Report: Rockets Fired from Egypt Hit Israel

Home - by - November 17, 2012 - 01:38 America/New_York - 40 Comments

The Weekly Standard

Two major Israeli newspapers are reporting that rockets fired from Egypt have hit Israel.

“Terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula launched rockets into Israel Friday night,” reports the Jerusalem Post. “The rockets fell near an Israeli village on the southern border, causing some damage, but no injuries.”

The Israeli daily Haaretz reports, “Rockets fired from direction of Egypt toward Eshkol Regional Council.”

It appears no damage was reported in connection with the rocket fire from Egypt. Earlier today, the Egyptian prime minister visited Gaza to express solidarity with the Palestinians there.

This new front comes a day after a rocket landed near Tel Aviv and on the same day Israel’s capital Jerusalem was the target of rocket fire. Those attacks were courtesy of Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

    0bama & the Moslim Botherhood are to blame.

    Israel has to deal with avg. 2000 rockets fired by islamic savages every year. They target children.

    islam is the inspiration behind every terrorist and their evil deeds, 0bama included.

    Unleash those awesome Merkavas and the Kfirs/F-16s/F-15Es. JP reported that Iron Dome battery in the south downed 99 rockets today.

    Iron Dome is an effective, truck-towed mobile air defense system developed by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. , known as RAFAEL or Rafael, (also spelled as Raphael or Rephael; Hebrew acronym of “Authority for the Development of Armaments” – רשות לפיתוח אמצעי לחימה) is an Israeli defense technology company. It was founded as Israel’s National R&D Defense Laboratory for the development of weapons and military technology within the Ministry of Defense.

    Bad Brad — Iron Dome is Israeli produced mobile system capable of intercepting 155mm artillery and short range rockets. They learned their lesson in i967 when French cancelled delivery of 50 Mirage fighters. They decided to build their own defense arsenal. The Merkava V may be the best main battle tank in the world and is made in Israel.

    I have often wished that we had a leader with the moral fiber and backbone exhibited by Netanyahu.
    Israel has been blessed with some great leaders in trying times – Sharon, Dayan, and Meir.

    I remember an image of Maj.General Sharon sitting on the hull of a tank as it advanced in the Golan Heights – he was pounding his fist on the tank.

    Can you picture our Prez Pantywaist doing such a feat?

    it’s funny how obama was just urging egypt to intervene a day or two ago, then they turned around and blamed israel for “acts of aggression against humanity” and support gaza instead

    no surprise that this has been orchestrated by a man with the middle name hussein

    Israelis wouldn’t have to contend with Egyptians (in addition to Hezbollah and Hamas) if the Obama Administration had supported Mubarak, and yet Jews turned out in droves (both in Israel and in the USA) to keep the Obama Administration in place. Go figure.

    In fact, to expand on those points, it could be said legitimately that, whereas the Middle East was stabilized when the Bush Administration left office, the Obama Administration has [completely] destabilized the [entire] Middle East, and with the acquiescence of Jews with respect to those dynamics, also.

    Wild ‘n crazy, mixed up kids, those Jews.

    It’s all about Communism, folks, or, if you wish, you can call it Socialism, although it isn’t.

    The Jews, the Obamas, the Clintons, the Axelrods, the Pelosis, the Reids and their ilk are all in bed together to advance Communism with a maniacal belief that the ends will justify the means; e.g., to their screwy way of thinking, it will be okay if, for the time-being, a budding Communist state is controlled by Muslim fanatics, because the Jews, Obamas, Clintons, etc,, are crzy enough to believe that, someday, they will be able to control those fanatics, who are just a means to an end.

    The Jews haven’t learned anything in 3,000 years; e.g, without any scruples, they will form any alliance with anybody which they consider to be necessary to enure their own self preservation; e.g., their initial cooperation with Nazis and Soviets, until they fell off and got eaten by the tigers on which they were riding, not that they learned anything from their bad judgment in those instances, as is evidenced by the unholy alliance that those insufferble know-it-alls have formed with Obama, Clinton, etc. (To be continued)

    Get a grip. Anne wasn’t exactly cursing Israel, Mountain Dog.

    Although I will say that anyone from the USA who has been to Israel might consider it to be more of a curse or a punishment than a gift or a reward from God.

    Few places on earth are more dreary or more depressing.

    In fact, not even the most zealous of Jewish zealots could ever, for example, visualize Julie Andrews on the Golan Heights singing that the hills are alive with the sound of music, no, not even with garlands of flowers draped over the claymore mines.

    I’d move to Israel in a heartbeat rather than live in a country controlled by a bunch of self-destructive emasculated cowards who are willingly rolling out the red carpet for terrorists and sharia law. And giving 0bama a pass for treason to boot.
    At least Israel has a real man for a prime minister. They have God’s blessing and all the trouble that comes with it according to what is written in His book.

    America is sinking like the Titanic because of the curse, not the blessing.
