This is a report of details of today’s fighting, followed by a brief analysis of the war, and then specific prayer requests.

 

Tuesday has seen a reduced number of air attacks against the infrastructure, homes and offices of military leadership and weaponry of the Islamist group Hamas (‘The Islamic Resistance Movement’; for deeper background see newsletters February 2006, June 2007 at www.davidstent.org, under “words”).  This group is linked with the Muslim Brotherhood, a world jihadi group ideologically connected to Osama Bin Laden.  

 

It has also been another day of extended rocket fire against Israeli cities, towns and farms.

 

The air war

 

Continued targets included houses and offices of Hamas leadership, both military and administrative. More tunnels used for smuggling weapons were bombed along the border with Egypt, which has allowed Hamas over the years to bring in vast quantities of armaments to Gaza. Flyers were air-dropped prior to these bombing runs, urging civilians to evacuate the area immediately. Approximatey 60 tunnels have been destroyed, though there are at least 600 still functioning. Many potential targets have not been hit (ammo dumps, weapons factories, missile silos, etc) because they are totally surrounded by civilians populations.

 

Israeli Military Intelligence (AMAN) made over 100,000 telephone calls into Gaza urging Gazans to stay away from Hamas weapons caches and command and control centers. Calls have been placed to Hamas leaders’ homes, ordering families out before bombing runs were made. As well, Hamas radio stations have been hijacked by the IDF at times to broadcast warnings of impending bombings.

 

These efforts flatly contradict the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s rebuke to Israel that it is using “excessive force in Gaza”. When the most advanced air force in the world is attacking terror nests deliberately placed in the middle of civilian populations, and after 4 days of pinpoint bombing has only caused 80 civilian casualties, one should expect that a man of Ki-Moon’s stature would make more accurate and less propagandistic declarations.

 

In more than 500 IAF sorties, a total of 380 Arab fatalities and 1,800 injured to date have been tabulated by Hamas.

 

Pray for the Israeli pilots who need to make split second decisions where many lives could hang in the balance. Pray that God would give them the necessary accuracy, wisdom and discernment. Pray for the salvation of many Gazans (physically and spiritually) during this time of trail.

 

Hamas rocket fire

 

From Monday night to Tuesday night over 40 rockets have been targeted against Israeli cities and farms. There have also been four Israeli fatalities to date. Among them:

 

Late Monday night a mortar fired by Gazan Arabs killed an Israeli Druze Arab serving in the IDF, Master-Sergeant Lutfi Nasser ad-Din (age 38) from Dalyat al-Carmel near Haifa, and wounded 4 others near Kibbutz Nahal Oz, adjoining the Gaza Strip.

 

At 9.00 pm Monday night a Grad rocket fired by Hamas killed Irit Shitrit, age 39 and mother of 4 children. She was returning home from a workout at a local fitness center in Ashdod when the rocket struck her and her sister Ayelet.

 

Hamas increased the range of rockets fired on Tuesday, hitting the towns of Ofakim, Netivot and Yavne (41 kilometers from Gaza), as well as near the cities of Kiryat Malachi and Rahat (Rahat is Israel’s largest Bedouin Arab town with a population of more than 40,000).

 

At 8:56 pm air raid sirens wailed in our own community of Omer adjoining Beersheva, and we heard two explosions. Hamas shot two Grad rockets toward Beersheva, Israel’s sixth largest city. One landed in an open field and the other struck an empty kindergarten, causing devastation and fire. Fifty five civilians were hospitalized for shock. All schools are closed today in Beersheva (43,000 children) as well as in 91 other kibbutzim and regional farms in the Negev.

 

Nearly 200 rockets have been fired by Hamas to date.

 

World media continues to stress that fewer Israelis are being wounded or killed than Gazans, as if this were not a war but a macabre chess game. Would it be fair to ask if too few British or American soldiers are being killed in Iraq as they battle al Qa’eda? Such questions are disgusting, and only give succor to the enemy.

 

Pray for Gaza‘s leadership – that God would frustrate their plans, operations and strategies (Psalm 83:4, 9-15)

 

We thank God for the protection He has granted so far to Israelis, and we strongly encourage you to keep praying for continued safety! Pray for Yeshua to reveal Himself to many Israelis through these trials.

 

Other news

 

Over 100 trucks carrying humanitarian aid (food and medical supplies) were allowed into Gaza by Israel, much of the aid coming from Jordan and Turkey. Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan accused Israel of crimes against humanity, while an Israeli flag was publically burned in Jordan’s Parliament session.

 

In Iraq one hundred Sunnis demonstrated against Israel, but the demonstration was interrupted by a suicide bomber on a bicycle who blew himself up, killing and wounding many.

