Check out their amazing project to honor the lives of their boys at http://unityprize.org/en

May the memory of Gilad, Naftali, and Eyal be a blessing.

8. May 31st, The newest outrageous lie. via standWithUs:

1 million years

The official Palestinian Authority Tourism website states that “Palestine” has “a history of over 1 million years.” …Really? The use of the term Palestine was only widely recognized as a name for the region in 135 CE when the Romans took over and named the region Syria-Palaestina. Additionally, there has never been an independent state of Palestine in the region. In contrast, the Kingdom of Israel was established in 1000 BC and Jews have maintained a continuous presence in the land for over 3,000 years despite multiple expulsions.

11. June 1st- this is an issue that has been continually heating up in Israel- the right of Jews to worship in their holiest site. When we glorify ourselves before the world as a country where there is freedom of worship and religion to all religions and denominations, we mean everyone except ourselves- Jews.

Yeshiva head expelled from Temple Mount for closing his eyes“, from Arutz 7.
