Day 275  – Courage


Chaim begins the video by pointing out a large number of rocket strikes into northern Israel from Lebanese territory over the past 24 hours. The rockets are being fired by the Iranian-backed Shi’ite terror militia Hezbollah, which is illegally occupying southern Lebanon and breaking numerous international laws by firing weapons into Israel.

He rhetorically asks what might happen in the North. There are a few possibilities, from a deal being reached that will allow for the tensions to cool and circumstances to return to some kind of normalcy, but there might also be a full-scale war. Between these two book ends there are many interim possibilities.

But Chaim says there’s a larger issue, and that is the intensifying extremism and violence all over the world, not just here in Israel. He cites as an example a terrorist attack that occurred recently in Nigeria where an Islamist terror group called Boko Haram attacked a wedding, a hospital and a funeral with explosive charges. At the wedding, a woman with a baby strapped to her back set off a suicide vest, killing herself, her child, and several other people.

Chaim says that this kind of barbarism and chaos are not going to be allowed to engulf the free world.

He also mentions US Representative Rashida Talib for her criticism of a recent vote in the House of Representatives which declared that the US will not use the inflated numbers of civilian casualties reported by Hamas in Gaza. Apparently she thinks that Hamas’s lies and deceit should be taken at face value.

He says that Israel is all for co-existence and free speech and other liberal values, but there has to be a point where outright lies, deceit and gaslighting are not allowed.

Chaim also cites a report from northern Israel that civilian hospitals are preparing to operate in underground parking garages and other spaces that will give some shelter from the massive barrages of rockets and missiles expected to fall on Israeli cities in the event of war with Hezbollah.

He says that he is telling his own soldiers in his unit that now is not the time for fear but the time for courage. In this context he quotes Joshua 1:11; “Pass through the camp and command the people, saying, ‘Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you will cross over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you to possess.’ ”

He concludes by encouraging Jews around the world to not be afraid, but rather to take this moment to make Aliyah to their ancestral homeland, because God is with them and will watch over and protect them.
