The State of Israel is suffering from a very different type of war, danger and enemy. It's something European countries may relate to if they would open their eyes and minds.
The Gazan Hamas Arab terrorists have been bombarding many of Israel's major cities, Beersheva, Ashkelon and even Tel Aviv in order to destroy the State of Israel. That is the simple truth. A very large portion of Israel's population and agricultural land is in that vulnerable
That's a very serious danger to ordinary Israelis and the existance of the State of Israel. That's why Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is not only backed for his ground offensive against Gaza, but even parents of soldiers are encouraging the government to do everything to wipe out our enemies until they surrender.
My friends in the south not only hear and feel both sides of the battles, but they spend a lot of time in their shelters.
Good morning..what a night! Very, very noisy night. Jets screeching over head, sometimes it felt like it was scraping our roof, booming from Aza [good noise] we are getting those terrorist...Many sirens in the South [bad noise] the silent station Radio Darom, just kept on going on and on. Have a safe day.Am Israel Chai forever!
Agreed that we have the military capability; however motivation to fight the war is another issue entirely. The current military operational aim is two-fold: 1) destroy tunnels used for terrorism and 2)significantly reduce infrastructure in Gaza.
Its 02:07,I just finished a cup of coffee with my mother's yummy cookies. The bombing from Aza is so strong my house is shaking like a leaf. Several times the front door rattled so hard,I honestly thought someone was trying to get in. Between the heavy tank fire, the non stop air traffic and the massive bombing from the IAF, its really impossible to sleep. But......all that said, IDF..... go get them!We want the terror tunnels and the rocket infrastructure to be totally destroyed.
Not being able to sleep is the least of our problems. The tunnels being discovered are horrifying!
Just imagine G-D forbid what can happen.... We the proud residents of the south can do without sleep, we need long term security.
"Be strong and brave our dear soldiers!"
