Angry and Sad

I think most Israelis are feeling about the same thing today – sad, and angry. I’ll leave it to others to articulate how – Dry Bones here (the short version) and Treppenwitz here (the long version).

I feel badly for the Regev and Goldwasser families, who still had hopes that their loved ones were alive. I feel badly for the families of those who were killed by the terrorists released today. And I am very angry that we traded live terrorists for dead bodies.

Now the terrorists have an incentive to kidnap more soldiers. Where is our backbone? How can we survive if our leaders can’t make the tough decisions?

    Many of us outside Israel feel like this as well.

    Thanks for the mention. I wish it was for a more up-beat post.

    Jack – you know, that is very comforting to hear.

    Treppenwitz – no problem

    Leora – sometimes simple is best.

    I can’t imagine how you must feel. We are angry, hurt, frustrated, and we live over here in Canada!
