It is sad to hear that Israel has been forced to send ground troops into Gaza. It's time to rid the world of Hamas and their like thinkers who do not think that Israel should exist. The demonstration of force, brutal force, will remind the world why there needs to be a Jewish state: to defend Jews from those who would rather see all Jews dead and Israel cease to exist. NEVER AGAIN. All those who support Hamas should consider again what they are doing by following violence as a way of life. Let the IDF do its work, ruthlessly, and get out as soon as they have accomplished their goals. The terrorism needs to stop, and will stop, one way or the other.
He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob -- may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Forces, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our God, from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.
May the Almighty cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighters from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.
May He lead our enemies under our soldiers' sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is the Lord your God, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.
Now let us respond: Amen.
