the 3 abducted israeli boys

The Rabbi has forgotten to mention a very important point. What really pushed Israel to act was the abduction and murder of the three Israeli students, If it hadn't been for that who know if Israel would have gone in,

Thank God for Israel……...

Dear Rabbi Salomon,
Having written you previously you may recall that I am a devout Christian and therefore an ardent supporter of Israel and the jewish people - God's chosen people.
My wife and I have just returned to Australia after spending 2 weeks touring Israel from our base in Tel Aviv. After arriving on Thursday evening July 10th we read the warning notes about Air Raid procedures and experienced our first Rocket Alarm the next morning at 8am. Fortunately we were dressed and able to join the other hotel guests who all walked in an orderly fashion to the designated Safe Place on our hotel floor until the All Clear was sounded some time later.
During our time in Tel Aviv we had 4 such Alerts in various locations and all the residents handled it with great composure.
I mention this only to confirm that our main purpose in visiting Israel at this time was not just to visit the wonderful historical sites, that Jews and Christians hold in equal reverence, but to try and demonstrate to the people of Israel that we really do love the Jewish people and want to share their struggle.
On our return to Australia we were soon saddened to hear the number of nominal Christians who are influenced by the distorted media reportage of this conflict and this has given us the renewed energy and conviction to meet this misinformation with the true facts of this long standing struggle.
We continue to pray for Israel in the absolute confidence that God will protect and safeguard His chosen people as the rest of Bible prophesy continues to be revealed.
Shalom,
Brian A.Donnelly

Trust God

In tough times it seems to be the hardest thing to remember is trust g-d.
