The ongoing war in Gaza has blurred our focus on Judea and Samaria, where a new entifada is brewing.
Yesterday morning, an alert border policeman at Beitar Illit noticed that the driver of a white west-bound Citroen Berlingo was acting weird – he pulled him over but he dried to get away. He was apprehended immediately and arrested. In the back of the Berlingo, the officers saw several prodigious cooking gas canisters, the size that would be sufficient for a month’s needs for a 12-family apartment building. These propane cannisters were connected to chunks of metal and an explosive device which contained several pounds of TNT (the flesh-colored play-dough looking substance in the image above). Police sappers disassembled the car bomb, which was intended to explode in an Israeli residential area. Hashem prevented a mega-catastrophe. In the words of super-modest officer Yeshurun Zoran, a real hero who we all owe much to:
We’re in the notorious “9 Days” before Tisha B’Av, and yet Hashem’s miracles and loving-kindness know no bounds. We should all be singing praises and songs of gratitude all day long.
The Klausenberger Rebbe osb”m, who lost a wife and 11 children in the Holocaust, addressed the challenges of our people and taught how to regard them from the proper perspective: “A father’s mercy is upon his son; it’s therefore clear that our Father in Heaven doesn’t want to harm us, for His love of His people Israel and even the sinners of Israel is well known.”
I went past Betar to Bet Shemesh, Israel the long way because of potential #terrorattack B’H. Already In Jaffa , Eli in Teli but got to run to Jerusalem soon , only good news! http://www.jerusalemonline.com/news/in-israel/local/watch-terrorist-attack-thwarted-at-betar-checkpoint-6738
Miracles Midnightrabbi inspires There is suspicion of an attempted terrorist attack. A car arrived at the Betar checkpoint with gas cylinders found inside of it. The driver was arrested.
The Shai District Police announced that the driver arrived at the checkpoint after traveling from Betar Illit to Tzur Hadassah and he was detained as a suspect.
At this stage, the suspect refused to cooperate with the soldiers that investigated him and he was arrested soon afterwards. A preliminary investigation shows that there were a number of gas cylinders within the vehicle. The bomb disposal teams examined the vehicle and closed off the area in both directions.
Monday is here it’s a new week and month. In fact, tonight is a new month too, the month of Av. We now start the 9-day countdown to Tisha B’Av, the worst day of our national calendar – the day our Holy Temple was destroyed and our 2000-year long exile and Diaspora began.
So lets make a difference and help now! http://midnightabbi1eligoldsmith.wordpress.com/2011/07/20/a-short-tribute-to-a-great-cause-bet-shemesh-educational-center/
Baba Elazar was brutally murdered right before Shabbat (see Friday’s post). Yet, the sun rose today as usual. That doesn’t mean we’re back to business as usual…
How many wake-up calls do we need to get our act together? Outside of a few alligator tears, have the brutal murders of the Fogel family, Leiby Kletzky, and Baba Elazar – all of sacred memory – moved us in the slightest to better ourselves?
The first Intifada began with rock-throwing. The rocks became knives, but nobody woke up. The knives…
