American-Israeli terror victims invited to Obama speech

My friends at One Family sent me the press release below, announcing that some victims of 'Palestinian' terrorism who have American citizenship have been invited to attend President Obama's speech later today.
Obama Makes Special Invitation to American Victims of Palestinian Terror

Thursday, March 21st, Jerusalem: Through an ongoing relationship with OneFamily Fund (Israel’s national organization dedicated to terror victims and their families), President Obama’s has invited certain American and Israeli victims of terror to his speech at Binyanei Hauma on Thursday, March 21, 2013.

Included in the delegation attending Obama’s speech are Moshe Silinsky injured in a terror attack in 2013, Iriya Mordechai whose husband was murdered in 2001, Naftali Moses whose
son was murdered along with seven other boys his age in 2008 while they were in their school
library, and Rebecca Fuhrman injured in a Jerusalem attack in 2011.

Osher Twitto, a now 13 year old boy from southern Israel was personally invited by President
Obama to attend. He was only eight years old when a Qassam rocket exploded next to him. Doctors were forced to amputate Osher's left leg.

In 2008, four months after Osher was injured, Obama came to Israel as part of his campaign for President of the US. Osher was transported out of the hospital to meet Obama and shake his hand. He told Osher then that if he was elected President, he will meet him again, “In the White House.” President Obama has gone to great lengths to try and fulfill this promise. His office has been working with OneFamily for over a year in an interest to continue their “friendship.”

Shira Applebaum-Maresky is the daughter of Dr. David Applebaum, a prominent physician
originally from Detroit, and sister of Nava Applebaum. They were both murdered in a restaurant in Jerusalem at midnight as they were having a father/daughter heart to heart talk the night before Nava was to be married.

Moshe Silinsky, aged 17, was stabbed in the abdomen at the Tapuach Junction on January 29th
of this year. His father grew up in New Jersey, his mother in North Carolina. The brutal stabbing was barely covered by the American press. “I am a walking reminder that terrorism is still very much a part of our daily reality in Israel, and that we are not safe simply walking on our streets. I hope Obama brings that message home with him.”

Shmuel Silinsky, Moshe’s father, told us: “The Palestinian who did this to my son is 20 years old. That means he was born the same year that the Oslo Accords were signed, an agreement
was supposed to include "education for Peace". Actions like this ought to show President Obama

Well, it's nice that they were invited. But I hope it's only the first step in a new effort to find and punish - under American law - the perpetrators of these and other heinous acts of terror. So far, Obama (and has predecessors) have done nothing on that front.
