21-year old Emily Henochowicz was hit in the face with a tear gas projectile fired by an Israeli soldier during the demonstration at Qalandiya checkpoint today21-year old Emily Henochowicz was hit in the face with a tear gas projectile fired by an Israeli soldier during the demonstration at Qalandiya checkpoint today

Jerusalem - An American woman has lost her eye during a demonstration in Jerusalem against Israel’s naval raid on a Gaza aid flotilla, a hospital official said Tuesday.

Emily Henochowicz, 21, of Maryland, underwent surgery after suffering the injury, said hospital spokeswoman Yael Bossem-Levy.

Henochowicz was hit in the face by a tear gas canister shot by an Israeli border policeman, said witness Jonathan Pollak.

He said Palestinian youths were hurling rocks, but Henochowicz didn’t participate in any violence and was standing at a distance.

There was no immediate military comment.

In a Facebook message to The Associated Press, Sarah Henochowicz said the family would have no comment about her sister, calling it “a private matter.”

On her Facebook page, Emily Henochowicz’s current city is listed as Ramallah, West Bank, and her latest posting on Monday read: “Gaza on my Mind.” Her page says she is a student at Cooper Union, a college in New York, and Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design.

On another page, a posting said: “A message from Emily’s sister Sarah Henochowicz: This is to notify everyone concerned about my sister Emily. The surgery was successful and she is currently recuperating in Hadassah Hospital. Thank you for your kind words and support, my family and I greatly appreciate it. Her father is by her side and will bring her ... home as soon as she is able to travel.’”

She wasn't so innocent. On her Facebook page, Emily Henochowicz's current city is listed as Ramallah, West Bank, and her latest posting on Monday read: "Gaza on my Mind." Gaza was on her mind, not the murder of thousands of innocent Jewish children. Hope she does Teshuva and has a refuah sheleima and regains her eyesight and sees the light.

Innocent???

She's a flippin anti-Semite who happens to have a Jewish name.
People like her should be rounded up and used as sub-human shields for the chayalim. If they die in the process at least it will give some value to miserable lives.

We Jews even right wingers have soft hearts. We have rachmoness even on our enemies. She is a Jew and the picture awakens my rachmoness, so I would ask VIN to remove this picture pleas, I don't want to see it. I pray that this misguided soul does teshuva and has a refuah sheleima.

sadly & sickly ,the worst anti-semites are jews like these. who 'fight for fairness & equality & 'better life' & wtv for the arabs,' when they dont care abt their own brethren. what kind of 'jewish parents',religious or not raise such children r'l?!she's messed up!
Israel should have visa requirements for jews who want to 'travel or live' on the arab side. let them transfer her to an 'arab country ' and hospital.what do the arabs do to their own ppl?!Let them 'help' to improve the relations btwn arab countries for their so called 'brethern' . they couldnt give a hoot abt their own!
Yesh din v'yesh dayan - this happened , but Hashem caused it, unfortunatly we were the messengers ,better had it been the other side , like if she got caught up in a messed up bombing or the like , the arabs usual.you get what u deserve.If this doesn't wake her up that she's on the wrong side, nothing will!

The photo speaks quite loudly, despite all the politics of the moment -if that were possible. Of course this is a photo-op for the Palestinian woman to display an exxagerated nurturing moment -and for a supposed Jew nonetheless, but it does inspire as to what life could be -especially if there was no political motive in the scene -just legitimate individual and cultural differences between strangers addressed with respect. If only.

Even the most passionately pro-israeli commentators are asking why EY didn't anticipate the scenario where they would have to deal with agressive resistance by these misguided peace activists, why they thought a dozen or so commandos could control a ship with 600 passengers, why they didn't use one of several options for disabling these vessels in the open seas so they would have to be towed back to their homoe ports etc. I'm totally in support of the embargo but this will turn into a PR nightmare that will cost EY much more than they ever would have gained from stopping these ships.

Not sure who you are referring to but NO chazal that are recognized by yidden would have made such a statement. You are either a fool or an apikores who makes up his own "chazal" to support a morally bankrupt position. The embargo on Gaza was right and continues to be right..the way this particular attack was conducted was wrong.

While I do not gloat over the loss of this woman's eye, i have to note there are considerably less posts when rabid, left wing, self hating, Jews demonstrate, then when the ultra orthodox demonstrate. I can only assume that that is because those who post against the ultra orthodox find some measure of justification for the left wingers whose belief system is obviously close to their own hearts as opposed to when the ultra orthodox demonstrate for Torah principals that they cannot relate to.

So many comments. Yet not one even thinks to tread upon the reason of WHY this may have happened! Everything is straight from the one above. The girl and her eye were probably more of a voice for all of US to open OUR EYES! I would imagine that a lot of us do things with our eyes on a daily basis that are worst than her standing in the thick of a bunch of lunatics. Her neshama was already tainted. Ours are not. While I am not a prophet and G-d forbid am i trying to act like the judge of all, I do take away from this incident that it is very important that we should all be careful what we use our eyes for. If just one of us are a little more careful of what we use or eyes for than her loss was worth it.

