Breaking news: Attack at a Jerusalem yeshiva

See here and here for links to reports of the terrorist attack on Yeshiva Mercaz HaRav.

Jameel writes from his perspective as a volunteer with both the Haztala and Magen David Adom (MDA) ambulance corps in Israel.

IsraellyCool's Aussie Dave gives a rundown of today's terrorist attacks on Israel, including the one on Yeshiva Merkaz Harav.

Trep asks us to help future terrorism victims by donating to ZAKA or Magen David Adom , and asks those in Israel to give blood.

CNN reports at least 8 dead at Yeshiva Merkaz Harav, and FOXNews reports the same.

Friday, March 7, 2008 update:

A Simple Jew provides important links about the attacks.

Aidel Maidel asks, “What if this was one of my little girls . . .?,” then links us to Mother in Israel’s list of the dead and wounded, with a request for prayers.

Ezzie and friends are crying and asking for prayers.

Robert, at Seraphic Secret, provides some sad and some infuriating photos, plus his commentary and that of others, and some links. (Check today's and yesterday's posts--some of the permalinks aren't working properly.) Here's a key quote from one of his posts: "The Arabs understand that it's acceptable to murder “settlers.” These brave Jewish pioneers have been so demonized by the liberal press in Israel, Europe and America that they they are blamed for their own murders because, y'know, they brought it on themselves by being too right wing, too Zionistic, too religious, too intent on living in Israel. And of course, the expulsion of the 9,000 Jewish “settlers” from Gaza in 2006 by the Israeli government made it official: it's open season on “settlers."

Harry Maryles, of Emes V'Emunah, discusses the moral relativism of the media, which seems always to root for the (alleged) underdog).

Finally, Mommy's Going Meshugganah asks why no one questions the right of any sovereign nation to defend itself, except when it comes to Israel.
