Arabs Attack Bat Ayin Jews Who Recited Blessing of the Sun
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
(IsraelNN.com) Dozens of stone-throwing Arabs attacked Jews of the Bat Ayin community, south of Jerusalem, on Wednesday morning. The Jews had gathered on a hill known as Mukhtar Mound, adjacent to Bat Ayin to recite the Blessing of the Sun and to place a cornerstone for the synagogue of a new community on the Jewish-owned land.
The prayers and ceremonies were coordinated with the local regional council and army, which escorted the Bat Ayin residents, Bat Ayin Yeshiva Dean Rabbi Natan Greenberg told Israel National News.
Trouble started after the Jews concluded the Blessing of the Sun at the site, now called Arzei Shlomo (Cedars of Solomon), in memory of 13-year-old Shlomo Nativ, who was murdered in an Arab axe attack last week, and Erez Levanon who was killed by Arab terrorists two years ago. The site was purchased by Jews in the 1930's.
More than 200 Bat Ayin residents walked away from the ceremony and to the site of the planned synagogue, where Chaim Nativ, father of the young terror victim, drove cornerstones into the ground with an axe, the same tool used to murder his child a week earlier. Daniel Winston, said his son, who was a classmate of Shlomo, made the axe handle out of a fig tree....
There is more here.
And then go read Israeli Soldier's Mother here. As if all that is not enough, late last night I heard that those Somali pirates have now also captured a ship with American crew on board.
Somali pirates hijack Danish ship
Despite anti-pirate patrols, pirates seized 15 ships last month
Somali pirates have hijacked a Danish-owned container ship with a 21-strong American crew on board, officials say.
The US-operated 17,000 tonne vessel, named as Maersk Alabama, was seized in the Indian Ocean about 400 miles (645 km) east of the capital, Mogadishu.
The crew members are believed to be safe, the European Union's maritime security force said.
It is the sixth seizure by pirates in recent days, including a British ship and Taiwanese ship taken this week.
Before Wednesday's attack, pirates had boarded a British-owned ship, the Malaspina Castle, in an area heavily patrolled by a European Union taskforce.
The taskforce, consisting of six ships and two planes, is among almost a dozen anti-piracy patrols in the area...
There is more, of course, and you can read it here. And as the insanity continues, I have to ask: WHERE is President Obama? We already know that signals have gone out that Israel is on their own, since PBO ascendency to the White House. Now - again - we have American lives in jeopardy, as PBO traipses around the Islam world assuring them "we are your friend..."
Wake up, PBO! Now is NOT the time to be offering tea to our enemies.
Dangerous times we are living in, and WHERE is President Obama?
"Woke up, got out of bed..."
[update: Just when I thought PBO could stoop no lower when disrespecting America's fallen heroes, I find this on BlackFive:

This is what happens when your President is more interested in being a “citizen of the world” than being a G**Damn American!
Naturally the MSM ignored the story but the Telegraph picked up:
White House officials travelled to France at the start of March to discuss a visit by Mr Obama to Omaha Beach, the site of the American Cemetery, established in 1944 just after D-Day and where 9,387 American personnel are buried. Among them is Theodore Roosevelt Jr the eldest son of the 26th US President....
I could give you the rest, but go read the rest here, AFTER you have taken your bp meds. Let's just say, COB6 ends his post with:
What an absolute friggin’ disgrace!
