Israeli Southerners to the Government: “Put Your Money/Children Where Your Mouth Is!”‏

eshkol[1]

There’s one very consistent message I’ve been hearing on Israeli television. Israelis who reside in the parts of Israel, the south, the Eshkol Region, any place within range of the daily barrages of terror missiles being launched by the Gazan Arab terrorists, want the top government officials, the ministers, including Bibi himself to move to their neck of the woods.

There have been lots of announcements by the government to those who are on “vacations” far from home to “return home. All is well.” They don’t even have to call the 20-30% of their neighbors who haven’t left to find out how safe it is. There are “pings” during news reports on tv with information of where there were alerts to quickly scramble to a “safe room.”

Imagine that you are just trying to live your life. However, terrorists constantly fire rockets at your hometown. Now imagine that you are in your kitchen cooking dinner. When the siren goes off, you only have 15 seconds to get to the shelter. Even if the shelter is in the basement and you are on the second — or third or fourth — floor, you still have only 15 seconds. 15 seconds that separate life from death. This is the reality that men and women living in Israel (and not only in the south) face every day, sometimes ten times a day.

I agree with them. I’m sure that the situation would look a lot different to the government ministers who give the IDF their orders if their wives, children, parents and more were being subjected to intolerable terrorism that hundreds of thousands of Israelis have been facing. And yes, they should live in ordinary homes with inconvenient if any attached safe-room/shelter.
