    I’m sure that if it was necessary yamit82 is able to soldier up. Everyone if their life is in danger or one of your children or grandchildren or if you see an injustice being committed you, I , yamit82 or anyone is capable of even killing. What I’m referring to is the art of certain agents capable of the almost impossible. Remember the ladies spies who did seduced the men in power to obtain state secrets during the war and also in peace?
    I’m sure the reason she is henpecking BB is because she needs a good lover. We just need the PM to come to his senses. That’s all.

    He should be retired after so many years living on the edge

    You mean Yamit82 is no longer able to soldier up!!!!!!!!!!!!! Perhaps if we nag him a bit.

  3. @ honeybee:
    Honeybee. this is not about tasking yamit82 with anything. This is about getting an opinion. For a task like this we need some Israeli who has been trained the way the KGB did trained its agents. Capable of infiltrating by being suave and a diligent con man to the lady. If it call for making love to her, so be it. The same as the characters of a John Le Carre spy novel. You have to let yamit82 rest. The guy has done enough in his life. I hope he is enjoying his new puppy. I also pray HaShem keeps him safe from any rockets and any danger. He should be retired after so many years living on the edge. He has enough dealing with the present.
    Be well an pray for our troops. I know you really care. Keep the good humor. At times like this it is a difficult task. You are the life of he forum.

    Everything is fair in war. Consult it with yamit82 What do you think?

    It might be wise to consult Yamit82 before we task him with the project. Unlike the female, the male must be ” pumped” be for he can preform. Trying to be as delicate as this cowgirls can be. Entiendeme amiga.

  6. @ honeybee:
    I was visiting my little bugs.
    I saw we have a new poster Avigail and I like her attitude. What you see is what you get. Since you are our welcoming committee I’m sure you already welcome her on our behalf. I also welcome her. I have to go out before Sabbath.
    HB I have an idea. Since BB is known to be indecisive and his wife henpecks him and tell him what to do. Perhaps we ought to hire a suave stud who would know poetry and the literature she is interested in but perhaps could bring her to see our point of view. He might seduce her and it would be great to get her out of her husband’s way. We are not able to convince him but if we can convince her she might stop being a witch and leave the poor guy alone. A good lover that is what she needs and it might contribute to PEACE in the Middle East.
    Everything is fair in war. Consult it with yamit82 What do you think?

  7. @ mar55:
    Thank you Mar and family,
    In about two hours we will visit our Bet Knesset some 50 meters away. Shabbat evening prayers will include a Prayer for all our soldiers. They are all our children as one. It operates at a bomb shelter underground building. We made into a Bet Knesset and is still available as a bomb shelter since 25 years ago.
    G.d bless one and all

  8. @ mar55:

    Were have you been????????? Missed you very much. Last Yamit82 posted he was and his puppy were both safe. We have a new poster Avigail who is quite a wonderful addition.

  9. @ yamit82:
    Have been praying for your health and safety. I never thought they would send rockets to Dimona. They are trying to get nuked from Israel. Egypt is trying to get in good graces with the US to see their military and financial help restored. Every other arab country hates hamas. Iran trough hamas expect to weaken Israel to attack Israel when they think is the appropriate time. I suppose Israel is not showing everything in their arsenal and are being cautious. When Iran decides to attack (hope not) they will have a big surprise. May Israel live forever.
    I was visiting my grandchildren. By the way, where are Arnold Harris, Bernard Ross and Dove? How about the very wise commentary from Laura? I really miss her.

    @ Avigail:
    Thank you Avigail for the link. Already registered and, I’m making copies of the link to give it to the people in my building. In the Jewish market I might find some people interested.

    I am sending the link to a relative of mine ,by marriage, she loves Israel and the Jewish people. She has a prayer group of Evangelicals and she is also a Cherokee Indian. Go figure. She is also responsible for my return to Judaism.

  11. @ SHmuel HaLevi 2:
    Samuel, please post the name of your kids to pray for them. Remember we must pray as if everything depends on G-d and work as if everything depends on us. Praying for your family give us a little peace. Since I cannot be there I get very antsy. yamit82 has posted some Psalms which are helpful but knowing we are doing something to help even if we are away will give us some inner peace.
    May Hashem bless and protect you and your family and give you the peace you so much need.

  13. @ yamit82:
    I agree with the US President. We must protect the Islamic murderous beasts civilians as much as they protect ours, not one bit less! I say.
    Go Tzahal go! Do not allow anyone to play political games using our great soldiers.
    G.d bless and protect you all.

