Same Old, Same Old

It may be the new Jewish year, but in Israel a lot of things are repeating themselves.

Our elite troops are killing the terrorists before they kill us, by going into places like Nablus and hunting them down there. Thank G-d for our brave soldiers, both the ones working in intelligence and the ones doing the shooting.

While the newspapers and the government are dealing with the rampant corruption scandals, the Kassam rockets are still falling on southern towns. Two fell in Sderot, and it was just by luck that only one woman (an Israeli soldier) was lightly hurt.

Sderot mayor Eli Moyal is understandably both frustrated and cynical. He predicts that the miracles will run out one day, and only then the politicians will show up for the usual blah-blah-blah.

He also says that financial help that was promised to the south has been suddenly cancelled.

In addition, a new survey shows that 63% of Palestinians think they should emulate Hizballah by shooting rockets into Israeli towns and cities. The tools may be a bit different, but the motivation - kill the Jews, is still the same.

But, not to worry folks. We settlers are also involved in the "same old, same old" too. We're having more babies (I can't tell you how many bris's I have attended just this summer alone!), marrying off kids (seven new married couples in our settlement in the past few months) and welcoming new families - who are moving into the caravans vacated by families moving into their permanent homes.

Not to mention the Torah learning, chessed (acts of lovingkindness) projects, and extra prayers layered into our day-to-day life. Baruch Hashem some things don't change.

63% of palestinians want to emulate hezbullah? there's a surprise, but i guess you're right, some things don't change.
i'm just glad that in spite of all the bad, our people are still pushing on, having children, getting married, learning...that's how we've survived as a nation even when dispersed, and that's how we'll survive now, and how we'll continue to survive.
and mazel tov to all of the new couples, parents, homeowners....
