Home Front Command: Prepare for 7 weeks of fighting
Ynetnews ^ | 11/17/2012 | Yoav Zitun

Home Front Command asks local authorities to prepare for seven-week fighting period: In discussions held between Home Front Command Chief Major-General Eyal Eisenberg, regional commanders and heads of local authorities in the center and in the south, authorities have been instructed to prepare for a seven-week period of combat as part of Operation Pillar of Defense and to prepare emergency supplies, accordingly.

Some supplies were prepared in advance. The Home Front Command estimates that terror organizations in the Gaza Strip are still capable of launching long-range rockets, even further than a 75-kilometer range.

The Home Front Command sharpened instructions for the Tel Aviv metropolitan area and southern residents and, accordingly, communities located in a range of between 40-75 kilometers from the Gaza Strip must enter nearby, protected spaces the moment blasts or sirens are heard.

If there is no protected space in the vicinity, residents should enter the nearest structure or stairwell. In light of the long-range rockets fired over the past few days, these instructions apply to all communities within a 75-kilometer range and not only in the Tel Aviv metropolitan area.

Until now, 2,000 ground reservists have been enlisted to the Home Front Command. Beyond emergency and rescue team activities at locations where missiles have landed, the Command's soldiers have been filling various duties such as providing reinforcements at hospitals, opening baby-sitting services and renovating shelters.

Shelters – on demand
Due to the escalation, the Home Front Command has been enlarging protected areas and dispersing portable shelters in southern communities. Instruction has yet to be given to the Tel Aviv metropolitan area authorities to open public shelters, but authorities have been opening shelters upon resident demands in various neighborhoods, as residents turn to the municipal 106 call center.

The Home Front Command has not yet been caught by surprise by the rocket firing range, firing rate and the like. Until now, over 550 missile landings have been counted, but only 26 of them in built-up areas.

The commander of the Home Front Command has released orders to the Ashdod Port and to factories with hazardous materials in the south. According to these orders, hazardous materials must be protected and removed.

Thousands of reservists have received emergency enlistment orders and, over the past few hours, have been trickling into the gathering and enlisting point in the south. Hundreds of military trucks with supplies, ammunition, water and gasoline, alongside tank-carriers, armored-personnel carriers and jeeps are filling the Gaza vicinity roads in a sight that has not been seen in the area since Operation Cast Lead.

What would our response be if “only 26” missiles were fired into, say, Houston from Mexico?

You know, the Israelis are really good at planning and executing the planned plan. The mooselimbs aren’t.

It’s a Red State.

Obama would probably run replacement missiles to Mexico.

I love that you are praying. I wonder if you might know how much hope that gives others. I join you in prayer. I am also reading the Bible, for comfort. Look at Isiah 31, if you are interested. (You can change interpretations at this site) http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+31&version=ESV God bless you.

Prayers can’t hurt I suppose, but overwhelming firepower and ruthless determination will be pretty helpful too.

"Barack Hussein Obama.

Israel is on its own."

Israel will be lucky if that is all that Obama does. He is likely to interfere as much as possible on the side of the Islamists. He can let it be known that there will be no consequences for Egypt if it attacks or sends military assistance to Hamas. He can release additional aid to front line Muslim states that can be used against Israel. He can provide intelligence on Israel military moves to its enemies. He can push the UN to interefere, and on and on.

"Are the American Jews praying?"

American jews are praying at the feet of their new negro god. Moses would strike them all down.
