Storm is Brewing for Sure; Heavenly Help Needed

Cemetery in Shilo, Israel.

I wrote one of my first blog posts just after coming home from the azkara, death memorial for Avi (Avraham Yosef Chaim ben Moshe) Siton, HaYa”D, who was murdered by Arab terrorists with two other teenagers in their schoolyard in Itamar, just north of Shiloh.

No doubt I wasn’t the only one who kept thinking of the three other teenage boys who are missing after being kidnapped by Arab terrorists a few days ago. Avi’s father also mentioned them in his moving talk while standing over the grave.

As we stood in the local cemetery, thinking of all of the people, good Jews from all over the world buried there, we couldn’t forget that Avi isn’t the only teenager. Just in the grave next to him, there is his best friend Shmuel Yerushalmi who was murdered in a different terror attack just a few weeks after him. Nearby are Noam Apter, Yonatan Eldar and Avihu Keinan. Harel Bin Nun is buried in Yitzhar near the site of his murder. Yes, add the “HaYa”D” may G-d avenge their blood to all of their names.

Unfortunately, although I’m not sure that the Israeli media is giving this coverage–though I know it’s being ignored by the international media, Arab terrorists have been attacking or attempting to attack throughout this difficult period while the IDF is searching for Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Frankel. Arab terrorists attempted to invade Kochav Yaakov, near Sha’ar Binyamin, and there has been shooting at Jewish cars in Gush Etzion.

Please remember that Gush Etzion’s main junction, bus stop and trempiada is the location the boys were at when they were kidnapped by Arab terrorists. Most people in Gush Etzion like to make a point of saying that their area, unlike where I live in the Binyamin Local Council is considered to be “safe” in the political sense, part of the “consensus” that even in a “peace treaty” requiring Israel to give up Land, it will stay Israeli. Unfortunately I think they are delusional. They shouldn’t think that Gush Etzion is any safer in any sense or more Israeli than Gush Shiloh.

Not only do the Arabs see us all as “the same,” but if you read the Arab propaganda both internal and to the outside world you’d see that they are asking for Jerusalem and Haifa, not Efrat and Eli. Think about it please.

    You keep making excuses for the obvious. The very Islamic Nazis aligned with Hitler to 'kill all Jews' and still do are the very ones Bibi and gang are appeasing. How can you be this stupid? At least in the ghettos, before the Holocaust, they didn't have the weaponry, like Israel does. But Israel behaves as badly as before and worse in denying the intent of its enemies. When it comes to protecting what G-d gave us, the League of Nations gave us and millions of Jews, religious and secular, were murdered for, Israel is obsessed with the sheckel and is clueless on politics or what the enemy is doing. Israel created Abbas, no different than Hamas or Arafat. The Third Intifada is in motion, while you keep making excuses not only endangering yourselves but every Jew in the world, that Jerusalem and Israel also belong to.
