Jews from all over the world have come to Jerusalem to pray for the safety of Israel during the increased terror attacks of the past several days. Over the past few days Israel has been facing an increased number of missile attacks by the Islamic terrorists in Gaza. Hundreds of missiles and mortars have been fired at the Israeli towns and cities that border with Gaza. The terrorists have also fired several long-distance missiles with larger warheads deeper into Israel.
It is often said that Israel has the right to defend itself against terrorism. However, this isn’t really true. To be clear, Israel doesn’t have ‘the right to defend itself’ but rather it has ‘the obligation to defend itself.’ In addition to the necessary military response by the Israeli Defense Forces, the nation and the Jewish People have turned to Jerusalem. The capital city of Jerusalem is not only the political capital of the country; it is the spiritual capital of the entire Jewish People around the world for thousands of years. It is the focal point of Jewish prayer wherever the Jewish person is in the world. Fittingly then, the Jewish People face Jerusalem, envision Jerusalem and physically come to Jerusalem to pray for the safety of our country and people. This is precisely what the Jewish People have done for thousands of years and continue to do until today. We pray for our civilians who are under fire. And we pray for our dear soldiers who are protecting us!
We look forward to a true peace in the region, where the enemy and the world finally recognize the TRUTH about Jerusalem and Israel. A time when everyone recognizes that the past, present and future must be based in facts, justice and security. Please help us by SHARING the TRUTH about Jerusalem!
