Will Erdogan Get Tough?

Writing in Yediot Achronot, Ron Ben-Yishai says that the Turkish response to Syrian shelling that killed five Turkish civilians may be just the beginning.

Assad’s regime may still pay dearly for the errant mortar fire because the Turks are concerned most about the flow of refugees from Syria. Syrians are fleeing Aleppo and Idlib and crossing into Turkey in droves. The number of Syrians living in refugee camps in Turkey is nearing 100,000. While the Turks are being assisted by international aid organizations, they are shouldering most of the economic burden. Moreover, some unwanted elements are finding refuge in these refugee camps and in rebel bases.

    Erdogan is known for his volatile temper and may well attack into Syria. The whole scene is unpredictable.

    I am very happy to see Turkey assisting the victums from Syria and it is a blessing that they have somewhere to go! I wish America would stop giving terrorist money and give to support something like this. HOLY GOD please help them.

    unfortunately, there is a price to pay from war and civil disorder. Usually, many an innocent civillians take the brunt of it as seen in this Syria crisis. Wrong people in control there.

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.
