Nothing More To Say

I would update more, but I ran out of what to say. This war is taking too long. We arent even talking about destroying Hezzbala, we have no real objective other than grabbing as much land as possible, which is entirely pointless when the enemy is shooting long range missiles. So we can continue fighting, continue killing and getting killed, but we will end up exactly where we were, with Ehud and Eldad still kidnapped, and rockets raining down on us. We can't either give up, as that would set a horrible precedent and guarantee another war. So we are stuck fighting an unwinnable war, with no end in sight that will be good for us.

My brother-in-law got the weekend off, my in-laws are calm for the first time in a month. We are going there for Shabbat so we can finally see him.

I may have just read this on someones blog, or just randomly remembered it, but theres an old joke about a Jew in Germany in the 1930's who was reading the German paper. His friend yelled at him, "How can you read that anti-semitic propaganda?!?" He answered him, "In the Jewish papers all I read about is poverty and hunger, and how bad the Jews are doing. But in the German paper they talk about how the Jews are rich and taking over the world. I'd much rather read that!" In that same vein, I've stopped reading Israeli news about rockets falling and soldiers getting killed. Instead I read Aljazeera about cities we've bombed and how we're taking everything over.
May we have a Shabbat of peace and quiet.

You better think about where you can move to away from the Middle East.

G_d has forsaken your people. In every other war Israel has been in since 1948 G_d has blessed your people with miracles to help you win, but not this war.

Why?

I believe it's because of the tolerance that has been seen in your nation for homosexuality, BSDM, and other immoral behavior.

Chronicles 24:20
New International Version (NIV)

20 Then the Spirit of G_d came upon Zechariah son of Jehoiada the priest. He stood before the people and said, "This is what G_d says: 'Why do you disobey the LORD's commands? You will not prosper. Because you have forsaken the LORD, he has forsaken you.'
