Hear, O non-Israel !

For the next 84 seconds, listen and hear.  (On iPhone, to play audio, click on the 00:00, bottom of article)

Let me spell it out ……

6am, 2nd August 2014, Herzelia, Israel

The “waaah” – Sirens, warning Israeli citizens that Hamas launched rockets are already in the air.

The “woosh” – 20 consecutive seconds of Israel’s Iron Dome defence system launching, to intercept rockets launched from Gaza. (Sounds a bit close, eh?)

The “waaah” – You know, now.

The “silence” – A false sense of security.

The “booms” – The “woosh” intercepting 5 rockets from Gaza, directly above Tel-Aviv.

Start to end: 60 to 90 seconds in Herzelia and Tel-Aviv, 15 to 30 seconds in Ashdod and Ashkelon. What would you do in that 15 seconds?

If you still think Israel should do nothing, close your eyes, imagine you were hearing this from your own living room, listen again, and then decide.
