The New War And What It Means for the Real Estate Cycle

Updated: Dec 1, 2023

No doubt you have been watching coverage of the war between Israel and Hamas on the news.

However, as with all mainstream news coverage, the gruesome reality of what is occurring on the ground is not being seen or adequately represented.

As some of you may be aware, I am Jewish.

I have spent a considerable amount of time in Israel over the years — and last year, I very nearly moved there. As such, I have many friends who live in Israel and have some direct insight into what is occurring.

This war is unlikely to be resolved quickly. We’re not talking days, or even weeks. Terrorists are inside the boarders of Israel and atrocities that are unimaginable are taking place on the ground.

The other night I received this text message from a friend in Tel Aviv — along with a photo (that I cannot not share here.)

Our soldiers just found 40 kids and babies in a room, they killed them all and took some of their heads off.. They are worse than the nazies and satan together…

Grandmothers and young girls have been raped and slaughtered.

Immigrants that are not even Jewish — have been beaten at their places of work and decapitated.

The videos that have been sent by friends in the bomb shelters or on the front line, showing some of what is happening, have made me physically sick.

In one day, more Israelis were killed than in any day, of any cause (natural, COVID, or war) since the State of Israel was founded.

I tell you this not to inflame a political debate. But to stress it’s no ordinary war — and for once, I’ll say that it’s about more than just land.

Pure hatred lay at its heart.
