I apologize for the blackout. I have (baruch Hashem) been recovering from the surgery.
I have been watching the unfolding of events in Israel with a furrowed brow.
It is laughable that there are those who would criticize Israel for it's measured action against her enemies. The "Palestinians" have been reaping what they have sown. They invited terrorists to rule them and now they must pay the price for their actions. Sovereign governments must behave responsibly and when they revert to barbarism they must be met with war. Kidnapping is the ultimate cowardly and barbaric act. The "Palestinian" government needs to be held accountable. As for the poor civilians, see HERE.
Jewish blood is not cheap and the Jewish nation will not sit idly by as one of her sons is stolen from his land.
That being said, Israel needs to take a step back and look at itself. It is time to protect its people and clean house: see HERE.
For those modertae Arab governments... Israel's "friends," see HERE
As for Israel's actions in Gaza, I say kol hakavod.
No negotiations. No discussion. No peace.
