But what's the "funeral?
I saw somewhere"ליוו  אותו בדרכו האחרונה", what does that mean? Is it just a memorial?
I guess eulogies.. hespeidim

What does it mean when a funeral is held for a hostage hy"d whose body is being kept by Hamas ym"s?
I was asking because in the videos there's clearly a procession and burial. I just watched the video and heard the father saying that they were burying blood that they gathered from the tank.hy"d

And while you're at it, let the shomer Yisroel know what you think (especially if you are a constituent) https://www.schumer.senate.gov/contact/message-chuck
Here's a link for anyone else wanting to email him

https://www.fetterman.senate.gov/contact/

I still can't believe that in the end he is the voice of reason in the senate. Moral clarity without hyperbole.
Done and done, thanks!

Ok. So there you go. They are burying the blood. Even if they had the body, they they would bury the blood.
ליוו  אותו בדרכו האחרונה", what does that mean?
I would say What he meant was that this was not the way they wanted to bury him.  They are burying him in the 'last way' they can. And the least preferred

No. That expression means a funeral where the person is accompanied on his last journey...

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I don't see the entire tweet (filter), but what I do see, reminded me of what I was thinking this morning as I was getting soaked to the skin by the gishmei bracha in JLM:

The weather until now has been pretty much a non-factor as could be. We've had quite a temperate winter and not tons of rain, and even that doesn't quite affect the landscape in the sandy soil of gaza as it does in the mud of Ukraine (see WWII...)
The winter is coming to an end. The needs for water and protection from the sun and heat (possibly as soon as the beginning of nissan) will put quite a stress on both the IDF (supply lines and amount of time a troop can be active in the field) as well as exacerbating the "humanitarian" crisis...
On the other hand, Hamas will lose the benefit of cloud cover obscuring its activities...

Today's WSJ editorial on Biden's new two-state solution - Michigan and Nevada.
Quote: What Henry Kissinger once said about Israel having no foreign policy, only domestic politics, Israelis are now saying about America.

A reporter that daily at the State Department briefing goes after Israel with very little pushback from Miller.

Said Arikat (a Palestinian journalist and the Washington bureau chief for Jerusalem-based newspaper Al-Quds)


This guy sits daily and makes up blood libels about Israel.

Why would a niche report for a niche newspaper have such a prominent place at the USSD daily briefing?
Why are there no Israeli (or Jewish, right-wing) reports asking real questions?

There has not been a single anti-Hamas pro-Israel question for weeks!

This is a good tweet to respond to anyone showing video evidence of Gaza humanitarian disasters.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
