  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left.

Philippines Before Elections: Guerilla Warfare

75 students and teachers were kidnapped and held hostage in the Philippines. 15 of the students were released after intensive negotiations between the terrorists and the local authorities.

This morning, in the little town of Prosperidad in the Agusan del Sur province, 19 armed men took over an elementary school and held 75 students and teachers hostage.

Security forces that arrived on the scene began negotiations with the kidnappers, and were able to secure the release of 15 hostages, all children. According to the report, the terrorists took over the school after a clash with government forces in a neighboring village, and while escaping, they took the hostages as human shields.

Last week, Martial law was imposed on other side of the island in Maguindanao province last weekend after a political massacre there left 57 local citizens and foreign journalists dead.

 The violence in the country is increasing daily, though it isn't anything new for the residents of the Philippines. The country has a long history of violence during elections, between Muslims and Communist rebels.
