Terrorists blew up a bus on Tel Aviv's Shaul Hamelech Street around noon Wednesday.

A total of 23 people were injured the attack, according to police.

One person was severely injured, one moderately and one light to moderately, according to a spokesperson from the city's Ichilov Hospital. The remainder of the casualties were lightly injured or suffering shock.

None were in a life threatening condition, though two have been taken into surgery, the hospital spokesperson said.

Police confirmed that the explosion was a terrorist attack, although said it did not appear to be a suicide bombing and thus police were searching the area for additional explosive devises. The bus was on Dan's number 142 line.

Police arrested a suspect near the Ramat Gan diamond exchange, but he was later found not to be connected to the attack. Police believe at least one terrorist may still be at large in the area, armed with explosives.

Tel Aviv police had added additional officers in the city before this attack due to heightened state of alert in place in light of the IDF operation in Gaza and rocket attacks in recent days, Tel Aviv police chief Yoel Ohayon said at the scene of the terror attack.

He further called on the public to stay alert.

While it appeared the bomb was left on the bus and not the result of a suicide bombing, Ohayon said that at this point in time, "it is very difficult to say exactly what happened."

Palestinian media reports said the Fatah-linked Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade took responsibility for the attack, although that was unconfirmed.

Hashem help us
When will all of this madness end?? The only logical explanation for any of this is that Moshiach must be coming. All evil has underlying good. Hashem must have a greater plan and reasoning for this chaos. May we merit the coming of Moshiach NOW!

American taxpayer dollars are supporting this never-ending (and it never will end as long as there are customers for U.S.-made weapons), senseless killing of both Palestinians and Israelis. When will the citizens of the United States and other countries selling weapons in the Middle East demand that their governments stop?

Wake up
War is a cancer that can spread and kill the entire organism. World powers must stop being desperate about trying to deal with irrational warring parties and band together while still coherent and agree to collectively isolate the warriors of all sides so the conflict withers instead of spreads.

Isolate the war zone, stop incoming support to all parties involved, and blockade the entire region, not just Gaza. I mean Israel too. They have acted like spoiled children to be placated for too many decades. The Palestinians have acted aggressively for far too long.

I hate to say it, but make a virtual ring around the fighters, and don't let it spill out.

War is a cancer that must be isolated and allowed to wither. If left to fight their own fights, they will see the futility of it.
It's time to stop the state-sponsored crimes against humanity. Stop giving military aid to Israel. Stop selling weapons to them and to their neighbors.

If only Am Yisroel would recognize the miracles that are happening every second now we would be celebrating "chanukah " now! for some chizuk watch the video clips of the chayalim dancing and singing at the Gaza border, it will bring you to tears! AM YISROEL CHAI!

YES MOSHIACH MUST COME, so please no more 'rationalizing' that there is a hidden good, and to # 6, yes there are nissim each day, but 4 yiddeshe korbonos is MORE THAN ENOUGH and we cannot justify, accept, condone for ONE SECOND that this had to be, as the Rebbe always screamed & cried that it makes NO LOGICAL SENSE that we are STILL IN GOLUS RL!! WE MUST HAVE TA'ANOS, just as the Frierdiker Rebbe said about the holocaust rl, just as Moshe Rabeinu said "Lama hareiosa l'am hazeh..." we must now be the 'voice of the Rebbe' and scream AD MOSAI AD MOSAI AD MOSAI with no end...does anyone remember the farbrengen during which the Rebbe encouraged the singing of Ad Mosai on & on for close to an hour??? THIS IS THE CALL OF THE HOUR, no more condoning, no more trying to see the good...good is good better is an EMERGENCY!!!!!!!!!
NO MORE JEWISH BLOOD, NO MORE GOLUS...erase it from the program Hashem, we CANNOT take it anymore!!!!!

MOSHIACH--THE ONLY SOLUTION, NOTHING SHORT OF THAT!!!!
Nissim are wonderful under 'normal' circumstances, but with all this pain & loss and constant suffering, we CANNOT & SHOULD NOT tolerate 1 more fraction of a second of golus, PLEASE do NOT 'condone' or 'fargin' Hashem to allow this to happen to our fellow brothers & sisters!!!!
(from someone's comment elsewhere: " MOSHIACH! WE NEED TO TELL THE WORLD THE REBBES WORDS AND MESSAGE.
WE ARE THE LAST GENERATION OF GALUS AND THE FIRST GEERATION OF GEULAH!


My Fellow Jews! My fellow Chassidim! HOW MANY WAKE UP CALLS DO WE NEED???

ITíS TIME.

ITíS TIME TO SAY ENOUGH! AD MOSAI!
ITíS TIME FOR US TO TRULY WANT, AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT GETTING OUT OF GALLUS!
WE MUST UNITE AND PUT OUR DIFFERENCES ASIDE, WE ARE ALL TRULY ONE,
EVERY YID HAS A NESHOMA - CHAILEK E'LOIKA MA'MISH!

IF NOT NOW THEN WHEN?
IF NOT A UNITED WE THEN WHO?

WE ARE CHASSIDIM OF THE REBBE AND HAVE A RESPOSOBILTY TO COMPLTETE THE
REBBES MISSION TO BRING MOSHIACH!

