After all, they are only Jews going about their daily lives. It isn't like they are Muslim terrorists who have rights that need protecting.
A woman was killed and more than 50 people were wounded by an explosion near Jerusalem's central bus station as the evening rush hour began Wednesday, authorities said.
Mayor Nir Barkat condemned the "cowardly terrorist attack" in which "innocent people were hurt."
The explosion took place in a crowded area with "a lot of civilians and two buses," said Yonatan Yagadovsky, a spokesman for Israel's emergency services.
"Three to four are in critical condition. The rest of the casualties are moderately to lightly injured," he said before the woman's death was announced. The injuries came from both the force of the blast and from flying shrapnel, he said.
Wednesday's explosion was caused by a medium-sized device in a bag left close to the central bus station, Israeli police and medical officials said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the terror attack.
