Israel finally defends its citizens

Hi everyone. Here in Beit Shemesh we heard warplanes, and possibly missile explosions, today right before Shabbat lunch. As of now the news is good -- Israel appears to finally have done something right to defend its citizens against the thousands of rockets that have been fired from Gaza since Israel withdrew from Gaza.

We're all praying that the Israeli army finish its mission successfully, quickly, with as few casualties as possible.

I'm not optimistic. Israel never seems to finish the job they start. They bow to pressure from the U. S., UN, and EU.

BTW, you were speaking of Jewish casualties, right? If you were taking about Arabs, then you may want to review the halacha. According to the Ramba"m, one of the few who addresses these issues, the entire people is an enemy, not just the leaders,...even more so when in a milhemeth misswah,...even more so if battling a people with the din of one of the 7 nations.
