Revisiting Sderot on the Gaza Border
Yes, this is an old film, but, we are re-posting it for a reason. In recent weeks Iran has become even more antagonistic towards Israel. As a result, the ruling elite in the Gaza strip have begun to once again rear their heads with threats to annihilate the state of Israel.
When the IDF went into Gaza in 2009, Jay, David and Daniel drove to Sderot, a small town on the border of Gaza to see what the people were going through. They heard the explosions, spoke to the citizens and toured the spots where rockets had struck. The idea that citizens had “15 Seconds” to find shelter was sobering. How do you even teach young children to run for a bomb shelter??
During this time, Earl Cox, an international broadcaster and journalist was also in Sderot. He was there to support the people. One evening he even purchased pizzas and drinks for the soldiers of the IDF who were on active duty along the border.
Mr. Cox invited David Rawlings and the Mayor of Sderot to Washington. David was able to record the Mayor as he gave his thoughts on the situation in Israel and thanked the American people for their support.
Now, in 2018 as you watch this, please take note~time has indeed passed, but nothing has really changed~Israel’s enemies continue to surround her and threaten the annihilation of the world’s only Jewish State.