When a tinnukos shneisbus does something wrong, it's not considered an aveirah. It's a pity most people here are full of sinas chinum. She doesn't know better and yet most people here have not the slightest bit of rachmonos. This doesn't mean that they should let all these anarchists in to add fuel to the fire. They should all be deported. If Israel wasn't so interested in always kissing up to the goyim, this latest fou pah wouldn't have happened. Gaza is part of Eretz Yisroel; they had no right to give it up. If they wouldn't have given it up, no one would be trying to bring them "humanitarian" goods. Secondly, if they had a bunch a ships breaking a naval blockade -you order them to follow you to port by loud speaker and radio; if they don't listen and they don't turn around, then you open fire until they comply or they are destroyed. Boarding vessels is what the Coast Guard does, not the Navy. This is what the US and every other democratic country would have done. The Israelis make themselves into a shmateh and then ask why does the world step on them. Now, because of their stupid blunder, they have made open hunting season on themselves and all Jews (due to association).

In the nazi camps the Kappos (who sometimes were worse than the Jews) had the alleged excuse of survival. This chloreya did it voluntarily against her own people and with whom?? People who are the leading anti-semites and the forefront of terrorism in the world. How?
Because their Koran instructs them "to kill infidels and Jews"! That is who this oysvorf is supporting who never demonstrated at the bus terrorism in Israel.
But we Jews also believe "binfoyl oyvecha loi tismach" That is the torah way. So we must wish her a refuah sheleimah despite what shomayim will pay her also. Everyone in the end gets what they deserve from Hashem!

That's the problem. Too many people think "an eye for an eye" means monetary comp. It does not. Hashem was quite specific in Torah as to what the punishments should be. His plan was deterrence. I'll bet anything that at least one of the injured ISF soldiers or Navy commandos has lost an eye even tho the injury details haven't been published.

There is no concept of "tinuk shenishba" on retzicha! When John Gotti jr goes to yener velt, he'll teina "What are you talking about? I just did what my father did, and his father before him!", but this doesn't work because he should have figured it out!
This poor young Jewish girl should NOT have taken the side of people who kill Jews! She should have known that even if Israel was wrong, we Jews stick together, and that Hamas is a terrorist organization who uses all donated supplies as a means to get more weapons. Even a box of oranges is a deadly weapon in the hands of a Gazan, because he'll sell it and give part of the money to support terrorism.
It may seem cold and harsh for me to say this, and in truth I do feel terrible for this poor girl, but....good! Hashem had rachmunos on her, she deserves to have lost both eyes!

There is no concept of "tinuk shenishba" on retzicha! When John Gotti jr goes to yener velt, he'll teina "What are you talking about? I just did what my father did, and his father before him!", but this doesn't work because he should have figured it out!
This poor young Jewish girl should NOT have taken the side of people who kill Jews! She should have known that even if Israel was wrong, we Jews stick together, and that Hamas is a terrorist organization who uses all donated supplies as a means to get more weapons. Even a box of oranges is a deadly weapon in the hands of a Gazan, because he'll sell it and give part of the money to support terrorism.
It may seem cold and harsh for me to say this, and in truth I do feel terrible for this poor girl, but....good! Hashem had rachmunos on her, she deserves to have lost both eyes!

If she was standing with terrorists or financially sending them money, you'd be right. You have no proof that she was, she probably was only supporting the local street arabs. NK constantly supports terrorists. So you have no reason to say halachically that she isn't a tinukes shneshbes. The only reason you have no rachmonos on this girl is because you have to be right politically, no matter what. And no, not all arabs have a din Rodef and not all are terrorists. Even though, I politically agree with most bloggers on this site, the only difference between me and you is - I put Torah principles before my nehgios of my politics. One of them is to be "Dan l'caf Zecus" this non-frum girl.

The name sounds jewish, I really doubt that she was just an innocent person standing at the side, from her comments on facebook it sounds like she was part of the demonstration and self hating jew, I'm not saying she was a violent or peacefull one...

HELLO!! Look at the second picture of her on the floor with that Palestinian flag pole on her feet...

Innocent?? Yes sure.

Neither Emily nor the NK's are tinoke shenishbos. People who give support, be it monetery, moral or other are traitors, they side with the enemy and in this case it's an enemy who wants to annihilate the Jews.
What do you mean with supporting the local Arabs on the street? You go to the local Arabs on the street and ask them to tell you what they would like to do with the Jews in Israel.
Why doesn't she support her brothers and sisters who are continuously fighting for survival?

And those who bless you, shall be blessed....And those who curse you shall be cursed.

When the chofetz chaim heard thunder, he hasked : Voos vilt de Tattelleh in himmel? (what does the Father in Heaven want?)

Ms Emily, when you get your eye poked out at an anti-semitic "activist" fest (despite staying at a 'safe distance'), you should ask yourself the same question

The Torah does NOT say that we have to be 'dan l'chaf zchus' every Jew! Only those who are muchzak in doing good things, like a talmid chacham or tzadik, but not someone who has no chazakah.

Again, you put your politics before the Torah halacha. So she dances with arabs who hate us and she hates us, THAT DOESN'T MAKE THEM INTO "RODFIM". Stop blogging for a few minutes and go learn some torah. She is a tinukus, because her philosophies that she has, was acquired by being brought up in the goyishe world. Start having some pity on people that are Jewish, even if they don't follow your political view. She doesn't know better, but you should!
