Christians United for Israel

CUFI Live from Southern Israel

Israel is Under Attack

November 13, 2018

While Pastor John Hagee and CUFI staff were in Israel Monday leading a tour of 600 hundred Christians from America and around the world, an unprecedented barrage of rocket fire from Gaza triggered wave after wave of Israel’s Red Alert emergency sirens. Families in Southern Israel, to include Ashkelon, Beersheba, Kiryat Gat and Sederot where the attacks centered, grabbed their children and ran into bomb shelters. A large portion of Southern Israel spent the entire day huddled in crowded bunkers as sirens and explosions rocked the air outside.

Terrorists in Gaza intentionally targeted residential areas in an attempt to murder innocent civilians in their homes, schools, and workplaces. Several homes were hit and the damage to private property has been extensive. When an apartment building in Ashkelon was hit close to midnight, one person was killed and eight others were injured. Two of the women reportedly are being treated for life-threatening injuries. Our prayers are with all of the victims and their families. More than 50 people in Israel have received treatment from emergency services for wounds or trauma caused by the rocket attacks.

In response to this intolerable wave of terror, the IDF retaliated by striking more than 150 terrorist targets inside Gaza. As rockets continue to fall on Israel’s civilian population, the IDF is preparing for a much larger conflict should Hamas fail to enforce a cease-fire and restore quiet to the region. Israel has moved ground forces, tanks, and other military vehicles into position along the border with Gaza, and the IDF canceled school today for cities in the border region. Israeli citizens within range of the rocket fire have been warned to stay inside or close to bomb shelters for the second day since the attacks began.

There are reports of a possible cease fire. We hope and pray that comes to pass. But we’ve not forgotten that Hamas did threaten to launch longer-range missiles capable of hitting the cities of Ashdod and Beersheba. Their spokesman recently boasted, “Approximately one million Zionists will be within the range of our missiles if the Zionist enemy’s decision is to continue its aggression.”

President Trump’s administration has taken a firm stance in support of Israel’s right to defend itself from these rocket attacks. The president’s special envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, Jason Greenblatt, stated, “These rocket & mortar attacks on Israeli towns must be condemned by all. Israel is forced once again into military action to defend its citizens. We stand with Israel as it defends itself against these attacks.”

CUFI unequivocally condemns this murderous assault on the citizens of Israel, and we pray for a swift end to the violence. We pray that war will be averted and peace restored to the people of Israel, and we call on the people of Gaza to reject the leadership of Hamas whose single-minded obsession with destroying Israel endangers and brings unnecessary suffering to millions of innocent Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip.

Pastor Hagee, CUFI’s founder and national director, responded to the ongoing rocket fire by saying, “Our heartfelt prayers for comfort and protection go out to the people of Israel being terrorized by Hamas and its accomplices in Gaza. More than 4.5 million members of Christians United for Israel stand resolutely behind Israel’s right to defend itself and the safety of its citizens. No sovereign state in the world would tolerate even one rocket attack on its people without swift military action, and Israel has the same rights as any other state to defend itself.”

截至当地时间11月13日下午2点36分,以色列新闻媒体报道,恐怖分子向以色列南部的家庭发射了近500枚火箭和导弹。这一令人咋舌的数字包括一夜之间的70次导弹攻击,此前昨天创纪录地突破了一天内来自加沙的300次火箭袭击。

当牧师John Hagee和CUFI工作人员周一在以色列带领美国和世界各地的600名基督徒进行巡回演出时,来自加沙的前所未有的火箭弹引发了一波又一波的以色列红色警戒紧急警报。在以色列南部的家庭,包括阿什凯隆,别是巴,基里亚特盖特和塞德罗特,袭击中心,抓住他们的孩子,并进入防空洞。以色列南部的大部分地区整天都挤在拥挤的掩体中,因为警报器和爆炸震动了外面的空气。

加沙的恐怖分子故意以住宅区为目标,企图在家中,学校和工作场所谋杀无辜平民。一些房屋遭到袭击,私人财产遭到破坏。当Ashkelon的一栋公寓楼在午夜时分被击中时,一人死亡,另有八人受伤。据报道,其中两名妇女正在因危及生命的伤病接受治疗。我们的祈祷与所有受害者及其家人一起祈祷。以色列有50多人接受了火箭袭击造成的伤口或创伤的紧急服务。

为了应对这种令人难以忍受的恐怖浪潮,以色列国防军通过在加沙内部打击150多个恐怖主义目标进行报复。由于火箭队继续落在以色列的平民身上,如果哈马斯未能实施停火并恢复该地区的安静,以色列国防军正准备发生更大规模的冲突。以色列已将地面部队,坦克和其他军用车辆移至加沙边境,以色列国防军今天取消了边境地区城市的学校。自袭击发生以来的第二天,火箭弹射击范围内的以色列公民已被警告留在或靠近防空洞。

有报道称可能会停火。我们希望并祈祷它成真。但我们并没有忘记,哈马斯确实威胁要发射能够击中阿什杜德和别是巴的城市的远程导弹。他们的发言人最近夸口说:“如果犹太复国主义的敌人决定继续进行侵略,大约有一百万犹太复国主义者将在我们的导弹射程范围内。”

特朗普总统的政府采取坚定的立场,支持以色列保卫自己免受这些火箭袭击的权利。总统的以色列 – 巴勒斯坦和平进程特使杰森格林布莱特说:“这些对以色列城镇的火箭和迫击炮袭击必须受到所有人的谴责。以色列再次被迫采取军事行动来捍卫其公民。我们与以色列站在一起,因为它可以防御这些攻击。“

CUFI毫不含糊地谴责对以色列公民的这一凶残袭击,我们祈祷迅速结束暴力。我们祈祷避免战争,恢复以色列人民的和平,我们呼吁加沙人民拒绝哈马斯的领导,哈马斯一心一意地摧毁以色列危害并给生活在其中的数百万无辜巴勒斯坦人带来不必要的痛苦。加沙地带。

CUFI的创始人兼国家主任Hagee牧师回应了正在进行的火箭射击,他说:“我们衷心祈求安慰和保护以色列人民受到哈马斯及其在加沙的同谋的恐吓。超过450万名以色列联合基督徒成员坚决支持以色列捍卫自己和公民安全的权利。世界上任何一个主权国家都不会容忍即使在没有迅速采取军事行动的情况下对其人民进行一次火箭袭击,以色列也拥有与任何其他国家相同的权利来保卫自己。“
