Meet Fishel Benkhald. My wife and I met him over Twitter late last year, and, because I am also a Jew, I was very interested in his story. We have become “friends” through social media.

Fishel lives in Karachi, Pakistan, and is considered to be the last Jewish citizen in Pakistan, a country of 187 million people. He has made it his mission to be a voice for Pakistani minorities. …

As you might imagine, being the last Jew in a Muslim country like Pakistan has caused him a lot of grief and trouble, and exposed him to an increasing amount of danger. As a matter of safety, Fishel uses the voice recorder on his phone to capture audio he thinks he might need later. On March 4, 2015, he recorded himself getting beaten by 2-4 men.