 

Over 300 Israeli Arabs have been arrested for rioting against the war. Approximately 170 are still in custody. Most of these demonstrations have been in Jerusalem (93 arrested) and in the North.

 

Top Saudi and Taliban Islamic clerics have called for world jihad and indiscriminate international attacks against Israelis and Jews. Mass demonstrations against Israel occurred in Beirut, Amman, Cairo and Teheran. Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, leader of Lebanese Hizbollah, addressed Beirut crowds from an undisclosed location. He has only been seen once in public since the Lebanese war of August 2006, fearful of an Israeli assassination attempt. He called for the overthrow of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who sees Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood as his own mortal enemies. Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said that Hizbollah want “for there to be chaos in Egypt as there is in their country”. Gamal Abdel Gawad, head of the international relations unit of Egypt’s Al-Ahram Center for Strategic and Political Studies, said that “the Palestinian cuase is a major bribe used by the radicals to legitimate their aims and further Iranian hegemony in the Middle East”

 

A vessel charted by the pro-Palestinian International Solidarity Movement attempted to run a blockade of Gaza, and was turned back by an Israeli missile boat. Al Jazeera and CNN reporters were on board, as well as Sami El-Haj, a former detainee at Guantanamo and ex-Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (Georgia, 2008 Green Party candidate).

 

Israeli children in Ashkelon are studying in bomb shelters.

 

Boots on the ground?

 

Israeli tanks, artillery batteries, infantry and special forces continue to mass at the edge of Gaza. Navy ships are hovering just off shore in the blue Mediterranean waters. After the Beersheva rocket attacks, another additional raft of 2,500 reservists was authorized, bringing the total to 9,200 (apart from regular standing armed forces).

 

Hamas has at least 2,000 rockets in hiding including long-range Grads, and advanced anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles. A former Palestinian Authority security official estimates that Hams’ I zed-Din al-Qassam terror wing has over 20,000 rockets and mortars stored, as well as tens of thousands of tons of explosives. The bulk of Hamas trained army fighters (15,000) is intact, as well as the top commanders and underground command and control bunkers. Rockets are still being fired. The need to remove this threat to Israel’s population is even more pressing than ever before. The Israeli security establishment does not feel that Hamas has yet sustained a long-term strategic blow.

 

The mood on the street is very positive about dealing Hamas a decisive death-blow. Late Tuesday night a rumor surfaced (quickly denied by the IDF) that the Israeli Minister of Defense was examining the possibility of a 48 hour cease-fire. Hamas quickly refused any such suggestion, insisting that Israel pull back and refrain from attacking Hamas; that the borders with Egypt be opened for greater smuggling of weapons; and that Hamas would hold onto its rocket arsenal for use as and when it sees fit.

 

On Monday Defense Minister Ehud Barak announced, “Unless the criminal fire at Israeli citizens stops immediately, Israel will utilize all the legal means at its disposal in order to halt the enemy’s aggression”. These words convey a meaning that all Israelis understand. A ground operation is only a short matter of time.

 

Tuesday night the heads of security, defense and government met in a closed door session. Decisions were taken as to the next steps, but there is a total media blackout on their decisions.

 

Pray for the leadership of Israel who are even now making monumental decisions regarding the upcoming ground operation – that God will grant them His strategies, wisdom, courage and discernment (2 Kings 6:8-12)

Monday has been another day of air attacks against the infrastructure, military leadership and weaponry of the Islamist group Hamas (‘The Islamic Resistance Movement’; for deeper background see newsletters February 2006, June 2007 at www.davidstent.org, under “words”).  This group is linked with the Muslim Brotherhood, a world jihadi group ideologically connected to Osama Bin Laden.

 

It has also been another day of rocket fire against Israeli cities, towns and farms.

 

Air attacks

 

IAF planes targeted weapons caches, some of which were hidden inside mosques. Video footage from Israeli UAVs (drones or unmanned aerial vehicles) show Hamas pickup trucks being loaded with long-range Grad missiles and then heading to the northern Gaza Strip to be relocated or fired against Israeli cities. The truck was taken out by air-to-ground Israeli rockets, causing a huge explosion of ordnance.

 

In one case, a mosque was hit and its ammunition dump destroyed. As the mosque toppled over, it crushed an adjoining house, causing five fatalities. For these reasons the Israeli Military Intelligence has been telephoning civilian house in Gaza prior to the air raids, and warning civilians to immediately vacate the premises and to stay away from weapons caches.

 

Today government building associated with Hamas and symbolizing their rule over the Palestinian populace were targeted, including the Ministries of Culture and the Interior. Though the buildings were empty, they have enormous symbolic value for Gazans.

