January 24th 2024 – Day 109

Chaim starts out with a lament for the 21 IDF soldiers who were killed in action on Monday, following a day when 3 IDF soldiers were killed. It’s been a difficult week for the IDF, and the entire nation is in mourning.

Chaim gives a brief description of the action which led to the deaths of these soldiers and then says that the IDF is not stopping because of what happened. Khan Younis is continuing to be surrounded, there are negotiations going on behind the scenes to try and end the war and return the Israeli hostages. Egypt, Qatar, and many other regional and global powers are involved in these negotiations.

At the same time, there’s rising regional tensions involving Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Lebanon and many other countries. The situation is very unstable and the US as well as other Western governments, and even some of the new global heavyweights like India and China, are trying to come in to stabilize things, obviously trying to move things in a direction that they’d find the most advantageous.

Chaim says that the focus of the IDF is to play their part in this drama by demolishing Hamas so that someone else can come to take over the administration of the Gaza Strip. He doesn’t know who it will be, but Hamas can’t be in charge there anymore. Chaim says this is necessary to prevent the next massacre of Israeli civilians.

He also mentions the attempt by ISIS to blow up the Israeli Knesset, which was stopped, and this was probably related to the plan for Saudi Arabia to join the Abraham Accords. He said that this plan is necessary and it needs to go forward. He says there are many voices calling for peace and he asks his viewers to join him in moving this peace plan of the Abraham Accords forward.

He concludes by saying that the Islamic forces in Gaza and elsewhere don’t want “peace” in the Western way of speaking. They believe that there is only two ways for a Muslim to exist, having brought the world into subjugation to Islam, or being in a state of struggle in order to achieve that objective. But there’s a way to live in peace with such people and that is to get them to a point where they think they need a break from fighting, and then they will call a “time out” or in Arabic a “hudna”. Then they’ll stop fighting for awhile until they’ve regrouped, reorganized and rearmed for another round.

Chaim says that this state of being in a “hudna” is the only way the neighbors of such people can have a peaceful life and so this is the best we can hope for, and while they’re in their “hudna” we must be very vigilant to monitor them and prevent them from getting strong enough to launch a new offensive.
