This verse conveys a sense that the enemy lurks on all terrains and in all locations, and is impossible to escape. Unfortunately, even after arriving on the shores of Eretz Yisrael following the Holocaust, Jewish refugees from Europe encountered a situation similar to that described in this verse. Having survived the Nazis, these Jews were met by a new enemy: The local Arab population, which fought violently to keep them away from their ancient homeland. This enemy has continued to pursue and terrorize Jews in Israel until today. On Friday night, 70 year old Yosef Salomon was murdered in cold blood along with his grown children Chaya and Elad in their family home in the Jewish settlement of Neve Tsuf. The family had gathered to celebrate the birth of their newest family member earlier that morning. Elad Salomon, 36, leaves behind his wife and five young orphans.
