    Four people, including a young pregnant woman, were killed and at least six more were wounded when Hamas terrorists opened fire at a bus stop in Jerusalem Thursday morning, according to police. The terror attack took place after Hamas had promised to abide by a temporary ceasefire.

    At around 7:40 a.m. local time, two Palestinian gunmen jumped out of a vehicle at the bus stop near a main entrance to the capital city and fired at the people waiting for the bus, The Times of Israel reported. The terrorists were shot dead at the scene after two off-duty soldiers and an armed civilian returned fire. The Shin Bet security agency said the terrorists were brothers and members of Hamas who had previously been jailed for terrorist activity.

    Surveillance footage showed the two Hamas members jump out of their vehicle and immediately start shooting into the crowd at the bus stop. Within seconds, three people surround the terrorists and return fire, killing them at the scene. The terrorists used an M-16 rifle and a handgun and police found a large amount of ammunition when they searched the brothers' vehicle, according to The Times of Israel.


    Livia Dickman, a 24-year-old woman who was pregnant with her first child, was declared dead at the scene of the terror attack, while Ashdod rabbinical judge Elimelech Wasserman, 73, and Hannah Ifergan, a woman in her 60s, were declared dead at the hospital. Two others taken to the hospital were in serious condition, three were listed as in moderate condition, and a sixth was in good condition, according to the Magen David Adom ambulance service.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shared his condolences with the family members of those who were killed in the attack and praised the quick actions of Israelis who took down the terrorists.

    "My wife Sarah and I send our condolences from the bottom of our hearts to the families of those murdered in the attack in Jerusalem. We all pray for the peace of the wounded. The quick reaction of two fighters and a civilian who eliminated the terrorists prevented an even more serious attack. I salute them," Netanyahu said in a statement.

    "All Hamas terrorists are mortal - in Jerusalem, Gaza, Judea and Samaria - everywhere," he added. "I appreciate the fact that both fighters and the civilian acted quickly on the ground. The government headed by me will continue expanding the distribution of weapons to citizens. This is a measure that proves itself time and time again in the war against murderous terrorism."

    Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack, calling the terrorists "jihad-waging martyrs." The older brother was jailed from 2010 to 2020 for planning attacks in coordination with terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip, and the younger brother was jailed in 2014 for undisclosed terror activity, Shin Bet said. After the shooting at the bus stop, Israeli police said officers arrested six of the terrorists' family members, including their parents, during a raid on their home.

    The terror attack in Jerusalem came on the 55th day of the war between Israel and Hamas, which began after the brutal October 7 Hamas attack on Israel, which killed over 1,200 people. Hamas' latest attack on civilians also came during a temporary ceasefire, which Israel and Hamas leaders agreed to last week to negotiate the release of hostages taken into Gaza by the terrorists.


    Hamas also violated the temporary ceasefire after attacking Israel Defense Forces (IDF) troops in multiple locations, the IDF said on Tuesday.

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
