“We will not let Hamas fire on Israeli civilians and we have the capabilities to stop them.”
This is a promise from IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi. His reassurance comes after weeks of rockets and mortar fire into Israel from the Gaza-strip.
“The attempts at delegitimizing Israel and the IDF are growing stronger. But we have a moral army which operates in the most professional and ethical ways.” Ashkenazi noted.
“We face the threat of rockets and missiles fired from urban areas and nature reserves. We will not let Hamas fire on Israeli civilians and we have the capabilities to stop them.”
Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi also gave a warning to Iran, and those who wants to ban Jews from living in Judea and Samaria.
“Iran is growing stronger, as are Lebanon and Hamas. We also have much work to do in the Judea and Samaria region [West Bank]. The IDF, as the guarding shield of Israel, will stand between the enemy and the State of Israel….We must continue fighting for our right to live here.”

The state of Israel do commit mistakes, just like all of us. But the Jewish homeland still needs our support. The men and woman who fight in the arm forces of Israel do not only fight for the Jewish people. They fight for all of us. Israel is the frontier for all people who love freedom and democracy.
I support the IDF. Please do the same.
