IDF Support: Making Thousands of Soldiers Smile

January 14, 2009

Israel verteidigt sich gegen die dauerhaften Raketenangriffe von Hamas. Israelis aller Altersstufen müssen in den Krieg ziehen, weil die Mullahs in Teheran und Hamas nur ihrem Vernichtungswahn folgen. Ich liege derweil hier in der Frontstadt auf dem Krankenlager.

Vor einigen Tagen bekam ich die Anfrage, ob ich den SoldatInnen der IDF  nicht etwas zur Ermutigung schicken wolle: Neben Gebäck, Eis und Softdrinks wurde auch ein kurzer, anteilnehmender Text von mir  an die Front mitgegeben. Im Angesicht einer tendenziell antiisraelischen Berichterstattung hier in der EU scheint mir das ein guter Weg zu sein, die Aussenwahrnehmung Israels in ein realistischeres Licht zu rücken, denn nicht alle Europäer verstehen unter Frieden, sich über Jahre mit Raketen beschiessen zu lassen.

Den Arabern im Gazastreifen kann ich nur empfehlen, sich demnächt nicht mehr von Teheran vertreten zu lassen, sondern von politischen Kräften, die tatsächlich an einer Zweistaatenlösung interessiert sind.

Das Resultat der Aktion lest euch am Besten selber unten durch:

Thanks for Making Thousands of Soldiers Smile

Dear Readers:

A few days ago, several of us had the great honor to bring thousands of your messages of support and a truckload of freshly baked treats from Gili’s Goodies to an IDF military base near Gaza. Soldiers at the base were going through final preparations for entering combat. They were surprised and very appreciative when our truck pulled up and we handed out stacks and stacks of your messages of support.

When we told the troops that we had come to deliver greetings for them, they assumed that they were greetings from Israelis. When we informed them that there were 15,000 greetings from the United States, Europe and places as far-flung as Peru, Mexico, Finland and Australia, their eyes lit up and the unanimous response was a smile and a surprised “Really?”

Colonel Bentzi Gruber, the vice commander of the armored division who received the messages had this to say for all those who sent messages and the treats:

I want to thank those who sent us stuff. The important stuff is the feeling of our soldiers who come from all over the country, people between 21 and 50 years old…  Now is a war, and we have to do it, and they feel we have support all over the world. It warms us up to understand that people 6,000 miles from here are with us here tonight.

Thank you again. The drive is continuing. If you want to send the campaign to a friend, click here.
