Har Nof Jerusalem Beheadings, an Attempted Cover-Up?

י״ח לחודש התשעי תשע״ה

On December 2, the following statement was released:
RABBI DAVID BAR-HAYIM CONDEMNS "HAR NOF GATE" 
Machon Shilo's Rabbi David Bar-Hayim has requested to publicize his condemnation of the government's deliberately covering up the fact that the Arab terrorists who perpetrated the Har Nof massacre decapitated two of the victims, HASHEM yikom damam. Rabbi Bar-Hayim has expressed outrage that the government and media have joined forces in preventing Jews from knowing the grisly nature of these barbaric murders in order to preserve "industrial quiet." 
The following article on Arutz 7 makes reference to the decapitation of two of the victims of the Har Nof massacre: 

Arutz 7: Father of Murdered Druze Officer Visits Har Nof Synagogue
Moving meeting at synagogue where Zidan Seif was murdered by Arab terrorists as he tried to stop attack, details of massacre given.

Hezki Ezra, Ari Yashar, November 27, 2014

"They heard the shots from outside and they stopped here. Zidan's shots confused them and they stopped here, they could have continued. ...They (the victims - ed.) were praying, no one had a weapon. At a certain point they realized they couldn't continue, the two of them went out of the door quickly towards the stairs," continued the witness.

Relating the moment when Seif was murdered, the witness added "Zidan was behind the wall there, Zidan hit him, but he (the terrorist) while continuing coming down the stairs managed to shoot another bullet."

Seif's father responded "it's hard, we can't do anything that's our fate. We can just hope that Israel will only have happy occasions and not sorrow."

When told how the terrorists cut off the heads of two Jews at prayer, the father responded "they have no G-d. In a holy place like this, they come in, these are people with no values, these are not good people." (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
The following video is of Machon Shilo Head, Rabbi David Bar-Hayim, elaborating on the issue.


Was there an attempted cover up? If so, why?

To keep us numbed out, in denial, and under control?

If Ethiopians can do it, Then why can't Americans?

י"ט לחודש התשעי תשע"ה

Posted by Chaim Sidman on the EMERGENCY ALYIA NOW Facebook Group:
If these Jews with nothing can make alyiah with out nothing, why can't Jews in western countries make alyiah with all their posessions? It will get to the point when Jews in western countries lose all their posessions for them to decide when to come. By then it may be to late.

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
I could not have said it any better than Chaim.

However, I would like to elaborate on this a little.

We should not forget the treatment the Ethiopians received upon arriving, in contrast to those immigrating from the former Soviet Union, now estimated to be anywhere from 60 to 70 percent goyim gamurim (non-Jews).

The Ethiopians have also had to struggle to differentiate themselves from those Ethiopians who have no connection to being Jewish whatsoever, and in many cases are believing Christians, who have been allowed to immigrate to Israel anyway.

In addition, this community was hurt greatly by the mixing in from one of the so-called liberal "Jewish Movements. At the tail end of Operation Moses, "volunteers" from North America were instrumental in convincing some of the Ethiopians, that they did not need to undergo conversion. Operation Moses took place in 1984, seven years before Operation Solomon, recounted in the video.

This is just one piece of more evidence at how spiritually challenging it must be for Westerners, particularly North Americans to pick up and leave the exile.

If they wait too long, they risk getting the proverbial kick in the pants like their European brothers and sisters, and those who came from from Arab countries, before them.

Proposed Pro-Marxist Legislation in Israel: Surprised?

י"ז לחודש התשעי תשע"ה

Arutz 7: State Moves to Replace Parents as Children's Guardian
A new bill indicates justice ministry is adopting a neo-Marxist approach to parenting, seeking to annul parental custodianship.

Gil Ronen, December 9, 2014

A bill recently proposed by the justice ministry indicates that it is seeking to take away parents' custodianship of children in Israel. Tzipi Livni's removal from office and the dissolution of the Knesset have temporarily halted the move, which reflects a neo-Marxist approach to the family, in which the state takes over from parents as the ultimate guardian and custodian of children.

The government-sponsored bill, named “Parents and Their Children,” cancels the concept of natural parental guardianship over children. Its explanatory notes say that it aims “to assimilate a new normative perception... in the matters between parents and their minor children.”

