My Heart Aches

The Israeli ground forces have begun to go into the Gaza strip. My heart aches for each Israeli soldier that will lose his life or become injured from this action. My prayers are with all of them. 

I can't explain how sad and angry I'm at this moment. The Gaza strip is one big booby trap that was prepared by the Hamas for an eventual Israeli incursion. Hamas has had 3 years to smuggle weapons, rockets, build underground bunkers and tunnels and booby trap all over the place.

This is one the saddest things ever, because if we hadn't left the Gaza strip 3 years ago the South of Israel wouldn't be under fire like it is today, the Gaza strip wouldn't be booby trapped to the gazoo and Israeli soldiers wouldn't have to lose their lives going back to a place where we once had control over only 3 years ago!

My prayers are with all of the Israeli soldiers at this moment and my hope that those responsible for bringing us to this brink of madness will  be held accountable.

Unfortunately, all those soldiers will be losing their lives while many of us scream out THIS COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED BECAUSE WE TOLD  YOU THIS WOULD HAPPEN but you wouldn't listen.

Pray, pray and pray some more and then some more for the soldiers.

Then pray that we be blessed with better leaders who will lead the Jewish people and the Land of Israel to a future of true peace and not a false one based on giving in to sworn enemies who want to destory us. We all want peace, some of us have just realized that a piece of paper with worthless signatures of murderers, with backing of international leaders who have many other concerns besides Israel, does not bring peace, yet actually furthers us from it.

By the way, I also hurt and sympathize for those Arabs in Gaza who have been hurt or killed due to the suicidal negligence of their leaders who use their civilian populations as human shields! They also would all be in much better shape if we were still in Gaza, but nobody talks about that...

As Gold Meir once said "We will have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us".
