War, or Not a War, that is the Question

Firstly, I'd just like to say that after reading this, I would love to see this:
Traitor's Head on Stick

The latest Israel National Radio news reports that Hamas is declaring that Israel has declared war on the Hamas government. (Similar whiney reports from the Arab side include last night's "The IAF retreated from Syria because the Syrian army started firing on the planes flying near the President's palace." Crap. The only firing going on involved Assad's intelligence cheifs standing in front of a firing squad shortly after the event.) Hamas has called for Arabs living in the Galilee area (that's Israel proper, which would make them Israeli citizens) to fast in protest of Israeli action (aw, look at the poor, starving ticking time bombs). In turn, these Arabs have declared that they are aligning themselves with Hamas.

DEBKA reports that the US is behind the arrest of Hamas agents in the West Bank. True or not, if America was doing what they ought to be doing, they'd be shipping weapons and supplies to the IDF and spearheading a pro-Israel public relations campaign in the international media. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that America can never do enough to support Israel and repay her debt to the nation she willingly sold up the river last August. If I'm supposed to suddenly become pro-American and get all excited over the Bush government because they may or may not have assisted the IDF in this operation, all I can say is GET REAL. Salvation comes from HaShem. The current powers that be (in America and the rest of the international community) pay nothing more than lip service to righteous ideals as they use their own, truly righteous troops as cannon fodder in the battle for world domination.

The funeral for Eliyahu Asheri is scheduled for today at 2:30 pm. According to Israeli news sources, Asheri was murdered nearly immediately after being kidnapped. This is not a good sign for the life of Gilad Shalit. However, it does not surprise me. These people are barbarians. The most I can do is rationalize that an immediate death is better than facing days of barbaric torture punctuated by a quick murder or a slow and painful one. These deaths mark the beginning, and not the end of our battle. In Genesis 9:5, Adonai says, "I will demand from every human being an accounting for the life of his fellow human being." We have a responsiblity to Eliayhu and Gilad to make it clear to our nation and the world that their lives are accounted for by every Jewish person.

The body of Noah Moskowitz was found near the Rishon leTziyon cemetary. It is still unclear as to whether or not he was actually kidnapped and murdered by terrorists.

Headlines aren't pouring in as fastly as they were yesterday, which I'm taking as a good sign. Less talk, more action: that is the way wars are won.
