Terror Victim Inspires Unique Sukkot Decorations Across Israel and Abroad

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

A group of female graphic designers from across Israel have spearheaded a project to commemorate Na’ama Henkin, the 30-year-old mother who was murdered with her husband, Rabbi Eitam Henkin, 31 in a drive-by shooting carried out by three Hamas terrorists last October 2015. The couple was killed as they were driving with their four young children on the road between Itamar and Elon Moreh in Samaria.

Eitam Henkin was a doctoral student at Tel Aviv University and Na’ama was a respected graphic designer who owned her own studio. The family lived in the Neria community in the Mateh Binaymin Regional Council of southern Samaria.

“We wanted to find a way to remember the kind of person Na’ama Henkin was,” Rivkah Nitsan told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) in an interview. Nitsan, herself a graphic designer, did not personally know Henkin but followed her graphic design work.

“The last thing that Na’ama created was a poster for Sukkot, which she had uploaded to her Facebook business page for her clients and friends to print and use to decorate their Sukkot [booths],” Nitsan explained. Henkin had chosen a passage symbolizing unity within Israel for her last creation.

“A group of graphic designers from secular and religious backgrounds came together to create a variety of posters to use as Sukkot decorations based on Na’ama’s original color palette,” Nitsan told TPS. Each of the 44 designers who participated in the project chose a passage and a Sukkot-themed symbol for their poster, keeping within the spirit of Na’ama’s last work.

Over 40 posters were created and have been uploaded to a Facebook page, Aguda Achat – In Memory of Rav Eitam and Naama Henkin, dedicated to Hemkin’s memory. People from across Israel including some Knesset members and people from abroad have downloaded the posters to decorate their Sukkahs. “People in Canada and the USA wrote to us saying that they have hung these posters in their Sukkahs,” said Nitsan, who noted that head of the Zionist Union party and opposition leader Isaac Herzog had several posters in his family’s Sukkah.

“Na’ama was a very kind and giving person and she believed in the unity of our people. We wanted to commemorate this legacy of Na’ama,” commented Nitsan.

“The project gives people the opportunity to remember the light and beauty of Na’ama. I believe that if Na’ama is looking down right now, she’d be happy to see how her work is continuing to inspire others,” concluded Nitsan.

The Danger Zone – When Will We Learn? [audio]

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

With Israel being at the forefront of terrorism you would think they know how to handle terrorists, but sometimes you just have to ask the question, “When will we learn?” Today we will be discussing the case of Eiman the 17 year old daughter of the terrorist Misbah Abu Sbeih from last Sunday’s attack in Jerusalem. Afterwards we will be joined once again by Rabbi Aryel Nachman to discuss the UNESCO vote which claims that Jews have no connection to the Temple Mount.

Bennett Suspends All Cooperation with ‘Terror Supporting’ UNESCO

Friday, October 14th, 2016

As part of his role as Education Minister, Habayit Hayehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett is also President of the Israel National Commission for UNESCO, and so on Friday he decided to suspend all professional cooperation with the international body following its resolution that denied the connection of the Jewish people to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. The Israeli commission will no longer conduct meetings with UNESCO representatives nor participate in its international conferences, due to what Bennet called the organization’s support for terror.

According to Bennett, “the organization’s decision is a denial of history which offers a back wind to terrorism. I will work with my colleagues around the world against this delusional resolution. An official announcement has been sent to the UNESCO leadership.”

Minister Bennett also sent a letter to all UNESCO member states saying that “anyone who rewards the supporters of jihad in Jerusalem, on the same week that two Jews have been murdered in the city, could end up being next in line, God forbid. The Western world must resist UNESCO and rewarding terror.”

The resolution, voted on by non-Western states including many from the Arab world, was submitted by the Palestinian Authority. Among other things they blame Israel for destroying Jerusalem’s historic and archeological heritage by conducting archaeological digs.

Jerusalem Deputy Mayor: I Killed Housing for Arabs as Punishment for Terror Attack

Monday, October 10th, 2016

Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Meir Turgeman, who also chairs the City Planning Commission, on Monday morning told Jerusalem Radio that he plans to “punish” the Arabs of eastern Jerusalem for Sunday’s terror attack, and has already deleted from his committee agenda all the construction plans for the city’s Arab neighborhoods. “We’ve arrived at the moment of truth,” Turgeman said. “Let’s put our cards on the table — the people in eastern Jerusalem want to kill and annihilate us. Why should we give them new opportunities every day?”

“The whole time we’ve been living with the false hope that these people, if we give them and help them and support them, would change their bestial behavior,” Turgeman continued. “But it turns out that nothing helps. Why should people die in Jerusalem, where is it written, who said it? We need to accept responsibility around here. And I’m going to make an example. I removed from the agenda all the construction plans for eastern Jerusalem. I took down all the plans. They say we should use carrots and sticks, well we’re fresh out of carrots, only the sticks are left.”

“It’s over, I take the responsibility, and if you don’t like it, fire me,” Turgeman said.

As chairman of the city planning commission, Turgeman  actually has the authority to change his committee’s agenda and prevent plans from coming up for a debate. Naturally, what would ensue are countless lawsuits by contractors and land owners who would argue the delays are rooted in external motives. For now the planning commission is going to be on hiatus for the Jewish holidays, so the chairman will have a chance to gracefully walk back his angry statement.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat’s office has released a statement saying Turgeman’s plan had not been “coordinated with the mayor and does not reflect City policy. The way to prevent terrorism is by fighting in an uncompromising manner and with a strong hand against those who choose the path of terror, incitement and violence — and concurrently by bolstering the moderates and serving those residents who want to obey the law.”
