Vardina now has mixed feelings about the State of Israel. “Of course, I am happy we have the State of Israel, and it is clear to me that the Jewish Nation is where it should be, in a place that is good for it. On a personal level, I feel that the government is not properly addressing the issues at hand. I voted for this government, a right wing government. The knowledge that they are conducting themselves in this fashion is very difficult for me, especially when I know there are other possible solutions.”

Vardina does not know what the future holds for her. She knows that suggested solutions were decided in haste. There is some sort of vague solution to relocate them, but she is not sure if it’s a good solution. When she told her five-year-old son that they will have to move he burst into tears, not wanting to leave his home and friends.

“I haven’t done anything wrong; on the other hand, I don’t feel wretched. I am a happy person, and don’t want to categorize myself as someone miserable. I feel that in general, what is going to happen is wrong. On one hand, the alleged owner will not be able to use the land – the Ministry of Defense has already decided on that. So the houses will be destroyed for no purpose whatsoever. Anyhow, where has he been for the past twelve years since the houses have been built? I am having a very hard time accepting all this, and I don’t know how it’s all going to end. I am going through a process of mourning now, but it’s important for me to conserve my strength for the future. I will survive all of this”.

“The government tried to do right by everyone, but this is not justice, this is a discrimination against Jews in favor of the Arabs. I want to tell the government and the entire world – we are here to stay! Don’t disturb us in building our country!” Vardina concludes.

Because let’s face it: Hamas obviously can’t defeat the IDF in the field, soldier against soldier

IDF soldier injured in Gaza is evacuated by helicopter to Soroka hospital.

The residents of Gaza were not occupied by the Hamas; they voted for the terror organization in democratic elections, by a huge majority, by virtue of its uncompromising struggle against Israel. For this reason, the separation between the armed Hamas terrorists and those ‘not involved’ or ‘innocents’ is false. The Gazans are now paying for […]

The truth is we seldom explore with kids what prayer is supposed to be about.

Almost as one, Jews around the world are acknowledging the day-to-day peril facing ordinary Jews in Israel and the extraordinary service of the IDF in protecting them.

So on the one hand Secretary Kerry makes no bones about who is at fault for the current hostilities: he clearly blames Hamas.

King Solomon said it long ago: “Cast your bread upon the waters” because you don’t know when you’ll hit something. Our job is to do.

The anti-Israel camp does not need to win America fully to its side. Merely to neutralize it would radically alter the balance of power and put Israel in great jeopardy.

We mourn the dead, wish a speedy recovery to the wounded, and pray that God guides the government.
