Doing What We Can

Wednesday, 7 January 2009

When we say something, we really mean it. So when the Israeli government says that it is targeting Hamas terrorists and not the people of Gaza, it isn’t lying. Not only did Israel cease its operations for three hours in order to allow the citizens of Gaza a safe environment in which to stock up on supplies, but it plans on doing this on a daily basis. It also has continued to supply Gaza with 70% of its electricity during this operation. And as always, Israel has provided safe passage to its medical facilities AND top-rate medical care to acute Palestinian patients. Of course, Hamas is preventing the Gazans from accessing this care much of the time and is insisting on sending them to Egypt.

Who fights a war like this? Who else takes deliberate actions to ease the plight (when and where they are able) of the civilian population in the area the army is targeting?

For ongoing reports from around the web, you must head over to Jack. How he finds time to sleep is beyond me as he puts together posts several times each day.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and those who love her.
