Preparing for Battle

The husband found and edited this create video of IDF soldier saying T'fillat Ha'Derech (The prayer for the journey) before their tank heads into Lebanon. It is a Jewish tradition to say this prayer before you set out on a trip that will, either, be long or cross state or country lines. It's asking G-d for a safe journey, to watch over us, to protect us, and to return us home safely. The fact that these boys took the time to say the prayer with everything else going on shows you where their perspective and priorities are. They don't ask G-d to help them kill people, because that's not what they want. They just G-d to watch over them, protect them in their journey, and make sure that they make it home OK.
