Hatuel Memorial March Declares "We Are Here" in J'lem


On the tenth anniversary of the terror murder of Gaza resident Tali Hatuel and four of her children, the "bravery march" in their memory shifted from the Kissufim area along the Gaza border to the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem's Old City. Tali's husband David said, "Ten years since the terrible murder of members of my family, we march in Jerusalem to the [Western] Wall and say 'We are here.'" He stressed, "From the memory of what is dear to us we draw the strength to continue and act on behalf of the people of Israel in the land of Israel."

Also taking part was Housing Minister Uri Ariel who said about 190 million shekels have been budgeted to allow the former residents of Gush Katif to get permanent housing and expressed hope of a return to Gaza. He noted his orange bracelet, which he said he would take off when the last resident enters a permanent home.
