Don’t play politics with genocide


From the Times of Israel by David J. Michaels, the Director of United Nations and Intercommunal Affairs at B'nai B'rith International, which maintains full-time, accredited representation at UN bodies worldwide.


At the United Nations, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas asserted last month that Israel's efforts to protect its citizens have amounted to "genocide."
He did so, in language never remotely reciprocated by Israel, despite well knowing the nature of his current partners in Hamas, which had violently ended Abbas's rule in Gaza, tossing his loyalists off buildings there.
In 1948, three years after the end of the Holocaust, two events represented a pivotal rejoinder to that most systematic of genocides. The State of Israel was founded – stemming a 2,000-year Jewish exile pervaded by persecution. And the U.N. General Assembly adopted its Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, to help ensure that no people would again be subjected to massive violence of the most unprovoked, calculated and indiscriminate kind.


News from the Benè Berith Giovani Rome - Stefano Gaj Tachè Lodge in Italy


The Benè Berith Giovani Rome - Stefano Gaj Tachè Lodge, which President is Mister Angelo M. Di Nepi, regained vitality over the 10 last months and is very active in the field of Tzedakà, training and interfaith dialogue:
To encourage the experience of studying and working in the State of Israel, the Lodge promoted a grant of € 500.00 for young deserving people between 18 and 30 years old with few economic opportunities. This scholarship was dedicated to Stefano Gaj Tachè.
During the last holidays of Purim and Pesach, the Lodge has been active in giving Torah classes and collecting funds for the construction of fod parcels intended for Jewish families in economic difficulties.
At the end of June, the Lodge sent its representatives to the interreligious meeting, the El Conference.
In July, it organized, together with other associations, a lecture at The Great Sinagogue of Roma with the Chied Rabbi of Rome, Riccardo Di Segni and Rav Colombo in memory of the three young Israeli boys killed by terrorism : Eyal, Gilad and Naftali.
Recently the Lodge purchased some siddurim for the sinagogue of Tel Aviv on Rehov Ben Yehuda, subject to a fire that destroyed everything, including many prayer books.

A three-month-old baby is dead and at least seven pedestrians are hurt in Jerusalem after an Arab driver plowed into people waiting at a Light Rail station close to the National Police headquarters on Wednesday evening, officials said.
"There was a suspect vehicle that hit and struck nine people that were waiting at the train stop. As a result the suspect tried to flee the scene and was shot by police officers in the vicinity," Israeli Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told The Algemeiner.
Hospital officials at Hadassah Mt. Scopus announced the death of the infant, Chayah Zissel Bron, shortly after 8 p.m., after doctors tried to stabilize the unconscious child's condition, from a severe head wound in the attack.


Prevent Hamas From Re-Arming Before Investing in Gaza by B'nai B'rith

By Daniel S.Mariaschi from the Algemeiner


Will the reconstruction of Gaza also mean a serious effort to prevent the re-arming of Hamas? One without the other is folly.

And yet the international donor community seems to discount the imperative of seeking the prevention of Hamas re-arming before turning over piles of cash.
