Today Gaza, Tomorrow Jerusalem

Dear Pipes

I am a minister of the gospel and receive your articles regularly for the last few years.
There seems to be strong opposition to the gaza withdrawal for reasons we are all aware of. My view is, the Gaza Strip does not belong to the Jews. I say this because in the Bible, that strip of real estate was not in possession of the Jews even at the height of King David's reign. On the map of Israel during the Empire of David and Solomon, that piece of land was described as under the Philistia.

Another thought is that Israel needs to consolidate herself. The IDF should not be overstretched because I believe the days ahead for Israel is going to be very very tough. The Russians will be coming down to attack her in the coming days in fullfilment of Ezekiel 38 & 39.
Due to the two reasons I mentioned, I will be praying that the withdrawal will be completed with no blood shed.
