During US President Obama's speech at the UN yesterday (Sept 21, 2011), PA President Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) took a break to say the Jewish prayer, the "Shema."
Was it because he had just heard that his fellow-Palestinian were rioting in Israel and causing injuries to Jews? Could it be that he had just heard that a 16-month-old Israeli baby suffered moderate injuries when a stone struck her head in a Palestinian riot between Tapuah and Migdalim junctions? (Picture from the Samaria Regional Council, released by the family)
Could it be that he heard Palestinians shot at an Israeli car traveling 7 minutes from Kfar Saba on Highway 55 in the Palestinian village of Nabi Alias (Haaretz's favorite peaceful place)? Luckily, the driver wasn't injured, but Police recovered the bullet in his car that had smashed through the windshield.
Mahmoud Abbas: Its almost Rosh HaShana, the Jewish New Year -- you too can repent!
The time for your teshuva is now, and you can still ask your people to stop the hatred, stop the terror and stop the incitement.
Saying the Shma is a good first step.
