US President Barack Obama was welcomed in Israel last week with the expected fanfare.
Honor guards and photo-ops, handshakes and press conferences. State dinners and childrens choirs, speeches to university students (unless you study in Ariel), and wreath-laying ceremonies were also on the agenda.
Whether this was a trip aimed at improving the presidents public relations and popularity, or if the intention was truly to discuss and implement decisions regarding important matters such as Iran, Syria and the Palestinians, while the worlds attention was on Jerusalem, another significant and interconnected story, albeit a tragic one, was developing just an hour away in a Petah Tikva hospital.
While receiving only limited media coverage, as of this writing, two-year-old Adele Biton, the youngest daughter and child of Yakir residents Rafi and Adva Biton, remains fighting for life.
Driving home from Ariel on Route 5 after a visit with their mother and grandmother, Adva and three of her daughters were wounded (the oldest daughter was not in the car at the time) when Palestinian terrorists hurled not pebbles, or small rocks, but what looks like large concrete blocks at the Bitons car, causing it to swerve and ram into a truck parked on the side of the road.
Adele, is all of our daughters. Please pray for a full recovery for Adele Chaya bat Adva!

The President says we should put ourselves in the palestinians shoes when things happen. Like we do with the Canadians.
