Problems are doubling up in the world and especially for Israel. North and South Korea are at it again. North Korea has atomic capabilites or soon will have, which is a big threat, and the U.S. is trying to figure out how to punish them. Iraq and Kuwait are arguing over money, of all things. Iraq owes Kuwait money for its airline and can't pay off, so they've declared bankrupcy for the airline. The off-shore oil well is being capped but is not guaranteed to be shut down as yet. It's destroyed much of the USA's coastal life and cities. A major Democrat is having fits about it in Louisiana. Obama's problems are indeed scattered.
Israel had a defense drill yesterday to practice a large-scale rocket attack. In the meantime they know that chemical warfare can come on missiles from Lebanon where Iranian terrorists are assembled. They have the ability to hit anywhere in Israel now. Many of the civilians didn't bother to practice as they have had so much real life experience already.
Oh yes, Iran has threatened Israel's existence and also has atomic capabilities or soon will have, so that's a major threat.
What has Israel done to endear themselves to this mighty empire of Iran? Exist! Fight off continuing attacks from its neighbors. Evidently most of the world's countries didn't ever expect this to happen and beat their drums in dismay. I wonder how many bets have been lost. You'd think G-d was helping Israel.
