Rocket lands near school

Three more rockets landed in southern Israel today, one of them near a school in Netivot where students were in class. Parents were called and rushed to bring their children home to safety, and it was announced that schools would be closed on Friday.

Hamas has blamed Islamic Jihad for violating the shaky truce that has led to a sharp decline in rocket fire. Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon blamed Iran, which arms and trains the terror groups operating from Gaza, for the recent round of violence, and stated that the situation in southern Israel is “unacceptable.”

In Israel, people seem to view this latest round of violence as a prelude to war with Iran. One Israeli I spoke with said, “There is no doubt in my mind that Iran is calling the shots in Gaza and wants to drag Israel into a ground offensive in the Strip. An Israeli offensive in Gaza would deflect the world’s attention away from Iran’s weapons program, as everyone from the U.N., E.U., U.S., and the Arab League would be focused on Israel. This would buy Tehran more time to build nuclear bombs.”

It’s well known that Iran is a chief funder of global terrorism. In the event that Israel is forced to launch an offensive in Gaza, let’s hope and pray the world keeps this in mind, and remembers who the good guys and bad guys are in the region.

    My son is a US Special Forces soldier and I would be more than happy to see him stand next to IDF soldiers in bringing down the regime in Iran and destroy their nuclear capabilities. God Bless Israel!

    All of the Free World must stand by Israel. We must pray every day for their safety. If I had it in my power I would wipe out Iran & every Islamic hater of freedom that breathes. They are evil to the bone and will try to bring down every country whose people are not Muslim.

    America is standing with Israel but the battle is God’s. God is watching (2 Chronicles 16:9), nobody can hinder His plan. When it is His time you all will see. Wait on Him. Lamentation 3:25,26

    America should stand with Israel. If we do not, God will not bless America. The Bible teaches we are to stand for them for they are His chosen people.

State of Israel"

Rabbi's Commentary
A Fragile Peace

As we continue to pray for a lasting peace, one of our most critical tasks is to help Israel recover – to rebuild, to restore shattered lives, to comfort those who have lost loved ones or livelihoods. And none of this is possible without you who continue to stand by the Jewish people.
