Speaking of war
Mentalblog has a first-hand Katyusha attack account from the holy city of Safed (aka Tzefat) (- hat tip Akiva)
R' Ariel bar Tzadok has an interesting essay about the war (PDF file). So does R' Pinchos Winston.
Akiva quotes R' Lazer Brody and R' Dov Bar Leib as to what the war means as part of the Geula process.
Also, R' Brody is becoming another Rav Amnon Yitzhak by being Mezakeh the Rabim to do Mitzvot. (See here and here)
Nava and Hashem1.net quote the Halban ("Milkman") as saying 2 days before the war that a very harsh decree on the nation of Israel needs to be annulled.
Let's all pray for:
1)the safe return of all our captive soldiers
2)a speedy recovery for all injured by the rockets (among all the Holim of Israel)
3)the destruction of all Kassams and Katyushas
4)the destruction of:
c) Bin Laden
e) וכל כיוצא בהם - ימח שמם וזכרם
5)teshuva for Am Yisrael - especially important at this time of year and this time in history
6)the end of Galut and the beginning of the Geula, which should come quickly.