 

A concerted effort is also being made to target military leaders of Hamas, most of whom are underground in deep bunkers – similar to Viet Cong strategies in the late 1960’s. On Monday Maher Zakut (age 30) the commander of Hamas’s rocket-firing forces, was successfully targeted, as well as Ziyad Abu-Tir, 36, a senior activist in the Islamic Jihad terror group.

 

Two research-and-development laboratories located on the Islamic University campus in Gaza City were destroyed. These labs were involved in weapons development, as well as in work to increase the range of the Qassam and Grad rockets.

 

A total of 350 Arab fatalities to date have been tabulated by Hamas. Although Hamas insists that they are 99% civilian deaths, according to yesterday’s UN figures, only 51 of these were civilians. Again of these 51, approximately 30 were women or children. This relatively low figure shows how strenuously the IAF is trying to avoid civilian fatalities, even though Hamas deliberately sets up its command and control (CC) centers and ammo dumps in the heart of civilian areas.

 

Pray for the Israeli pilots who need to make split second decisions where many lives could hang in the balance. Pray that God would give them the necessary accuracy, wisdom and discernment. Pray for the salvation of many Gazans (physically and spiritually) during this time of trail.

 

Hamas rocket fire

 

On Monday over 73 rockets have been targeted against the cities of Sderot and Ashkelon, as well as against kibbutzim in the area.

 

At 9:29 am a Grad rocket fired by Hamas struck a construction site in Ashkelon, killing an Israeli Bedouin Arab worker, Hani al-Mahdi (27) from the Negev village of Aro’er, and injuring 30 others.

 

On Monday over 30 Israelis have been hospitalized, either from wounds or from shock. As I write, three attacks happened in short succession: a Hamas Grad rocket hit a moving civilian car in Ashdod (seriously wounding 2 women) and a Qassam fired by the PRC (Popular Resistance Committee, a PLO break-off group financed by Hizbollah in Lebanon) seriously wounded two Israeli men near the Gaza Strip. As well, a mortar shell killed an Israeli soldier and seriously wounded three others near Kibbutz Nahal Oz, bordering the Gaza Strip.

 

Much has been made in the world media of the fact that many Hamas terrorists have died but only a few Jewish people so far. The logic of these statements is obscene, because it infers that warfare should involve and equal number of fatalities on both sides for it to be a fair fight. Allow me to paraphrase a famous American Army General, George S. Patton, “The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other b—– die for his.”

 

Pray for Gaza‘s leadership – that God would frustrate their plans, operations and strategies (Psalm 83:4, 9-15)

 

We thank God for the protection He has granted so far to Israelis, and we strongly encourage you to keep praying for continued safety! Pray for Yeshua to reveal Himself to many through these trials.

 

Possible developments

 

The prima facie cause of Operation Cast Lead is the continuing rocket and mortar attacks from Gaza’s Hamas against Israeli civilian cities, towns and farms. Over 10,000 of these have been fired at Israel over the past three years. Israel has stated that Hamas’ ability and will to fire these missiles and rockets must be degraded and absolutely stopped. Even though the air attacks have been quite powerful and accurate, Hamas is continuing to fire rockets and cause Israeli fatalities and casualties.

 

On Monday Defense Minister Ehud Barak announced, “Unless the criminal fire at Israeli citizens stops immediately, Israel will utilize all the legal means at its disposal in order to halt the enemy’s aggression”. These words convey a meaning that all Israelis understand. A ground operation is only a short matter of time.

 

Over the past few days a total of 6,500 Israeli reservist have been called up, while tanks, APCs, artillery batteries, Paratroops and Golani Brigade infantry have been taking up holding positions facing the Gaza Strip. Monday morning all access roads leading to the Gaza Strip have been closed to civilian traffic.

 

Pray for the leadership of Israel who are even now making monumental decisions regarding the upcoming ground operation – that God will grant them His strategies, wisdom, courage and discernment (2 Kings 6:8-12)

This is a brief analysis of the war, followed by a report of details of today’s fighting, and then specific prayer requests.

 

The war with Hamas began at 11:30 am Israel time on Shabbat (Saturday) December 27 – the sixth day of Hanukkah (the Feast of Dedication). The Operation was given the military name ‘Cast Lead’ or Opheret yetzuka in Hebrew, referring to the leaden dreidels (sevivon or spinning tops) played with on Hanukkah. These festive tops were once made of molten lead poured into a metal mold, and a popular Hanukkah children’s song refers to a dreidl made of “cast lead”. As God would have it, this war will be identified in the annals of Israeli history as the Hanukkah war.

