Cruel, wicked, cowardly "leadership" that cares more about world opinion than Jewish life and that adheres to a warped humanistic idea of morality.
This is an example of the kind of people (and thinking) that has brought us to this terrible state:
Former IDF Gaza Division Commander Brigadier-General (retired) Chico Tamir ... feels “we must lower our expectations regarding the outcome of this operation” because if ground forces are sent in, “the amount of force needed [to protect soldiers] will exceed all proportions and therefore the gain by sending in ground forces is minimal in my opinion”.
Tamir feels that the mission as it is may buy quiet for a period of time but “Hamas measures the blow in the number of killed and this operation will not buy us years of quiet to my sorrow. For that to happen, the use of force would have to be beyond what we would view as acceptable”.
He basically feels it is unrealistic to believe when this operation ends Hamas is going to fold up and go away.
And then there's this:
"The IDF reports the Kerem Shalom Crossing will operate for a number of hours on Sunday to permit deliveries of food and humanitarian supplies to Gaza."
And also this:
Prime Minister Netanyahu today spoke with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas. During his conversation with German Chancellor Merkel, the Prime Minister said that no country in the world would agree to a situation in which its population lives under a constant missile threat.
Yesterday (Friday, 2 Kislev), Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke with US President Barack Obama for the second time since the start of Operation Pillar of Defense and expressed his appreciation for the US position regarding Israel’s right to defend itself. The Prime Minister also thanked him for the American assistance in purchasing Iron Dome batteries.
Prime Minister Netanyahu is expected to speak with other world leaders this evening and in the coming days.
No other country would feel the need to justify the obvious or seek approval for it either.
The current "leadership" does not have what it takes to finish this job. Only one can - Hashem's anointed - Ben David. And he will only make his appearance when the Jewish people have had enough to understand what needs to be done and are willing to follow such a leader.
I can't help but wonder how much shockingly worse it has to get before that day arrives.
Tomer Devorah wants to publicly offer grateful thanks to HKB"H for His care and protection and for all the miracles He has performed for us that the destruction of Jewish lives and property has not been greater.
