Jerusalem - The Israeli army says a rocket has reached the southern outskirts of Tel Aviv, by far the farthest strike by Gaza militants in two days of fighting.

The military said the rocket landed in Rishon Lezion, a city just south of Tel Aviv located in heavily populated central Israel.

The rocket landed in an open area and caused no damage or injuries. Nonetheless, it illustrated the growing capabilities of Gaza militants.

The Israeli military launched an offensive on Wednesday, in large part to take out rocket launchers.

Israel’s military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, says the air operation has delivered a “strong blow” to militants’ launching sites.

The great wisdom I've always heard is that the yeshiva bochrim do an equally important - if not more important - job of defending the country.
I'm hearing about, and seeing, the call up of soldiers. I'm waiting to see our rabbinic leaders call for a strengthening of learning, or asking bochrim to learn 18 hours a day. That's what the soldiers are putting in.
Maybe they're waiting for sightings in Bnei Brak before they act.

As there are no military targets in the immediate vicinity of Rishon L'Tzion, a functioning adult would conclude that the purpose of targeting that area was to terrorize the civilian population. It's time for the IDF to return the favor with a few well placed bombs that disconnect Gaza from its power grid, and plunge its civilian population back into the darkness they deserve for permitting the Chablanim to operate without any limits on their activities. Let them also enjoy the terror of weeks - without electricity.

Imagine a country conducting a world-wide search for the best military general they can find. For three years, they search the military, the schools, everywhere one can imagine.
Then, once they find him, they won't listen to him!
All this is happening because the Israeli govt. and people didn't listen to the boss, the best general in the world..and a sagacious and kind person...'The Lubavitcher Rebbe!'
How man of Israel's prime ministers visited him but wouldn't listen?
'The Rebbe, MH"M' was against clearing out Gaza, against 'The Bar-Lev Line, ' against giving even talking about 'giving away' any part of 'The Holy Land.'
Wake up 'Yidden!'

Maybe a place to start is to avoid the sarcasm and putting-down of sectors of klal yisrael.
I'm not asking you to actually DO anything positive for the good of other Jews, but maybe just shev v'al taaseh.
When the danger is over, you can go back to belittling gedolim and lomdei Torah

I'm not saying that you're not right, but since you're coming to conclusions why this is happening, how about that this is happening for not listening to the big general the Satmar Rebbe, who said that the Torah forbids us from having our own land and own army before Mashiach comes? Could be for your reason, could be for my reason, or could be for any other reason. The main thing is, when it comes to an eis tzuru, that everybody should look into himself and see what he can do to improve, how to chessed with others and do teshuva because the Geulah is almost here.
I just heard that the Shomer Emunim rebbe a week before he past away, he said that there will be a big war coming soon. Also I just heard that they just found a letter from the "Baba Solly that in Kislev תשע"ג there will be a big war in Eretz Yisruel, and the attum bomb will ch"v be thrown on Israel and it will stay in the air and after that Mushiach will come. (can't verify the authenticy of this), but he will definatly come in the near future, so why not beleive it
ונזכה ונחי' ונירש טובה וברכה לשני ימות המשיח ולחיי העולם הבא
The only thing in our hands now to do is to be mispollel and hope for the best

Lets all hope and pray that no Jewish lives should get killed or injured c'v.Nebach three people were already killed.
Israel has no choice it must defend themselves but its time for torah observant Jews to open their eyes.Over sixty years and a day doesn't pass without worrying what their enemies will do next.Look at those frightening pictures how people run for cover and all this is happening in a state which is suppose to be a safe heaven for Jews.
Every yom tov we say "Umipnei chatoeinu golinu meiartzeinu" that is the only reason we were sent into exile and not becuase we had a weak army.You can not go against Hashgacha Pratis uprising against hashem c'v.Im hashem lo yishmor ir shav shaked shomer.

Even the little bit of sense that your comment may have made. And stress little bit. Once you write MHM no one will take anything you say seriously. The Rebbe A"H passed away over 18 years ago and there zero reason to belive that he is Mashiach and every reason to belive he is not, except to a delusional person. It is a desecration to his name to speak such foolishness.
