Mercy to the Cruel is Cruelty to the Mercifull
This unfair terrible reality of death all around is impossible to comprehend. 24 soldiers died yesterday, 5 more died today. Well over 100 soldiers got injured. The numbers keep being updated and it won't stop. This movie gives a good idea of what it feels like...
The huge increase in missile attack makes the ceasefire that is supposed to start in 7 hours seems ridiculous. The battles around my house are loud and don't stop for a single moment. The IDF is trying to accomplish as much as possible and destroy as much Hezbollah as possible before they must stop. I feel that whatever we didn't accomplish in 33 days of fighting we probably aren't going to accomplish tonight.
There's a sentence in Hebrew that says: "Mercy to the Cruel is Cruelty to the Mercifull". Think about the meaning of this wise sentence. Israel will not bomb when there's the slightest doubt or suspect that civilians are at steak even though chances are these civilians cooperated with terror and let it go on without trying to stop it. This high morality is costing us at the lives of our own soldiers, while terror keeps growing at these countries who don't try to stop it but more so encourage it too!
Palestinian using children as shield, what else is new?
