The real martyrs.

People who kill and maim innocents are not martyrs. They are cowards. The so called Palestinians weep over the victims of Baruch Goldstein but dance in the street when Jews are slain.

Interesting: a Jew kills - both Arabs and Jews are sad. An Arab kills - Jews are sad and Arabs rejoice.

The names of the martyrs:

Doron Mehereta, 26, of Ashdod
Ro’i Rote, 18, of Elkanah in Samaria (Shomron)
Yonadav Haim Hirschfeld, 19, of Kokhav HaShachar (Shomron)
Yochai Lipshitz, 18, of the Old City of Jerusalem
Yonatan Yitzchak Eldar, 16, of Shilo (Shomron)
Neriah Cohen, 15, of Jerusalem
Segev Pniel Avichayil, 15, of N’vei Daniel in Gush Etzion
Avraham David Moses, 16, of Efrat, Gush Etzion
St. Sgt. Doron Asulin, 20 from Beersheba
St. Sgt. Eran Dan-Gur, 20 from Jerusalem

I am very deeply saddened at the senseless and cowardly murder of these innocent young lives. May the Lord grant mercy to their souls and comfort their loved ones and all those who share in this terrible loss. O come, Prince of peace! Surround and protect your people Israel, Father, and deliver Ishmael from Satan's evil grip, O Lord for Israel's sake. I pray that you will grant Israel G-dly righteous leadership who will have enough faith in you, Lord, not to negotiate with terrorists or go against your holy word concerning the land and Jerusalem. Hear your people Lord when they call out to you for help and mercy. Remember your promises, remember Abraham and David, and the things that were prophesied in your Name! Amen.

Therese: Were you born Jewish?

No, my background is anglo/celtic/nordic - as far as I know, but I don't rule out the possibility of some Jewish connection somewhere in my ancestry - this may sound strange, but when my mother died, her features changed a little and in death she looked Jewish - so it made me wonder. One thing I know for sure, we are all related to each other through Noah!
I also know I love Jeshua, who is/was Jewish, and I love his people not just for "religious" reasons but because I worked at a Jewish health care facility for a number of years and got to know many wonderful Jewish people very well - I feel the G-d of heaven and earth chose well when He chose the Jewish people for himself, not faultless to be sure, but there's something of G-d deep in every Jewish heart which makes them a blessing just to be near, like a piece of eternity, and when they are all gone back to Israel I will miss them very much, and if the Lord permits and grants me strength, I will probably try to follow them there!