 

Israelis have a lot of experience with war, and many significant wars are connected with certain Jewish holidays. The Yom Kippur War of October 1973 began on the Day of Atonement. The First Gulf War ended in 1991 on the first day of Purim, the Feast of Esther. The Second Intifada broke out on The Feast of Trumpets in 2000. On the Ninth of Av (Tisha b’Av) in 586 BC and 70 AD, both Jewish Temples were destroyed in Jerusalem. God is still speaking to Israel and the nations by using His prophetic calendar and His feast days (see Leviticus 23:2, 4), and this includes minor feasts like Hanukkah (see Daniel 11:29-35 and Hebrews 11:34-38).

 

Background to this war

 

After Israel withdrew or retreated from the Gaza Strip in August 2005, that region was taken over by the Islamist group Hamas (‘The Islamic Resistance Movement’; for deeper background see newsletters February 2006, June 2007 at www.davidstent.org).  This group is linked with the Muslim Brotherhood, a world jihadi group ideologically connected to Osama Bin Laden.

 

Hamas refuses to recognize the state of Israel. Hamas calls and plans for Israel’s military destruction. Over the past three years it has fired more than 10,000 Qassam or Grad rockets and mortars against civilians only – towns, farms and cities within Israel. And over the past week it fired between 36 and 80 rockets per day into kibbutzim, small villages and large towns. Last Saturday I went to visit some believers on a kibbutz bordering on Gaza, and during my 30 minute visit five rockets fell close by.

 

The government of Israel has strangely tolerated a buildup of these rocket attacks over the past three years. Though originally then-Prime-Minister Ariel Sharon soothingly promised Israelis that the disengagement from Gaza would bring peace, and if even “one rocket were fired” Israel would reconquer the Gaza Strip, the 10,000 rockets fired starkly contradict the soundness and wisdom of his policies. Part of the recent tolerance is due to the fact that the Kadima party Sharon founded is still in office, and these officials owe their political positions to these failed policies.

 

Over the past few weeks Israel has repeatedly warned Hamas and surrounding countries that if the rocket attacks continue, it will decisively and powerfully respond. These Israeli warnings have gone unnoticed by the world’s media, as have the rocket attacks. No country that is worthy of the name would allow terrorists to rocket their civilian populations for so long without an overwhelming response. For both Israel and Hamas, that day of response has come.

 

The surprise attack

 

As Palestinian rocket attacks have increased, Israel has spent the past year culling intelligence in preparation for a decisive counter-attack. Hamas command and control (CC) centers, arms depots, senior residences, training camps, rocket launcher sites and Qassam factories – all were located and charted.

 

On Saturday at 11:30 am 64 Israeli fighter jets and attack helicopters attacked and destroyed 50 strategic Hamas sites in 3 minutes and 45 seconds. A half hour later, another sortie of 20 plans hit 50 more sites, including underground launchers and bunkers. 95% of the hits were ‘alpha’, meaning exact strikes with no collateral damage.

 

Strategic targets

 

Over 240 strategic sites have been hit in the past 40 hours. One site hit was the Hamas police compound, where 80 gunmen were gathered. At other ammo dumps and command centers at least another 50 terrorists were killed. At other smaller CCs a total of 92 terrorists were killed.

 

On Sunday Israeli jets struck and destroyed 40 underground tunnels used by Hamas to smuggle in significant amounts of weapons, explosives and anti-tank/anti-aircraft missiles in a 3 minute 20 second sortie. This area is called the Philadelphi Corridor, and was surrendered to Hamas by Israel due to significant U.S. State Department pressure in 2005. Over 700 tunnels have been dug, and most are still operative.

 

Up to this point Hamas rocket squads have managed to fire more than 70 rockets at Israel, and Israel’s Military Intelligence believes that Hamas has the ability and reserves to fire up to 200 rockets daily for quite some time.

 

On Sunday one Hamas rocket traveled 37 kilometers, hitting Gan Yavne a bedroom community east of Ashdod. This means that other towns including Gedera and Beersheva (where we live) are in possible range of Hamas rockets. The Home Front Command has ordered public bomb shelters to be opened in these twons beginning Monday morning. Pray for the Israeli civilians in rocket range of Hamas mortars and rockets (Qassams and Grad rockets, capable of reaching Ashkelon, Ashdod, Kiryat Gat and Beersheva).

 

The question of casulaties

 

The casualty rate in Gaza has now reached 300 (most of these terrorists), with over 1,000 wounded.

