Twist to the Story

One thing about the attack caught my attention: Erez said that the attackers wore IDF uniforms. Could Palestinian terrorists in IDF uniforms be responsible the reported attacks "by Israelis on their Palestinian neighbors" so played up in the media? How could one find out?

music too loud

nice clips but music is too loud, makes hearing the words difficult.

על זה כתוב פסוק ספר ישעיה פרק יב
א) ואמרת ביום ההוא אודך השם כי אנפת בי ישב אפך ותנחמני.
שגם על הקשיים צריך להודות להשם, ודוקא על ידי הקושי לעתיד יצמח הישועה. כמו שרואים בסיפורים הנ"ל שאתם מביאים. תודה.

There but for the grace of GOD go I!!

inspiring story - I do believe God has a plan - and the reasons why are NOT always right in the moment apparent to one. A story from my Fathers army years have stayed with me - my Father and others were under fire and they had dove into a ditch for protection from the rounds of ammo coming their way. The two other men where friends and the man on his one side wanted to be next to his friend and had proceeded to crawl over my Father the moment he was directly over him a bullet dropped and the man had saved my Fathers life but had lost his in doing so. Believe many stories of chance happen daily and to reason why is filled with only more questions - I too have been spared and am Thankful for the GRACE Of GOD! Surely there is a reason and God holds these answers and time will tell if we're privy to these answers. Hopefully if not in this life time in our afterlife! Hope so!

We need to see past the immediate....not easy, but necessary. May we all be able to perceive HaShem's kindnesses!
