Neither Rain, Nor Snow, Nor Sleet, Nor Hail Stop the Arab Terrorists

Peace is not around the corner.

A rocket was launched at Ashkelon from Gaza at 8:19 pm. It appears that the rocket fell short and landed within the Gaza strip. Read more.

I’ve lost about half a week to rain, snow, sleet and the accompanying electricity outage in my hometown of Shiloh.  I’ve been offline for three days because of that.  I missed news, telephone calls, emails etc.  Our television stopped broadcasting before the electricity went.  I slept a lot and now understand how some animals hibernate in the winter.  The cold and dark affected me so badly that I wasn’t even hungry the entire “Fast of the the Tenth of Tevet,” last Friday.

I didn’t fully wake up until today when the sun came out, which made the snow sparkle.  On Shabbat the clouds made the snow look grey and depressing.  I didn’t even leave my house for three solid days because of the weather.  On Thursday the rain kept me in, and I cooked and even baked challah.  I didn’t want pressure on me when fasting.  Thank God I did, because I couldn’t have done that cooking without electricity.

Totally disconnected to news and politics, insulated from the real world by that glorious white snow, I was shocked back into reality with the news that the Arab Gazan terrorists attempted to attack Ashkelon.

Peace is not around the corner, nor doable in the near future.

And now there’s worse news.  An Israeli soldier may have been killed by a Lebanese sniper.

This report is still being updated. Much of the information is from foreign sources, and not yet confirmed by the IDF. An IDF soldier was reportedly killed by sniper fire from Lebanon a short time ago, according to reports in Al Arabiya, The Lebanon Daily Star and other Lebanese news sites. The soldier was reportedly shot near Rosh Hanikra, along the Northern border. In Lebanon they are claiming that the shooting was done by the Lebanese Army, or by someone wearing a Lebanon Army uniform. The IDF spokesperson confirms there was a shooting incident from Lebanon, a complaint was sent to the UN, and that Israel reserves the right to respond to it. According to Nahariyah Hospital director Dr. Masaad Barhom, an IDF soldier was brought unconscious to the hospital at around 8 PM, after his car had flipped. He had holes in his upper body that appear to be from gunfire or possibly shrapnel. The doctors were unable to save his life. Read more.

Sometimes collective action against the heinous acts of the majority is not enough. The world should not only support the blockade of Gaza; it must enforce the dismantling of Hamas.
