      Shiloh Musings

      The Iron Dome Is Just A "Band-Aid," Not A Solution

      Not for the first time, Israel is being attacked and not only doesn't the world care, but our government has buried its head in the sand relying on photo-ops and blustery announcements.

      Here in Shiloh, I'm still blogging about all sorts of things on Shiloh Musings and me-ander.  How long will Bibi debate the pros and cons about when and if to bomb Iran's nuclear production?  Now he wants Obama's "permission."  If Obama will give it, it'll just be his way to try to rid the world of Israel.  That's how I see it.

      This morning I blogged about the Iron Dome:

      The Iron Dome Is Just A "Band-Aid," Not A Solution

      The Israeli Government has been trying to sedate its citizens about the dangers from the Gazan Arab terrorists who have been attacking southern Israel by bragging about how many missiles have been stopped by the Iron Dome.

      The Iron Dome has made it a bit safer for Israel's south, but it has no effect on Gaza.  It just encourages our enemies to try harder to destroy us.

      The aim of the Arab terrorists, whether from Gaza or any place else, is the destruction of the State of Israel.  They shouldn't be treated like annoyances.  They are serious aggressors.  All of Israel's south and major farmland areas are in their sites.  Beersheva has been hit.

      Why is life going on as usual in the rest of the country?!?  It's outrageous and dangerous!
