The latest and youngest victim of Hamas’s war on Israel is four year old Daniel Tragerman.
This boy did nothing to deserve his fate, except being born into a Israeli Jewish family.
70 years after the Holocaust, where 1.5 million children were murdered for simply being born into a Jewish family, Jewish children are still being targeted because they are Jewish.
Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal claimed in an interview the following:
“We do not target civilians, and we try most of the time to aim at military targets and Israeli bases,”
If it is true that Hamas does not target civilians and only targets military bases, how does he account for the thousands of rockets that have been randomly aimed at Israeli civilian population centers?
An article in the Times Of Israel shares the devastation from the point of view of the youngest members of Israeli society.
Of all of the quotes, the one that truly breaks my heart is the following:
“Mama, I don’t believe in the tooth fairy. How can I believe in magic when there are rockets falling on us.” — Maytal, age 6… she hasn’t even lost her first tooth yet, and so much lost already.
Six year old children should be believing in magic and tooth fairies and everything that is associates with childhood. But these children are learning to deal with a reality that is far beyond their years. I can only imagine the psychological scars these children will have as they grow up.
What would you do if that your child? Would you stand by and let your neighbor harass you and destroy your home? Or would you fight back?
RIP Daniel. You are gone, but never forgotten.
