Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/5/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/5/2012A Grad rocket was launched from the Sinai into the southern Israeli city of Eilat today. Fortunately no one was reported injured in the attack. The fall of the Mubarak regime has allowed militants more scope for action in the Sinai, leading to an increase in terror attacks on Israel.

In other news, two Tunisian men have been sentenced to seven years in prison for posting cartoons of Mohammed on Facebook. One of the defendants escaped to Europe to avoid prosecution, and was sentenced in absentia. The other is still in Tunisia.
