With a heavy heart we mourn with Israel. Sunday, a terrorist rammed his truck through a group of pedestrians in Jerusalem's Talpiot neighborhood.
Four Israelis were killed: Erez Orbach, Yael Yakutiel, Shir Hajaj and Shira Tzur. The oldest of the murdered soldiers was just 22 years old.
While Israel mourns, Palestinians are celebrating in the streets. Hamas held a massive midnight rally after news of the attack broke. In Gaza, people handed out candy to passing cars. Fatah, the party of Palestinian President Abbas, celebrated the attack on its official social media.
Palestinian leaders incite terror and the Palestinian Authority pays nearly $140 million a year to terrorists and their families.
Over the past 15 months, we’ve had to send too many of these emails. It’s not just another headline across the screen. These were four young lives. Four brothers, sisters, sons, daughters.
TIP will continue fighting until the world hears Israel's pain.
Shira. Shir. Erez. Yael. We will never forget you. May your memories be a blessing.

PS: We started a petition at IsraelIsUnderAttack.com demanding the world stop Palestinian incitement that has fueled this terror wave. The Palestinian government relies on the millions in international aid it receives – and that gives world leaders a powerful voice to pressure and influence Palestinian officials.
