The Rockets’ Red Glare in Sderot

One Jerusalem has some exclusive video footage of the damage caused by Kassam rocket attacks on the Israeli town of Sderot, which lies just across the border from the Gaza Strip.

In one of the videos you can see the inadequate protective measures taken at local public buildings, in particular the schools:

As my guide, Noam Bedein from Sderot Media pointed out, the funding tends to run out after only part of the secure barrier is built. Keep in mind, the children in thee schools have only fifteen seconds to run into a protected part of the building when the siren goes off.

Make sure you scroll all the way down, because the last video shows a Kassam rocket attack in progress.

Kassam attack in SderotAs Noam was explaining where the rockets were coming from we heard a loud whoosh an watched a rocket launch from directly in front of us! Immediately after the rocket was launched you could hear the loud chants of Allah Akbar. It was an eerie experience to say the least.

This is an example of what Israelis have had to endure since peace descended on the region after they vacated the Gaza Strip. And it’s a reminder of the treatment the Little Satan receives, year in and year out, at the hands of the Religion of Peace.

This is grounds for a ground war and occupation.

Do the jews really want to survive? If they don't, they should let us know so we can stop wasting money and heart on them. Gaza should be a pile of rubble with bits of rotting organic material mixed in. Any nation that objects should be declared an enemy, and anyone providing money or shelter to the Palestinians should be declared an enemy.

Or else just walk into the sea like the muslims want.

At first I was baffled : why don't the Israelis shoot back? - The launch site is clearly visible and a few artillery shells should be able to tidy the place nicely.
But the author's explanation makes perfectly good sense: that would tend to unite them. As it is the Palestinians are busy killing each other, so let them do the job for us....

Unite them in death. Palestinians need to be slaughtered until the handful that remain are all eating ham sandwiches to show how serious they are about getting along. There is no sense loving palestinian children more than their parents and society do, unless we kill off their parents and society and raise them to be human beings ourselves.

The want to play nation, but like a feminist playing female, they refuse to accept responsibility for their actions, and everyone else is too gentlemanly to give them what they deserve.
