Rice Tells Olmert She's Concerned about Gaza Civilians - Arshad Mohammed
Secretary of State Rice voiced concern on Thursday about Palestinian civilians killed by Israeli attacks in Gaza, but stopped short of an explicit call for Israel to exercise restraint. "I am concerned about the humanitarian condition there and innocent people in Gaza who are being hurt. We have to remember that the Hamas activities there are responsible for what has happened in Gaza," she said. (Reuters)
The most gut-wrenching moment was 8-year-old Maria caressing the forehead of her older brother, Yossi, while he was lying wounded on the floor of the supermarket. There was no screaming, no panic, and no crying.
He realized that only his little sister is near him, and as always he must protect her, so he drew on some incredible strength, chocked back the tears, and kept the pain inside him; a child hero who a minute earlier was still having fun, just like other children anywhere else in the world. He went to play soccer, after leaving his school bag at home. So banal, so taken for granted anywhere else, yet so dangerous in Sderot.
More Than 70
Missiles Hit Sderot and Ashkelon
It just won't stop. Another 70 Kassam missiles hit Sderot yesterday and today, leaving destruction in their wake. And now Palestinian terrorists have shown they can reach Ashkelon as well.
On Wednesday Roni Yechiah, a 47-year-old father of four, was killed by a missile that landed just outside of Sapir College in Sderot. Roni, from Moshav Bit'ha just outside of town, was a career soldier studying logistics at the college. The explosion riddled his body with shrapnel, and though rescue workers tried desperately to resuscitate him, he died on the scene.
Today, as missiles continue to hit homes, factories, and even a hospital in Ashkelon, at least 17 people were injured, including a 70-year-old woman.
One Family Fund field workers are there for each of the families victimized by Palestinian missiles. As Roni Yechiah's wife and four children mourn his death, they will need OneFamily's financial and emotional support. We will be there for them and all the victims of missiles and terror in Israel.
Those of us living in safety and calm are reaching out to show our support and to help the people of Sderot who are truly paying the price of living in a free Israel.
UPDATE: Please join AMCHA: Coalition for Jewish Concerns as we gather in support of
our brethren living in constant fear and pain. We'll remember those killed
and maimed by the Kassam terror rockets.
