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.

A group of young Palestinians, including participants from the Fatah youth movement high-school councils in the district, proposed last week to name a street in Nablus after the terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who led the most deadly terror attack in Israeli history: a 1978 bus hijacking in which 37 civilians were killed.
The group said the suggestion to name the street "Shahida (Martyr) Dalal Mughrabi Street" was a protest against Israel's objections to the PA's planned inauguration in March this year of a public square in Ramallah named after Mughrabi. Israel strongly condemned this as an act of incitement to violence.
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!"
