I'm sick and tired of hearing about how
- the United Nations only cares about the Arabs and ignores when Israel is attacked, "Hypocrisy exposed: U.N. ignored Israel's repeated pleas to act against Hamas rockets, then rushed to stop Israel's self-defense"
- Obama/Clinton exerted pressure on Bibi, "The understandings are seen as an achievement for Hamas, which, since the cease-fire negotiations began, has demanded an Israeli obligation not to enter Gazan territory, including the 500-meter-wide buffer zone on the Palestinian side of the border. Another perceived accomplishment for Hamas is that the understandings do not force upon it the responsibility for enforcing the cease-fire on the other organizations in the Gaza Strip."
"I entitled this posting "grim," because this is very much the mood of the nation here. From the right and from the left there is criticism of the ceasefire agreement concluded yesterday. Somewhere in this country there must be someone who thinks this was a good move, but I have yet to encounter that person. Unless there is a huge shift in the situation, it seems that Netanyahu and his Likud party may suffer in the coming election for what has happened."
How many times can we make the same mistake? Déjà vu for sure. I can just repost what I'd written before about leaving the terrorists to rearm with the extra danger of all of the information it has gathered about its fire power.

But my real message is that our salvation, our security does not rest in the United Nations, United States or even the equipment in the hands of the IDF. The greatest military leader we, the Jewish People, have ever had was King David. And King David knew that our victories were/are only due to the Help of G-d.
2 Samuel Chapter 22 שְׁמוּאֵל בWar isn't simple Arithmetic. It doesn't matter what our physical weapons are to determine final victory. It only matters what our spiritual strength is. That is what King David understood from the youngest age, when he was just the family shepherd, guarding and protecting the flocks.
I have no doubt that our Moshiach ben David is somewhere here preparing to save us. And just like the Biblical David, he is difficult to recognize. He (or is it she?) is difficult to recognize. David did not look like a casting director's idea of a king.
1 Samuel Chapter 16 שְׁמוּאֵל אBut there was something in his eyes, a strength, leadership, charisma and faith. And G-d willing, we'll have the wisdom to quickly recognize the David of our time.
In the meantime, the problem is in us.
