The war against Hamas and the volunteers (7)

Continuation. For previous materials click herehereherehere, here and here

Its already started the 4th month since that terrible day of October 7th. From October 31 to the end of 2023, 172 IDF soldiers were killed during the ground operation in Gaza. The first days of the New Year we didn’t count much losses, but over the last two days 10 more names were added, and in total on the morning of January 11, 97 days since the war started, 185 soldiers were killed.

In my last sixth article I continue to talk about Israel’s war against the Hamas killers and their patrons from the “free” world, about the volunteers work and alot was said about the dead Israeli heroes. About some of them it was told very detailed. The article contains many photographs, including from funerals, videos, memories of loved ones and interviews on television.
Of course, this is incredibly tiring work that had to be done from early morning until late evening, often ending well after midnight and sometimes lasting the entire next day. Espesially when you do it in 3 languages. In addition, a number of problems occured; Not all the videos from YouTube were accepted by the website; it accepted them in one place, but not in the other. I explain it so that readers understand why the video itself is not included, but only a hyperlink. I decided that I would hold out until the end of 2023.
In the coming year, of course, it is impossible to maintain such a rhythm alone, and I hope that there will be some who will join in, and then together it will gradually be possible to tell about every Israeli hero.

In the 7th photographic material, I continue to tell about the largest volunteer center, located at the EXPO Center in Tel Aviv, where people continue to come from various countries.

I turn to volunteers from different countries who help at the Expo center or other places (hospitals, etc.) to send pictures with a story about themselves and how they feel in Israel at the present time and how important it is now to come to Israel to a solidarity visit.
I ask the Israeli volunteers to send photographs that they take themselves along with the captions of the names in Hebrew and English.

The war against Hamas and the volunteers (4)

Continuation. For previous materials click here, here and here.

November 7th, we marked one month since that terrible morning when Hamas killers radically changed the lives of all Israelis.  At the same time, little changed in the world; these “poor and innocent” non-humans still have great support.

It was not easy to get to the Expo center from Petah Tikva by bus, since I took more than 20 kg with me clothes and shoes.
On this day, the agricultural market was open again, although there were significantly fewer buyers than at the end of the week.  Among the volunteers I met one, with whom I was on Friday, October 27th.
Benny S… from …
Nitzan … and Tamar … from …
Mira Artzi Padan, a yoga instructor who helped with the sales and then bought some for herself
After leaving the place of sale, I talked to a person who bought a cardboard of vegetables and fruits, whom I had previously noticed when he was talking with volunteer Benny, and asked him to take a photo.  He left the purchase with his wife, returned and said that Benny is his friend and that he would ask him for the link of the website.

Rutie Miller and Eden … from …
Just as I was about to leave, I noticed a group of people with badges who had arrived.  It turned out that these were members of the WJC (International Jewish Congress) who had came to Israel for 3 days.
Yoni Hammerman. Director a program “The Next Generation” of the World Jewish Congress. New York
Daniel Radomski. Head of strategy and programs of the World Jewish Congress. New York. In the center… … from, left … … from …
Adam Shapiro (Montreal) and Adela Cojab (Mexico)
The visit ended with a popular Israeli psalm “How good and how pleasant to sit with brothers together”.

הנה מה טוב ומה נעים
שבת אחים גם יחד

We’ll win together!

Am Israel Chai!

P.S. from the editor belisrael

Please send details of those who recognize themselves in the photos (full name, place of residence…). You can also send other photos and video that will be added to the publication. And also the Facebook page address.

I will accept a family from the South or North to Petah Tikva. Perhaps also alone.
Preference for people in liberal professions.
There is a bedroom with a balcony and a room for one.
Nice house, convenient location.
