Finally!

After weeks and months of unending rocket and mortar fire from Gaza, it looks like we're finally going to respond in some sort of serious form. Sitting in my office's bomb shelter during a rocket attack this week, many of us were wondering out loud when enough would finally be enough.

This afternoon in a coordinated series of pinpoint strikes, the Israel Air Force killed Hamas' top military commander, wounded at least three other top Gaza terrorists, knocked out a big part of gazas command and control network, destroyed a warehouse containing many of the long range missiles currently held by Gaza terror groups, and opened fire with tanks and artillery at high value targets inside Gaza.

Additionally, many israeli army units have been moved south to staging areas near Gaza and many reserve units have been called up effective immediately.

Eerily, there is a nearly unanimous support for today's action across Israel's political spectrum, and for now, foreign leaders are staying mum.

Please,have our sons and daughters in the IDF in your thoughts and prayers.

Translation:

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our God from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May Hashem cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor. May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your God, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you. Now let us respond: Amen.

Amen. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Israeli people and the IDF.... even if our (American) President is not.
