War Diary 2
It's Not Tit For Tat

Although I have been receiving numerous emails from people praying for Israel and sending us blessings from accross the globe, I've also received a couple of letters 'unsympathetic' to Israel saying that we are like 'nazis' in the way we are fighting the Hizzbullah terrorists in Lebanon. Some of the emails were quite cutting from people who have never even met me. I wonder what goes on in their minds that they feel they can write me, a stranger, such attacking emails. After hurling blame on Israel, they ended their emails with, "You guys just have to learn to sit at the table and work things out, but you can't go bombing a whole country and innocent people. Shame, shame, shame on you!" they wrote. I wonder, did they bother to send this same letter to the Hizzbullah? I think not. How naive and coarse they can be. It's like they have been ignoring the history of the region, where the Jews have constantly stretched our hands out for peace, only to have it sliced off in its attempts. What was Oslo but not a drastic (foolish and deadly as well) attempt to not only sit down at the table with terrorists, but also gave them land, a government, and weapons and training to build a police force (which became a terror army), when all they did was to agree to negotiate and not use violence any more, to further their goals. Israel made all the sacrifices, the terrorists, fed on it and demanded more, and spilled more blood.

Today the naive and sleepy ones are ranting that Israel is the one who does not make attempts at peace, and that it is us destroying a whole country (Lebanon). Never mind the decades of terror (hear the 4 part interview with Brigitte, a Lebanese Arab woman) and threats on the Lebanese people and Lebanese government from the fanatical Moslem terrorists.

The terrorists use the cowardly tactic of using civilians as shields. They store their weapons to kill and then shoot from places like their own mosques at Israel knowing that we respect places of worship and won't shoot back. A few U.N. troops were killed as well this way, with the Hizzbullah firing rockets from UN positions and then leaving the people in the area as the recipients of return fire. Well, this piece came my way and I thought I would post it for you, to show the difference between Israel and these Moslem terrorists in general:

Regarding the claims that Israel is smashing Lebanon indiscriminately, take a look at this map below showing the strategically targeted places that Israel has gone after to destroy the terrorist infrastructure. While the terrorist AIM for our towns and villages to kill as many civilians as possible, Israel has been careful to pin point only what is needed in order to destroy terror bases. Please feel free to pass this piece of information along. I don't know who to give credit to with this map, but it has brought some perspective and clarity to the real picture.

The picture above is a map of Beirut. The blacked-out areas are those that have been bombed by Israel. As you can see, Israel's pin-point bombing is limited and highly targeted and does not represent 'mass destruction' as it is being described in the UN and world press.

At least 1,400 Katyushas have slammed into Israel's northern towns and cities in the last 2 1/2 weeks. Residential buildings, homes, farms (numerous cattle have been blown up and splattered in their grazing feilds) and the Hizzbullah promises more. This time, with more powerful missiles , and to cities deeper into Israel.

And yet, as much destruction as we have recieved, our death toll is far below what it should be. The G- of Israel watches over His people.

**** This just in froma guest on my show collecting for those in the bomb shelters in Northern Israel:

    Tamar -

    Why would we even think that these terrorists would be part of any Geneva convention banning the use the of civilians as shields? They are not a "nation", not part of any civilization that cared about any "conventions" signed in Switzerland.

    Their source is the desert, Ishamel's preferred home, where there are no laws. They are above any "law", international or otherwise, other than what they want to do, and if they succeed in their evil plan then in their perverted religion's view it is G-d's will.

    I think the proper approach is to treat them as they prefer, turn their county back into the desert the love. What is this insanity of warning them before missile strikes? So they have a chance to escape? Come on, treat this threat seriously, kill as many as possible before they kill us.

    Next, persecute those Pacifist leaders who thought it was possible to make peace with them and withdrew from Lebanon, thereby allowing Hizballa to build up their arms without any impediments from the Israeli side. THESE leaders are guilty of the war crimes, for having endangered the lives of the Israeli citizens.

    Third, realize that Ishamel's strength comes from Israeli's weakness, not only military weakness, but spiritual weakness. Ishmael claims his rights to Eretz Yisrael because he is Avrohom's first born son, and when the descendants of Yitzchak want to be merely an Am Chofshi B'Artzeinu, then Ishamael claims his rights, because he performed Bris Mila. Only when the dreams of Peace now turn into nightmares, as they are now, will it be possible to ever have a real peace.

    Thanks for reading. hope to be there soon

    Is there a way to make a cash contribution to help using PayPal?

    I have the same question as Kaleb. How can we get this money to you quickly without the loss of funds using a bank transfer. Is there a Jewish bank in Israel I can send a quick check to that will transfer the money for free?

    I am horrified by the reality that Hizbullah has managed to squirrel away so many rockets, how callously they waste the lives of their children and countrymen, and how craftily and zealously they pursue their goals. I do not know how else Israel can respond to such an enemy other than brute and overwhelming force. I watched the bodies of children being pulled from the rubble of a Lebanese house and it sickened me. But my deepest pain was for the decent Israeli people who are left with no other option but to harden their hearts and kill to survive. If I were there, I would kill too - but I know I would never be the same and I would hate Hizbullah for that most of all.

    There will always be those who will attack everything good while defending all things evil. The scriptures warned us that this would be the way of this world. And there will always be those that will be more than willing to express their opinions without ever bothering to know the true facts of a thing. This war is no different, there is no excuse for ignorance in this day of abundant information at our disposal, yet ignorance abounds all the more. Your post was right on the mark, this war is NOT "Tit for Tat", it's GOOD fighting EVIL, and lets pray that this time, THE GOOD GUYS WIN !!!!

    Just as posters above have commented, this war is supernatural and everyone who looks at it solely from the natural will never understand or even have a hope of understanding.

    Israel belongs to God. The Jews belong to God. Anyone that comes against the Jews or Israel comes against God. It is as simple as that.

    Yes, Jews suffer as a result of their sins as do we all, but in the end, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is the only God and it is better to be for him than against him.

    Did you notice that that map of Beirut looks like the American Bald Eagle.
