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.

Remember to Forget Amalek

Even with Haman and his ten sons hanged, his spiritual descendants reappeared today to murder more innocents, this time by blowing up a bus stop in Jerusalem.  One person dead, and over fifty more are being treated in Jerusalem hospitals.

We were still reeling from the bloodthirsty murders in Itamar last Sabbath, where the Fogel family lost both parents and three of their beautiful young children.

Get Into the Light and Stand in It

Whether or not you can stand Glenn Beck’s domestic politics, he is one of the few American media outlets to cover what’s actually going on in Israel. Check out this video. Whenever Jewish children are the victims of premeditated murder by Arabs, most media outlets ignore it; there is no coverage. If the crime is so prominent that it can’t be covered up, some (like CNN) consistently try to blame the victims, while others attempt to justify as “natural” the private and public celebrations of the majority of Arabs in Gaza and elsewhere. These mainstream outlets distort the news to suggest that there is some sort of “escalating cycle of violence,” as though there were a moral equality between the Israelis, who mourn accidental collateral damage, and the majority in Gaza, who pass out celebratory candies in the streets with news of each premeditated murder. Compare these videos and see just how differently the same “news” can be fed to you!
