Israel on the Edge

Driving home tonight from Jerusalem, it was hard to ignore a whole slew of tanks being transported...due South. Gaza Strip Direction.

Driving home through the "security wall", the Shomron roads had a very sad look to them. Cars flew past very quickly, anticipating shooting that thank G-d didn't come. The bus shelters are all empty...the hitchikers are gone, or at least waiting for rides within settlements.

Everyone is waiting for the inevitable.

First was Sunday's attack, and the IDF solider's kidnapping.

Today news is that a 18 year old from Itamar is also being held hostage.

With news reports chasing each other, t.There are 2 other unsubstantiated reports tonight of a kidnapping near Petzael in the Jordan Valley, and another kidnapping between Kedumim and Yitzhar near the Arab village of "Tel."

Personally, with zero knowledge of what the IDF has planned, I predict there will be an attempted rescue mission this evening by an IDF elite unit near Rafiach...to release captured IDF soldier Gilad ben Aviva.

The odds aren't that great...and I pray for a successful outcome.

We're on the edge.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

Yeah, the husband and I were driving up north on Kvish Sesh and also saw a bunch of trucks carrying tanks heading south. We also had tank carrying trucks going up north to, we assume, pick up some more tanks. I hope this isn't for show, and we're actually going to go all the way with this. Doing things half-a$$ed has never worked.
