Day 194 Swords of Iron- “Girls in Yahlom?”

Chaim begins the video by reminding his viewers that Aliyah Day is coming up, but here in Israel we’re fighting for our lives as we get attacked on 7 different fronts. He says that the Shi’tes of Iran and Hezbollah have an eschatological, end times worldview that says redemption will only come when they destroy Israel and America.

Chaim says there’s a lot of discussion online and elsewhere about what Israel should do, or not do, to respond to the Iranian attack last Sunday morning. It is definitely a miracle that this coalition came together, including Arab countries, to repel the attack.

Now there are all kinds of ways that Israel could respond and there are loud voices coming from all over the place giving their opinions about what the next step should be. Iran’s attack was definitely not just for show. They fired enough missiles at Israel to do a tremendous amount of damage, and Chaim says that we’re here to fulfill the promises of the Bible, not be destroyed by Persia.

He then switches his focus to the Ya’alom combat engineers unit he’s part of in the IDF, which just welcomed its first female recruits.

He says this is happening amidst an incredible narrative flow surrounding this attack. Many are condemning Iran but some are also defending Iran, saying that the missile attack was a legitimate act of self-defense following Israel’s targeting of IRGC Generals in a building near a diplomatic compound in Syria. Chaim says it’s very difficult to understand why anyone objects to Israel making this strike on these IRGC Generals who were meeting in Damascus with local terrorists to coordinate the transfer of weapons to use against Israel.

He also says that it’s time to start praying for Israeli leaders by name. He names Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as examples.

He says that as we approach Passover, it’s a time to be cleansed in our hearts to welcome in a new season.

He also reminds the viewers of the upcoming online Passover event at the Aliyah Return Center and he concludes by reading Exodus 15:2; The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.
