While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

Rabbis and scholars who daily attend institutions at Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem heard a loud explosion today (Monday) while learning, from an improvised explosive device thrown by Arabs across the separation fence, close to the window of Rachel 's Tomb.

A Jerusalem police spokesman said, "A short while ago, an object was thrown at the Tomb of Rachel, near the wall of the facility; there were no casualties and no damage was caused."

Rabbi Tzvi Uziyahu, one of the Rabbis of Rachel's Tomb institutions, said: "By G-d's grace we had a miracle - if G-d forbid the explosives had ignited, there would have been many casualties at the bus stops and at the entrance to the tomb. Studies and prayers at Rachel's Tomb in spite of the security situation, and the overall activities and studies in the area continued and will continue as usual in the coming hours and in the midnight Kollel," he said.
