Dear Lovers of Israel,
After spending some time yesterday with the soldiers near the border of Gaza, this letter comes to you on this Holy Shabbat when at 6 a.m. this morning Tel Aviv awakened to the sounds of sirens as Hamas continued their missile and rocket launches toward civilian targets in Israel. We in Israel are thankful for the Iron Dome as it has once again intercepted and foiled Hamas’ attacks against Israeli citizens. Israel is fighting a brutal fundamental terror organization named Hamas. The world is making an effort to hide the simple TRUTH about the Muslim extremists who have sworn to kill both Jews and Christians “by the sword” and spread the Sharia law all around the world. Although this is a simple TRUTH to many of you, the world has yet to grasp the full understanding.
There is one question to be asked this morning, “What do you think the USA (or any other country for that matter) would do if thousands of missiles and rockets were shot toward Los Angeles, Washington DC and New York City while at the same time hundreds of terrorists were moving underground to enter Manhattan and other cities in a planned-calculated attack through tunnels forged for the sole purpose to shoot and kill innocent people?”
Both the USA and the UN declared a ceasefire yesterday at 8 a.m. Israeli time. Israel and Hamas both agreed to the cease-fire but 90 minutes into this humanitarian act a Hamas terrorist group attacked Israeli soldiers killing two of them and kidnapping an Israeli Officer name Hadar Goldin. It must be made clear that this solider is not a prisoner of war. Hamas is a terror organization who does not recognize the Geneva Conventions and does not adhere to the rights of Prisoners of War (POW). Hadar’s abduction is to be a ransom to push Israel into releasing convicted Hamas murderers who committed tens and hundreds of terror attacks against Israelis since Hamas’ establishment 27 years ago.
My dear Lovers of Israel, Hamas leaders are saying that they (the Palestinians) love DEATH while we (the Israelis) love LIFE. I think they are correct, however, I carry great compassion and sympathy for the people of Gaza who are forced to follow Hamas’ foolish belief that it can wipe Israel off the map so then (as Hamas says) “the Palestinians” can take over all of Israel. Again, this would mean killing 7 million Jews.
In the last 10 years while the people of Gaza have had little or no hope or future because the money that is donated to the people for development is taken and siphoned to Hamas by Hamas’ leadership. So much of it goes toward their construction and development of Hamas’ terror attack tunnels that lead from Gaza into Israel. The great planned “mega” terror attack toward Israel was to occur on Rosh Hashanah the Jewish New Year. Can you imagine 100 terrorists emerging out of each terror attack tunnel into the center of many Israeli Southern cities and villages simultaneously? Israeli authorities have declared that this kind of “mega” terror attack could have ended with 10 to 20 thousand Israelis murdered in one night. Can you understand the depth and magnitude of what I am saying to you? This is in fact how brutal Hamas is.
The USA is extending and making extreme efforts to make peace in the Middle East, however, the Obama Administration is always looking at the current dramatic developments through a very narrow perspective of interests and either cannot, will not, or does not see the “Big Picture” where Muslim extremists are concerned. The Muslim extremists are brutally attacking around the world in their efforts to kill and murder as many human beings as they are able to reach and will continue these attacks for as long as they are enabled by the world or until their goal is reached. It is the same story with Al Qaeda in Pakistan, Taliban in Afghanistan, Boko Haram in Nigeria, ISIS in Syria and Iraq, Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza. Today, the world still closes it eyes to all of this terror because of its brutality and because it has not reached Europe or the USA. You must know that these same attacks will happen sooner or later and quicker than we can ever imagine if the World does NOT stop them.
I do have some good news to share with you today, Israel will prevail and Israel can clearly hear the pure voices in the Arab world. Those who are cooperating with Israel for the first time in history, those being Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia as they too are becoming more active in this battle, this fight, for the world freedom from terror. We all know that God will never leave nor forsake His chosen people, for His purpose for Israel and His Word stands forever.
It is time for the world to wake-up and DO SOMETHING before it is too late for us all. We all know and can see the darkness; however, there WILL BE a Great Light that will shine forth from all this darkness in the world today. “Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory of the LORD rises to shine on you.” (Isaiah 60:1) Please join me in praying for Israel to prevail in this war against evil, but more importantly please pray for the world leaders to gain wisdom and insight to the enemy that threatens us all. “First of all, then, I counsel that petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for all human beings, including kings and all in positions of prominence; so that we may lead quiet and peaceful lives, being godly and upright in everything. This is what God, our Deliverer, regards as good; this is what meets his approval.” (1 Timothy 2:1-3)
God bless you and yours from Israel, keep praying for the Israeli soldiers fighting right now on the front lines against terror on behalf of the entire world so we all can be free of terror.
