A brief thought on the situation in Sderot and the words of the navi (biblical prophets)...
What's going on is neither something new, nor a surprise. There will be a war before the final battle of Gog uMagog, as described in Yecheskal 38, where we crush the Arabs. If you note the list of nations that come against Klal Yisroel, the Arab nations and the plishtim (the Palestinians) aren't listed! Why is that?
Because Israel is pushed and pushed, and finally turns around and hits back, wiping out their nearby enemies permanently. Then there is a short break, Israel is described as being completely at peace.
But then, the world turns on Israel and the ultimate, the war of Gog uMagog comes upon us.
