listen people, parents of bochurim…please do not temp driving to the places without security. Bochurim don’t go unarmed or without guards. This is very dangerous and you could have Gd forbid, been killed.
Be sensible yeshiva heads, they are young boys with not experience.

Eretz Yisroel is the safest place in the work not dangerous. We can’t be affected by the way the secular world views things we can’t let their view infiltrate our circles. We know what the Rebbe tells us!!

Venishmartem.. es Nafshoseichem…people need to know where NOT to enter,especially in Eretz Yisrael, to do otherwise is irresponsible. Surely the Rebbe has no problem with that Hora’ah, especially to benei Chutz laAretz, who do not know the territory. There is nothing “secular” about being aware of one’s surroundings and not putting people in danger. Boruch Hashem these Bachurim are well.

This is not stam a question of ” we shouldn’t think like the secular world.” This is simply about hanhalla, parents, and students having a realistic view of who our neighbors are and what the results of a wrong turn could be. BH they were spared! We have a mitzva to protect our lives and not to rely on miracles. None of the above contradicts the Rebbe’s teachings. BTW, I have heard several stories of “Waze” taking people to dangerous Arab places in Eretz Yisroel.

They would have killed if they could have. That ‘s what you can expect from these barbarians.

There are clear instructions about WAZE in Yesha

There are clear instructions about WAZE in Yesha

Most Israelis know that there are clear instructions NOT to use WAZE when navigating anywhere in Judea and Samaria. It is simply not safe, because the software does not and cannot differentiate between the changing boundaries of the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas and those legally accessible by Israeli civilians. NO ONE SHOULD BE USING WAZE ANYWHERE IN JUDEA OR SAMARIA. PERIOD. IT IS NOT SAFE. That was publicized in all media and it is known everywhere in the country.

Thanks for letting us know that they were sheltered. The people who sheltered them were endangering their own lives! Amazing.

Waze is safe
Guest
Waze is safe

it has an option that is on by default called. They most probably didn’t use waze or didn’t follow directions, also there are large Red signs in front of each road that leads to those areas, in 3 languages warning that it is a danger to enter them.

“Avoid dangerous areas, and areas A,B (which are prohibited by Israeli law)

And they want a TWO STATE SOLUTION?

And they want a TWO STATE SOLUTION?

Things like this need to be publicized so the world can see a two-state solution is IMPOSSIBLE with these barbarians.

Unless this was a dangerous mistake made by some naive American bochurim who had come to tour independently and were not affiliated with a particular group, yeshivah etc. this should not have been allowed to happen. It should be made crystal clear by schools, touring agencies etcetera that no one is to rent a car to go touring or kever-hopping on their own. This should only be permitted in supervised groups, traveling with armed personnel in bullet proof buses. Often free-world kids don’t really get it; they forget that we are, unfortunately, still in galus, even in eretz Yisroel.

yesterday after Shabbos my daughter and a friend took the wrong bus and ended up in Hebron – or at least at the edge. They are attending seminary in Ramot and eventually called the seminary, realizing they were lost, and the seminary sent a cab to get them. We were in communication with the girls throughout and it was a bit nerve wracking. I am not aware of the details, exactly, but they were not picked up until about 2 a.m. Israel time and at home in bed until around 3. I may be off half an hour either way.… Read more »
