Tzeva Adom, Tzeva Adom........

This is my one hundredth posting on Miriam’s Words. I wanted this post to be light and fun. Blogging is a hobby.... Unlike serious bloggers who blog daily, I blog when I have time. I never truly believed I would reach 100 postings....  

But we live in difficult times and I just couldn’t bring myself to post a fun blog.   

Will you please bear with me? I once again have the need to put pen to paper [or for this blog sit down at the computer] and vent my thoughts..

As I have written before, my family and I live in the south of Israel, the Negev. We live in a war zone, never knowing when or where a rocket will explode... 

Children are afraid to play outside, go to school and go to sleep. They are afraid a missile will hit them and they will die or their family will die. The elderly are suffering from fear...fear that they can’t get to the safe room on time. Depression among citizens is very high. Enjoying a Shabbat meal or going for a Shabbat walk is something we can’t take for granted.  A siren can sound at any time.  

The situation is impossible, residents are told not to leave their shelters. Over a million Israeli citizens are held hostage! 

On Sunday, Israel Hayom Newsletter, headline read:

Why isn’t the government doing something so that the residents of Eshkol or any other Southern community are not stuck in or around their shelters for days?

When will the terror end? When will our government take our plight seriously? Why are they so afraid of world opinion? Relying on the iron dome, sending in the IAF to kill a terror cell or two, bombing a weapons tunnel are all band aids and frankly a little insulting to southern residents.
Aren’t we citizens? We pay taxes. Many have served our country with dignity. The job of the government is to protect its citizens........where is our protection?

Enough already! Time to reenter Gaza to return and repopulate the land with its rightful owners..... Us! The Jewish people!

May the Hand of Hashem continue to protect Am Yisrael!

This is a Grad Missile that landed in Sedot Negev


This is the large crater it made.


Until next time. Please feel free to comment and share.
