The Gush Katif expulsion

With the eyes of the world focusing on 'Palestinian' terrorists firing rockets into Israel from the very places where Jews were expelled from the Gaza Strip, this is as good a time as any to remember what was abandoned two years ago. This video was made by the Tashnady family of Neve Dkalim this past summer to mark two years since they were expelled from their home. Neve Dkalim was one of the communities in Gush Katif, along the southern coast of Gaza, in the same area the 'Palestinians' are using to smuggle import massive amounts of weaponry today. I'm sorry that many of you will not understand the Hebrew. The song is begging God to accept our prayers.

Hat Tip: NY Nana

Keep tissues handy while viewing.

For those with good Hebrew and strong stomachs you may want to see this. I wonder how many of these kids still think it was a 'great operation.'

Thanks for the hat tip, Carl.

That video shows the real Israel, I think, and the homes..and then it shows the reality of Israel and the Jewish world's future being slaughtered, the families, and now?

The faces , the heartbreak on the kids' faces as they go to bury their comrades, family and friends?

The squalid conditions Israelis..Jews who were expelled from their homes by Jews, in Israel. Yet they still live as families, and make the best of it. Will the governemnt ever make the reparations that were promised? I think I know the answer.

I still wear my orange wrist band supporting those who were expelled from Gush Katif 2 years ago.

No, I do not understand much Hebrew, sadly, but the visual effects are superb, and get the message across.

There is a sort of beauty in the video, as it unfolds..and the song? Without understanding a lot of the words? The impact is profound. Thanks for the information.

Are they taking the coffins for re-burial?

And they made the desert bloom..now?

May they know better days....

All those who had been interred in Gush Katif were reburied on the Mount of Olives shortly after the expulsion in a mass (and very poignant) ceremony. I was in the US at the time because my Mom a"h was dying.

I'm an American Christian Zionist. This message is not going to be structed well.. my mind is all over the place.

I visited the Land of Israel in 1998 alone and spent a great three weeks (not long enough!) meeting the great Israeli people and getting to know Tel Aviv/Jerusalem.

Words can't express the anger and resentment I feel towards primarily my government and your government as well.

Why are our powerful countries led by such shortsighted stupid reckless people?

I'm already geting angry thinking about the billions of dollars we're giving to the very people who kill us.

I feel like my govt is a grave danger to Israel and i feel helpless about it. These events seem to so clear to me.. the arabs want war.. they have always wanted war, they will always want war.

Why aren't we giving it to them? Why are we waiting until they all have nuclear weapons?

Its stupidity on a cosmic scale.

Oddly enough, the utter hopelessness of it helps me in my faith in G-d.

I'm convinced there are some nasty spiritual forces at work in the world today... these forces are strenghening our enemies and weakening us. I can think of no other explantion for what is happening... sane people do not sit back as if nothing is happening while the enemy is brainwashing their kids to kill you from birth.

I dont accept that a country that built itself from nothing in 200 years (America) could have leaders who willingly risk our survival on the word of some lying arabs.

Nothing rational explains today.. so my belief in the metaphysical gives me an assurance that in the end, ultimately, justice will be done.

The Jewish people will no longer know the hatred and war that is trust on them. I pray that the day comes soon... if G-d is just it will be very soon.
