Ground Troops in Gaza

Filed under: Current Events,Mishaps/tests/U name it — Reb Moshe @ 1:15 am

As ground troops go into the unsafe terrain of Gaza. We have to continue to do mitzvos all over the world to protect the soldiers and southern Jews who are fighting terrorism. Feel free to leave your thoughts and blessings here.
Are we overreacting? Well a recent poll this month showed that Fifty-four percent of Gaza residents said they supported rocket fire on Israeli civilians. Right now northern Israel isn’t safe either. There are rockets already pointing at my home town by Hezbollah. Still, I feel much more safer here under the wings of Hashem then US cities which have shootings, murders, and robberies in the dozens daily.


  1. The main problem is that the leaders of Israel are Torahless and owned by the Council on Foreign Relations/CFR! We NEED leaders that FEAR YkVk, and a nation that MUST teshuva of ALL things contrary to the Written Torah! Israel is filled with the ways of the Torahless West!!! Think about it, why did our so called leaders uproot Torah keeping Jewish settlers from Gush Katif in the FIRST PLACE! Why??? Why??? Because they are puppets and NOT YkVk fearing Torah keepers!!! The United States is NOT your ally, nor is Britain!!! Do your homework, these nations do NOT fear YkHVk, nor do they follow Mashiyach, or keep the Torah.

    May YkVk fight for us as HE did in the days of old!!! Prepare for Malchut Elokim!!! Baruch Haba B’Shem YkVk!!!

  2. I pray that Hashem protects all of Israel & all of my Jewish brothers & sisters & the troops as they fight to protect the Holy land.
    Hashem promises the Jewish People that this simple act will usher the era of global peace:

  3. Again, every mitzvah, every act to refrain from sin, CAN SAVE A JEWISH LIFE. We are all connected. Remember, the media is very one sided and it is important to share the truth of our suffering. Also, to remember to support fully Jews defending Jews against a nation that clearly wants to shed Jewish blood. They voted for Hamas and even those non-Hamas hate and are taught to Kill Jews. We must not pray half-hearted but fully for our people.

  4. i pray for the safety all Isreal but I also pray to those in Gaza either arab or Jewish that have no part in the rocket fires and do not support Hamas may be kept safe. It is sad that they must go through this but it is a necessary evil to lead to a better good. A day when Isreali’s do not have to fear terrorist and when both arabs and Jews in the region may live in peace. May hashem grant peace!!!!

  5. Praying ” to those arabs that have no part in the rocket fires” how ” sentimental” Mike . To your best knowledge those arabs chose Hamas as a ligal government. Why don’t you try living in those cities like Shderot or Ashkelon and other southern cities where for 8 years people live in a state of war , where children live in fear of constant sirens and where kasam may fall on their home or classroom . State of Israel didn’t ask for that war, we are fighting for our existance and we have every right to. And i don’t really care what their casualties are , you know why?! Because i am a mother as well and if someone would come and try to hurt my kids i would protect them at any price. War is a war. And my only prayer now is for l our defence forces that risking their lives in order that Israel will have a peaceful life. GOD BLESS IDF AND KEEP THEM SAFE!

  6. War of any type is madness. Peace can only occur if the madness is put aside. All races and religions must learn to get along. No matter how they pray or see the Lord. I pray for peace, that all may get along and stand side by side and not judge nor look down upon their fellow man or woman. We are all human and have our imperfections.
    I pray for all the Jews, all Christians and Muslims and the whole human race. I pray that those who hate can see the wrong in that. I pray that Hashem grants peace for all humankind.

  7. As an American looking in, I have to question the sanity of the Palestinians. Palestinian has a slingshot, Israel has a tank.

    Palestinians have hand held rocket launchers, Israel has IAF.

    If they would just quit lobbing rockets over the wall, would they still be in this situation?

    Speak softly and carry a large gun.

    GO IDF! We’ll stop blowing your stuff up if you stop blowing up ours.

    G-d bless Israel and smite His enemies before the eyes of his children!
    Shimon and Levi once killed the whole man-population of Shechem because no one in Shechem objected against the stealing of their sister Dinah, which made the whole city accessories in stealing. Stealing is forbidden under thread of capital penalty according to the 7 Noahide Commandments which apply to all the gentile nations of this world. So is murder. And firing rockets on civilians is attempted murder.
    So, in this spirit, the gazans really should have tried to throw hamas out of there by themselves, otherwise they would be also liable.

  9. It’s about time the Israelis did something about this…for 8 yrs the Gazans have been throwing missles at us and nothing was done…I just pray that ALL the soldiers return home to their families and that the trash gets thrown out.

  10. I know people that live near gaza and they are living in terror and can’t leave their house. This is not something that will end overnight. We must continue to pray for sanity and the sanity of everyone.

  11. Olga i understand outrage, but as a soldier and seen combat first hand in both Iraq and Afghanistan you have an insight into what war really is. In the case of Isreal it is true and i agree with everything their doing. Civillain casualties are part of warfare. But to say that Hamas was elected by the “people” is a joke. Though hamas may not have tanks. Though hamas does not have planes and advanced weaponary of modern countries. People are easily controlled when somebody threatens you with a gun. Since, you are a mother maybe you would understand that you might vote somebody in if say they told you that they would wipe out your family out.
    Tendor that same thinking is what leads to mass genocide and the killing of thousands. Once you kill someone, once you see first hand what killing really is like; such an accusation is hard to make. Also with that archaic thinking you wouldn’t know were to stop. When the killing of an entire population needs to end. If you went to use examples from the torah take the story of Abraham when he attempted to save sodam and gemorah. Do you not think that there are 10 good men in Gaza?

    Dear Mike, I tried to make an analysis of the situation from a point of view, connected with the 7 laws of Noah. Of course one has to be very careful with such kind of logic, you’re right that this could lead to a genocide and has in the past. But these laws apply still for all human beings, and according to them we are being judged. Their violation causes severe judgement to come upon the world. Often that is the reason why G-d, blessed be He, decrees to send war or another plague to a nation, and that is when tousands of humans die. So, my thinking is not archaic. You were in Iraq. Also the Gulf war was decreed from Heaven. It was even forsawn from a great Chassidic Master and Rebbe more than 10 years before that. Take a look at this link:

    And after all, Israel aims not at the whole population of Gaza, but primarly the militants.

    The story of Abraham is indeed a very good example and I hope there are even more than 10 righteous Noahides in Gaza. (Another example of G-d’s mercy toward sinners is the story of The Prophet Yonah and Nineveh, nevertheless Nineveh was also destroyed some years after Yonah).
    But did you remember what Abraham did to the four kings who captured Lot after they defeated the kings of Sodom & Gommorah (Gen. 14, Parsha Lech Lecha), he pursued them and smote them all. One, who commits theft incl. kidnapping is also liable according to the 7 laws of Noah.
    In my opinion, the sole withdrowal from Gaza years ago was the mistake and also the root of the last developments there. I just hope G-d guard His firstborn Israel and gives them and the whole world peace and redemption as soon as possible.
