"We are not war hungry, but we shall not, I repeat shall not, allow a situation where our towns, villages and civilians are constantly targeted by Hamas." (Ehud Barak - today)
Here are 2 blogs and one charity to keep you connected with our battle in Gaza. From what I can read between the lines, we are doing well, and Hamas are pretty desperate. Let's hope that things continue that way.
I have found the the Muqata blog has excellent coverage of the Matzav. I already pointed out Oleh Girl. Here is another blog. It is from sderot by Yakira Weisel, an 18 year old Sherut Leumi volunteer (National Service.) The work that these young women do at a pretty young age is unbelievable. Last week Yakira brought her group of kids from Sderot to get out of the fighting and raised the funds to take them bowling and to the zoo in Jerusalem. Read her blog here (link).
Here is an amazing charity. See their work here. Standing Together, http://www.stogether.org/ is collecting warm socks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deoderant, fleece ski masks, hot cups, bottled drinks, packaged cookies and cakes to bring to our soldiers coming in and out of Gaza. . You can also help by sponsoring online an $18 package for a chayal containing long underwear, hats, and socks. To donate funds to puchase these things please go to www.stogether.org/gaza Thanks so much and Tizku L'mitzvot.
Keep in touch!
