Christ at the Checkpoint 2012 organiser: “People admired Shehadeh’s ability to stand up to the Israelis”

The yeshiva massacre of 2008 at Mercaz HaRav:

The 8:45 p.m. shooting at the yeshiva in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood broke a two-year lull in terror in the capital and sent students scurrying for cover from a hail of gunfire – a reported 500-600 bullets – that lasted for several minutes.

“There were horrendous screams of ‘Help us! Help us!'” recounted Avrahami Sheinberger of the ZAKA emergency rescue service, one of the first to respond to the scene. “There were bodies strewn all over the floor, at the entrance to the yeshiva, in various rooms and in the library.”

The teenage victims:

The victims of the Mercaz...

Arabs believe the act was planned by Mohamed Shehadeh:

IDF forces located and killed terrorist Muhammad Shehadeh and three other senior terrorists, aged 35 to 48, in the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Bethlehem Wednesday.

Arab sources said Shehadeh was the mastermind behind the deadly terror attack on the Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva in Jerusalem a week ago. Israeli security officials flatly denied the claim.

When Shehadeh was assassinated, Christ at the Checkpoint 2012 organiser Sami Awad said:

‘People admired Shehadeh’s ability to stand up to the Israelis,’

Is planning the murder of teenagers, something that Sami Awad considers “standing up to the Israelis“?

Why does Awad not comment on the “peace” and “justice” of murdering eight teenagers, instead dwelling on how he was popularly “admired”?

I find it incredible, that Christian and Messianic leaders are willing to participate in the Christ at the Checkpoint conference, without a greater awareness of who is organising proceedings.

    The bible say, before you accuse your brother look at the speck in your own eyes, I have known Sami for more than 20 years and I know that he is a peace lover and a justice Seeker. I never heard him advocate violence. Now, how come known of you have ever crticized Israel when it killed a whole family in Gaza? Or on what they did in Gaza, 3500 persons killed of whom 50% are children and women. Israel is not a peace loving country and you know it. And please stop using the anti semetic line, it is getting old, we are in a new era. I if condem Israel for wrong doing that does not mean I am ant semtic, my best friends are Jewish and I love them. Let us stop this victim mentallity and speak the truth and stand for what is right and just Please. I pray for you and pray for everyone who is full of hate that the Lord will fill their hearts with love.

    “Let us stop this victim mentallity and speak the truth and stand for what is right and just Please. I pray for you and pray for everyone who is full of hate that the Lord will fill their hearts with love.”

    It is a pity that He has not seen fit to fill yours with the necessary compassion and respect for truth that would have guided you to an understanding that the Israelis did not kill ‘3500 in Gaza of whom 50% were children and women’. The determined retaining of lies about Jews so as to confirm ancient libels is not the mark of a lover of Christ but of an anti-Semite.
