  1. What is unbelievable is the sheer ignorance from comment #1, 2. You think that by leveling Gaza, that will solve the problem? Don’t you understand that the fact that the State Of Israel exists there will always be problems? There has never been peace in the Holyland and there never will be peace until the State is dismantled and Moshiach takes over. So instaed of praying for an IDF victory, pray for Moshiach

  2. #3: Believe me I am no zionist, if anything I was actually pointing out the stupidity of the state. If we are truely interested in bringing Moshiach however, we might want to think twice before rushing to call a fellow Jew names…

  3. Git meshige your name says it all. Did you get up today and daven for your needs, parnasa helath, etc, victories over enemies is no different. You do your best and hope for h-shems help. You don’t roll over and play dead. The israelis have not done their best as per ” if one comes to kill you, get up earlier and kill him first”

  4. Basicly this says everyone promises to be a good boy and anyone who is not will get a timeout in the corner. If they are really bad they might get a good lecturing too.
