More than 50 rockets fired from Gaza into Israel

Over the past three days, Israel has been the target of rocket attacks from Gaza. Hamas has openly declared its involvement. “Nearly 50 rockets and mortar shells pounded southern Israel,” the Jerusalem Post reports. Four border police were injured in the Ashkelon Coast area.

Also from JPost: “Israel was expected to escalate its response to the attacks and Defense Minister Ehud Barak held security consultations late Tuesday night to review various options, following one of the worst days of violence in months.”

And:

“The more things deteriorate, the closer we come to a decision we don’t want to make,” Vice Premier Silvan Shalom said. “The prospect of a ground operation [in the Gaza Strip] shouldn’t frighten us. If this situation escalates, and I hope it won’t, then all options are open,” he told Israel Radio. “They know it. We know it. The international community knows it.”

    Israel please defend yourselves! God will never leave you or forsake you! Joshua 1:9 says wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart; wait I say, wait on the Lord! He will scatter your enemies before you! I love Israel and you are daily in my prayers.

    I support Israel and pray regularly for them. My twin brother and I both are supporters of Israel. Israel returning as a country was a fufillment of scripture. Take hope Israel because their is a prophesy that has yet to come true that says God himself will defend you in the last days when your country will be invaded by a foreign army. They will be defeated in the mountain passes which means they will die before they can hurt Israel. God will send a hail storm and it will utterly destroy this army. Take heart Israel God is still your guardian!

    Ezekiel 37:15 God has placed Israel in their own land. This has be fulfilled. The Israelis as yet have not completely fulfilled, “They will be my people and I will be their GOD”. It will happen.

    Jesus said these days would come and ANY true CHRISTIAN should be praying for Israel, standing with Israel. Israel is the center of the world, they are GODS’ people and we are only adopted into their family. Israel my Beloved.

    Israel not only has the right, but the affirmative obligation to protect her people! We Jews will not suffer yet another Holocaust, as the world and this administration stand idly by!!

    I know the scriptures say to dwell in peace if at all possible even with evil people if possible, and yeshua/Jesus said to turn your cheek and go the extra mile if possible. That was in the context of hoping reaching lost men, which is not the case here. The name or word this group use’s and they are full aware of the meaning in Hebrew. “Hamas”- means to do violence or intentional wickedness and harm basically in the Hebrew language. This is direct opposition to the charge and stewardship given to the children of Israel, persue and seek life and dwell in peace when it is possible.Therefore I believe it is time to activate the divine commandment(again there is not statute of limitations, unless self imposed) given via Moshe/Moses , to drive the heathen pagen worshippers who have defiled and polluted Canaan (aka) Land Of Israel now. All who have read and studied the history and phrophecy concerning Ysrael/Israel are cautious because there are a chain of events linked to it, both bad and good, ending in good after some long seasons of warfare. This being said, brave warriors do not fear death in a righteous war, but cowards and fools do when the moment arises, they know their mocking of the divine will soon be require their lives for bringing curses upon the children of Israel. May G-ds speed , will,protection, and provision be made to keep peace in Jerusalem and the inheritance given to Israel. Protect that of the divines, and the Divine will protect you. Shalom/Peace be in Israel

      I absolutely agree that Israel, a soverein nation has to do what needs to be done for protection of its citizens, lawful residents, and lawful visitors to this amazing nation! I pray for Israel, Israel’s people and military daily. I wish I could do more to help establish peace and stability amongst surrounding terrorists. Shalom…

Rabbi’s Commentary
Answering His Call, Faithfully and Joyfully

2014 has certainly been a year of struggles. But those challenges have been answered by God, and by His faithful followers. The Fellowship and our generous friends have been able to offer assistance to those who need it most, from the Holy Land to the former Soviet Union, and we look hopefully to the coming year as one of peace, prosperity, and repairing the world.
