An Antidote to the Nonsense

Inspiring video that shows how we Jews view Israel, our history, and particularly Israel’s place in the modern middle east.  Anyone who thinks that Israel is being unfair to the region’s non-Jewish populations, or who imagines that any of this land belongs to so-called “Palestinians,” should watch this video, if only to try to understand how we Jews see the situation.  It wont change anybody’s mind of course, since rationality seems to have vanished from the partisan debates; but it can at least help one side understand how the other side perceives reality.

Israel’s medical experiences with the casualties of war and from nurturing the victims of terrorism make Israeli doctors and therapists natural leaders in Haiti after the  earthquake.  This video documents an amazing story, a professional dancer is back on the stage despite one prosthetic leg and the other damaged.  Truly inspirational video for the disabled, for medicine, and for Haiti.

Itamar Murderers Arrested

A month after members of Fogel family — parents Udi (36) and Ruth (35), and their children Yoav (11), Elad (4) and Hadas (3 months) — were brutally murdered in their home in Itamar while they were sleeping, the Commander of IDF forces overseeing the Shomron Regional Brigade, to which Itamar belongs, has announced that the IDF has caught two of the killers in the nearby “Palestinian” village of Awarta.

Col. Nimrod Aloni also stated that the motivation of terror groups in the West Bank to execute attacks against Israeli civilians is still high.

Video From Rabbi and Mrs. Moshe Goldsmith, First Family of Itamar

Rabbi and Mrs. Moshe Goldsmith are the Mayor and First Lady of Itamar.  In this heartfelt video, they express their gratitude for the support of the Jewish community around the world in the wake of the horrific murders.  They discuss their plans to enhance security in Itamar, including acquiring security cameras and fences.

The recent terrorist murders in Itamar of Rabbi Ehud and Ruth Fogel and three of their young children make us realize we here in the USA must strengthen the Itamar community and support the three surviving Fogel children.

To learn more about how you can help the city of Itamar, visit Friends of Itamar.  To contribute financial support to the surviving Fogel children and other innocent victims of terrorism in Israel, please visit OU’s Fund for the Victims of Terror.

Understanding Middle East Security

Most folks who watch the news don’t have a clear understanding of military tactics, nor of the geography of the West Bank.  They know Israel is a small country, overshadowed by the Golan Heights, but they don’t understand how particular hills and valleys in the West Bank convey safety or the lack thereof, nor what that implies for negotiations over borders.  This video, despite the histrionic tone of its overbearing announcer, is actually educational.
