Once again this past week a threatening rain of lethal missiles began falling on Sderot and other vulnerable southern Israeli communities, following deadly terrorist attacks along the Sinai and Neguev borders. Since Monday, over 120 missiles have been launched into Israel, with more than 70 fired on Wednesday alone!
Many residing here in this war-front city must once again suffer the trauma of unexpected attacks, since, as yet, ‘The Iron-Dome’ defense system is technically inadequate to prevent each and every missile from landing somewhere near the communities which are so close to the rocket launching source. Armed only with “blind faith’, these beleaguered people are again faced with the opening of wounds buried not so long ago following the hundreds of past missile attacks from which they have scarcely recovered. Upon hearing the loud blare of the incoming-rocket siren or ‘red alert’ the question immediately rises, “Where is the nearest shelter…and can I possibly make it in 15 short seconds, especially, running with small children”? This is the painful reality thousands of Israelis must now live through.
On top of all this, it has just been announced that the Muslim Brotherhood has won the national elections in Egypt. Hamas, which governs Gaza, is an ideological offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas terrorists have been firing celebratory shots in Gaza!
Please declare Psalm 91 over all of Israel and pray for a speedy recovery for all the traumatized.
