Terror Alert in Jerusalem

IsraelNN.com 19:42 May 16, '04 / 25 Iyar 5764

A terror alert was declared in Jerusalem a short time ago based on intelligence community information of a planned terror attack.
"Master of the world, the people of Israel are your tephillin (allusion to a Talmudic passage in tractate "Menachos" - LB); when a simple Jew drops his tephillin on the ground, he picks them up and kisses them. When the people of Israel suffer and are thrown in the dust, isn't it proper that you should pick them up and kiss them?"
--Rebbe Levi Yitschak of Berditshev, Ukraine, late 1700's
