Schlissels of Israel Report: HAMAS Missile Missed Us By That Much; My Cousins’ School Hit

By Debbie Schlussel
My cousin, Arnie Schlissel, our family historian and archivist, lives in Israel. (Some of us spell it differently, but most Schlussels, Schlissels, and Schlessels are related.) He sends this report about the HAMAS missiles hitting Be’er Sheva, where he and some of the Israeli Schlissels live. Below is a picture of the Schlissel kids’ school, which was hit. This isn’t the first time HAMAS has tried to strike the Schlissel/Schlussel/Schlessel family. A couple of years ago, a HAMAS-allied terrorist group, Ahmed Abu Al-Raeesh Brigades, hacked our family tree website and posted martyrdom propaganda.
Sorry, HAMAS–you missed the Schlissels:

HAMAS Missile Hits Israeli Schlissel’s School

Just to let you know that the Schlissels of Beer Sheva are all ok.
Last night Karen jovially said “I hope the schools will be closed tomorrow.”
She was jovial because she was thinking of a day off. (She’s a teacher).)
I’m sure it never crossed her mind that about 12 hours later it would be hit by a missile.
We are receiving about 1 minute warning before missile arrives, and so we all make sure we have access to safe place. Each of us has a reinforced room in our home that serves as a bomb shelter.

We keep hearing the anti-Israel mainstream media moan about the HAMAS children hit by Israelis. Fortunately, Israel is in a sort of state of emergency, and kids weren’t in this Israeli school, where there are–you know–kids.
Next time you hear anyone say that Israel is using “excessive force,” think about the kids who could have been inside this school, and would have been, had school not been canceled.
Imagine your home, today, on New Year’s Eve, under constant attack by missiles with one-minute warnings, and you and your family hiding in a bomb shelter, like my cousins are doing today. If America responded to try to make it stop, would that be a “disproportionate response”?

Bad News : On CNN there was an “expert” on the
Middle East by the name of Miller commenting on
future US policy who at he end of his commentary
stated that in the next administration US policy
should be more “fair”.
Yes Sirree ! Now that we are getting rid of that
Jew loving nincompoop W. we are going to have a
president who sees things from the terrorist point
of view !
BTW ! Where is Slick Willie ? I distinctly remember him telling his Jewish audience that he
would be right there in the trenches with his
trusty long rifle if Israel was ever in danger !
Too Bad : instead he is going to send the women folk ( Sec of State Hillary ) to do the tough
work instead ! Hillary ! Please be fair !!!

The ineluctable fact of Arab hatred of Israel won’t changed through more Potemkin peace agreements. It will only be defeated when Israel makes it clear it won’t live with a situation where Arabs can kill Jews all they want and Jews are expected to just grin and bear it. Its time to change the rule forever.

Shalom Alecheim:
It has been many years since I was in Israel, but when I saw the news on television about Hamas missiles striking Beer Sheva, I had to wonder about those Arabs.
As I recall, the population of Beer Sheva was more Arabic than Jewish.
Has that changed?
The tour group I was with stopped at the Beduin open air market in Beer Sheva.
I bought a curved Arab dagger and a white burnoose with a black braided cord.
Over the years, I’ve lost track of those items.
I still have a couple of souvenirs here in my room, but I might have given those particular items to relatives.
Being an American soldier and travelling around the globe, I’ve gone through lots of souvenirs and mementoes, alternately acquiring them or forgetting what I did with them.
Although I can speak a very few Hebrew words or phrases, I’ll now offer you a Scottish Gaelic greeting:
“Nollaig Chridheil agus Bliadhna mhath ur!”
(Pronounced as “Noll-yeek Kree-yell ah-kuss Blee-ah-nah vah oor”, the literal translation into English is “Christmas Hearty and Year well new!”)
Todah.

I’m glad that your relatives are OK, although of course I can realize that they were probably shaken up. Your two posts today remind us of the barbarism of the Muslim/terrorists. The ‘civilized’ world’s response, putting Israel on a par with Hamas shows us the fragility of civilized life in the West. Civilization fell completely apart in the 30s and 40s, and never really improved that much, save for isolated time periods in isolated counries. These types of events remind us how close we are to the complete barbarism of the 30s and 40s.

Rock ‘em, sock ‘em, and don’t stop til they’re all dead — why Israel would put up with even one missle striking their territory without a devastating response is beyond me, even with the pansy weasels now in charge of the country.
Change of attitude from “All talk, all the time,” to “Shoot first, ask questions (if any) later” is critical to Israel’s survival, especially after the Obambi Regime comes to power in 20 days; they will always take the terrorists’ side, no matter what the facts on the ground.
