Worth a thousand words … and then some!

Shalom all,

If you have been following the on-going missile and mortar attacks launched from Gaza into Israel by the Islamic Jihad, with the support and encouragement of Iran and its proxies in the region, you know that over 800 of such projectiles have been fired. Those responsible for starting the latest military engagement are targeting cities in the south and center of Israel, some landing not far from Jerusalem. This latest attack has resulted in numerous injuries, including loss of life here, and significant damage to property.

Most of the world was quick to condemn Israel. Our enemies continue to publish false reports of our responses to the terrorist activities, trying to win the war of public opinion. From the outset, Israel was participating in an effort to bring about a cease fire. But, it withdrew from such negotiations when it became clear that some of the missiles were sent towards Jerusalem. Enough is enough.

In the midst of sirens sounding in the city of Rehovot, a photo was taken that is one of the most popular in Israeli social media today. The photo (see attached) was taken by Li-Aviv Dadon, age 34. While she was traveling together with her husband, their infant child and their 4-year-old son, Yair, they suddenly heard a siren. The parents in a panic quickly started to take the baby out, but the other car door got stuck and Yair could not get out. The terrified mother finally succeeded in pulling the door open, and Yair ran out to hide, alone. The parents managed to hide with the baby. Then, out of the corner of her eye, the mother,saw a sight that caused her tears to flow. Two soldiers, who passed by and were also looking for shelter, saw young Yair and covered him with their bodies

That’s who we are, that’s how our military behaves.

Bless, be blessed and be a blessing.

Shabbat Shalom,
