Report: Syrian Army Chemical Missile Kills 100 (Video)

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Israel’s Channel 10 News cites a report from the opposition to Syrian President Bashar Assad that the Syrian army has launched a surface-to-surface missile in a suburb of the capital Damascus, killing more than 100.



The reliability of the report not yet clear, according to Channel 10, and it is not known what type of chemical was used.

According to the report, the Syrian army is bombing the towns of Tamara and Zamalka, on the outskirts of Damascus. The rebels are reporting dozens of injuries. It was also reported that the army has shot down a rebel helicopter.

Several Arab news channel have carried this report. The alleged attack took place while a UN mission with some 20 inspectors is in Damascus to investigate earlier reports of chemical weapons use.

The inspectors are expecting to visit three sites, most notably Khan al-Assal near Aleppo. According to the UN, 13 reports of chemical weapon attacks have been received to date – not including today’s report.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon said the investigators intend to collect samples, conduct interviews with witnesses, victims, and attending medical personnel, and conduct autopsies.

Meanwhile, according to Reuters, the Syrian army has attacked rebel positions in the eastern city of Deir al-Zor on Tuesday, countering a rebel advance that threatened to take the whole city. Deir al-Zor, on the banks of the Euphrates, 270 miles northeast of Damascus, is the capital of an oil-rich region bordering Iraq.


VLOG: Yishai in Boston With Message of Solidarity Against Terror

Friday, April 19th, 2013

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.
