While We in Shiloh Heard Thunder Friday, Jews in Jerusalem were Endangered by Arab Terrorists!

Here in Shiloh, as Shabbat began, the sky was filled with lightening, and thunder was close enough to knock out the electricity and telephones (discovered only after Shabbat) in neighbors' homes. Rain fell, and some succot became to wet for eating and sleeping. That's not the first time in our forty-four years in Israel that we've been rained out of the succah, and davka, ours was dry enough for eating in.

Unfortunately... or is that the wrong word? Let's start again...

In contrast, in Jerusalem's Ma'ale Zaitim neighborhood fireworks and rocks shot and thrown by Arab terrorists endangered the Jewish residents much more. Arab terrorists terrorized, more exactly, attacked Jewish homes.
Arab terrorists attacked the Jerusalem neighborhood of Maaleh Hazeitim about 3:00 p.m. Friday, targeting Jewish residents with fireworks and rocks.
The fireworks caused a fire in the nearby brush, which spread quickly but was extinguished by the residents and private security guards before the fire department showed up. (Arutz 7)
Watch and listen.


Hat tip, thanks to Esser Agaroth for helping me find the video in a format I could copy/use.


  • Now, has anyone heard of any foreign power condemning the attack on these Jewish families?
  • Now, has anyone heard of any human rights NGOs condemning the attack on these Jewish families?
  • Now, has anyone heard of any international media condemning the attack on these Jewish families?
  • Now, has anyone heard of any publicity-hungry celebrities condemning the attack on these Jewish families?
  • Nu, does anyone in the world really care about Jewish life and survival?
  • So why should we keep on endangering ourselves for others?

We had Arab fireworks on Sukkot in Talpiot Mizrach, Jerusalem. We get it all the time and it keeps us awake at night.
