“I will open My eyes on the House of Judah, and will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, ‘The inhabitants of Jerusalem are my strength in the Lord of hosts, their G-d.’ In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a firepan in the woodpile, and like a fiery torch in the sheaves; they shall devour all the surrounding people on the right hand and on the left, but Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place – Jerusalem.
Zechariah 12:4-6 (parts)
Senior reserve officers signed a petition supporting Im Tirtzu's struggle against the organizations supported by the New Israel Fund that besmirched the IDF. "We deplore the false claim by 16 Israeli NGOs that the IDF carried out war crimes during operation Cast Lead,” the petition's text said. In fact, it said the IDF “was making superhuman efforts to avoid hurting innocent civilians. We therefore call upon the entire public to support us and strengthen the IDF and its commanders.”
The signatories include the former Head of the National Security Council, Maj. Gen. (res.) Giora Eiland; former Head of Southern Command, Maj. Gen. (res.) Doron Almog; former Head of Ground Forces Command, Maj. Gen. (res.) Yiftach Ron-Tal; former Head of the National Security Council and Deputy Chief of Staff, Maj. Gen. (res.) Uzi Dayan; former Head of Personnel Branch Maj. Gen. (res.) Elazar Stern; former Military Secretary to the Minister of Defense, Maj. Gen. (res.) Yakov Amidror, former Navy Commander, Maj. Gen. (res.) Micha Ram, former Head Artillery Officer and President of Industrialists' Federation Brig.-Gen. (res.) Oded Tira.

BibleSearchers – The strength of the House of Judah will be given to her by the G-d of Israel, in spite of those nations who seek to overthrow her. The Christians of the Lost Tribes of Israel in America and Europe who think their national self interest supersedes the divine mandate of National Israel will someday come to their new reality that they are to support and assist their tribal cousins the Jews. The Lost Tribers in the Protestant denominations who consider that they are “Spiritual Israel” and have replaced the covenanted Israel will either have to reconsider and come to their biblical reality that they are not to replace but join the whole House of Jacob living in the Land of Israel as G-d’s chosen ones at the time of the end.
Let us beware that what the G-d of Israel declares, that He will do. The language that He uses in His scripture is specific to the minute detail that no man or institution can alter, sparing G-d’s judgment be placed upon themselves. The prophetic facts are spoken with great clarity, the G-d of Israel will fight for His people in order to bring forth their restoration, redemption, and peace and safety in their national homeland.
