This is too give you guys a first person idea of what its like living under constant barrage from rockets coming from Gaza..
If this were happening in America, i wouldnt doubt for a second that Americans would be demanding a swift and effective response. Anything to hault
these barbaric attacks. But for some reason when its Israel, these victims are transformed into oppressors. Imagine the anger and outrage! How do you
deal with it? You want to live in peace, but these monsters to the south, these "palestinians" living in Gaza, enable these terrorists to do what they
do with impunity.
Today, a woman was killed and 50 others were injured in a Jerusalem Terrorist attack. 22 of the 50 have life altering injuries. Some will never look
the same again, or walk. 2 pregnant women were injured in the attack, causing miscarriages.
This was written a yesterday.
For the first time since the Gaza War two years ago, Ashdod - my beloved city - came under missile attack again. Just minutes ago, the Red Alert siren
wailed, and about 35 seconds later, the warhead fell about three kilometers to the south of my home, near the Nitzanim Beach on the south side of
town, one of my favorite places for personal prayer. Just last night, my son Danny and I were taking one of our favorite father-and-son walk&talks on
that very same stretch of beach. While we were walking, we heard a Grad missile explode on the outskirts of Ashkelon to the south of us. Another Grad
missile hit Ashkelon about three hours ago. Thank G-d no one was hurt in either attack.
Civil Defense has warned the residents of Southern Israel to stay close to home, in the proximity of a bomb shelter.
As yet, it's too early to interpret what Hamas's intentions are. We do know one thing - phenomenal amounts of weapons have been pouring into Gaza ever
since the unrest in Egypt started.
Complacency is irresponsibility; we have to regard the missiles from Gaza as wake-up calls from Hashem. Accordingly, we must undergo serious self
evaluation and correct what needs correcting. With Hashem's help and with emuna, we'll weather all these challenges until Moshiach comes, very soon,
I think it is VERY sick to just expect Israel not to do something about this. The PLO, the Palestinian Authority, headed by Abu Mazen (aka mahmoud
Abbas) refuses to denounce Hamas. If this is the case, how can the west continue labeling the PLO and Fatah moderate? They refuse to step in and stop
the violence. Their own constitution doesnt recognize the right of Israel to exist, so why would they denounce Hamas? Hamas is playing the bad guy,
and they the good guy. They wont sell out their other half.
I really dont care what any of you think. If i were the Israeli PM, i would do what anyone in America would expect Obama to do if rockets were coming
in from Tijuana. Go into Tijuana, and hunt down every single terrorist. If it happens again. Punish the Tijuanans! Let them know that if they wont
punish the terrorists theyre providing safe haven for, THEY will be punished. This is the ONLY friggen sensible political recourse. The current peace
process is political code for a slow, painful war of attrition.
I wouldnt expect the cretans here to understand what this means