It replaces the terms “custody” and “guardianship” with “parental responsibility,” leaving parents responsible for their children but stripping them of the authority that goes along with that responsibility. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Is anyone surprised by this? I mean, seriously?

The only thing which surprises me, is how impatient the Erev Rav appears to be in its battle against the Torah. Only recently, it proposed a "Shabbos Law," which only serves to chip away at Shabbath obervance. And now this.

You know what they say...
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Then, beat 'em, by destroying them from within.
Usually, when parents do not cooperate with the Israeli Government in its indoctrination of our children, they are threatened with taking them away, using the State's social workers as its front line soldiers in this particular battle. If this law passes, they will not have to threaten to take our children away, because they will have already done so!

Not only that, but I anticipate that this proposal will even be sold to the Israeli public as "Israeli," as it has similarities to how parenting in Kibbutzim (Israeli communal farms) was once manifested.

I have not red the legislation myself. However, I believe that the following case scenario is a possible eventual goal of certain elements in the government, albeit most of you will either believe this to be farfetched, if not insane.

No visits from social workers or police. No phone calls. No warnings whatsoever. No Just come in the middle of the night, and take them away, without any obligation to inform you of their whereabouts or condition.

The only difference between previous "disappearances" of our children, like the Yemenite babies of the 1950's, is that now such "disappearances" would be legal.

Apparently, the previous strategy of threats was not working well enough, nor quickly enough, for them.

In a sense, this is good news. They are running scared. Too many Jews have been waking up to the setiroth (conflicts) between the State of Israel and the Torah, for their taste.

Too many Jews have been recognizing that the Torah is the higher authority.

Too many Jews have decided that they are mad as hell, and not going to take it anymore.

Unfortunately, there are not a whole of things more dangerous than a wounded animals, so we need to keep on guard.

“to assimilate a new normative perception... in the matters between parents and their minor children.”

Translation? To assimilate our children into the well-behaved, numbed-out, non-independent thinking collective of Western, anti-Torah culture,...period.

A New Shabbos Law? Don't Be Fooled!

י"ב לחודש התשעי תשע"ה

Life In Israel: Proposed Law: Defining the cultural character of Shabbos
Rafi G., December 4, 2014

Despite the imminent dissolution of the Knesset, for now work goes on as normal, at least sort of, for the Members of the Knesset.

MKs Ruth Calderon (Yesh Atid) and Elazar Stern (Hatnua) have proposed a new law that would qualify the character of Shabbos in the public sphere.

The proposal attempts to define Shabbos as a special and unique day as the official national day of rest, as a day to be dedicated to culture, entertainment and leisure, with minimal commerce.

According to the proposal, while official State institutions would be closed, public facilities would be able to open, such as museums, zoos, cultural centers, national parks, etc. on Shabbos. The law would even allow for payment to enter any of these locations prior to Shabbos, so one would not have to pay on Shabbos itself.

According to the proposal, some limited public transportation would operate, upon approval from each local municipal authority, based on need of local residents. Makolets and pharmacies would require special permits to open, using some sort of rotational system. This would require approval from the local authority and from the Minister of Interior.

In addition, the law would stipulate government funding for cultural activities.

The law will also protect the rights of the Jewish employee to not work on Shabbos and not be discriminated against. source: Srugim

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Good ol' MK's Ruth Calderon and Elazar Stern! No surprises here!

Do not be fooled by this apparently Shabbath-supportive proposal.

There is nothing in this proposal, in the least bit supportive of proper Shabbath observance. In fact, this is merely a strategic ploy to chip away at the already decaying Shabbath laws, enforced by the Israeli Government.

Let's take a careful look at this proposal which will be eaten up by the so-called "movements," and will be supported, if not advocated, by the naive, liberal, Modern Orthodox, and so-called "pluralists."

Allow me to read between the lines, translate the legalese, and connect the dots for you...
A day to be dedicated to culture, entertainment and leisure
you will no longer be demonized for violating Shabbath 
The law would even allow for payment to enter any of these locations prior to Shabbos, so one would not have to pay on Shabbos itself.
The Israeli Government will now make it easier for you to violate Shabbath  
Some limited public transportation would operate
The Israeli Government will now make it easier to violate Shabbath  
Makolets (grocery stores) and pharmacies would require special permits to open 
Don't bother preparing in advance for Shabbath, since you will be able to violate it more easily. (*Incidentally, there is already a system in place allowing for the purchase of perscription drugs on Shabbath.) 
Government funding for cultural activities 
The Israel Government will not only condone anti-Torah activities, but will now be providing their funding.
If passed, this prosposed law will simply make it even easier to violate Shabbath, than it already is.

