A Soldier’s Mother blogs on a very important topic – the fact that what would be outrageous in another country is unfortunately ordinary here in Israel. I am talking about the fact that mortar shells are being launched at our cities in the south. We don’t react when they (thank G-d) fall onto open areas – we just are grateful that noone is hurt. What we should be doing is screaming our outrage. What is worse is that the world only reacts when we react – and kill the terrorists launching the shells.
Even those who support Israel are sometimes uncomfortable when the IDF manages to kill terrorists, and there are no Jewish dead around in order to “justify” it, as I wrote before.
There will be another operation soon in Gaza, in order to go in and kill the terrorists that are still launching rockets and mortar shells into Israel. Remember the reason why.
