Just a quick thought here...When you rearrange the spelling of GRAD in Hebrew, it forms the word DaRGA - which means level in Aramaic. Not only has the Grad missile been the next "level" of rockets being used by the enemy, it surely represents that we are a level closer to the Geula!
ps - Speaking about the "next level"...Since we can clearly glean the direction that the Geula is headed in (which is looking more like a massive war, c"v); I feel that it would be beneficial for all, if I would discussing some important thoughts and topics of trust in Hashem. Our Rabbis tell us that our trust in Hashem is most important in our specific generation. I was thinking of doing this in a separate blog, which would be dedicated to discussing only thoughts on Emuna and Bitachon. I figure that it would all be coherent and organized that way. I would appreciate any comments from the dedicated and much more experienced readers/bloggers - whether I should open a separate blog for it, or just discuss it here.
