Shlomo Died Yesterday...Baruch Dayan Emet

Shared from a post a friend made on Facebook - thanks, Moshe...

Baruch Dayan Emet. Blessed be the True Judge.

 Shlomo Slonim, one of the last survivors of the 1929 Massacre in Hebron, has passed away. He was one and a half years old when the Arab rioters wounded him in the head.

 The rioters broke down the door of his house, and brutally murdered the members of the Slonim family. Shlomo. a toddler, was seriously wounded by an axe blow, and lost consciousness.

Hours later, after the massacre was over, Shlomo was found lying underneath his parents' corpses. Shlomo grew up, raised a family, and became a good friend of the re-established Jewish community in Hebron.

Once a year, he would come to Hebron to attend the memorial service for those massacred in 1929, and to say Kaddish at the graves of his parents.

Today [Oct. 26], at the age of 86, Shlomo rejoined his family.

May his memory be a blessing.

I'm still reading though I haven't commented. I've become addicted to Israel's daily assaults from PA & Hamas, et all; since you gave me a window seat to all the horror last summer.

Here are a few articles that place blame squarely where it belongs on Obama & Kerry & the obtuse State Dept.
