“We must back IDF soldiers. If you start apologizing for combat errors, where will it end?

These are the words of Eliezer Marom. He is retired Vice Admiral, and was the head of the Israeli Navy from 2008 to 2011.

Marom has the commanding officer of the 2010 raid on the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara, who tried to break the Israeli Naval blockage of Gaza.  He told Ynet he was against the Israeli apology.

“We must back IDF soldiers. If you start apologizing for combat errors, where will it end? An IDF soldier must be backed”.

 “I ask myself how this may affect the soldiers,” Marom added, that’s what bothers me.”

“I might be joining politics soon,” the former commander admitted, noting that he was aware of “the prime minister’s right to make such a decision – to sacrifice support for the soldiers in order to advance national interests that mean nothing.”

My comment:

Benjamin Netanyahu is a former Lieutenant Colonel of the IDF.

I wonder what Netanyahu would have felt, if the Generals had not backed his defense of his soldiers under attacks on the battlefield?

Turkey sponsored terrorists on board Mavi Marmara.

Haven Netanyahu changed hos mind, denying the Israeli Navy’s right to inspect and board “aid ships” sailing to Gaza?

Obama should have backed the IDF against the non sense talk of the Prime Minister of Turkey.

But Obama is not interested in a strong Israel.

The semi-Muslim in the White House share the visions and desires of the “Palestinians”. He wants to see the IDF in chaos, failing to protect Israel form Islamic attacks.

Muslim will do the rather opposite, of what Western media reports. When Israel shows military weakness, the Jewish people will not face “Peace”, but rather more attacks.  More rockets, more deaths of Israeli children.  Arabs will feel the end of the Zionist state is near.

But God of the Bible is watching. He is faithful to His Words and promises.

  Isaiah 30:29

And you will sing as on the night you celebrate a holy festival; your hearts will rejoice as when people playing pipes go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel.

Jeremiah 31:3

The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlastinglove; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

Luke 1:33

and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”

Now, Benjamin Netanyahu must issue another apology. He needs to tell the soldiers that defended Israel under attack from Turkey, he is sorry for letting them down.  Netanyahu must also promise that He will never make such a mistake ever again.

Netanyahu have endorsed Islamic piracy at the high seas. I hope and pray Netanyahu will call Obama and express regret for giving an apology to Turkey, where there was absolutely no need to do so.

God of Israel will bless all who speak the truth in love. Israel do not need no other protection, than that of the Yeshua the Messiah.  He will bless those who tell the truth, and seek Him. Amen.
