FAITH VS. FATALISM
Many people, especially believers, tend to feel overwhelmed by the possibility of chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear warfare against Israel. We might feel hopeless, not realizing that all we need to do is take small, manageable, practical steps to prepare for such an eventuality. It is the responsibility of all of us to take action now and do everything within our might to help Israel survive in case of an unconventional attack.
Our responsibility to take action can be illustrated by the story of four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
ISRAEL CRISIS PREPAREDNESS PROJECT
The potential use of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons by Israel's enemies has resulted in an ever-increasing awareness that there is an urgent need for effective preparedness to counter this threat. As a result, Hands of Mercy has launched the "Israel Crisis Preparedness Project".
Drawing on Hands of Mercy's extensive experience in responding to humanitarian crises caused by war, terrorism and rocket attacks and mobilizing our worldwide support base, we are hoping to make a difference in Israel's preparedness to respond to the greatest existential threat it has faced since the Holocaust.
We are looking for potential volunteers with a wide range of expertise from logistics and administration to medical team members and first responders both from Israel and abroad. Please contact us to subscribe to our list of potential volunteers and to learn more about the ways you can help make a difference in these perilous times.
Should you consider contributing to Israel's preparedness and survival though your expertise, we would like to hear from you:
