Gaza A Place Devoid Of Innocence!

Five days have passed since Arabs from Gaza launched the most deadly terror attack against the Jewish State in Israel’s history. The current death toll stands at more than 1,200 Jewish men, women and children of all ages slaughtered at the hands of Arab nationalists intent on murdering every Jew they came in contact with.

The media and government spokesman would have you believe that these killers are somehow a separate entity from the civilian population of Gaza. Nothing could be further from the truth. These beasts are the fathers, brothers and sons of the civilian population. Their mothers and sisters are proud of their men’s vicious assault on little children, decapitating them wholesale. These innocent civilians voted in mass for Hamas and held them close to their hearts. Israel has seen the entire scope of the gruesome horrors, in all their ghastliness and their cruelty, on their television screens and social media. They have witnessed Jewish communities laid waste, their people completely erased from the Jewish family. Among the victims, we see parents, siblings, children, and the unborn, who will never see the light of day.

The Arab atrocities were planned and executed with deceit and methodical precision, unparalleled in the history of the restored Jewish State. Stunned and aggrieved, we search for answers. Why? How can this have happened? The answer lies in the nature of Gaza’s people, every single one of them. There are no innocents to be found there. Gaza is a place devoid of innocence.

If we want to prevent a recurrence of the bloody situation we tragically find ourselves in. Israel will need to show no mercy to the people of Gaza and destroy the enemy without exception.

We need to strengthen the heart of our nation to awaken us from the moral slumber that has confused our understanding of the evil amongst us. We must not allow our leaders to settle on a political outcome when only a devastating military solution can rescue us from revisiting the horrors of October 7, 2023.

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
