Our hearts go out to our brothers and sisters in the State of Israel who are enduring another day of heinous attacks. Palestinians are attacking innocent civilians - including children - with guns, knives and meat cleavers. We have seen the gruesome videos on social media and we are reviled and disheartened. Israel must always be in our thoughts and prayers and we must always stand strong for a safe and secure Israel. I encourage you to read this piece by Jerusalem’s mayor Nir Barkat.