The attack on Torah is nothing new. The attackers are just getting sneakier and sneakier.

Swiss Jews, Will You Heed the Latest Warning?

ט׳ לחודש התשעי תשע״ה

There had been a lot of buzz, leading up to yesterday's referendum in Switzerland, including from The Jewish Libertarian.

The referendum failed, which definitely has implications for Swiss Jews.
Zero Hedge: Swiss Gold Referendum Fails: 78% Vote Against "Protecting The Country's Wealth"
Tyler Durden, November 30, 2014

Whether as a result of an unprecedented scare campaign by the Swiss National Bank (most recently reinforced by Citigroup), or due to confidence that Swiss gold is as safe abroad as it is at home, or simply due to good old-fashioned "hanging chads", today's most awaited event has come and gone and the result - according to early projections by Swiss television SRF - is that the Swiss population overwhelmingly rejected a referendum to force the Swiss National Bank to hold some 20% of its reserves in gold in a landslide vote, with about 78% voting against what AP politely termed "protecting the country's wealth by investing in gold." (cont.)
So, what does this have to do with the price of tea in China? Or, for that matter, the safety of Swiss Jews?
Forbes: The Swiss Vote Against Hoarding Gold And Capping Immigration
Frances Coppola, November 30, 2014

It was a near thing. Well, not very near, actually. Zero Hedge reports that not a single Swiss canton voted in favour of Ecopop’s insane scheme.

The scheme had three components:
The Swiss central bank was to be forced to hold 20% of its reserves in gold and would be prevented from ever selling any. All Swiss gold held abroad was to be physically repatriated to Switzerland.

There would be a strict limit on immigration set at 0.2% of the resident population, or about 16,000 people

Tax breaks for wealthy foreigners who live in Switzerland but do not work there would be ended.
At first sight, these proposals don’t seem to be connected. But they are. They all add up to the same thing. Switzerland was to protect its wealth, land, environment, public services [tick all that apply] from foreigners.

This is a Swiss nationalist agenda, similar to the nationalist agendas of other fringe parties in Europe such as the UK’s UKIP. We are seeing a significant rise in nationalism across the whole of Europe at the moment.

Growth of nationalism in Eurozone periphery countries is perhaps understandable: unemployment there is at Depression-era levels and there is no end in sight to the interminable austerity imposed by their paymasters in Brussels. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
When in doubt, blame nationalism....
...(Forbes) So the overwhelming decision by the people of Switzerland not to close their borders and hoard their wealth will come as a huge relief to several groups of people.
Well, one group of people, in particular, comes to mind. Although, European Jews are threaten by nationalism, they are threatened by lenient immigration laws as well. After all, who is immigrating to Europe? Muslims.


In 1683, Muslims were pushed back, preventing them from taking Vienna. However, now, the Muslims have long since taken another strategy. Playing on the European's political-correctness and naivete, Muslims have been pouring into Europe, without having to pass through the gates of Vienna.

Getting beaten up from both sides will seem like children joking around on the playground, when the Jews truly get stuck between the Muslim sleepers and newcomers on one side, and the Nationalists on the other.

Of course, in traditional Muslim and European fashion, it will the "Jews' fault."

It reminds me of my grandmother's recounting of her pre-WWI childhood in Galecia (Southern Poland): The Kaiser's forces storming across her parents farm one day, and the Cossacks storming across it in the opposite direction the next day.

Only this time, Europe will become even more of a nightmare.

Here are just a few examples from Switzerland's recent past, of which Jews should expect a repeat performance. All I hear from Swiss Jews is how expensive it is to live there, not to mention the lousy job market. In addition, Shehitah (kosher slaughter) has been banned in Switzerland since 1893, forcing Jews to important kosher meat.

I have absolutely no idea why they insist on remaining there.

Let's hope that they heed the latest warning, and pick up and move to their true homeland.
JTA: Fires Strike Synagogue, Store in Resort Town in Switzerland
JTA and Peter Ephross, March 16, 2005

This week’s fires in a synagogue and a Jewish-owned clothing store here are being called rare acts of anti-Semitic violence in Switzerland. “This kind of violence against Jewish institutions in Switzerland is new. Nobody remembers a similar act,” said Thomas Lyssy, a spokesman for the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities.

