"Chabad-Lubavitch is a major movement within mainstream Jewish tradition with its roots in the Chassidic movement of the 18th century. In Czarist and Communist Russia, the leaders of Chabad led the struggle for the survival of Torah Judaism, often facing imprisonment and relentless persecution for their activities."

Yahoo has a story about a dad carrying his “dead” baby. I posted the story of the three killed and the fake deaths of Gazans to the comments section. Yahoo removed my posts.
