Before this war started Israel has been subject to terrorist attacks for a long time:
- Over 1,182 Israelis have died due to terror attacks
- There are 836 children orphaned due to terror attacks
- There have been 7,735 wounded, some crippled for life
- There have been 123 Israeli children slaughtered by terrorists
Since the start of the war over 2500 rockets and missiles have fallen on Israel, causing manyÂ casualties, including a father and his fourteen year old daughter tonight. Houses are scarred, damaged, and in some cases completely destroyed. Half a milliion Israelis are are refugees from the north. The economy in the north is halted, and there will be a great need for rebuilding even if this ends tomorrow.
It is time to assist Israel, our strongest ally in the Mid-East, and below are some links to charities that are helping now, click on the pictures to get to the donation sites:
I received an email from Rabbi Eliezer Avtzon, Founder & Executive Director of the Global Jewish Assistance and Relief Network. They need help getting enough people to sign their petition. The goal is 100,000 so far the have only 16,524
The enclosed petition will be sent to the leaders of the G8 countries and to the heads of the United Nations asking them to remain steadfast in their united support for Israel to defend itself against these unprovoked actions of the abduction of its soldiers within sovereign territory and for the consistent firing of missiles against its people.
