Here We Go Again. Blood and more Blood.

Here we go again, one killed and seven wounded in an Arab ramming attack last Friday night in Tel Aviv. In another attack, two sisters, Rina and Maia Dee, were slaughtered in a shooting incident in the Jordan Valley while their mother is in critical condition from the shooting attack. The perpetrator is still at large.

In addition to these monstrous crimes, Northern Israel found itself under a rocket barrage from Lebanon and Syria, also in the south from Gaza, and the Temple Mount is the centre of Arab rioting.

While Turkeys President Recep Tayyip Erdogan phoned Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi on Friday to tell him “the Islamic world should be united against Israel’s attacks in Palestine.”

All this on one Friday in the Jewish State. Israel’s leader’s response to these attacks on its citizens and tourists is the same old warn-out threats of retaliation as usual too little too late.

Israel’s response only invites more deadly attacks on its people. What is needed is massive retaliation across the board—leaving no stone unturned in pursuing its enemies, from the footsoldier to the most senior leaders of the fake Palestinians. Root and Branch must be eliminated if the State is serious about defending its people, no matter the cost. All diplomatic gestures are superfluous and only weaken the Nation’s resolve. Israel must engage its enemies pre-emptively regardless of the damage to its relations with the International community. We cannot be concerned with what the non-Jews say, but we must be concerned with what the Jewish State does in protecting its people and safeguarding its Independent sovereignty. Till then, there will be blood and more blood in Israel’s streets, and there will be tears and more tears in Israel’s homes.

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)
