Remembering the Holocaust, Gaza Style

Watch this video.

It shows a Holocaust memorial service in the south of Israel being interrupted by the tzeva adom – the “red alert” alarm letting civilians know to seek shelter. It is heartbreaking and appalling.

What should appall you isn’t that Gaza terrorists would fire a rocket at Israel on Holocaust Memorial Day. If that news surprises you, you still fundamentally misunderstand Israel’s enemies.

Watch the video closely. The rocket is first heard at the 17 second mark – even before the tzeva adom is heard – and before the 19 second mark rolls around, a little boy in the lower left hand corner of the screen has already bolted out of his seat for safety. Why should that appall you? Because that little one has lived his entire life under rocket attack from the terrorists in Gaza. He has never known a day without that threat. He has known only a few days in which he didn’t hear the tzeva adom. And he is conditioned by a lifetime of fear to run for safety when he hears that all-too-familiar sound.

The Zionist dream of Theodor Herzl and others was that Jews could live in their own land and under their own protection. The dream was to live free of fear. So long as the little boy in that video lives life as he does – as he has for years – the dream is deferred.

Holocaust Memorial Day doesn’t make it any more sad. It’s already sad. It just brings it into greater relief.

    All of these comments are so very true. I love Israel and have fallen in love with this little
    land. Barack Obama hates Israel and America, Sadly, so few see him for what he really is. God help us.

    Is there anyone, anyone in our government or the rest of the despisers of Israel, that doesn’t know what would happen if rockets started coming across our Southern border or our Northern border repeatedly? Individual states could and would take action to stop it permanently if our lying, drivel speaking Feds would not! But only God could and would protect Israel if they chose to put a stop to it. Wish it could fit into biblical prophecy and they would.

    If we are true Christians, a part of the church that belongs to our lord and savior JESUS CHRIST we will not shot rockets or hate those how attack us. We have to humble ourselves, hit our knees.

    We better all be concerned about Israel and any nation or people who go against them. They will be cut to pieces. GOD does Not lie. He is Truth and the Jew haters and atheist will find out. God bless

      Amen. I pray for peace in Israel but I fear it will be unknown until God intervenes and I hope that I am alive to see it and sing His praises.

    We must stop mistaking the people who perpetrate attacks on Israel for people who know God. They do not and are therefore blind and kept so by their leadership. It is wise to regard them as a malignant environment for Israel. This malignancy will play itself out on God’s schedule; it is our job to keep Israel strong, viable and joyful despite these hardships. In time evil will be defeated by Christ Jesus, Lord of Lords. In the meantime each Christian needs to develop an Israel budget and move $$ forward to show love and support for God’s chosen. CUFI, keep asking for $$. blessings.

    Ariel Sharon made a terrible decision to withdraw Israel from Gaza although Israel had voted not to do so. I have read that he did so in order to distract attention from legal problems of his son Omri

    Don’t try to change the goals and thoughts of the terrorists. Try to draw their potential supporters and recruits closer by benign actions. They are the sea in which terrorists swim, to be dried up.

    This is a sad time for the Jewish State to constantly be in fear. YHWH said in the Torah,”I will bless those that bless you and I will curse those that curse you.” I have and will always bless you.

    An atheist replied to an article about Syrian clerics urging Jihadi’s to rape Christian women last week compared it to the Crusades 800 years ago. Their sense of proportion equals their sense of time

      This is the moral relativism of the left. See how Obama relates the firing of rockets at civilians in Israel to Israel building houses in their own territory. An appalling lack of moral leadership.

    Why do those who say they want peace and their religion means peace not show it by being peaceful?

      I am not from the Bronx, but I am Boston Irish. Michael’s comments make sense. Appeasement will never work and the U.N. is a disgrace to all peace loving folk everywhere.

        Bertie, I am not going to say you are welcome, I only can say, that what I have said is not true, but I can not run away from reality and the facts, because it is true. Glad we are together!
