The pharmaceutical prayer of Dafna Meir
Dafna Meir was home with her children when the savage broke in to her home. She had 6 kids, two of them foster children. She struggled with the barbarian to protect her kids, as he stabbed her to death in front of the children, Nazi-style. She was 38. The murderer got away and PLO chief Abbas will proclaim him a hero, as the Israeli Left again proclaims Abbas a peace partner..
The Lord Haw Haw of Israel, Haaretz columnist Gideon Levy, crayoned a column this week in which he endorsed the Swedish Foreign Minister's claim that Israel summarily executes Palestinians. Why should Israel shoot Palestinians holding knives and attempting to murder Jews?, he snorts. It is not like Jews are humans and Jewish lives worth anything.
If the murderer of Dafna Meir had been shot dead as he attacked her in front of her children, Levy would denounce Israel for the barbaric unjustified execution of the terrorist. What about his rights? What about a Miranda warning, a lawyer, a fair trial? A free subscription to Haaretz?
And what about all those innocent SS officers killed in WWII by Allied aggressors, summarily bombed to death with not so much as a Miranda warning?
Dafna Meir, the mother of six murdered yesterday, composed a prayer, published on her blog, based on her experiences in distributing medications to neurosurgery patients at Soroka Hospital (my translation):
May it be Your will, oh Lord, Who created the world and runs it with mercy and grace, that You bless me with the power to distribute medication to Your people of Israel who are in need of salvation, as well as to members of other peoples, under the care of Your faithful servants who perform sacred duties by day and by night, on sabbath and holidays, ceaselessly.
Let me be blessed to comprehend, to understand and to remember at all times that medication is a gift from You and work thanks to You. Let me be blessed to see their effects and to rejoice… Let me be blessed in learning to empathize with the sufferings of patients and let me serve in good health to help them with the tools You provide every day. Amen.
