Israel Matzav reports: Shake-up in northern command means push to Litani going ahead

The JPost headline (no link) is confirming that the Cabinet has approved the push to the Litani. Of course, because of such bad leadership in the Israeli government, the IDF is now forced into a highly expensive, highly risky operation. When the leaders fail, the community pays a price. Yet, at the same time, scripture teaches us that there is also a hefty price to be paid by the individual who commits the sin. I believe the key here is for the community to realize that wrong has been done, to draw it out into the open and confront it, and repent for obeying orders that went directly against Torah. I say call the leaders onto the carpet and let Adonai be the judge. Right now, we need to be a unified minyan. Critical analysis is healthy, but we can't let it develop into schisms between competing factions. A house divided against itself cannot stand.

The JPost reports: US official makes unexpected visit to Lebanon
Government officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information, gave no details about the meeting with Prime Minister Fuad Saniora.

Welch, who was last here on Saturday, was expected to meet later in the day with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri.
This, combined with the rumors flying that Bush isn't taking Olmert's phone calls, leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Americans beware: Congress may be forming a pro-Israel caucus, and Jerry Falwell may be on the Jews' side, but the powers that be aren't necessarily those who respect the power of the people.

I've gotten some really nice emails of support for Israel from different bloggers and readers lately. To all of you out there tuning into this blog and paying attention to what's going on in Israel with a concerned heart, I give you my thanks and pray that you would be blessed for blessing G-d's people in accordance with the promises in His word. Remember: We're all in this together! Keep that fighting spirit going!

Some great posts can be found at Israelity. I've been entertained, intrigued, and moved by too many to link individually, so just go check out the whole blog.

The blog world reports that Arab Israelis are mad-- at Hizbollah. Gee, I wonder why. Maybe because Hizbollah has such great aim.

Sabra at Heart penned a moving piece, supporting the IDF. Read it. Live it.
