What You Are Not Hearing

Even though you are probably reading every article, blog, website and news release about the "campaign" in Gaza, I want to share something with you that you will not read anywhere else.

It is a story about a dear friend of mine named Yitzchak Neuman. Yitzchak made aliyah from Queens (New York) in 1989 and began his life in Israel studying full time in a Yeshiva. After a few years, his father passed away (back in NY) and during the shiva, his mother asked that he begin his college education right away. Yitzchak was an only child and decided to do what his mother requested. Immediately after the shiva, he came back to Israel and enrolled in Bar Ilan University. In order to continue his Talmudic studies he participated in the Bar Ilan "Bet Midrash" program which combines university study with an intense Judaic program. Things were going well. He was at the top of his class in his Biology major and also the top of the class in the Tamud program.

The year was now 1995 and he was in his final year of Bar Ilan University. At the same time, Yitzchak – like tens of thousands of others - was also very active protesting against the Oslo Accords which were signed in 1993 and which were responsible for shedding a tremendous amount of Jewish blood. Whenever his schedule allowed, he would attend rallies and demonstrations against the horrific "peace process" which had been signed by Rabin and Peres. When Rabin was murdered in November 1995, Yitzchak Neuman sent out an email which said, "Ding dong the witch is dead, the wicked witch is dead." Officials at Bar Ilan – already embarrassed by the fact that Rabin's alleged assassin attended Bar Ilan – were furious over this 11 word email and immediately expelled Yitzchak Neuman from the university.
