Calls For Another Million Martyrs
Sheva – Israel National News) CNN repeatedly aired Yasser Arafat yesterday
saying that he wants peace with his Jewish "cousins" in Israel
– while at the same time he was calling for “one million martyrs”
to march on Jerusalem. Arafat made the call while addressing a crowd

Nowhere Is Safe…
A happy and beloved five-year-old girl was one of four people who were
murdered in their family homes this week in the quiet community of Adora.
Several residents were stunned when Palestinian terrorists disguised
as trusted soldiers from Israel cut through the community’s protective
perimeter fencing and snuck into homes, burst into bedrooms and fired
bullets into innocent people, including children.
Danielle Shefi, 5, was playing with her
mother, Shiri, and two brothers in her parents’ bedroom when the terrorists
invaded their bedroom and sprayed them with gunfire. Shiri struggled
with the terrorists to try and stop the assault. She managed to close
the door of the bedroom and hid with the children underneath the bed.
But Shiri’s attempts to protect her children from the terrorist invasion
were futile. Her tiny daughter Danielle was shot in the head by the
terrorist at point-blank range and died.
Before the Palestinian terrorists had
fled the area, their home invasion serial killings left 4 people dead
and 7 more bloody from the attacks. (Full

Lady in Prague
Terezin– U.S.First Lady Laura Bush with U.S. Ambassador to the Czech
Republic Craig Stapleton honored Holocaust victims in Terezin, the site
of a former Nazi concentration camp. Czech Prime Minister Milos Zeman,
speaking at the annual ceremony marking the camp’s liberation, said
it is important for new generations to remember the past so that such
atrocities might never be repeated.
While history shows that the anti-Jewish propaganda
by Hitler/Goebbels effectively saturated the minds of many to accept
the human extermination, PM Zeman showing wisdom of such history warned
of the dangers from those who would deny the Holocaust.
According to records, the 200 year old
town—also known as Theresienstadt—was transformed by the Nazis into
a camp where Jews from across Europe were massed until they could be
transported to extermination camps. Over 150,000 prisoners entered its
gates. 35,000 died there of stress, hunger and atrocious living conditions,
recounted by Daniela Lazarova of Radio Prague.
U.S. First Lady Laura Bush and representatives
from 25 other nations laid wreaths at a mass grave for some 10,000 Holocaust

those tragic events. We have heard the stories of war heroes and individuals
who risked their lives to save innocent Jews, but rarely, have we heard
of the kind of courage which took place in Bulgaria.
Nearly a Half Century ago 6 million Jews
were murdered in the Holocaust. Axis countries, such as Hungary and
Austria obediently responded to Hitler’s demands to send their Jewish
populations to their deaths, however the Axis country of Bulgaria refused
Hitler’s demands and stood obstinate to protect the innocent. The people
