As the song says, a Latin American with no money in his pocket.
The 7th of October stands as a day of infamy. Israel, our fortress of determination and spirit, was heinously blindsided. What audacity propelled terrorists to violate our defenses from Gaza by land, sea, and air? The skies were sullied by 2,500 rockets, each an unspeakable affront. As over 200 of our kin wear the grievous wounds of this insidious treachery, the nation’s fury simmers, poised to boil over. Reports of our fellow Israelis entrapped within their houses deepen the collective heartbreak.
Once the immediate crises are addressed — the release of the captured and the swift and unyielding reassertion of Israel’s sovereignty — a searing question demands our rage: How did this blatant act of aggression escape the so-called vigilance of our intelligence and the lamentably weak hands of our current government?
Enough of the incompetents. Enough of amateurs. Enough of hysterical antics. We need a genuine government.
Benjamin Netanyahu, who has often boasted of his steely leadership, now finds himself in the crucible. Did his much-touted doctrine of unwavering security become nothing more than hollow rhetoric? Have fatal oversights been dismissed, creating chinks in our armor?
As for Itamar Ben Gvir and his ilk, who navigate the hallowed halls of power with more bluster than brains, the words are clear: Shame on you! Your political theatrics and reckless posturing are not just irresponsible but reprehensible. Have your divisive tactics and noisy distractions not added fuel to an already raging inferno?
In the face of this, the booming voices of our past echo, reminding us of leaders who would have torn into such negligence with ferocity and unyielding honesty. Their unwavering commitment stands in stark contrast to the dithering we witness today.
As the dust settles on this disastrous day, Israel is at a precipice. Now is the time for unsparing introspection, an uncompromising recalibration, and an unwavering commitment to our sacred land and its people. The agonizing lessons of this dark day will forge our path forward, demanding an unyielding vigilance and an indomitable spirit. This isn’t just a challenge; it’s a guttural roar from the depths of our history, beckoning us to stand tall, fortify our ranks, and ensure such a travesty is never repeated. Bibi, resign now!
