Jihad vs. Emuna: Battle Scorecard

12:01 AM, Thursday - Ashdod

Earlier this evening, 2 missile barrages from Gaza hit Ashdod. Out of the 12 that were fired at us, 9 were intercepted, 2 landed in open areas outside city limits, and one landed on a school not far from us. The explosion was tremendous. Thank G-d no one was hurt, but no one can estimate the emotional damage done to our little children who were fast asleep, then get dragged from their beds only to be further awakened by these blood-curdling explosions. To all those who preach restraint, let them live through this with their own children in their own home town and then preach restraint...

The above score card looks good: 9-2-1 (9 intercepted, 2 landings that missed, 1 landing that hit). But, this is not a game. The score could be 100-1, but every single missile is deadly with a capital D.

How can Hamas keep firing after the thousands of IAF bomb runs? The answer is simple - they fire from heavily populated neighborhoods using human shields. They want Israel to kill their civilians so that they can yell "genocide". They are guilty of genocide, for those beasts care nothing about their own blood. They're happy to kill their mother if they can kill a Jew at the same time.

This is the Galut Yishmael, the cruel Ishmaelite suicide-bomber exile that the Gaon of Vilna and Rabbi Chaim Vital, both of sacred memory, foresaw.

Meanwhile, the Israeli government has agreed to the UN's request for a 6-hour humanitarian ceasefire between 10AM-4PM local time today (Thursday). I doubt that Hamas will honor it, for they don't care if their people starve. Egyptian TV has done a special on the Hamas leaders underground, who just keep getting fatter and richer while the miserable Gazan populace suffers. Like so many other tyrants, they convince the downtrodden population that their problem is the Jews, while the ultra-corrupt Hamas leaders Meshal and Haniya have billions in Swiss Banks.

So what are we doing? How does one fight the evil of Ishmael? It's rooted in a spiritual battle: his dark-side suicide faith against our light-unto-the world-emuna. That's why we're manning our battle stations day and night to spread emuna. Emuna will defeat Hamas and Ishmael. Emuna Outreach, the spearhead of Rabbi Shalom Arush's Chut Shel Chesed Yeshiva, has an emuna SimchaMobile spreading drinks, treats and emuna books and CDs up and down the Gaza border. We need to put more SimchaMobiles on the road in the south of Israel, until there's no tank or bomb shelter without emuna books and CDs. Many of you wrote glowing emails about how the SimchaMobile warmed your heart. Our guys are doing literally under-fire. Why such dedication? It's the only way to win the far. We don't mind risking our lives for what we believe in, especially since our "Commander" - Rav Shalom Arush - bestows his blessing on each of us. But we need your support. Your donation helps strengthen Israel's soldiers and civilians under fire. Your assistance in spreading emuna wins wars. Please donate with an open heart to Emuna Outreach - you can do so by clicking the "Donate" button on the top left-hand toolbar of this site. This is a tremendous mitzva and a direct contribution to the war effort and to the full redemption of our people. Thanks and G-d bless!

Confederalism 2 Virtual overlapping states Palestine & Israel that completely share the same nice country Palestine, each individual @ age 16 chooses His/Her State Israel or Palestine and becomes able to vote and support His/Her respective Government and Both Governments make it Good for all citizens, poor & middle & upperclass by implementing a FairTax ??% Sales tax as only tax on the buying of all goods & services including banking services, that tax income supports a unconditional Basic Income of € 14,000/y & those who Hire people for jobs pay at least the MinimumWage € 10/h then all citizens of both Governments that all share the same country are happy and terror and war becomes a thing of the past and Israel & Palestine as one shared country with 2 virtual states functions as a Social Liberal model for the world.

Hamas and Haman are the same. just a letter off. And just like in the Purim story, we need unity and prayer so we can be successful at getting rid of the terrorists.

There is a way that was proposed at the very beginning of Israel of their first entry in Canaan. Am Israel was responsible for 613 Biblical Commandments. Those who wished to stay were required to keep the renewed 7 Noahide laws. If the Ishmaelim wish to remain they will understand that they must do these laws in order to remain in Israel.


Hamas is only able to furrow their way underground because our Erev Rav Republic provides electricity to their leaders who are burrowed deep underground. What type of Govt. goes to war and provides electricity to the enemy, making it more difficult to win the war??????

Lazer, you posted a comment from Lyndon RaRouche, vicious anti-Semite.
