Last October it was the turn of Kim Levengrond-Yehezkel, who was killed by a Palestinian Arab terrorist in Barkan. How much beauty has been dissipated, how much life cut short, how many families destroyed, how much future devastated.
Then, an Israeli infant lost her mother. Now a mother has lost her newborn son.
The Israeli boy born in an emergency C-section operation after his mother was seriously injured by Palestinian Arab terrorists in Ofra has died. Shira and Amichai, his mum and dad, will now have to close his eyes and mouth, wrap him in a small sheet and hand the body to the ground, instead of seeing their little boy grow up.
In the name of "resistance" to Israel, all Jews are legitimate goals. Even a pregnant mother. The attack took place while the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was celebrated at the UN. That UN where, last week, the American resolution condemning Hamas terrorism had failed.
Israeli Jews are the only members of the international community whose human rights are not recognized, politically and morally. Not even those of an unborn baby. Between the people of Israel and its genocide - to which a good portion of mankind aspires to varying degrees - there is only the army with the star of David.
This barbaric, silent destruction of Israeli families is one of the great tragedies of our time. Let the earth be light to this little boy.
