There was just (5 mins ago) an explosion in downtown Jerusalem, and so far speculations are that around 20 people got hurt. I can hear the sirens from my house.

Article from Haaretz

There was also a movement in the extremist Muslim world to start a third intifada around April this year, and I assume this signifies the start of another wave of terror. These guys are making it really hard to be a left-winger in Israel.

I hope no one died. And I'm sorry about the badly-constructed thread, I'm just shaken.

Thoughts?

Yes, I'm OK, I live quite a way from there, thankfully. But still, shit!

And yes, I don't know what to think right now. I was Über left wing until now, and right this moment I just don't know what to think.

Thankfully. I just hope the wounded will make it.

Thanks to everybody who showed support.

Yikes, I hope everyone's okay and you all stay safe.

What's up with the "Hard to be left wing is Israel" ? I'm sorry, I'm young, I'm American, I haven't watched the news in a week.

Thanks man. And in Israel, left and right wing isn't a social-economic stance like in most of the world, but rather your view on the Israeli-Palestinian relations, i.e. (very simplified), Right wing = anti-Palestinian independence, Left wing = for Palestinian independence etc.

Dont let fear sway you. Stand for what you believe. Don't let others tactics of fear shape you into what they want you to be. Be you. Believe in what you feel is right.

I'm american and I'm sure you guys have hardships that I couldn't possibly understand, but we see these countries gets pushed around all the time.

I think the whole Libya thing is a major accomplishment.

You guys (all these oppressed countries) need to start standing up for yourselves and what you believe in. Make change happen.

Calm down guys, it was just a little joke about the fact it happened at a bus stop...

Plus I only said it after I read there were no civilians killed, otherwise I would have held back my humour

Anyway, how old are you? Maybe it's time to move?

I see. Well damn, sounds like the Left wings are having a really tough time. I'd probably be on the left side too.

I don't understand how people can be right wing, though I have several friends who are.

Well, I just spoke to my father, who's a doctor in the Hospital the wounded were taken to, and according to him, there are dead.

Man, truly sorry to hear that people were killed by this. Just stay safe, posters who are there. It's all very easy for people in countries to say 'stand up and fight for what you believe', but that is naive to say the least. I don't really know much about the political situation over there, but do stay safe.

Man, it must be crazy being caught up in the middle of that. I can't imagine. I hope everyone is ok, and I hope the perpetrator is caught.

Now, having said that, I don't know what Israel expects when they've got millions of people penned up in the world's largest prison. In this scenario, terrorist attacks are bound to happen. I don't want to be the instigator of the inevitable shitstorm, but it has to be said.

Not really. If a thread was made for every time Israel turned Gaza into a parking lot, we'd have a whole lot of threads about parking lots. Oh and settlements.

There was a murder of an Israeli family, but it wasn't really an organised attack by a terror cell. Then suddenly Aza started bombing Israel again, last week. So no, no real build up. And this really comes as a surprise, because the last time anything like that happened was in 2004.

Yeah, it sucks big time. It's also a pretty bad time for the instigators to attack, what with everything happening around the globe.

This is awful, and I'm really disappointed it's come to violence again. However, Israeli forces have attacked Palestinians once or twice in the past month, taking civilian lives each time - I feel this hasn't been emphasised here.

It is inevitable, though, unless the overwhelming desire of Israelis and Palestinians for a negotiated solution is answered by their governments. :/

EDIT:

Stop acting like this is a natural disaster, guys. Terrorism is a political phenomenon.

I seriously thought when I first saw the thread title that this was going to be about how you were about to eat a third intifada at Taco Bell, and I was going commend you on having intestines of steel, because three of anything at Taco Bell would give me the ass-blasts.

Epic Neil Patrick Harris avatar by the way. I love that show.

On topic:
I kinda felt like something was going to happen again soon because of everything else that is happening in the Middle East right now. It's a shame I wasn't wrong though.
