Chaim begins by stating that it is a very difficult task to remove the threat of terror from the Gaza Strip, where it’s been the only way of life most residents have known for most of the last generation. Nevertheless, some operations are winding down and some reserve units are being demobilized and sent home.

He then mentions the deal that Qatar has tried to broker that would allow medicines to be delivered to Israeli hostages inside Gaza. He says that he really wants to know how many hostages are still alive, saying that he and his comrades keep finding Hamas terror tunnels and the hostages might be in one of them.

He then moves to a speculative thought about why Hamas and others hate Jewish people so much. He rhetorically asks “what have Jewish people been doing in the world” for most of the past 2,000 years?

He says there are about 15 million Jews in the world, as opposed to nearly 2 billion Moslems. Jews have won 214 Nobel Prize’s over the years, many of them for inventions that made life better for everyone living on this planet. It’s part of Jewish culture to leave the world in better shape than it was when you found it.

He says that some want to wipe out the Jewish people and they think it’s a perfectly reasonable idea, but the Jews aren’t going to willingly submit to this idea, they’re going to fight for their lives. He asks his viewers to continue praying for the IDF and the Jewish people more broadly.

He concludes by quoting Psalms 79:10-13; Why should the nations say, “Where is their God?” Let there be known among the nations in our sight the avenging of the blood of Your servants which has been shed.

Let the groaning of the prisoner come before You; According to the greatness of Your power preserve those who are appointed to die; and return to our neighbors sevenfold into their bosom their reproach with which they have reproached You, O Lord.

So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture, will give You thanks forever; we will show forth Your praise to all generations.
