Terror attack in Jerusalem, 1 woman killed

(updated) A terror attack occurred at 3:05pm at Binyanei HaUma in Jerusalem. One woman was killed in the attack and thirty-nine people have been injured. Two of the injured were pregnant women, and a hospital spokesman said many of the injured are young. The bomb was in a suitcase left near a telephone booth next to the a bus stop across from Binyanei HaUma. Channel 1 has reported there is a suspicion that the bomb came from Hevron. A police spokesman is now saying that this is uncharacteristic of Hamas.

We are a bit shocked here.

God, do not be silent and do not be still, O God
For behold, Your enemies stir, and those who hate You raise their heads
Against Your people they plot cunningly, and they take counsel against Your protected ones.
They said, "Come, let us destroy them from being a nation, and the name of Israel will no longer be remembered.
For they have taken counsel with one accord; against You they form a pact...

Do to them as to Midian; as to Sisera, as to Jabin in the brook Kishon. 
They were destroyed in En-Dor; they were as dung on the ground.
Make them, their nobles, as Oreb and as Zeeb, and as Zebah and as Zalmuna all their princes
Who said, "Let us inherit for ourselves the dwellings of God."
My God, make them like thistles, like stubble before the wind.
As a fire that burns in a forest and as a flame that burns mountains.
So will You pursue them with Your tempest, and with Your whirlwind You will terrify them.
Fill their faces with shame, and they will seek Your countenance, O Lord.
Let them be ashamed and terrified forever; let them be disgraced and perish.
Let them know that You-Your name alone is the Lord, Most High over all the earth

(Psalm 83)
