    Likud MK Gideon Saar attacked the ceasefire agreement with Hamas Monday morning, saying Israel failed to achieve any of its goals with the agreement, adding that the battle with the Gaza based terror group was not won, but merely delayed.

    “The ceasefire, in the circumstances it was reached under, has no gains for Israel,” said Saar.

    “The time between each round of violent attacks against Israel and its citizens is shrinking, and terror organizations in Gaza are strengthening. The fighting hasn’t been ended, just pushed off.”

    Opposition lawmakers also criticized the ceasefire deal, with Blue and White party chairman MK Benny Gantz saying that “after nearly 700 rockets fired into Israeli territory, with four people killed and many injured – all of them as a result of the loss of deterrence – this [round] has ended with yet another surrender to Hamas and the terrorist organizations.”

    “All the government has done, yet again, is leave the next battle at our doorstep.”

    Blue and White MK Yair Lapid accused Netanyahu of leading Israel’s “total surrender” to Hamas.

    “Netanyahu used the residents of the south as a bullet-proof vest on his way to the complete surrender to Hamas. Netanyahu won’t solve the problem in Gaza. He doesn’t have the operational and political courage to do that. At the very least, he owes the people of Israel an explanation regarding the situation, but even that he doesn’t have the courage to do.”

    After nearly two days of fighting, a ceasefire agreement between Israel and the Gaza-based terror group Hamas went into effect at 4:30 a.m. Monday.

    The fighting began Saturday, with a massive barrage of rockets launched from Gaza at southern Israel. Some 700 rockets were fired at Israeli territory before the ceasefire went into effect.

    Four people have been confirmed killed in the attacks, with dozens more injured.

    Twenty-three Gazans were reported killed in Israeli retaliatory strikes, including nine people identified as terrorists from either Hamas or the Islamic Jihad organizations.

    1. During past conflicts in the Land of Israel, & during times of danger for the Jewish people, the Rebbe Shlita made practical suggestions of mitzvot that would elicit G‑d’s blessings and protection.

      Let us not underestimate the power of good! With a single good deed on our part, here and now, we each can contribute toward the victory and safety of our fellow Jews in Israel.

      Take a minute to do one or more of the following. You can make a difference!

      Torah study,

      Doven for the safety of the soldiers of the IDF, and for all residents of the Holy Land (suggestion: Psalms 20, 22, 69 and 150).

      Charity and acts of kindness: Put a coin in a charity box, give a gift of money to a fellow in need or to a charitable cause, or extend a helping hand to someone who needs it.

    2. On a positive note: Even though The fight for Sh’Lemus Ha’Aretz seems overwhelming. We need to remember what it was like to fight for Yiddishkeit in the Former Soviet Union (the 2nd most powerful country in the world).

      And with the Rebbe’s brochos & guidance we won. & now the Soviet Union only exists in history books.
