Day 237 Swords of Iron – “All Eyes of Rafah””

Chaim starts out the video by introducing the topic of a new phrase that is gaining a lot of traction on social media “all eyes on Rafah.” Chaim says that it’s appropriate for the world to be paying attention to Rafah because it’s a major geostrategic flashpoint, as well as being a hub of terrorism, smuggling, criminality, and violence.

He mentions all the terror tunnels that the IDF has found there, as well as smuggling tunnels running under the border with Egypt. This, he explains, is where Hamas gets all its weapons and ammunition, as well as narcotics that it sells to its own Palestinian population, and many other types of contraband.

Rafah has been the epicenter of all this, and Chaim says that if the world had been paying more attention to these problems earlier, much of what’s happened in the last eight months could have been avoided. If the responsible governments of the world had been giving Israel the support it needed to go into Rafah sooner and choke off these terror tunnels and smuggling tunnels, the war probably would have already been over with Hamas defeated.

Chaim says that when he hears the phrase “all eyes on Rafah” he’s glad to hear about it and he hopes that when people look at Rafah, they’re seeing the same things he’s seeing, including the Israeli hostages who are still being held there, the smuggling of weapons and narcotics, and all the rest of Hamas’ evil activities.

He then asks why no one has any eyes on Iran, which is sponsoring Hamas’ terrorism and supporting anti-Israel activities all over the world, as well as directly threatening other democracies and brutalizing its own people. He also asks why there’s no eyes on Qatar, which is providing a safe haven for Hamas leaders and sponsoring all kinds of malign activities all over the Middle East, as well as sending money to support anti-Israel protests on US university campuses.

So, Chaim says, he thinks the world MUST fix it’s eyes on Rafah, and believe the truth about what they see when they look there.

He next quotes Psalms 68:1-4; Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; As wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly. Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name Yah, and rejoice before Him.

He concludes by counting the Omer for day 38.
