what the hell Israel, why haven't the troops been mobilized?!

why is the government sitting on their asses. This is a time to act, not to think.

Time for planning was yesterday, and the day before, and the weeks and months of terrorist attacks before that.

JPost claims "A previous report erroneously said that a rocket landed in the Rishon Lezion area." Can you confirm that?

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Miriam: I think the location has been confirmed as landing next to Bat Yam.

hmmm.... cached google news headline at ynet news says "bat yam"; actual story (15:35) on ynet news only talks about eshkol regional council & ashdod.
