What If Terrorists Could Shoot Rockets at Your Country?

What If Terrorists Could Shoot Rockets at Your Country?

Imagine if Gaza terrorists were your neighbors and could shoot the deadly M-302 rocket at your home.


It is now clear that Hamas has received powerful M-302 rockets from Iran, placing over 3.5 million Israelis in danger. Yesterday, an M-302 rocket hit the city of Hadera, which is 100 km (62 mi) away from Gaza. The Israel Navy found the same type of rocket onboard the Klos C vessel in March. The ship, intercepted in the Red Sea, was carrying Iranian weapons destined for Gaza terrorists.

The M-302 has a strike range of 160 kilometers, allowing Hamas to target most of Israel.

Must we aways remind people of how nice we are?

I'm so tired of hearing that we Jew's do everything we can to only kill the one guy doing the attack?? Really, here in the US, we were attacked and we were more than happy to attack the wrong country. In case you're asleep at the wheel, they HATE us, they don't like Jews. Stop telling them you're nice, that it's self defense. If you attacked them with marsh mellows and popcorn, they show pictures of Syria and blame it on us. STOP TRYING TO BE LIKED, and try being feared. It's much safer or our children. REMEMBER, we're Jews, if we invented a pill to end all decease, they'd still run articles stating we use children for matzah, and you're never going to fix the Jesus thing.

Yes, everyone is upset that Israel showed retaliation after our 3 teenagers were killed. Does the world not know that these terrorists do not value their kids ? They do not value life. Period. What other reason would they have to send their children as suicide bombers? Yes the boy was innocent, but so were our 3 boys. To those who have kids, my question is, what would you do if someone harmed or killed your kid ??

What's the number of rockets Arabs can terrorize Israel with before the international community will agree Israel can defend herself?

I can't answer that riddle for you because I only have a vertical figure 8 on my keyboard. But the correct non-numerical answer is "who cares".

The "unbreakable friend" who claims he's "got Israel's back" is exerting diplomatic, economic and military pressure to extract Israeli "restraint" while Iran-backed terrorists with rockets and a burgeoning nuclear weapons program earmarked for wiping Israel off the map stab Israel in the back. There's nothing to be gained by reasoning with him; he has proven he is impervious to reason at every opportunity. So the fools among us will proceed with their errand, while our responsible adults will ignore the drivel and continue prosecuting this necessary defensive military campaign until the terrorism threat is at last vanquished.

Do not waste your time on "ifs"

The Land of Israel is our Legacy,the more we understand and feel it the better. Most important is to explain this point to our young generation, because too often they have difficulty to understand what the conflict is about and tend to see it from victim-perpetrator point of view.The better we know who we are and why the Land of Israel is the place the G-d commanded us to live in, the stronger our position is going to become.We may not tell our children (and the world for that matter) half the truth about the Exile and our life in other countries, we have to speak, first of all, about the reasons the exiles, expulsions and other hardships were allowed to take place by the Creator.Children are much cleverer than we think, and they feel every bit of the falseness in our "stories" and that is why, be they from secular or religious families, they do not buy them. All the time we do not say out loud, that the Land of Israel is given to us by G-d for the very important spiritual work to do, which is mostly directed on willing change of the egoistic nature into the bestowing one with the Help of Torah and Mitzvot, all the time we try to find out any other reasons for our Legacy to this Land neither our young generation not the world is going to listen to our arguments. We all remember the "famous" slogans of those who try to help Soviet Jews to leave for Israel, they all said: "Let My people go" and it's the best example of half truth!, because the whole sentence says "LET MY PEOPLE GO TO WORK ME!!!" Hope we are still capable of comprehending the difference.
Stating the real reason to ourselves, our children and the world seems rather difficult to us, because this reason puts us all responsible for what is going in our country.

Drawing the maps with the 100 mile range is as useful as speaking of what would be, if there were or were not... .
The Creator placed the Gaza Strip in the Land of Israel and He Knows very well, what He does. Wake Up.

These maps really brought into focus what it would mean to be within 100 miles of an enemy capible of launching rockets at one. Having commented yesterday on the subject, I asked what one would do if Ann Arbour were launching rockets at Detroit - I did not realize how feasible such an attack would be and the extent of the danger the people in Israel are.
