While we here in Shiloh had a nice quiet, pleasant Shabbat, Israelis living in the south, near Gaza and not so close to Gaza were attacked by Gazan terrorists. At first when I turned on my computer and saw some posts from friends, I hadn't a clue to what they were referring to.
Shavua Tov! Southern gals, are you all ok? We even had a siren in Beit Shemesh!But then I found out that hundreds and hundreds of rockets had been fired at Israel by the Gazan terrorists. Some actually hit homes and people and did major damage.
At present Israel has a "lame duck" government, since there isn't a new coalition yet. But since there will probably be a similar one to what we had with a lot of the same political parties and ministers, there's no excuse for inaction. We're angry. The country has been through this too many times before.
Gaza was given "independence," and in exchange Israel got just more terror. Arik Sharon and his Disengagement Plan only increased the terror. The foreign backers of the Gazan terrorists have given them more and more weapons/rockets and worse.
In a few days we're celebrating Israeli Independence Day 71, and I pray that we act like a proud independent country and destroy our enemies, Gd willing.
