Gaza Strip On Edge As Hamas Rockets Continue To Be Fired

Once again to be an Israeli must mean you are feeling very, very alone
At least today the Jewish state is protected by its Iron Dome
Rockets from Gaza are heading to Israel like the monsoon rain
As any chance for a ceasefire seems to quickly wane
Hamas seems bent on trying to once again destroy the Jewish state
Must be frustrated when most rockets share an intercepted and destroyed fate
While our only democratic ally has half its population running to shelters as the sirens sound
The clock is ticking quickly before Israel sends into Gaza its forces on the ground
The U.S. response is like a Texas two step, two steps forward one step back
Once again it would appear a strategy we completely lack
We can only under this Administration react
Israel has a right to defend itself from attack
But then Phillip Gordon faults Israel for striking back
One mourns the loss of homes and civilians in the Gaza Strip
But an expected result when Hamas is following its terror script
It is only through the grace of God and the technology of the Iron Dome
That hundreds of Hamas rockets have not been detonating in Israeli homes
