Gal Kobi Qitoun Checkpoint
The LORD opens the eyes of
the blind.
The LORD lifts up
those who are bowed down;
the LORD loves the righteous.

The LORD watches over
the strangers; he upholds
the orphan and the widow,
but the way of the wicked
he brings to ruin.
Psalm 146:8-9

Prayers for Peacemakers, September 25, 2013
Pray for the family of Staff Sgt. Gal Kobi, killed by a
Palestinian sniper this week in Hebron. 
In reprisal, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu authorized
settlers to take over a building in Hebron near the checkpoint that CPTers
monitor every morning for school patrol. 
Having a new Israeli settlement near the checkpoint will greatly increase the
physical risk to children and teachers coming to school, as well as making the
lives of the people living in the neighborhood a nightmare.
