Another week....another barrage of rockets.

Since last Wednesday, Israel has been rocketed again and again by Gaza.

Shabbat was particularly bad, as GRAD rockets were fired at Ashdod, Asheklon, Gan Yavneh, Beer Sheva...some direct hits took place as well. As of this morning, over 24 rockets have been launched at Israel from Gaza since Shabbat morning.

Ashkelon resident Moshe Ami, 56, died Saturday after sustaining serious shrapnel wounds by a rocket fired at Ashkelon as part of a relentless attack from Gaza. Another victim was lightly injured. Both were taken to the Barzilai Medical Center. (ynet)

Going to be a long day...

Unfortunately this photo makes me think of the "shower scene" in Shindler's List - this is the "good" picture of the situation, evidence of the Iron Dome not the GRADs and not their damage. (And the rainbow for the uninformed seems like even more good.)

Moshe Ami... the first victim of the Shalit deal.

There will continue to be more Jewish victims until the nation repents.

When it does evil to its own brethren, Jews will suffer. This is a lesson throughout Jewish history.

Why not do the right thing - cancel the rest of the Shalit deal and wipe Hamas off the face of the earth?

In the end, this is the only way Israel can regain its favor in the eyes of Heaven!

At the end of the article in this link I am posting, the author says this latest barrage from Gaza, is an attempt to derail a portion of the swap deal: that Hamas has to abandon its headquarters in Syria. I cannot find confirmation of this anyplace else. Do any here, know of that portion of the deal? Thanks!

Hi Ma Sands -

Its best to ignore 100% of the text on debka. I have never found any of their reporting to be accurate or representative of whats actually going on in Israel.
