Day 206 Swords of Iron – “At what Cost?”

Chaim starts out the video by saying that the big question on everyone’s mind is about what will happen next with the talks between Israel and Hamas being carried out in Cairo, with mediation by Qatar and the US.

There are many other developments in the process, including the construction of a temporary port in Gaza City to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid, the possibility of a normalization agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia in return for a cease-fire, and the formation of a Palestinian State which several European governments would recognize. There’s some other developments up in the air and negotiations are ongoing and we all have to wait and see where this is all going. He says that Israel would love to have normalization with Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and the rest of the Moslem countries, but he asks “at what cost” will that take place?

Meanwhile, on the northern border, Hezbollah continues firing rockets and other weapons into Israel and persecuting the Christian population of Lebanon. No one seems very interested in discussing either of these issues. But Yoav Gallant, the Israeli Defense Minister, has said that as many as half of Hezbollah’s command structure in southern Lebenon has been eliminated in this war.

However, there is still a huge threat from Hezbollah because they have over 150,000 rockets they can fire into Israel and they also have a network of underground tunnels which they can use against Israel in any conflict.

Chaim then reminds his viewers that this is the last day of Passover, the festival in which we remember that the Children of Israel were brought out of captivity in Egypt. Chaim quotes Exodus 15:13; You in Your mercy have led forth the people whom You have redeemed; You have guided them in Your strength to Your holy habitation.

Chaim says that this process of Aliyah is continuing and the Aliyah Return Center is blessed to be part of it.

He concludes by saying that we should continue praying for the hostages by name and continuing to count the Omer and expecting God to do miracles just He did in that first Passover and that first Pentacost.
