Have you heard of Daniel Wultz? Probably not.
While there’s been much sympathetic press in recent months and years for Americans like Rachel Corrie (the Islamo-fascist sympathizer who burned the American flag and dove in front of a bull-dozer) and Jill “Zeinab” Carroll (the anti-American, Islamo-fascist sympathizing writer who took on the name “Zeinab”), the press has been virtually silent on Danny Wultz.
His tragic story simply doesn’t fit their agenda. Ditto for a number of extremist, far-right websites who loved Jill “Zeinab” Carroll (and were just outraged when we exposed her real views), but don’t seem to care a lick about this American who is more in need of our help.
Wultz is a young American boy from Miami who was seriously injured in the Islamic Jihad/Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade homicide bombing of a restaurant and bus station in Tel Aviv, Israel during Passover (in April). The terrorist groups who attacked him said he was the perfect “target” because he is not only a Jew, but an AMERICAN.
Why has the press (and those extremist, far-right blogs obsessed with Jill “Zeinab” Carroll and my exposition of her) been silent (with the exception of Israeli media and his hometown Miami paper)? Maybe because our PC media prefers to publicize only America-hating American “victims” and those “attacked” by “villains” like Israel and America.
But we should all care about Danny Wultz. Wultz, a handsome 16-year-old who loved to play basketball, lies in a coma in an Israeli hospital. Doctors had to remove his kidney and spleen, and when his blood stopped circulating properly, they amputated a portion of his leg. He also suffered massive blood loss and multi-system injuries.
All of this because Danny had the misfortune of eating in “Mayor’s Falafel” restaurant. He and his parents came to Israel to celebrate the holiday and visit grandparents. Because the restaurant was kosher for Passover, he went to eat there, his rabbi, Rabbi Yisroel Spalter of the Chabad Lubavitch Center of Weston, told me. Danny wanted to become a rabbi.
After the bombing and the removal of multiple organs, Rabbi Spalter visited Wultz and brought him out of a coma by reading a Biblical passage to him: “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might.” But Rabbi Spalter told me that the pain of his injuries and multiple surgeries was too great for Danny Wultz to endure, so he was put back into an induced coma–a state in which he remains at this time.
Please donate to the fund set up by his synagogue to help save Danny Wultz and pay for his medical care. You may also donate through the One Family Fund, which helps Israeli victims of terror and is helping the Wultz family.
Please also keep Danny, a proud American boy and innocent victim of Islamic terror, in your prayers. (For Jewish prayers, Danny’s Hebrew name is Chaim Naphtali Meir Ben Sarah.)
