Friday, 21 November 2014 | In the wake of this week's terrorism slaughter of rabbis at prayer in their Jerusalem synagogue, Israelis are continuing everyday life. But tensions are high. Recent reports indicate that a record number of Israelis are buying guns. For their part, some Arabs here are said to be afraid of going to work for fear of coming under attack simply because of their ethnicity.
A day after the massacre of five Israelis at a Jerusalem synagogue, the Jordanian parliament agreed to a request on Wednesday [Nov. 19] by MP Khaled Hussein al-Atta to read a prayer from the Quran in memory of the two terrorists, Rassan and Uday Abu-Jamal.
Father Gabriel Naddaf, a Nazareth-based Greek Orthodox Christian priest of Aramean background, has become a symbol and vocal witness of the situation for Christians in Israel, and how that differs from the way Christians are treated everywhere else in the Middle East.
