We continue to pray for Israel and her people.

    Think about what this photo really says. The mom is saying, “I may die here, but you will live.” And this is what Israelis face every day of their lives.

    Uhm… who’s taking the picture… and what is *his* (or *her*) posture at the time this siren is going off?

      That’s your first thought? Tears came to my eyes & my heart ached. I must be wacko, eh?

      What’s your point?? what does it matter who’s taking the picture or what their posture is?! Most likely it’s a news photographer, unarmed, unprotected, and doing their job, which is to show the world the tragedies of war. There is nothing the photographer could have done to help this mother and her child. They have been trapped in the open, no place to hide, nowhere to run. And who’s to say that the photographer didn’t do whatever they could to help them?

      That’s an interesting question but perhaps you should watch The Bang Bang Club & do some research on war journalists.

    There’s a picture worth a thousand words.

    Think of what this really says…Israel, through decades of dithering, inattention, and half-hearted attempts at appeasement still allows this terrorist organization free reign on their borders. The US isn’t blameless, looking to curry favor with child murderers like Arafat. But I see Israel as a suburban housewife who keeps a tiger in her backyard as a pet, and a cobra in her kids room.

    In America, the land of the hand out, how would we fare in a Hamas-Nazi-London style ca. 1940 Blitz with a 1,000 rockets whistling our way, with a batch every day, regardless of the weather? Wouldn’t we want that BS stopped in a NY minute or would we want some feckless nincompoop to try the same tired vaudeville of brokering a cease fire while the rockets keep coming, our friends and relatives are being killed, and our lives and livelihoods are disrupted? No, I betcha we’d want every big rig we have in the air right now going to wherever the rockets are coming from to put the kibosh, JDAMS, RockEyes, Paveways, cluster bombs, maybe a few MOAB’s, and toss in a few of our small diameter bombs, on them. So why do we always tell the set upon post-Holocaust Jewish state to walk on tip-toes and whisper while their citizens are being bombed and killed? They have the means and the will, yet we trip all over ourselves dragging out the white flags.

    If you know your mom would have done this for you, time to call her, and tell her you love her.

    This could be us.

    I’m sad for the reason for the picture…but I am also incredibly inspired and reaffirmed by it. God bless those two and all in Israel.

    Israeli mom shields child as best she can during Hamas rocket attack.

    Palestinian mom does what Hamas says and lets child play near where rockets are being fired by terrorists.

    • walterc

      And teaches her child to hate the Jews and that someday he/she can be a suicide bomber for Allah.
