The Hero At Bint JbeilTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
From An Unsealed Room we learn that only the day after he was killed, a legend is already growing around the heroism of Major Ro'i Klein, the Golani commander who died in the ambush and fierce battle that took place in Bint Jbeil that took the lives of nine soldiers: "Several members of his battalion confirm the story -- a grenade was lobbed in the midst of the unit under his command. Klein, who was 31 years old, married with two children, made a quick decision and jumped, throwing his body onto the grenade, losing his life, and saving the lives of all of his soldiers."
Yes, every war has its heroes, men and women who hold their country and the lives of their friends to be of greater importance than their own life. For men like Major Klein, unlike the radical Islamists who fight for a violent ideology and hatred, the battle is engaged for the sake of the survival of their country and the establishment of a true and lasting peace. Such a concept is far beyond the ability of the Islamists to comprehend. Their goal is jihad against infidels, the death of Israel and the West, and Islam's domination of the world.
God bless Major Klein and his family for his dedication to peace, the love of his fellow soldiers, and the survival of his country.
