Israel Has the Right To Defend Itself
After an unprecedented rocket attack aimed at Jerusalem, Israel increased its air assault on the Gaza Strip. On Saturday, Israel hit security compounds, smuggling tunnels, hit the Hamas Police Headquarters and destroyed the offices of Hamas prime Minister Ismail Haniveh. According to the Associated Press, “In all, at last 30 Palestinians, including a dozen civilians, and three Israeli civilians have been killed since the Israeli operations began.”
In past Hamas attacks on Israel, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem (which were both attacked this week) were not within their reach. Because of the widened scope of targets on both side, the inevitability of an all-out war increases.
President Obama spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and “reiterated U.S. support for Israel’s right to self-defense.”
Today, there will be a rally in Los Angeles at 1 PM in the Federal Building to show support of Israel. Their purpose is to show solidarity for Israel and its people and to remind the world that the United States is with Israel in its right to defend itself. It is a rally to fight terror and support Israel. Please pray for the safety of those here in our land who pledge support of Israel. Please pray for Israel...that peace would soon come to the land!