Police are investigating both cases of suspected arson. Both fires were set on Sunday night and the leader of the local Jewish community said both were acts of anti-Semitism.

The mayor of the city, Giorgio Giudici, condemned the attacks.

The fire at the synagogue in the resort town near the Italian border caused considerable damage, destroying the library before firefighters put it out.

The store was completely destroyed, Etti Stein told JTA from Los Angeles.

Stein’s sister, Pagit Schreiber, lives in Lugano. Her in-laws own the store.

“She’s very, very upset,” Stein said.

Hans Stutz of the Foundation Against Racism and Anti-Semitism told the Swiss Telegraphic Agency that this was the first fire set in a Swiss synagogue in the last 25 years.

But synagogues have been smeared with anti-Semitic slogans and swastikas: in Lausanne in April 2003, in Geneva in February 1998 and in Lugano in 1996. The worst anti-Semitic incident occurred in 2001 in Zurich, when a rabbi was stabbed by an unknown assailant.

Eli Bollag, the chairman of the Jewish community in Lugano and a member of the City Council, said that he was sad and angry over the fires: sad about the stupidity that lies at the origins of the fires and angry at the cowardice of the perpetrators, who chose to attack such a small Jewish community.

Orthodox Jews have lived in Lugano since World War I. At the end of World War II, the city was home to more than 1,000 refugees.

There are now only about two dozen members of Lugano’s Jewish community, and about 500 Jews in the region.

A Law to Deport Terrorists: Is it Really Good for Israel?

ה' לחודש התשעי תשע"ה

Times Of Israel: Bill seeks to deport terrorists, their families
Initiative would also see stone throwers, ‘inciters’ forfeit welfare benefits for life; group pans bill’s ‘serious human rights violations’

Spencer Ho and Haviv Retig Gur, November 26, 2014

Likud Knesset member Yariv Levin presented to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday a draft of temporary legislation that would, among other provisions, allow the state to revoke the citizenship or residency of terrorists and their family members. The bill was drafted at Netanyahu’s request.

According to Levin’s plan, first reported by the daily Yedioth Ahronoth, the state will revoke the citizenship or residency permit of those convicted of terror activities, which it defines to include the hurling of Molotov cocktails, and expel them to Gaza after they’ve served their prison sentence. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Prime Minister
Binyamin Netanyahu
I am telling you that if this legislation passes, it is only a matter of time, before Israel's Supreme Court strikes it down as "unconstitutional," even though Israel does not have a constitution.

The high court will point out the lack of fairness, in singling out one ethic group. After all, Prime Minister Netanyahu himself had said Israel is the national home of the Jewish people where there are equal rights for every citizen.


The Israeli government will either feign having "no choice" but to alter the language to include ALL citizens regardless of ethnicity or religion, or it will fight with the high court, and eventually lose.

The government will then have the power, that perhaps some MK's have always wanted, to designate Jews as "terrorists," strip them of their citizenship, and expel them from the country.


MK Yariv Levin
(Likud)
I do not doubt MK Yariv Levin's intentions. I just do not know how far he has thought this proposal through.

The legislation is also described as temporary. Well, those of us veteran, Israeli citizens all know what "temporary" means:
Temporary: Temporarily temporary, as in until it is decided to be applied to Jews, at which time, it will be permanent, and as per usual, selectively applied.
I predict that Jews who hold the Torah in higher authority than the Government of of the State of Israel, otherwise known as "extremists," will be be targeted. Already then can be thrown into "Administrative Detention," without trial, just like the Arabs.

See how deMOCKratic Israel is?
OR
Temporary: Ending when it no longer serves the objectives of the powers that be. 
Like a friend of mine just reminded me, Netanyahu always likes to appear super-duper, extra industrial strength, "right-wing" before the Likud Party goes to its primaries. So, even more so, this legislation will not be anything like you might think.

Likud Party Primaries will take place early this January. So, stay tuned!

Why was Shimon Peres Welcomed into Jerusalem's Har Nof Neighborhood?

ד׳ לחודש התשעי תשע״ה



(Tip: Life In Israel)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Shimon Peres, Labor Zionist extraordinaire and one of the major forces behind the Oslo "Death" Accords.

