Guest blogger Stuart Wachs, president and CEO of the Jewish Community Association of Greater Phoenix, is currently in Israel on a solidarity mission with the Jewish Federations of North America. 

Just leaving Mount Herzl Military Cemetery where 63 brave young men have been buried in just the last month. We heard from a wife and brother of a 20-year-old soldier who was just buried two weeks ago. I looked out at the cemetery filled with young men and women who where full of love who all died because of evil and hatred toward them.

We can not sit by idly  and have more and more young soldiers killed. We must as civilized people and countries fight against the evil of Islamic Jihadist killing thousands of people around the world. We must eliminate this evil and we must stand by Israel.
I can not imagine having to bury one of my children at this young age.
