I was sent the following view of the "war" and current security situation in Israel, for me to post anonymously. What do you think?
Does the Israeli Government really care about your children serving in the Israeli Defense Forces [IDF]?
Does the Israeli Government care more about how it looks in the eyes of the "international community" than its own constituents and soldiers?
Please leave your thoughts as comments below.
To those of you have have friends, family and or children that have joined the IDF and recently were sent into this politically motivated battle, I implore that you beg and demand they return home before they G-d forbid are sent back in a casket...
The current mini war is a means for Pipi to strengthen himself in the polls and not to restore and false sense of security to Jews.Regardless of their motivation for enlisting and going in to battle, this current mini-war is a farce and will accomplish nothing. The Hamas will remain in power, (and if not them it will be Fatah which is the same) the rocket supplies will soon be replenished, and the tunnels will continue to be dug faster than they can be destroyed. There is no reason for your friends or children to have their lives wasted in this politically motivated mini-war so Pipi can gain some popularity in the polls. The operation will not store or restore any security. There hasn't been any security for the last 65 years. Albeit the recent rocket attacks are now reaching the center of Israel but this is what the residence of the south deal with on a daily basis and will continue to deal with on a daily basis, long after this operation is over. Suppressing the rocket attacks and preventing terror can be done using unmanned aircraft without risking your children's lives!
The state of Israel directly funds and arms the Hamas and Fatah.
The IDF is one of the most Inhumane armies in the world.
Serving in the IDF is a Chilul Hashem and brings unnecessary danger to those who enlist
There is no mitzvah to be political canon-fodder.. Please come home...
The state of Israel funds the Hamas. Yes! You heard correctly! The state of Israel directly arms and funds the very terrorists that your pathetic friends and children are being sent to fight! See this article for example:
YNET: The Best Bank Governor of the State of Hamas (translated from Hebrew)
Israel is obligated by law to transfer funds to the Gaza Strip for humanitarian aid through the Bank of Israel. But is it legal to put money into the hands of those who kill our children?
Orna Shimoni, October 2010
Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer, winner of the World's Best Governor Prize, has been the central figure behind the pressure for the sweeping transfer of funds to Hamas. He is the one who has saved the terrorist organization from collapse, and continues to rebuild it and also prevent the collapse of the banks in the Gaza Strip. (cont.)
Isn't it ironic that the same state that funds these terrorists and buys them their weapons is now going to risk your child's life to “fight” them? Isn't that appalling? How are you not outraged?!
The IDF likes to boast on facebook and twitter, pictures of Israeli soldiers putting themselves in danger in order to save Arab children. They boast about how they called off airstrikes, thus, allowing rockets to be launched into the heart of Israel, simply because there were “civillians” in the vicinity of the rocket launching pad. They believe that it is humane to risk the lives of its own soldiers and civillians in order to spare lives of the enemy “civillian” population so they can gain popularity in the eyes of the world, thinking they will love us for being cruel to ourselves.... Is that the type of army you want your children serving in? Are you willing to risk your sons' lives so the IDF can “tweet” about how he died being “humane”?!
It is not my intention to go in to a lengthy halachic discussion regarding the countless issurim for serving in the army, maybe in another post. I would like to say that serving in an army that razes synagogues, Jewish homes, beats and torments Jews, and risks the lives of other Jews in order to look good in the eyes of the world is neither moral or halachicly appropriate. Simply put it is a Chilul Hashem!
To those still reading this I ask that you speak with your friends and family in a manner in which you think they will listen and request that they return home. There is no mitzvah or honor in being canon fodder in a politically motivated war which will accomplish NOTHING. Additionally, once this mini war is over the next target of the IDF and state will be us Jews living in Yehuda and Shomron! The politicians do not care about your childrens lives, if they did they would carpet bomb from the air until there is nothing left of Hamas and then, if need be send in some troops for some clean up... Don't allow your friends and children to be sacrificed on Pipis alter of public opinion. Beg and demand they come home before they are sent home in a coffin Heaven forbid...