Shimon Peres, the one who claimed that the Jews killed and wounded by Arab snipers in Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria), were not killed and wounded by the weapons the Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin's government gave to the "Palestinian Authority." Rather, he claimed that they were killed or wounded by "other guns."

Shimon Peres, who would like to see [the made up nation of] Jordan invest in his Valley Of Peace Initiative, which essentially blurs one of Israel's borders.

Shimon Peres, who continues to advocate for dialogue with Arabs whose pattern is to kill Jews, with guns, bombs and rockets, and demand that the international community force Israeli into a cease fire agreement, in order build up their stocks of munitions for the next their next round of attacks.

Shimon Peres, who continues to advocate for Arabs to have yet another independent state, Arabs who not only want to annihilate the Jewish People, but who have absolutely no claim to even one square inch of the Land of Israel.

Why on earth was there not even a whimper of protest from the residents of Har Nof, regarding the former President's visit?

Inquiring minds want to know.

In the meantime, please allow me to take the opportunity to bless Shimon Peres.

May The Almighty grant Shimon Peres a retirement, free of any concerns or involvement whatsoever in Israel's afairs, political or otherwise, as well as free from any further interaction with the outside world, thus freeing him (and us) from any undue stress.

Ami Horowitz, Nice Video, But...

ג׳ לחודש התשעי תשע"ה

Many of you have seen this video by Ami Horowitz going around the Internet. It is simple, straightforward, and to the point.


(Tip: Stand With Us)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Ami Horowitz, nice video. But, I just have one question for you...

What the heck are you still doing there??

Don't you get it? The sentiments which you revealed on the Cal. Berkeley (AKA: Berserk-eley) are spreading across the U. S., and they are spreading fast.

Are you and your family in immediate, physical danger? Will the U. S. turn into a France or England (...or Sweden or Beligium) anytime soon? The answers to these questions, I cannot say. What I can do, however, is to ask you, "Haven't you ever thought that maybe, just maybe, at the very least, the expression of such sentiments were reminders that the U. S. is not your true homeland?"

It seems that your mother is from Israel, and left. But, you, perhaps even with her encouragement, have also spent some time here. For all I know, you may have extensive family here, and may even be fluent in Hebrew. I do not know.

I also cannot say that I know your views at all about immigrating to Israel. Perhaps that life plan is already in the works. Assuming the worst, I have to tell you that Israel is not just "that place to go to for study and connecting with ones heritage, perhaps serve in the IDF, and then just get up leave.

You have gone out on a limb making very bold statements, and attempting to wake the world up the truths you have uncovered, buried in the sand by the media and by "them." Here is only one of many examples:
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), Horowitz charged in a March 2010 article, "has consistently acted as a sanctuary for terrorist activity and employment," and yet the U.S. "has funded UNRWA to the tune of nearly $3.5 billion," thus effectively "acting as their enablers." (Wikipedia: Ami Horowitz)
I have no doubt that you have helped to wake people up to the reality that not everything, published in the mainstream media, can be taken at face value. I am not at all unappreciative of your work.

But, now it's my turn to help Jews to wake up.

The feelings of my fellow Jews' attachment and sentimentality toward the lands of our exile, I cannot, nor will I even begin to argue with. They are feelings. They are what they are. But, setting such feelings aside, the U. S. is only one of many, temporarily dwelling place for Jews, the key word being "temporary."
וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֶל-פַּרְעֹה, לָגוּר בָּאָרֶץ בָּאנוּ, כִּי-אֵין מִרְעֶה לַצֹּאן אֲשֶׁר לַעֲבָדֶיךָ, כִּי-כָבֵד הָרָעָב בְּאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן; וְעַתָּה יֵשְׁבוּ-נָא עֲבָדֶיךָ, בְּאֶרֶץ גֹּשֶׁן. (בראשית מז,ד)

And they said unto Pharaoh: 'To sojourn in the land we have come; for there is no pasture for your servants' flocks; for the famine is sore in the land of Canaan. Now therefore, we pray that your let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen.' (Gen. 47:4)
Just like our exile in Egypt, and our subsequent exiles, our exile in Edom is temporary.

You don't approach the Torah in the same way as I do? It doesn't matter.

