Letter from 23 year-old Israeli soldier, killed in action

Imshin has translated a letter from Gadi, an Israeli Soldier who was killed while fighting Palestinian terrorists in Jenin in April 2002. The letter was written to his girlfriend Galit:

My dear Galit,

If this letter reaches you, it means that something has happened to me.

My love, on one hand there is nothing in the world that I want more than to be with you, to love you and to build a home and a family with you.

But on the other hand, there is nothing I want more than to go out on this operation and hit these bastards, so they won’t think of doing another terrorist attack. So that they will know they are paying a price. I am prepared to be that price…

I will always think of you, wherever I will be and I’ll make sure you meet a person who will make you happier than I have… Promise me you will carry on. That is how it should be, that is right.

Gadi

March 2002. 23 year-old reserve soldier Gad Ezra, wrote this letter to his girlfriend, whom he was about to marry. About a month later, on 4th April, he was killed in the IDF operation in Jenin.

Well, he sure was a price then. No comment other than, may God and His Son help in in the after world...
Wait, these people DO respect people's religions, don't they?
Well any way, I'm not enforcing any of my belief's but just my best wishes
