Terrorist attack in Jerusalem
There was a terrorist attack earlier today in Jerusalem - a Palestinian from east Jerusalem drove a bulldozer (which he drove as a part of his job working on the construction of the light rail in the city) into a couple of city buses, some cars, and pedestrians on Jaffa Rd., near to the old central bus station. At least 3 or 4 people were killed, and dozens were injured. I was sitting here in the National Library reading "Joseph and Aseneth" (a pseudepigraphic work about Aseneth, the wife of Joseph) when I checked the news and saw the first reports of the attack. Scary and unnerving. May it be the last one.
