What do you say? And will you be saying it too?

by Reb Akiva at Mystical Paths

I came home from work to find one of my daughters raging mad at the death of a baby, born by c-section after his mother was shot in the stomach by an arab terror attack.

A short time later another daughter arrived home bringing news of soldiers being murdered while protecting a bus stop in the Shomron (West Bank) - mentioning that she knew one of the young men who was murdered, who apparently was a young man from our neighborhood who was drafted into Netzach Yehuda - Nachal Charedi, the ultra-orthodox IDF infantry battalion.

Both situations left me with nothing to say - stunned at the evil which continues to be perpetuated in 'Palestinian' society and actively supported and financed around the world (noting the UN's refusal to declare even the most evil acts terrorism).

All I can say is that while the Jews are usually the first to suffer attacks, they are never the last.  If the world doesn't stand up and actively stand against such events, then shortly thereafter they are occurring throughout the Western world.

My daughters are older now, the youngest involved 17, and weren't looking for parental explanation.  For tragic events we say Baruch Dayan Ha-emes, Blessed is the True Judge.  I don't understand the why or the Heavenly plan that requires such - but I do understand that if we are not standing up shouting NOT OK and pushing our governments to actively take actions against such barbarity, it will spread.
