If this isn’t war what is it?

July 9, 2014

It became exciting around our Moshav close to Jerusalem last night. One rocket landed within a quarter mile of our house two others close enough to cause a very loud boom.  The sirens went off a few times telling everyone to seek cover.  The IDF struck 160 targets in Gaza last night. Tel Aviv had several rockets taken out by the Iron Dome anti rocket system too.  Rockets reached as far north from Gaza as Hadera and near Haifa.

Hamas now says every Israeli is a legitimate target (what’s new there).  Today Connie and I have a meeting in Jerusalem –  a 45 minute drive away -and we must pass nearby several Arab neighbourhoods – we don’t know how they are reacting or if they have started shooting and throwing rocks again.  But we do know Hamas is calling on all Arabs to join in the fight against the Jews.

Arabs tried to infiltrate Tel Aviv by sea last night but were killed on the beaches.  With another 40,000 reservists being called up and tanks lined up on the Gaza border it is obvious to me that a ground invasion is in the making in the next day or two.

Here in Israel, and for sure in southern Israel, we have had way more than enough and want our Government to take care of Hamas completely this time, not just hurt them a little.  Everyone is wondering if Hezbollah in southern Lebanon will join in the fight. Many are saying they are too busy fighting in Syria and Iraq. We will soon find out.

Over the past few days there have been rockets fired out of south Syria into the Golan Heights, each time the IDF has responded with heavy artillery fire on their positions.

In the meantime the European Jews are living under direct threat from the growing anti-Semitism that is spreading like wildfire as Islam tightens its grip on all of Europe.

We are in the process of preparing boats for rescue – for if this war here in Israel hits our only international airport we will be forced into action.

We need so many things I hardly know were to begin, but the one word most don’t want to hear is money.  With that we can take care of most of our needs for the boats and logistics needed.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and al the IDF soldiers.  Pray for this ministry and your part in it.

Shalom, Jerry Golden
