" Thou comest to me with a sword and a spear and a shield, but I come to thee in the name of the L-rd of Hosts, the G-d of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast humiliated..." (I Samuel, 17:45-47)

Rockets Cause Anxiety- An Academic Study (audio)

If our tax dollars paid for this study, I'd like my money back.

I have relatives who sustained a direct hit to their house from a Grad rocket during "Operation Cast Lead". Thank G-d, everyone was in the shelter when it landed. I visited them on Yom Haatzmaut, and although the house has since been repaired (I did have a chance shortly after the war to witness the damage), the tool shed remains a testament to the destruction. Hundreds of holes, large and small, litter the shed, in addition to an adjoining stone wall, courtesy of shrapnel shards that pierced their walls. Some holes are at neck and skull level, and if a person was in the vicinity, that would be the end of them.

During the day, I had an opportunity to see and actually hold the remains of two large Kassam rockets that the Hamas-Nazis launched from Gaza. (The Grad that hit their house was immediately confiscated by the IDF, and probably given to some leftist peace eunuch who will go on to create metal peace doves out of the remains.) As I held the very same rockets that were crafted by soulless Arab beasts with the sole intent of killing Jews and spilling as much of our blood as possible, I was filled with rage. To think what Amalek is getting away with, because of our flaccid weak-kneed leaders who refuse to destroy these blood-thirsty creatures and transfer the rest of the Arab populace out of the country. Hellenistic eunuchs who refuse to liberate and annex every inch of Jewish soil. "No Arabs, No bombs" is not just the catchy phrase on a popular t-shirt. It also happens to be the Halachah. As long as there are Arabs in Israel, Jews will be murdered by Arabs, and we will never be free men.

Nor is mere freedom from man an ends in itself. The only free man is the G-d fearing one who is solely concerned with the requirements of the Torah. May we become free men in the near future, so that the next time the chag comes around, we can refer to ourselves as being truly independent of man and men, and as genuine Servants of The Almighty.

Perhaps some day soon, the IDF will have a real man at the helm who will unshackle the soldiers and allow them to fight the enemy, in the manner that the Torah demands we fight a war. Proper vengeance against our enemies will help cleanse the collective Jewish soul. Tikkun Olam with an M-16, if you will. And on that day, there won't be any question at all about the Halachic requirement. Hallel with a brachah.