UNITY UNITY UNITY
ACTION ACTION ACTION
GEULAH GEULAH GEULAH"

AMEN!!!!

PLEASE, NO SETTLING FOR LESS, MOSHIACH URGENTLY DESPERATELY IMMEDIATELY NOW, nothing NOTHING else can suffice!!!!

WHAT MORE CAN WE SAY, WHAT CAN WE DO THAT WE HAVEN'T DONE BEFORE???
IF ANYONE HAS IDEAS PLEASE SHARE, MAYBE WE
CAN OPEN A GROUP CHAT & BRAINSTORM??

IT'S GOTTA B SIMPLE, DOABLE, EASY & QUICK BECAUSE WE HAVE TRIED
EVERYTHING AS THE REBBE SAID OVER 20 YEARS AGO EVEN, & THAT IT MAKES
NO SENSE THAT MOSHIACH HAD NOT ALREADY COME!!!!??!!

NOW WHAT DO WE THINK THE REBBE WOULD BE SAYING, RATHER SCREAMING???
WHEN HE SCREAMED ABOUT MIHU Y'HUDI OR YIDDEN GIVING AWAY LAND/ JEWISH
BLOOD, THE HOLOCAUST, PESHA LEAH LAPINE....'HOW LOUD' WOULD HE BE
SCREAMING ABOUT THE HOLTZBERGS, TOLHOUSE, ITAMAR, YOSSI KREIMAN, SHLUCHA MIRA RUS, ALL H'Y'D..unfortunately the list is too long, it goes on & on Hashem Y'rachem Hashem Yishmor!!!!!
And what about those who are 'living' M'siras nefesh suffering for all of Am Yisroel;
Y'B'B'CHAYIM, RUBASHKIN, REB MENDEL, REBBETZIN KRINSKY, anyone who is suffering in 'big' or 'little ways' when a father loves his children he cannot endure seeing them suffer even 1 iota!!!! ,May they all
have a y'shua v'r'fuah shlaima b'korov among all of us who need (& who does not??) and greet MOshiach gezunterheit
& freilicherheit!!!!!!

LET THE NESHOMOS OF SHLUCHA MIRA RUS SHARF & UNBORN CHILD, THE OTHER MALOCHIM
TZADIKIM HASHEM YINKOM DAMAM, BE THE LAST LAST LAST TZADIKIM TO PASS AWAY FOR THE SAKE OF THE ENTIRE WORLD, LET IT NOT BE FOR NAUGHT RL!!!!!

.WOULD NOT THE REBBE BE BEGGING PLEADING WITH HASHEM. WITH A GESHREI FROM 1 END OF THE WORLD TO THE NEXT, do you not think???
NON-STOP till MOSHIACH appears!!!!

WE ARE NOW HIS PHYSICAL HANDS AND FEET AND HEART AND MOUTH
AND VOICE DOWN HERE
SO WHAT DO WE THINK THE REBBE WOULD SAY, DO, SCREAM, WHAT DO WE THINK HE
WOULD WANT US TO SAY, DO, SCREAM....MAYBE NOT IN VOLUME BUT IN
QUALITY, IN QUANTITY OF AS MANY YIDDEN B'ACHDUS AS POSSIBLE

BRINGING MOSHIACH IS RIGHT @ OUR FINGERTIPS; NOT A LONG
DRAWN OUT BATTLE RL, CV!!!! WE CAN NO LONGER AFFORD THAT, WE NEED TO PUT AN END TO THIS MADNESS RIGHT NOW!!!!
WHAT CAN WE DO HERE & NOW TO BRING
IT DOWN HERE L'MATA, THAT WE CAN SEE WITH OUR PHYSICAL EYES, THAT
'HINEI ZEH BA'A, U'KVAR BA' ???!!!!!!!!!!??
CUZ WE AINT SEEN HIM YET WITH OUR PHYSICAL EYES, AND THAT, BOTTOM LINE
IS WHAT WE NEED, UNTIL THEN IT IS UNBEARABLE, UNFATHOMABLE INSANITY, TOTAL CHAOS,
WE HAVE ALL HAD ENOUGH, WOULD YOU AGREE????????

Ta'ake I am remembering a sicha from nun alef or nun bais, the Rebbe's
message particularly to women was that the "AD MOSAI' which comes from
BITTERNESS, LACK OF ACCEPTANCE, but should be permeated with simcha & bitachon
that " Hinei Moshiach Ba'a..." MAY THAT UNFOLD 'TOKEF U'MIYAD MAMASH MAMASH MAMASH, K'HEREF AYIN' !!!!!!
NOTHING LESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

War is not the cancer. People/media who espouse moral relativism like you are the cancer! The "religious values" imposed by the the palestinians are antithetical to Jewish beliefs and practices. Not only should these monsters be expelled from Gaza, but Israel will soon reclaim her true borders and become the source of Light and Truth for the entire world. You want to do something, #4, go study the Sheva Mitzvahs Bnai Noach and teach them. You will discover the true and only path to universal peace and harmony.

First path to universal peace and harmony would be for the 7 countries to get rid of their nuclear weapons.

Nuclear weapons are not for display.
