Bat Ayin bleeds after a terrorist attack. Shlomo Nativ, the 13 year-old son of Rabbi Chaim Nativ, was slaughtered by an Arab with an ax. Shlomo's funeral was yesterday.
The attack took place right before noon in the center of Bat Ayin, in front of the grocery store.
Please pray for 7-year old Yair Tuvia ben Michal who is suffering from a fractured skull after having been hit by the same ax-swinging terrorist that murdered Shlomo Nativ. Yair Tuvia is the son of Ofer Gamliel, who has been incarcerated for the last 7 years. Though Arab terrorists receive vacations on a regular basis, Gamliel has not been allowed out of the prison during these 7 years.
May Hashem comfort the Nativ family among the other mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim.
Before the boy's body was cold, US State Department spokeman Robert Wood stated, "The United States will push hard for Palestinian statehood despite a new rightist government in Israel but anticipates a rough road ahead. We're going to be working hard to see what we can do to move the process forward. But we're under no illusions. It's not going to be easy. We have to engage constantly and remind the parties of their obligations and to try to set up a framework, a process for getting us toward that goal of a two-state solution."
Apparently, not murdering Jewish children with an ax is not part of the Palestinian's peace obligations.
