This post is to share a must watch youtube video relating to a story I read on March 17th from The New York Sun. Let me express upfront that I have no relation to the entity that created the video and I forewarn you now that it contains extremely graphic footage.
Due to the horrible tragedy in Japan and the constant updates regarding the civil war in Libya the story in this post has unfortunately been overshadowed. It’s about the Fogel family who lived in the Israeli village of Itamar on the West Bank, a known hotbed for Palestinian terrorists.
Five members of the seven person Fogel family were brutally murdered by terrorists. They broke into the family’s home as they slept and slit the throat of Udi, his three children Elad, Yaov and Hadas (a three-month old infant) and stabbed to death his wife Ruth.
Luckily, two of the children did survive; an unnoticed two-year-old that slept in his bed and the 12-year-old daughter who came home that night to find her family dead.
It would be nice to close our eyes and imagine that we live in a world where evil like this doesn’t exist, but that would not be reality. People need to be aware of when evil acts like the savage killing of a three-month old infant takes place.
If we ignore, if we turn our heads, how then will help be provided? Or should the good forces of the world not put forth such effort? Should we ignore when five members of a family are violently murdered in their own home for no reason at all other than the fact they are Jewish?
These are tough questions no doubt, but questions that need to be asked and need to be discussed. I believe good forces should put forth the effort to help and we should not ignore stories like this. We must not shy away from shedding light on the religious extremists who use the name of Allah to kill innocent people!
