Gaza War

Reader comment on item: Israel's War on Hamas: A Dozen Thoughts

Submitted by Dannel R. Ballesteros (United States), Jan 1, 2009 at 22:10

Israel has a right to defend itself notwithstanding what the world thinks! I am puzzled that Israel has waited this long to retaliate against Hamas. I am disappointed at the lack of will of the present leadership of its government. God has defended its chosen people in the past except when Israel has sinned or disobeyed God. When Israel started to give up its land "for peace" it exceeded its authority because the land belongs to God and was an inheritance. I guess the Israelits think they can do it all by themselves and exclude God in this dynamic. Israel could not have won the 1967 war without Divine Intervention. I do pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Shalom,

Dan
