What Will The World Say When We Die?
We all know how apesh*t the world went when the IDF fired, by mistake, and killed Palestinian civilians in Beit Hanoun while targeting terrorists. What will the reaction be to a Jewish woman killed by Kassam rockets deliberately aimed at civilians?
Enraged? Hysterical? Upset? Concerned?
I doubt it.
Come on world, prove me wrong.
Update: 10:00am Israel time: Another barrage of rockets fell in Sderot. A psychologist who works there came on to IDF radio to report that there is a severe shortage of psychologists to help with the trauma that everyone is experiencing. The shortage is not just for today's short term need - but is long term also. She says that professionals are afraid to go to Sderot to work because of the security situation. She is describing some of the difficulties - there are babies whose first words are "BOOM". There are children who can't concentrate in school. There are adults who are experiencing marital problems due to the stress.
These are some of the things that need to be considered when deciding whether to go into Gaza again. Our people are in danger - not only physically.
Update 5:30 pm Israel time: More rockets fall near Ashkelon as Fatima Slutzker, the woman killed this morning, was laid to rest.
