As the conflict in Israel continues, I ask you once again to join me in praying for Israel. Pray the peace of Jerusalem. Pray for the people of Palestine to accept the cease-fire plan and Israel's plea for peace. Please read my post from last week's Wisdom Wednesday that give a brief history of this long conflict.
This week, Israel has retaliated against the constant bombing. The media focuses on the deaths in Gaza and indeed it is tragic. It is not necessary, however, because the IDF notifies the residents prior to the bombing. The purpose of the bombing is not to kill innocent people. The bombings are to destroy rocket launchers and Hamas terrorists. They are warned hours ahead of time to get out of the area. Many refuse, and even place their children in harm's way.
This is the Prime Minister's response to this nonsensical actions of Hamas:
“Imagine the United States being bombarded, not in one city or two cities, but in every city between New York and Colorado. Maybe 20% of the United States would be exempt from this, 80% of your citizens would have to be in bomb shelters or ready to go into bomb shelters within a minute to a minute and a half max…You can’t – no country can accept that, we can’t accept it, and we’ll take the necessary actions to stop it!” - Benjamin Netanyahu
Please pray for an end to this tragic conflict.
