Wilmington residents pray for peace in Israel

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Conflict in the Middle East continued to grow over the weekend with airstrikes in Gaza and Israel.

An Israeli missile flattened a two-story house in a residential neighborhood in Gaza City today, killing at least 11 civilians. Officials say Israel is targeting homes of wanted militants.

Members of the B’nai Israel synagogue in Wilmington are praying for their loved ones tonight, and for peace in the Middle East.

Things are peaceful at the B’nai Israel. But over 5,000 miles away, along the Gaza Strip, things are anything but peaceful.

In Wilmington, many members of the B’nai congregation fear for their loved ones in Israel.

“The last time I was in Israel, I was at the border of Gaza and Israel and we could hear the rockets and the machine guns going off,” said Gayle Ginsberg, who has family in Israel.

Ginsberg had planned to fly to Israel this week. But as the situation deteriorates, she is reconsidering.

“I’m sure if I decide to go, I’ll be nervous. You can’t help but be nervous. It’s different now because Israel is at war.”

“The missiles can now reach toward Tel Aviv and into Tel Aviv and toward Jerusalem,” said Rabbi Robert Waxman. “So now it’s a different thing.”

Waxman says that people in the United States cannot understand what it is like for those in harm’s way.

“We can’t imagine sitting here on Chestnut St. just if bombs would be coming from Leland. Who would tolerate that?”

While it is impossible to predict how the current conflict will play out, members at B’nai hope their prayers will reach the Middle East.

“God bless everybody in Jerusalem that’s Christian and Arab and Jew,” said Ginsberg. “The world needs to learn peace.”

This morning, President Obama fully backed Israel’s right to defend itself saying, “There is no country on Earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens.”
