The other is " Israels Armour in action" by Lt.col David Eshel , I.D.A. (retd)
Second, I have a few books on my shelf, recounting the birth of modern Israel. One was written by a Britisher, & the other by an Israeli. That story is amazing in that it matches the ancient (biblical) stories very precisely. You'd call the biblical stories myths, but the modern stories are every bit as miraculous.
There's a bible story that tells us that after Israel had gathered together an army to take on the invaders, God told them that they had too many troops, so they had to reduce their army to about 300, to take on 25,000. Another Bible story says that a powerful invading force were overcome by a great fear, & fled in the middle of the night.
At the beginning of the 1st modern war Israel had no tanks (ie zero), no warplanes, &, believe it or not, were outnumbered on some occasions by more than a 1,000 to 1.
Our royal navy was blockading the Israeli coast to stop the Jews from smuggling arms, but they managed to sneak a ship by. However when they tried to unload the cargo, the whole load slipped into the harbour, & there they remained until the war was over. The mighty Egyptian army fled in the middle of the night, & no shot had been fired at them.
God said He would bring them back to their own land in the last days, & I know He did, for I see his signature on it! If He didn't want to do it himself, He would have armed them to the teeth, & would probably have recruited the US to help. But he did it his way, & He likes His army to be the underdogs!
Israel will never be moved again. I know that because He said so
The plain simple, irrefutable, fact is that Israel is under threat of annihilation ALL the time, & they know that! Therefore they will strike first! Off course!
There was a strange occurence when I was there, I got served bacon & eggs for breakfast! Bacon? I wasn't expecting that.
PS// I went to Israel on a whim, or sort of a whim. I was on my way to Belfast, & saw an ad for Israel in heathrow. I enquired about tickets & found I could fly within the hour, so I went, alone. It's probably because I was alone that I was invited for dinner a few times.
Morality is indeed under attack, & seems likely to loose in the long run. Quality of life will also plummit, but humanity has been through these pogroms before, we'll just have to prepare for what is to come. ( we survived naziism, fascism, communism, but only just. I don't know how we'll fare with a totalitarian system with modern surveyance technology, & modern weapons.)
. However, it is now known that the rate of expansion is increasing, while it should be slowing if a BB was the cause. Putting the universe in order is beyond the capabilities of a BB. Even just putting our solar system in order requires that speeds, direction, distances all be adjusted, - for every planet (& moon ) A BB could not adjust those, & neither could any known natural force.
. Your charitable attitude is admirable, Eamon!
