Although I don't post here all that frequently, I do on Shiloh Musings and me-ander. Here's what I think of the weak dollar, and read my ongoing saga about bringing my 89 year old father to live with us.
All those years successive Israeli Governments ignored the missile attacks against it from Arabs in Gaza and Lebanon have increased the danger. The latest military intelligence is that Arabs in Gaza, (and possibly Lebanon, too), have rocket launchers which can reach Tel Aviv.
Each time a Kassam is launched by the Arab terrorists at Israel, they are practicing. This isn't some innocent baseball pitching. They are out to destroy us and they're not too shy to say so. We just have to listen. We have to hear what they are saying and not what we want them to say.
The Israeli politicians, urged by its media and foreign busybodies, like Obama, Clinton (both,) Blair, Sarkozy etc refuse to accept the truth. No concessions, gestures, gifts of Land etc will placate the Arabs.
They want us dead and gone. Our only defense is to refuse to obey foreign advice. We must be strong and only do what's best for us. The world will rally around or look for someone else to bully.
