Jerusalem - Israel's army spokesperson says an Israeli Arab who is a member of Hamas has been arrested for Wednesday's bus bombing in Tel Aviv.

The bombing injured 27 people near Israel's military headquarters and threatened to scuttle efforts to broker a cease-fire to end fighting between Israel and Gaza.

Israeli military spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Avital Leibovich reported on Thursday on Twitter that authorities had arrested the man who planted the bomb on the bus and identified him as an Arab Israeli from the village of Taybeh.

She said he was a member of Hamas.

      There is not peace in the religion of peace.

      It's not the religion that is not peaceful, it's the followers.

    Israel, being a democracy will put this man on trial, knowing Tel Aviv there is probably camera footage of him placing the bomb and thus he will spend the rest of his life in Jail. Palestinians just murder their own and tie the body to cars and drive them around the city. In Gaza they would lynch him and parade the body in the streets to cheering crowds – might I add, the same cheering crowds that celebrated on Spetember 11, 2001. They say we are all created equal, yet I believe God laughs at this statement.

      Don't be nieve man. The guy will definitely get a smack or two, but it beats being killed slowly and having your corpse dragged around your enemy's town.
