- Multiple attempted Terror Attacks in Israel today…
--- Two assailants rammed a vehicle into a civilian bus stop at the Elias junction near the community of Kiryat Arba. Forces at the scene fired at the vehicle resulting in the death of one of the assailants while the other was wounded.” No civilians were injured, thank G-d.
-- A man carrying a Jordanian passport arrived at the Damascus Gate in the Old City in Jerusalem and approached a group of officers with a knife drawn. The officers, who were in the area on a “safety and security mission,” saw the man coming towards them with the blade and opened fire. No civilians or authorities injured, thank G-d.
-- A bus traveling from Jerusalem to nearby Maale Madumin was attack with rocks and glass bottles full of paint, injuring the bus driver. Glass shards from a broken window hit the driver, cutting him, as he was driving down the Route 1 highway. Police began searching the area to find the perpetrators of the attack. Oh, it’s just a rock attack – only rocks – it’s not like a bus full of people might not crash and kill people – its just rocks. Attempted Mass Murder.
- In Germany, mob of 100 neo-Nazis in vicious brawl with 20 Islamic asylum seekers who goaded them into violence. Then, the asylum seekers attacked the police who were trying to defend them! Speaks for itself, what do you say when both should lose?
- Dozens of violations of Syrian cease fire, no aide reaching those in need. Both the regime and rebel forces claim that dozens of violations of the ceasefire have occurred. The UN reports that the Syrian army is not allowing aid trucks into Aleppo, while Russia is attacking the United States for 'not meeting obligations.' Complete balagan, and yet with hundreds of thousands suffering and hundreds of thousands killed…hearing anything about this? UN Security Council resolutions? Making your nightly news? Noooo? Why not? Because it’s NOT THE JOOOOOOOS.
- It’s erev Shabbos Parshat Ki Teizei. 74 mitzvot are taught in this Parsha, including the inheritance rights of the firstborn, the wayward and rebellious son, burial and dignity of the dead, returning a lost object, and more. Go to synagogue and hear the Torah!
