End to Gaza Violence Still Distant

Yoav Limor, writing in Israel Hayom, has another great piece today.

Some IDF officials believe that Hamas has no real interest in ending the conflict quickly, even with the call-up announcement and the threat of an IDF ground operation. Hamas leaders understand that the domestic and international legitimacy to act that Israel is currently enjoying will erode over time, especially if casualty numbers on both sides rise. In this pessimistic scenario, Hamas will continue to launch around 200 rockets daily, which would exhaust Israel and drag the IDF into a long and expensive ground operation.

    Beno is right. Concerning the peace contract with Palestinians by giving up the Gaza Strip, well they bridged their contract, by supporting Hamas. Kick them all out. God bless Israel.

    It is time to clean the area, the terror will continue until harsh measures are taken. No one should live with the constant threat of death and destruction. We need to pray and support Israel.

    Prayer does change things. I was happy to hear that the senators passed a resolution approving the action that Isreal took to stand up against the terrorists. I believe God will honor his promise he made to Abraham. The Jewish people we must stand behind them as a country if we are to be blessed. Pray that the president will have a change of heart conserning Isreal.

    There will NEVER be peace in the Middle East. First of all, the Muslims are not seeking peace. They want world domination and Shiria Law. That is their goal and nothing will stand in their way. Only God our Creator will defend Israel, His chosen people, and keep them from being destroyed.

    Yes, I believe that Hamas’ intention is to have a long drawn out battle to exhaust the IDF. BUT Israel must understand that whether she uses restraint in her defence or goes all out and destroy’s Hamas either way the world will condemn Israel. You do or you don’t, they will condemn you anyhow. So I say blast Hamas out of their rat holes and bring them to an end.Israel has to show the terrorist world that there is no mercy for them. God is with you Israel. God bless you and keep you safe. May all those who desire harm for you fall into their own traps. May the Lord bless you and keep you and place His protective hedge around you and bring you peace. LONG LIVE ISRAEL!

    Sorry folks…..Prayer doesn’t help when Israel is faced with determined arab desire to destroy
    Israel and all the Jews.It’s too bad the Americans and the UN don’t understand the arab mindset.”Hudna” in arabic means rearm and build up your forces whereas the rest of the world mistakenly believe it really means ceasefire and truce. When will we ever wake up…after anoth Holacaust…???

      God has commanded us to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem” in Psalm 122:6. In Isaiah 31:4-5 we read “As the lions roar, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem. Defending, He will deliver it. Passing over, He will preserve it.” The Israelites are God’s people and He will deliver them when it looks impossible.

    It’s not all Arabs but the extremists who are causing a lot of the trouble. Lots of Arabs are now becoming Christians and will stand with Israel. I pray for Israel.

    Prayer would change a lot. Israel has the right to defend against any aggressor.

Rabbi's Commentary
God Is Present This Holy Season

Even as efforts for peace seem to be at an impasse all around the world, the Passover story can give us hope and affirmation that God is always present in our lives, and even when situations seem impossible, He is working in ways we cannot imagine.
