Lebanese War Widow: To be Victimized by Olmert’s “Realignment”??



Lebanese War Widow’s Home in Danger by Hillel Fendel


IDF officers arrived at the home of Maj. Ro’i Klein this week to inform his widow he had fallen in battle. In a few months, they are liable to return – to remove her from her home and destroy it.

  3. [...] The story of Cpt. Edan Morag, who selflessly set aside his own survival interest to run through a minefield to save his fellow wounded soldiers, exemplifies the highest levels of dedication and battlefield valor, ideals and values inculcated to IDF soldiers since Israel’s modern-day inception. These ideals and values rooted in Torah — pikuach nefesh for one’s fellow Jews. There are many other documented stories of heroism in battle during the Lebanon conflict such as the one posted to this blog after the Lebanon conflict about IDF Officers such as Roi Klein and Amihai Merhavia, as well as all of modern-day Israel’s previous wars.
