) -- A car bomb exploded early Thursday near a Jewish shrine in the West Bank as hundreds of Israeli worshippers prayed there, causing
no injuries but damaging nearby Palestinian homes and underscoring the vulnerability of the Mideast truce declared last month.
It was not clear whether the explosives went off prematurely or whether the Joseph's Tomb shrine was even the target. The blast went off several
hundred yards from the shrine, on the outskirts of the Palestinian city of Nablus.
The explosion blew out apartment and car windows and scorched storefronts. There was no claim of responsibility

Why were there Israeli Jewish worshipers there. After the infitada started, Isrealie Military had evacuated the area and the Israeli Military barred
worshippers from assembling at Joseph's tomb.
They are only allowed when they have army escorts so what were they doing there then?