Whether Torah-observant, traditional, secular, I have yet to find any pattern among those who believe this message. There are those from each of these three, general groupings of Jews who believe very strongly in moving to Israel now, and staying, and there are those who do not.

However frustrating it can get to have this message oftern fall on deaf ears, it is my job,...actually the collective job of those of us Jews who made it out of the golah (exile), and back home, to continue delivering this message, regardless of the outcome, regardless of the names we are called, and regardless of any other reactions,

I pray that The Holy One Blessed Be He, continues to send the same message, but that it does not have to become too painful.

And, I pray, that my fellow Jews will pay attention.

Netanayhu's "Jewish State Law" Is Not Really Jewish

ג' לחודש התשעי תשע"ה

JPost.com: Cabinet approves 'Jewish state bill'
Lahav Harkov, Herb Keinon, November 24, 2014

PM says he "can't run the country with coalition's ultimatums" as cabinet vote descends into shouting match, Livni accuses him of wanting to fire her, Lapid.

The cabinet voted in favor of the controversial "Jewish state bill," with the preceding discussion descended into a shouting match between ministers on Sunday.

“People ask who needs this bill; we have managed 66 years without it,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said ahead of the meeting. “And I ask, who needs the Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty, we managed 45 years without it. We need both,” he said. “Israel is a Jewish democratic state. There are those who want democracy to take precedence over Judaism, and those who want Judaism to take precedence over democracy. In the law that I am bringing, both principles are equal and must be given equal consideration.”

Netanyahu said Israel is the national home of the Jewish people where there are equal rights for every citizen. “But there are national rights only for the Jewish people; a flag, anthem, the right of every Jew to immigrate to Israel, and other national symbols,” he said. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
There are those who might say that Prime Minister Netanyahu is using the recent increase in acts of Arab terrorism to push through this legislation, taking advantage of a rising tide of nationalism. And, they might be right.

However, just like his predecessors, he has taken this nationalism on detour away from the Jewish nationalist path, in favor of an Israeli nationalist path,... a secular, Israeli nationalist path. In other words, nothing much has changed.

To sell his scam, Netanyahu keeps a few sprinkles of Jewish symbolism, as well as the ultimate cherry on top, a "Jewish" national flag. The Temple's Menorah remains on the seal of the same State which has absolutely no intention of rebuilding the Temple, let alone asserting full control over it. In reality, Netanyahu has not added anything new. Instead, he has taken steps to fortify the State's protection against anything which could risk its being further influenced by Judaism.

God, Please Help Us Remove this Threat to Jewish Children!

ראש החודש התשעי תשע"ה

Anyone with access to good Jews in Har Nof, the Jerusalem neighborhood which was hit with terrorist attack last week at one of its synagogues, please make them aware of Christian efforts to capitalize on our grief and suffering, and use it as a means to ingratiate themselves with Jews for the purpose of bringing glory to their false religion.

THIS IS URGENT!!

(From an email issued by ICEJ)
...The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is determined to be a source of comfort and healing for the families traumatized by this senseless terror. In this regard, a unique opportunity has opened to the Christian Embassy to directly assist the ultra-Orthodox families hardest hit by the deadly assault in the Har Nof synagogue. 
This very weekend, the ICEJ is sponsoring a ‘Shabbat retreat’ for the 24 children who lost their fathers in that attack. They will stay in guest houses in the Galilee and receive special counselling from experts trained to deal with terror victims. They will also be offered therapeutic activities as well as Bible lessons before re-joining their families early next week. 
There are many more children whose fathers remain hospitalized due to severe wounds inflicted during the synagogue attack, and the door is also open for us to help them as well in coming weeks. In addition, through our long-time connections to the Druze community, we will be reaching out to help the families of the two Druze police officers recently killed while defending their fellow Israeli citizens. 
So this is your chance to help us bring comfort and healing to those who mourn in Zion. The needs of these families are many and their future is uncertain. Yet the news that Christians are helping them is already spreading, giving a powerful and timely testimony that Christians truly care.

Please consider supporting supporting this important initiative by making a donation to our Israel in Crisis fund. 
We will be meeting with the families in the upcoming days and want to extend our supporters worldwide the opportunity to send messages of condolence that we will personally deliver. This is a chance for you to let Israelis know we love and support them. 
Shalom from Jerusalem,
Dr. Juergen Buehler
Executive Director
International Christian Embassy Jerusalem
