Israel must learn from Yom Kippur war

“We can count only on ourselves and build an army that will deter any enemy,”

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon tell the World that Israel can do it alone.
Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon tell the World that Israel can look after its own safety and security.

There are the words of Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon.

“In the fog that is covering the Middle East, we must realize that we can count only on ourselves and build an army that will deter any enemy,” Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Wednesday after Russia reportedly gave the United States its plan for placing Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal under international control.

Speaking at a memorial ceremony for fallen Armored Corps soldiers in Latrun, Ya’alon said: “We must keep in mind that our greatest enemy is arrogance, haughtiness and oppression of thought. We mustn’t follow our desires blindly after the warning signals that flickered from the Yom Kippur War.”

During the war in 1973, Ya’alon served as a first sergeant in a paratroopers’ unit that fought on the Sinai front. He joined the reserve forces with the outbreak of the war, passed the officers’ course and went on to become IDF chief of staff.

My comment:

The first lesson from the Yom Kippur war, is that Arabs can never be trusted. The attack to break the neck of Israel was launched on the holiest day of Judaism.

The second lesson from the Yom Kippur war, is that Israel should rely on their God.  If there was no active and living God of the Bible, Israel would not have survived this attack.

Today, Israel is facing a global force of antisemitism . All nations wants a two-state solution, and support “Palestinianism”.  All nations also support that Jerusalem must be devised, and East Jerusalem to be handed over to Islamic occupation.

Who can revoke all this?

Only a God that will take His enemies into Zion, hold them accountable, and judge them according to the Word of God.

  1. brother Ivar, maybe by “Arabs can never be trusted” you mean the Arab nation-states, but not individual Arabs? I hope so, b/c there are wonderful Arabs in the world, including Bible-believing evangelical Arabs. Such brothers like Mosab Hassan Yousef could benefit from our love given the added persecution they endure for their faith.

  2. Ivar, I hope by your saying “Arabs can never be trusted” you mean the Arab nation-states, not individual Arabs. Bible-believing evangelical Arabs have enough persecution and hate to deal with for their faith in Christ and need love from us, not racist generalizations — which I don’t think you meant, that just doesn’t seem like you normally sound.

    1. Dear ER

      Shalom.

      Thanks for rebuking me. “Arabs can never be trusted” is a racist comment, which is not worthy of a Christian.

      I apologize, and will correct my ways. ” Arab leaders can not be trusted”. That is a comment that expose 1.400 years of mistrust to Arab leaders.

      Many Arab brothers and sisters, do believe in Jesus the Messiah. If I lived in an Arab nation, I would not mind having fellowship with them. Most likely in secret, and a part of an underground movement.

  3. “If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing; whoever attacks “you will surrender to you. “See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work. And it is I who have created the destroyer to work havoc; no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.” Isaiah 54:15-17.
