No Words... אין מילים

Many people here in Israel and the Jewish World know exactly what I mean.

A tiny baby died today.

The tiny baby was one of the youngest victims of Arab terrorism.

The tiny baby was even younger than Yehuda Shoham, HaY"aD, a neighbor of mine, who at the age of five months died as the result of a terror attack less than twenty years ago.

There have been so many Arab terror attacks against innocent Jews that it's hard to remember them all, and it's hard to remember all of the victims.

But for the past few days many of us have been praying for this tiny baby, whether we know the family or not. Actually, many of us have discovered that we do know the family. And even if we don't have a personal connection, how could anyone remain disengaged from the story of a young beautiful couple who had been among a handful of people trying to get a ride outside of Ofra and were shot and injured by Arab terrorists?

The most seriously injured was a young woman,  married barely a year ago. She was pregnant with their first child. And now the baby is dead, and the young mother has to recover from life-threatening injuries.

Our thoughts, love and sympathy are with Amichai and Shira Ish-Ran, their family and close friends.

The cemetery was started when Rachella Druk, HaYa"D, was murdered by Arab terrorists over twenty five years ago.

I grieve to think of the lives lost to Arab murderers. Unfortunately, and I realize it runs counter to Israel’s democratic ideals, I believe some sort of separation is the only way to stop it. That will be painful, but less, over time, than the ongoing terror.

There are no words that can describe the international
media firestorm that would be happening right now,
if an Arab baby had been killed by Jews – but since
a Jewish baby was killed by Arabs, most if the
international media will ignore this sad story.

There are no words that can describe the stupidity
and wickedness of so-called “Social Justice Warriors”
who grant official Victim Status to fanatical
bloodthirsty genocidal Muslim terrorists, but
not to the innocent victims of those terrorists.
