Kfir Brigade's Netzah Yehuda (Haredi) Battalion 300 Strong March Through the City
In honour of the 49th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem 300 members of the Netzah Yehuda battalion marched from Gan Sacher Park, up Bezalel Street, down Ben Yehuda, along King George to Jaffa road through Jaffa Gate and the Jewish Quarter to the Kotel. Police closed streets to allow the soldiers who were dressed out in full combat gear, to pass through the city. What a beautiful site to see our boys singing as they proudly march through our City with the flag of Israel!
The rabbis of the Nahal Haredi Foundation and the Shiluv Menatzeah~IDF Haredi Alumni Association (which accompanies the soldiers during and after their military service) joined the soldiers as they passed their offices and marched alongside them.
At the Kotel Plaza a ceremony was held describing the power in the connection between their battalion, Jerusalem, and the Nation of Israel.

The PA is so full of crap it is a miracle they haven't slithered down a sewer by now. While screaming about Israel not wanting peace, they have the chutzpah to glorify a murdering scumbag as a "martyr".
Bear in mind that the young man so brutally murdered, Taylor Force, was an American Tourist and Not Jewish. He was enrolled in an MBA program in Vanderbilt University and came to Israel as part of his studies to “expand his understanding of global entrepreneurship and also to share his insights and knowledge with start-ups in Israel.” There was absolutely no reason for Taylor Force to be attacked. He was good person trying to contribute to a better world!!
The barbarian who slaughtered this young man, also wounded eleven other people in the attack before he was finally shot dead. His contribution to this world = < 0.
This has nothing to do with fake land claims, or false claims of oppression or apartheid or any other lies the PA and thugs dream up. It is about pure primitive hatred bred into each child and nurtured till they die. They are a people filled with vile, overflowing, hate. They want all Jews and non-muslims Dead! They can't even get along with each other. When is the world going to wake up??
Everyone Should Watch And Learn! Their Hate Knows No Bounds!!

Anyone who lives in Jerusalem knows that the rest of the world just cannot imagine, or even begin to understand what life is like.
Each day is a discovery, a surprise, a shock, a warm feeling, a mystery, etc. Jerusalem Is The Center Of The World! While there are many who find it horrible (among other things) those of us who choose to stay do so because we instantly know there is no other place on earth for us to be.
Granted, it is hard to live here. The conditions are poor~unless you have a lot of money. The wages very, very low and the work much "less" than most would do in other countries. Not an advertisement to make people want to call this "home".
What Jerusalem, and all of Eretz Israel has is "spirit". That intangible thing that reaches down to your insides and makes them fee alive, well, and happy. My favorite example came from an Israeli woman who had gone to America to visit for two months. In her words (I paraphrase here):
Everything was so big~the land, the homes, the cars, the stores. The variety of goods of every kind was amazing...but it was not Israel. In America there was no "real" heart in the people. When I got back to Israel, as I stood in line for Customs and Security I watched the people cutting into line and the animated arguments and conversations (it is sometimes hard to tell the difference). When an Israeli woman pushed me and tried to cut into line I grabbed her and gave her a big kiss on the cheek and told her how good it felt to be home!!
Only an Israeli can understand this, only a Jew can feel the deep longing for the land when they are away. For all the warts and rough edges, this is our country~My Country, and I Love It!!

I Would Recommend All Jews Attend at Least Once...
The Blessing began when Moses first blessed Aaron and has continued to this day. Jews traveled to Jerusalem to hear the blessing on the "High Holidays" before "islam" was even thought of. In Jerusalem, we hear the Birkat Kohanim every morning in synagogue.
- יְבָרֶכְךָ יהוה, וְיִשְׁמְרֶךָ
- May the LORD bless you and guard you...
- (Yevhārēkh-khā Adhōnāy veyishmerēkhā...)
יָאֵר יהוה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וִיחֻנֶּךָּ
- ("Yāʾēr Adhōnāy pānāw ēlekhā viḥunnékkā...)
May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you...
- ("Yāʾēr Adhōnāy pānāw ēlekhā viḥunnékkā...)
- יִשָּׂא יהוה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם
- May the LORD lift up His face unto you and give you peace...
- ("Yissā Adhōnāy pānāw ēlekhā viyāsēm lekhā shālōm.")
