This week’s terrorist bombing at a bus stop in Jerusalem occurred within hours of a visit by a delegation of U.S. House members, including Minnesota Republican Chip Cravaack.
Cravaack, who returned from Israel on Friday, said his delegation was twice taken down the same road where the bombing occurred  – once before and once after Wednesday's explosion that killed a woman and wounded dozens of other people.
He said the first pass came when his group was on its way to an airport security briefing. On the return trip, the lawmakers saw the aftermath of the explosion. Though it was only a few hours afterwards, he said life had returned to normal.
“Life just goes on in Israel,” said Cravaack, on his first overseas trip as a congressman. “We’d have yellow tape around there for weeks. These guys, it’s just like another day in Israel.”