  14. Dear Mr. Belman. Thank you for your holy work on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people. You are among the blessed.

  15. Netanyahu on Twitter: “Operation Protective Edge will continue until it reaches its goal – restoring quiet to Israel’s citizens for a prolonged period, while inflicting a significant blow to the infrastructures of Hamas and the other terrorist organizations.” Israeli Economy Minister Naftali Bennett: “We had no choice, the tunnel (attack) this morning was the straw that broke the camel’s back.”

    This does NOT sound resolute to DESTROY the enemy FOREVER. The excuses for leaders gave Gazans 5 days to mine the tunnels. My prayers for the brave IFD and Israeli people.
    May God protect you and bring you home safe. And may you be successful in doing what of which the Israeli leaders are reluctant. God be with you and Israel for always.

    Do NOT let this last failed-ceasefire be accepted by Israel when this is done.

    It feels to me that there is a divine here, no one, foe or so-called friend, will be allowed to give any part of Israel away again, ever; no matter how hard they try.

  16. Israel needs to remove Hamas from Gaza.
    You can reassure Hamas will soon cry uncle in order to stop IDF before they are crushed.
    What will it take to wake up the Palestinians to recognize Hamas doesn’t give a damn about them, they are being used.
    Our prayers go out to the gallant men & women of the IDF. G-d be with them.

  18. All political activities by me are on hold. Only our children in uniform are in our prayers.
    G.d bless them all and keep them safe.

  19. @ Avigail:

    Of course we knew that already. Destroying tunnels and rocket stockpiles won’t eliminate Hamas and it will merely lengthen the time until the next round.

    Then again, the IDF has to do a job under a political leadership not interested in the complete destruction of the enemy.

    I pray all the same for the welfare and safety of Israel’s soldiers. May G-d bless them!

  20. Avigail Said:

    Now, since we are here, let’s hope for a Cast Lead II rather than a Amud Annan II

    Say what?????????????????? The plane being shot down keeps Obama, Kerry and Putin out your hair!!!!!!!!!!

  21. @ yamit82:

    The ALMIGHTY has cause dissention and confusion among Israel’s enemy. You said you are in the reserve are you called up? How is your family?

  22. @ yamit82:

    Aims of Israel are not to topple Hamas but to weaken them and their ability to attack Israel.

    We knew that from the beginning, didn’t we?

    Now, since we are here, let’s hope for a Cast Lead II rather than a Amud Annan II

  23. Government stated aims: “that Operation Protective Edge, now in its 10th day, will continue until its goals are reached: restoring quiet for an extended period of time,and delivering a significant blow to Hamas and the other terrorist organizations in Gaza.”

    Aims of Israel are not to topple Hamas but to weaken them and their ability to attack Israel. Accordingly we are partners of Hamas. We need them and they need us, according to the thinking of BB and company.

    Don’t expect much from this round any more than the last two.

  24. @ honeybee:

    Its so beautiful and peaceful here I feel guilty.

    Don’t. It’s quite beautiful and peaceful here too, and if the political echelon let the IDF do its job, it will remain so.

  25. Sorry for the double post, guys, but it’s for a good cause:

    Pray for an IDF soldier. Please sign up:

    You’ll be given the name of a soldier for whom to pray. You can make good deeds in his name while he’s busy defending the People of Israel.

    Everything is explained on their page.

  26. yamit82 Said:

    protect civilians

    I hope Obama means Israeli civilians, although I doubt it. Its so beautiful and peaceful here I feel guilty.

  27. Blessing for the IDF:

    He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Forces, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G-d, from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

    May the Almighty cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them.

    May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighters from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

    May He lead our enemies under our soldiers’ sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory.

    And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is the Lord your G-d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

    Amen VeAmen!

    Egypt pans Hamas, Qatar, Turkey for ceasefire failure

    Egypt launches an unprecedented assault on Hamas, blaming the Islamist group, Qatar and Turkey for acting to scuttle Cairo’s ceasefire proposal.

    Egyptian Foreign Minister Samah Shukri says the Egyptian proposal sought to safeguard the rights of the Palestinian people.

    Egypt even claims that Hamas could have saved the lives of hundreds of Palestinians had it accepted the Egyptian proposal. 🙂

    – Avi Issacharoff

  29. Godspeed to Israel. (Wish I knew an appropriate Hebrew or Yiddish phrase). May the operation enjoy complete success and be accomplished with minimal casualties.
