Second Israeli Wounded in Jerusalem Blasts Dies

(Times of Israel) Tadese Tashume Ben Ma'ada, 50, who was critically injured in an explosion Wednesday at a bus stop at the entrance to Jerusalem, died on Saturday. Ben Ma'ada immigrated to Israel from Ethiopia 21 years ago, and left a wife and six children. Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion said he had met Ben Ma'ada the evening before the bomb attack at the inauguration of a new community center for the Ethiopian community. "In one moment [the terror attack] ended a human story - a story about Zionism, about aliyah, about the love of the Land of Israel, about the love of Jerusalem. And in a symbolic and tragic way, this happened on the day of Ethiopian Jews' holiday of Sigd." Immigration and Absorption Minister Pnina Tamano-Shata said, "The bitter enemy will not defeat us, and we will not allow any evildoer and cursed terrorist to break us as a nation."
