THE DREADFUL KILLINGS IN TOULOUSE

I’m outraged and appalled at the tragic killings of the Jewish family in Toulouse, which may well be connected to previous murders of soldiers from N Africa. It would appear that the gunman is acting out a grudge against people of Jewish faith, possibly against immigrants in general.

What is he trying to prove? Does he really think that killing innocent people – and children –  will do anything other than draw down the wrath of the law and of the community on him?

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families, so unexpectedly losing their loved ones. Death out of a clear sky.

MOURNER’S KADDISH
An English Translation

Glorified and sanctified be God’s great name throughout the world which He has created according to His will. May He establish His kingdom in your lifetime and during your days, and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon; and say, Amen.

May His great name be blessed forever and to all eternity.

Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored, adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be He, beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen.

May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us
and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

He who creates peace in His celestial heights, may He create peace for us and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

    1. Today’s news of the shoot-out raises yet more questions about his identity – if he is a member of Al Qaida then this would account for his targeting the Jewish population.

  1. Saw about that on the news – seems they might be disgraced soldiers behind the killings – seems this wasn’t the first and they fear won’t be the last – appalled they should pick on easy targets like children – for anyone to lose a life in this way is sickening, even more so when its a child.

    1. It can really make your soul shrink, PP – but I always try to remember that there are millions of people doing great things everywhere in the world to help others, who are always going to be unsung by our media, who are only interested in bad and negative news.
