Urgent Prayer for the Mid East
Israel has finally said, "Enough" to the constant, daily, barrage of rockets on its southern borders. In retaliation, the IAF has strategically targeted Hamas security and military installations and weapons depots. Since Hamas, a terrorist group, uses the Gazan people to camouflage its operations, there have been civilian casualties. Hamas refuses to give in, and, in defiance, continues to launch rockets...today, they killed an Israeli and wounded others.
This is a crisis!! The world, already sympathetic to the Arabs, is condemning Israel for defending its citizens. Nothing at all was reported about, nor was there heard an outcry among any of these nations concerning the thousands of rockets that have fallen in Israel just since the beginning of 2008. Nothing was heard about the violation of the cease fire by Hamas. Only have we heard about Israel's lack of compassion for closing the border crossings into Gaza in response to the relentless attacks by the terrorists.
We need to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for wisdom for Israeli leaders as they try to end the madness by those who instill hatred for Jews and call for their annihilation. These militants do not want peace...you can not negotiate with terrorists and anyone who thinks you can, is deceived.
