"The Palestinian Paradox" (3)

"The Real Story in Itamar"

The Shabo Family

"These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren".

Proverbs 6: 16-19

Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Hosea 6:1-2

This town of multi-level stone homes in the hills near Nablus had not yet finished the shloshim, or, month of mourning, for the three teenaged rabbinical students who were murdered here while playing basketball, when last night, tragedy struck once again.

As mothers and daughters prepared for the nearing Sabbath, re-enacting a weekly ritual of baking and bonding, outside, under a full-moon sky and with winds hiding the sound of his approach, a terrorist trained by "The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine" infiltrated this area of 500 families.

At about 9:00 pm, Boaz Shabo was en route from Jerusalem, when his cellphone rang. It was his thirteen year-old daughter, Aviya. She was frantic. One by one, family members who were at home, were shot with an automatic weapon after the terrorist forced himself into their house. She had witnessed it all. "PLEASE, Abba (Daddy), come home quick!" she wailed into the receiver. "They are dying." First hit, was her twelve year-old brother, Tzvika, who had been sitting, reviewing the Torah portion for his upcoming Bar Mitzvah. When the terrorist took aim at Aviya's mother, Rachel, another brother, Neria, 15, tried to act as a human shield to protect her. It was futile. Avishai, 5, the family's youngest, began shrieking, after he awoke from the commotion. The terrorist soon opened fire on his tiny body. The crying stopped. Aviya was shot in the chest and leg as she tried to escape the home that turned to Hell. David, who ran to guard his sister, was bombarded with bullets in his stomach.

As Rachel, the mother, lay dying, she watched her would be protector, Neria, gasp his last breath. As his soul departed, she cried out the words of the martyrs, "Shema Yisrael!" When she peered down at her son's now limp body, she saw their blood beginning to merge. 12 year old Tzvika's last words were: "Shalom, (goodbye), Eema (Momma). I will see you in Shamayim (Heaven)."

Before she expired, Rachel had witnessed the murder of three of her children. As the village's chief of security, Yossi Tuito, engaged in a gun battle with the terrorist, leaving both of them dead, the Shabos' home was somehow set ablaze.

When Boaz Shabo finally arrived at the town's gate, he was met by the hamlet's rabbi. His worst nightmare was confirmed. Immediately, Boaz tore his jacket four times, as a mourning sign for each family member. Instead of Sabbath candles being lit by his wife, this week before sundown Boaz Shabo will light four yahrtzeit (memorial) ones. The dead will be buried a few hundred feet from Boaz's destroyed home, in which he will not even be able to observe the shiva mourning ritual.

Please pray for Boaz and for the surviving children, especially the daughter who witnessed the scene and survived.

Prayer for the Innocents

Just as the blood of Abel cries out for vengeance from the ground,
the slaughter of these innocent souls makes an even louder sound;
So let all of us who trust in God and the power of Christís shed blood,
now turn to Him in fervent prayer, storming Heaven with a flood!

Let all of those with conscience, with sound minds and a pure heart,
turn to God in intercession, remembering all the families torn apart,
with impassioned pleadings and petitions, pray to His throne above,
Lift up those hands and raise your voice, proclaiming God is Love!

Intercede for the mindless terrorists, who say itís a "Jihad",
pray that God will turn their hearts, from being sad, and mad and bad,
pray for all their precious children, who by such hatred are offended,
that they will know the blessed hope, the great day when all is mended!

As our hearts cry out to God for those massacred in their prime,
hear Him whispering back to you, ...saying "vengeance is mine",
send out His Holy word by faith, wearing Godís armor and prevailing,
moving forward in His victory march, the gates of Hell assailing!

So in that place called "Holy Land" where Jesus proved His Love,
be assured by faith Shalom will come, alighting as a dove,
take comfort that the slaughtered souls are now in Shamayim
and that these deviant sons of Islam will one day be judged by HIM!