 

The IDF takes great pains to avoid civilian casualties, while Hamas deliberately locates its centers and fires its rockets from within civilian centers. Hamas rockets only target civilians, while the IDF tries very hard to only target terrorists. Due to the immediate proximity of civilians to rocket launchers and Hamas headquarters, there have certainly been some civilian casualties.

 

Israeli army intelligence has warned and even done mass telephoning of Gazan civilians, urging them to stay away from potential target areas. Though civilian casualties are deeply regretted, they are known in military parlance as collateral damage. General William Tecumseh Sherman once remarked (based on his American military experiences) that “war is hell”. We agree, even though it is sometimes necessary.

 

The Palestinian terror groups unfortunately see these casualties in a positive light – as helpful grist in their propaganda mills. They immediately tell the world media that Israel is targeting civilians and causing massacres.

 

One prime example of this tactic was during Operation Defensive Shield (March 2002), triggered by Hamas terrorists who killed 30 Jews (including Holocaust survivors) and injured 140 at a public Passover meal in Netanya Israel. IDF troops retook control of major West Bank cities which had become suicide bomber havens. The army took great pains to avoid civilian casualties, suffering many fatalities in this process. Nevertheless, the Palestinian media accused Israel of a bloodthirsty massacre of over 500 civilians in Jenin. That number was eventually dropped to approximately 56 terrorists, most in uniform, and  7 or 8 civilians (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Defensive_Shield).

 

One 58 year old Jewish man was killed this Saturday in his apartment by a Hamas rocket, and 10 Israelis have been wounded. We thank God for the protection He has granted so far to Israelis, and we strongly encourage you to pray for continued safety!

PRESIDENT OF ISRAEL SPOKESPERSON’S OFFICE

President Shimon Peres Has Made A Special Statement on “Operation Cast Lead” and the Ongoing Palestinian Rocket Attacks

 This morning, President Shimon Peres made a special statement to the media regarding Operation Cast Lead (Israel’s attack on the Hamas terror infrastructure in Gaza) and the ongoing Palestinian rocket fire on civilian areas in southern Israel. A transcript of the statement, which is also available on video from the Associated Press and Reuters, is below.

 It is the first time in the history of Israel that we, the Israelis, cannot understand the motives or the purposes of the ones who are shooting at us. It is the most unreasonable war, done by the most unreasonable warriors.

The story is simple. Israel has left Gaza completely, out of our own free will, at a high cost. In Gaza there is no single Israeli civilian or soldier. They were evacuated from Gaza, our settlements, which called for a very expensive cost. We had to mobilize 45,000 policemen to take out our settlers from there. We spent $2.5 billion. The passages were open. Money was sent to Gaza. We suggested aid in many ways – economically, medically, and otherwise. We were very careful not to make the lives of the civilian people in Gaza difficult. Still I have not heard until now a single person who could explain to us reasonably: why are they firing rockets against Israel? What are the reasons? What is the purpose?

 And I must say also that the phenomenon about Israel is the restraint of the army and the unity of the people. The army waited and waited; the Palestinians asked for a ceasefire, and we agreed. They themselves have violated the ceasefire. Again, we didn’t know why, until it came to a point where we were left without a choice but to bring an end to it. The operation was planned carefully and the army was true to its principles: namely, to be precise in its targets and careful not to hit civilian life. There is a problem because many of the bombs were stored in private houses. We have contacted the owners of the houses, the people that dwell there, and told them leave it You can’t live with bombs. We have to bring an end to the source of the bombs.

 Israel doesn’t have any ambition in Gaza. We left out of our free choice. We have never gone back to the idea of returning to Gaza. It’s over. But we cannot permit that Gaza will become a permanent base of threatening and even killing children and innocent people in Israel for God knows why. I feel that in our hearts, we don’t have any hatred for the Gazan people. Their suffering doesn’t carry any joy in our hearts. On the contrary, we feel that the better they will have it, better neighbors we shall have. Now that Hamas is turning to the Arab world for help, the truth is that the Arab world has to turn to Hamas for the help of Hamas. If Hamas will stop it, there is no need for any help. Everything can come again to normalcy. Passages: open; economic life: free; no Israeli intervention; no Israeli participation in any of the turnarounds in Gaza.

 As a nation, we feel united. As a nation, there is wholehearted support for the army, the way they handled it, their restraint, their discrimination, and their responsibility. The great winner can be reason, and reason will lead to peace. We are very serious, in a serious mood. Many of our children are still in the shelters, and we would like them, like the children of Gaza, to breathe fresh air again. This is the story, and whoever asks us to stop shooting – they have to change the address. Let them turn to Hamas and ask them to stop shooting, and there won’t be shooting.

Thank you very much.
