The remains of Bus 19 were brought to the International Court of Justice at The Hague by ZAKA and the Christian Zionist group, Christians for Israel. Their goal was to show the world what the citizens of Israel were facing on an almost daily basis and that the security fence was necessary to prevent further suicide bomb attacks.
The Christian Zionist group then toured Bus 19 across the United States as a witness to the tragedy of terrorism. Their purpose was fourfold:
1. To show the unvarnished face of terrorism and the war we face in the 21st century.
2. To show that those who would destroy Israel as a nation have formed an alliance against G-d.
3. To focus on Biblical solutions rather than political, military and economic stopgaps.
4. To pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.
At the end of the U.S. tour, Bus 19 was sent to a scrapyard in Frederick, MD. The owner of the scrapyard was a Jewish businessman who knew that this was a special piece of “scrap”. He notified the Rabbi of the community who, in turn notified the Director of the local Jewish day camp. It was at Camp Shoresh that Bus 19 found it’s current and final resting place.
