For Julian …. One of the few who cared …. here are his words
My community of French Hill is the greatest example in Israel of what can be. Israelis of every background, both religious and secular, Palestinians and new immigrants have lived here in harmony for years.
This week we observe the start of the new month of Elul on the Hebrew calendar. A time for reflection and forgiveness … but some things cannot be forgiven.
A few weeks ago a pregnant dog was abandoned on my street and wound up having her six puppies in the bushes on my hill. As all puppies, they were absolutely adorable. But no one wanted them. The Pound is full to capacity with dogs waiting for adoption, but this family was destined to live in the street. They were fed and cared for by neighbours who cared … that is until this morning when ‘animal control’ came with guns and shot them all to death.
Can this be forgiven? How can people be so cruel to creatures of the same God that created them?
French Hill is in mourning today for this family.
Special thanks to those who cared and tried to help.
