Israel has granted residency to a Palestinian man who saved the children of a rabbi killed in a July 1, 2016 West Bank terror attack. Miki Mark was murdered in the shooting, which also wounded his wife and two teenage children. The Palestinian man and his wife helped the surviving family members escape their overturned car and administered first aid until medics arrived at the scene. Following their heroic act, the man – who authorities have not identified – received a temporary visa to live and work in Israel; this, after Palestinians in his hometown bombarded him with death threats. Nevertheless, Israel did not renew his permit two years later, leaving the man in limbo. Unable to work, he subsequently became homeless. After Israel’s Channel 12 recently documented his ordeal, many Israelis, including leaders of West Bank Jewish communities, launched a campaign that ultimately induced Jerusalem to award residency to the Palestinian, his wife and son.
