Ari Fuld, a 45- year old American Israeli, was stabbed to death in a terror attack on Sunday. He was from the Efrat settlement, a father of four and grandson of a Holocaust survivor.
Shortly before noon on Sunday, a Palestinian teenager stabbed Fuld outside a shopping mall near Efrat, at the Gush Etzion Junction south of Jerusalem. Despite his wounds, Fuld chased and shot at his attacker before collapsing to the ground.
Moshe, Ari’s brother, described him as a man of strong convictions who stood his ground against all odds. A scholar, with a sense of fun, Ari loved his family, his country and his religion. Fuld was the Assistant Director of Standing Together, an organization that supports IDF soldiers.
May the entire family be comforted among all the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. May they know no more sorrow.

There is a video of Arab children being prepared for war against Israelis that is fair warning that Ari Fuld will not be the last victim of Arab terror. It’s long past time to take action against the root causes and the indoctrination which is instilled in the children at the earliest ages and cannot be unlearned. Watch the video HERE.
We agree with the Women in Green. “His memory should be perpetuated by settlement and the application of sovereignty. Any other response would not reflect his strong Jewish identity.”
