For those who are home, and for those who are on the way. For those who support the historic and just return of the land of Israel to its people, forever loyal to their inheritance, and its restoration.

Recent reports by Palestinian Media Watch documenting Palestinian Authority terror glorification prompted the Israeli government to issue two formal protests to the United States about Palestinian Authority incitement to violence. Since then, PA glorification of terror continues.
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 6, 2010] The official PA daily featured a special full-page section last week to mark the 45th anniversary of the founding of the Fatah movement, including praise for both lethal terror attacks and for terrorists. Among others, the newspaper praised the attack led by Dalal Mughrabi, in which 37 Israelis were killed.
The newspaper also praised Fatah for firing missiles from Lebanon at Israeli cities and towns during the 1980s. More than a third of the page was devoted to the life stories of 10 senior terrorists, who were referred to as "heroic Shahids (Martyrs)".
I visited Hevron in November 2000 after the outbreak of the Rosh Hashanah War to see what could be done to assist in the face of the growing daily attacks on the community. After returning to work for the community in the summer of 2001, a bond and a love was forged that grows to this day. My wife Melody and I merited to be married at Ma'arat HaMachpela and now host visitors from throughout the world every Shabbat as well as during the week. Our goal, "Time to come Home!"
