Disengagement

Jeremiah 14.2

Judah is in mourning,
Her settlements languish,
Men are bowed to the ground,
And the outcry of Jerusalem rises

The above verse is in reference to a drought that Israel was suffering from. The word drought not only means lack of rain but also a shortage. The drought Israel faces is lack of peace.

In a bid for peace, has the Israeli government endangered her people more? There are daily reports of new terrorists armies being formed in Gaza, weapons being moved to the West Bank, and now, terrorists from Lebanon moving into Gaza. When the Palestinian Authorities own Fatah movement is responsible for terrorist attacks against Israel, will moving the settlers out accomplish anything more than having less room for Israel to move defensively?

I fear that disengagement will not improve the drought of peace Israel has faced for the past 57 years. I see the anguish in the settler and IDF faces. The settlers made what was considered unworkable land into a land that produced a bountiful harvest.

God bless Israel.
