I received an email regarding the recitation of the Shema tomorrow evening.
MONDAY JULY 28TH AT 19:00
(12:00 pm EST)
JEWS AROUND THE WORLD WILL JOIN AND SAY
שמע ישראל ה׳ אלוקינו ה׳
FOR THE SUCCESS & PROTECTION OF OUR SOLDIERS
When I read that "Four children were killed and five other people were injured when a rocket landed near their homes," I waited for accusations of war crimes and a special convening of UN members to discuss the intentional massacre of innocent children. As I continued reading the article, I learned that the children had been killed in Rafah, Egypt. I further read that "Three security sources said the rocket was likely fired by Islamist militants operating in the Sinai peninsula."
Reuters went on to report that "The three security sources said the rocket fired on Saturday had been targeting an army compound or check point but had fallen instead by mistake near civilian homes."
So, in the case of Islamic militants, a mistake can be made, whereas Israel is accused of intentionally targeting children.
When CNN host Erin Burnet interviewed Ron Dermer about the shelling of a Gaza school which initial reports indicated came from the Israeli side, she stated "the reason we are showing these pictures- because these are dead children."
Did CNN show the pictures of the dead children in the Rafah attack?
Incidentally, CIF Watch reports BREAKING: Video suggests IDF mortars did NOT play role in Beit Hanoun killing.
A Canadian Muslim leader quotes various texts from The Old Testament to try to prove a point.
Everything Hashem promised to Abraham is contingent on the actions of his children and his household after him.
...So for everything He's said about Abraham to come to pass, you have to step up and do the right thing first. And the "right thing" is clearly linked to the well-being of the Palestinians, because of Deuteronomy 29: 10-11:
All of you are standing today in the presence of the LORD your God -- your leaders and chief men, your elders and officials, and all the other men of Israel, together with your children and your wives, and the aliens living in your camps who chop your wood and carry your water.
So, the right thing is to have them carry water and chop wood?
