Part of the tragedy

. . . is that the refugees from Syria and other West Asian countries are inadvertently bringing with them some of the very murderers from whom they're desperately trying to flee.

Psalm 82, the psalm for Tuesday/yom shlishi, really jumped off the page when I recited it this morning:

ג  שִׁפְטוּ-דַל וְיָתוֹם;    עָנִי וָרָשׁ הַצְדִּיקוּ.
3 Judge the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
ד  פַּלְּטוּ-דַל וְאֶבְיוֹן;    מִיַּד רְשָׁעִים הַצִּילוּ.
4 Rescue the poor and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
