Tamar Fogel asks Livni to take action on behalf of Pollard

The amazing middot (character) of 12-year-old Tamar Fogel, the orphan whose parents, brother and sister were murdered by Palestinians last Friday night, are coming to light. Last week, she said she would be strong and overcome, and be the mother of her brothers. 

In the video above, Tamar Fogel speaks in her first interview, hardly mentioning herself and her own pain, but speaking with all of her heart about the importance of unity between all parts of the Jewish people, settling the entirety of the land of Israel, and justice for Jonathan Pollard.

The Jerusalem Post reports on Tamar's special plea for Pollard:
Opposition leader Tzipi Livni made a pledge to 12-year-old orphan Tamar Fogel on Wednesday to work to bring about the release of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard.
Pollard's wife Esther visited the shiva house earlier and presented teddy bears from her husband to Tamar and her two surviving siblings. Tamar showed the bear to Livni and asked her to take action on behalf of Pollard, who has served more than 25 years of a life sentence.
Livni responded that she has worked to bring about Pollard's release and would continue to do so. She commended Tamar for her selflessness.
"Despite all your pain, you are thinking about the pain of others,” Livni told Tamar. “This is heartbreaking and amazing.”
Amazing indeed. May Hashem comfort and protect this extraordinary young woman and may her emunah and middot be an example for all of am yisrael.
