When read this I wondered, what nation on earth, with the lives of their citizens in the balance, would do such things? Thank God for a nation like Israel. May the peace of God rest on this land and may their enemies be driven away and remembered no more.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you. May peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces. For the sake of my a brothers and my friends, I will now say,”May peace be within you.” Psalm 122:6-8

There will never be continued peace in this land as long as terrorist organizations with the sole agenda to see Israel wiped of the face of this earth, are allowed to exist.
