VLOG: Yishai in Boston With Message of Solidarity Against Terror


Boston is Strong

As providence would have it, I came to Boston in just “the right time” in the sense that I got to to give strength to some of the people here in the immediate aftermath of the awful terror attack on Monday.

The following is a short video message that I recorded in the streets of Boston right in the area of the attack. You can see behind me the press corp and the police working hard. Also I am including some pictures that I took on Wed as I walked around the area of the marathon which is still closed off.

A young Russian Jewish American who was running the marathon – and was, in fact, right in between the bomb blasts – and spared from from injury. She asked me how did I cope with being injured in Lebanon by a roadside bomb and did I have any advice for her. I told her that the goal of bombers was to have those shock waves go into our body and cause damage to our internal organs. But if we can take that shock wave and let it pass through us and change that blast energy into something positive – so that the energy of the blast is converted through our bodies into a healing energy and into a building energy – then we will have thwarted the efforts of the bomber.

They want to destroy us – they want us to be full of fear – but we will use that blast energy to remind us that life is precious and that we are here on this world for a short time in order to build and make the world a better place. We will not grant staisfaction to the bombers – we will take their very evil energy and convert it into a renewable source of life. The dead and the injured should not suffer the double fate of having the paid in blood and having that blood be meaningless. We will take that blood and make it meaningfull we will take that blast and harness its energy. We will deny the terrorists their satisfaction and instead we will ensure that the great research and knowledge that comes from Boston will continue to emanate, and the amazing spirit that comes from Jerusalem will light up the world.

Let us pray that all those who were injured will have a speedy recovery and may this terror attack inspire us to band together and fight for a better future for mankind.

Reports of a dead baby, a devastated family, and indications of a gloating attacker.

In all the years (and this week it’s exactly 14 years) since our daughter was murdered, we have not found a single Arabic-language post, article, tweet or speech condemning that attack in the center of Jerusalem or the killings.

Everyone is angry at the ongoing Arab terrorism, but what does murdering a baby have to do with protecting Jewish lives or furthering Jewish settlement in the Land of Israel?

Yishai is joined by cyber-security expert Pinchas Orbach and terror-funding expert Dr. Mattew Levit.
First, Yishai reads and responds to e-mails from listeners, which touch on a range of issues, such as American support for the Kurds and Israel; the faculty of courage; and pushing back on efforts to normalize homosexuality.

Then, following questions about the source of the Duqu computer virus found in the hotels where nuclear negotiations with Iran took place, Orbach talks about the quiet cyber-war in which Israel is engaged. Afterwards, Levitt, director of the Washington Institute’s Stein Program on Counter-terrorism and Intelligence, explains how terrorist organizations fund their massive operations.
