War Haiku

by Reb Akiva at Mystical Paths

(Ok, it's not really going to be a Haiku, I'm not quite that poetic.)

We pray for the soldiers who risk their lives to protect ours.

We listen in disbelief as the enemy insists on the right to attack and kill with impunity, on prime time media.

We calm our children who look at the map and see the missile reach coming closer, while starting to clear out our in-home bomb shelter.

We startle as jets surprise us flying low and fast on their way to the enemy.

We gag as "world leaders" demand Israel not defend her citizens, insisting on a cease fire that never ceases from the enemy.

We wonder why ambulances and trucks with supplies sit ON THE EGYPTIAN-GAZA border and HAMAS WON'T LET THEM IN, and the media ignores this.

We shake our heads sadly at the pictures from Gaza, with children carefully pre-arranged around the injured to increase the photo impact.

We consider, are nevuos (prophecies) and predictions coming true, and hesitate to speak of what may be next.

We go to synagogue, to work, and to school, and a war is going on just a short drive away.

We trust in the One Above that all is for the best.

If Israel's leaders were interested in defending Israeli citizens, then they'd place the Mobile Tactical High Energy Laser (MTHEL) weapon system in the towns that keep suffering rocket attacks! The US-Israeli made THEL shot down a KC-135 drone at Edwards AFB when I was in the US military in the early 1980's and the smaller US-Israeli made MTHEL has been perfected since the year 2000 and can shot down everything from ICBMs to multiple mortar rounds. This technology has been around and working just fine for almost 30 years now. 30 YEARS! So, one wonders why is it that the Israeli leadership doesn't make use of the very weapon system that Israel helped the US develop and perfect!?

Forget about a cease-fire! Create a virtual defense bubble around Israel and stop carving off pieces of The Land in order to placate "world leaders."y'd place the Mobile Tactical High Energy Laser (MTHEL) weapon system in the towns that keep suffering rocket attacks!

Delete my prior comment. Not sure what happened there!
