Pulitzer Prize for a Picture of Defiance and Heroism

Oded Balilty, an Israeli photographer for the Associated Press, recieved a Pulizer Prize for this picture, also shown below, of a single Jewish girl couragiously resisting an entire line of soldiers who had come to demolish the Jewish community of Amona, located in Samaria, in February 2006.

I have reposted the contents of the relevant page (linked to above):

A lone Jewish settler challenges Israeli security officers during clashes that erupted as authorities cleared the West Bank settlement of Amona, east of the Palestinian town of Ramallah. Thousands of troops in riot gear and on horseback clashed with hundreds of stone-throwing Jewish settlers holed up in this illegal West Bank outpost after Israel’s Supreme Court cleared the way of demolition of nine homes at the site.

February 1, 2006


One thing is for certain: that brave Jewish girl, and all other heroic Jews like her, will recieve their own Prize in the World To Come - a Prize for more valuable than anything that anyone can recieve in this world. Ko HaKavod to them!
