At six o’clock am on Sunday, Oct 7, many Israelis were woken by rockets fired from the Gaza Strip, and Hamas terrorists entered Israeli communities, taking residence hostages, including children. Notice I use the term terrorist, migrants, which is being used in the woke world in Israel with rockets being sent at a much higher frequency than in previous conflicts.
This is the most significant attack on Israel since the Yom Kippur War 50 years ago.
Hamas has taken over complete towns, and the IDF is pushing them out.
Per the IDF:
The IDF declares a state of alert for war.
over the past hour, the Hamas terrorist organization launched massive barrages of rockets from Gaza into Israel, and its terrorist operatives have infiltrated into Israel in a number of different locations in the south.
Civilians in southern and central Israel must remain near shelters, and in the area surrounding the Gaza Strip, inside shelters. The Chief of the General staff is currently conducting a situational assessment and approving plans for the IDF’s continued activity. The Hamas terrorist organization is responsible for these attacks and will face consequences for them.
The IDF says Hamas has taken over Israeli towns for kidnapping civilians. The IDF is getting them out one by one.
This isn’t an operation of 100 rockets a day. According to the IDF, by 9:30 am EDT, there were over 2,000 rockets fired at Israel during the first 8 Hours.
As far as Israel’s biggest ally:
The United States unequivocally condemns the unprovoked attacks by Hamas terrorists against Israeli civilians. There is never any justification for terrorism. We stand firmly with the Government and people of Israel and extend our condolences for the Israeli lives lost in these attacks. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan has spoken to Israeli National Security Advisor Tzachi Hanegbi and we remain in close contact with our Israeli partner
A question raised is similar to the Yom Kippur War: why was Israel surprised? Know that Israel was caught with their pants down. Israel will take Hamas out but don’t expect it to happen in one day. It will take a few days, perhaps a week or so.
What Can Americans Do?
Our Father in Heaven, Rock and Redeemer of Israel, bless the State of Israel, the first manifestation of the approach of our redemption. Shield it with Your lovingkindness, envelop it in Your peace, and bestow Your light and truth upon its leaders, ministers, and advisors, and grace them with Your good counsel. Strengthen the hands of those who defend our holy land, grant them deliverance, and adorn them in a mantle of victory. Ordain peace in the land and grant its inhabitants eternal happiness.
Lead them, swiftly and upright, to Your city Zion and to Jerusalem, the abode of Your Name, as is written in the Torah of Your servant Moses: “Even if your outcasts are at the ends of the world, from there the Lord your God will gather you, from there He will fetch you. And the Lord your God will bring you to the land that your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it; and He will make you more prosperous and more numerous than your fathers.” Draw our hearts together to revere and venerate Your name and to observe all the precepts of Your Torah, and send us quickly the Messiah son of David, agent of Your vindication, to redeem those who await Your deliverance.
Manifest yourself in the splendor of Your boldness before the eyes of all inhabitants of Your world, and may everyone endowed with a soul affirm that the Lord, God of Israel, is king and his dominion is absolute. Amen forevermore.
2) Shut UP. Not kidding. If, perchance, you see a troop movement on YouTube, Or your cousin Mika, who lives in Tel Aviv, says she saw a squadron marching south, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF: Hamas has computers also you will be telling Hamas the IDF’s next move.
3) Unless you have heard it from the IDF or the Israeli govt, consider it a lie. Even if you read it in a trusted newspaper, reports from the war zone are made very fast and include many mistakes.
The latest IDF statement regarding Israeli casualties is 100 confirmed dead and 1,000+ wounded.
The news is fast and furious. It will be posted on this site as it is confirmed, no rumors. Israel will be on top, but it won’t be easy. As Bette Davis said in All About Eve, “Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.”
