You've Got The Wrong Blog

I've been getting a lot more hits than usual, and I realize this is probably becuase everyone is searching for what's going on here with keywords like Israel Lebanon katyusha, and so on. All my information comes from here here ,or here, so you can just read it from there instead of me updating. If you want a good blog that has all the news from our side updated, click here. For all the news from a Lebanese side, click here.
We've just ended one of the more meaningful fasts. All day today Jews have been fasting to commemorate the 17th of Tammuz, a day that marks many tragic events in our people's history. I've never felt the meaning of some of the prayers til now "Our Father, our King, remove pestilence, sword, famine, captivity, destruction and plague from the children of Your covenant." Captivity, a fate on par with death. for some, it's worse than death. At least death brings with it closure. The family of Ron Arad hasnt had closure yet for twenty years! Dear God, please bring back home our three soldiers, Gilad Silat, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, plus our other MIAs that are still out there. Make us victorious over our enemies and put the fear of You in them.
