A tragic day -

I am sitting here and writing my next post and the news flashes across my screen - 15 soldiers killed, 25 wounded, 6 of whom critically. There does not seem to be an end to the tragedy and pain in our land. Let us hope that our leaders will have the inspiration to do the right thing and make sure this never happens again.

טו סִלָּה כָל-אַבִּירַי אֲדֹנָי בְּקִרְבִּי, קָרָא עָלַי מוֹעֵד לִשְׁבֹּר בַּחוּרָי; גַּת דָּרַךְ אֲדֹנָי, לִבְתוּלַת בַּת-יְהוּדָה.
15 The Lord hath set at nought all my mighty men in the midst of me; He hath called a solemn assembly against me to crush my young men; the Lord hath trodden as in a winepress the virgin the daughter of Judah.'

    I fear not. It is the political leadership, Peretz and Olmert that is the main source of the problem. I have a series of posts about the leadership of Israel the war which I think are worthwhile reading:
