“There is a lot of pain in this room, but there is also a lot of power,” said Chantal Belzberg, director of the NGO OneFamily, to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a private meeting at the Knesset, amid several victims of terrorism.
“They represent a cross-section of Israeli society...however, this group has one thing in common - one thing that bonds them together, now and forever,” she said.
That commonality, Belzberg told Netanyahu, is that each of them has a loved one who was brutally murdered by Arab terrorists, and not enough has been done to stop the ongoing wave of violence.
OneFamily, an apolitical NGO that utilizes a group dynamic to champion the legal rights in addition to emotional and financial needs of thousands of terrorism victims and their families, has served as a preeminent voice for survivors since 2001.
On Thursday morning, Belzberg and the survivors were joined by her husband, Marc Belzberg, OneFamily’s chairman, who together hand delivered Netanyahu a confidential six-point plan to better fight Israel’s war against terrorism.
