I guess there are "lights" and there are "lights." It seems that our light is blinding others from our pain and dangers.
Israel is playing a very dangerous game with the terrorists who are aiming to destroy us. If we don't do what we must do to survive, we shouldn't expect any other country to do it for us.
IAF hits 3 targets in Gaza in response to rocket fire
LAST UPDATED: 11/12/2012 05:32The Israeli Air Force struck three targets in the Gaza Strip early Monday morning following a 24-hour period in which Palestinian terrorists fired over 100 rockets into southern Israel, injuring three people...
Sorry, but that's not "proportionate response." Three 3 versus one hundred 100 is worse than pathetic. It's dangerous. It gives Israel a failing grade for sure. 3% or 3/100. What type of defense are we running here?
Israelis in the "affected areas," crazy euphemism for the millions under attack, are told to be 15 fifteen seconds from shelter.
"There were many empty tables at the wedding. Lots of people came for the chuppah and left.Just because nobody died or is physically injured doesn't mean that the missiles/weapons weren't aimed to kill us. It just means that G-d in His great mercy has been protecting us!
I really feel bad for them.
During the chuppah there was a siren that we didn't hear. - called my mother sms'd to tell me.
Another injury of the missiles..."
"This is the house in Netivot that was just attacked...
Across the street my niece lives....
I am shaking like a leaf.
Her daughters bed was full of glass. Baruch Hashem she is alive, NOT WELL!!!
(Physically they are great..)"
"Morning has arrived. Checking updates on the newspapers and Facebook sites.I want to have a shower, but am certain that as soon as I am under the water there will be a Red Alert. I am supposed to go to Tel Aviv to work but concerned about the drive which has me hugging the Gaza Strip (it takes me about an hour to drive out of missile range, and when you are driving outside the cities you don't even hear alerts or sirens. I want to go to do my medical clowning after my meetings, but that would mean driving back home after dark- an even scarier prospect in this war-torn situation . I am truly held prisoner by my fears through living in this area . And I am sure I am not alone. Life in the shadows of the rockets. Life on the Gaza border. Just thought you should know."
"We had a mortar here not long ago. No warning, of course. Short range missiles have no early warning system. Just the landing. I was outside with my dogs (but right near the house). Have decided to sleep in my safe room. Going through the routine of "abandoning " my bedroom and sleeping in safe room: Bring in dogs' bed, bring in laptop, bring in my pillow.
When you do not live it, you cannot understand what it feels like to go to sleep feeling threatened and insecure. My heart goes out to those hundreds of families who do not have the "luxury" of someplace safe, for their children and themselves, to sleep tonight.
Life on the border with Gaza. Things people may not know - but should."
"RED is a colour, not a siren. Please wear red today, in solidarity with the residents of the south, who hear the announcement Tzeva Adom, Tzeva Adom - Colour Red, Colour Red, and have to dash to a shelter within 15 seconds because of incoming missiles from Gaza terrorists. We in Beersheva have a different reality, rising and falling sirens, really scary, and most do not have safe rooms to run to. We demand that our government institute ZERO TOLERANCE for rocket fire from Gaza."
To answer my own question in the title of this post, it seems that as long as the Israeli Government keeps on under-reacting, the rest of the world will ignore the attacks against us even more.
