Oh, look–enemies of the only Jewish state on the planet are up to their usual tricks. Again.
For second time on Tuesday evening, Gaza terrorists launch rocket at central Israel; Tel Aviv and Jerusalem open public bomb shelters.
Air raid sirens rang out in Greater Tel Aviv, and in Jerusalem, Kfar Saba and the Binyamina area on Tuesday evening, marking an increase in the Gazan rockets’ range, on the first day of Operation Protective Edge.
An Iron Dome battery intercepted the incoming rocket over Tel Aviv. Hamas announced it had fired four M-75 rockets at the capital. Two loud thuds were heard in downtown Jerusalem shortly after the rocket warning siren went off at 9:56 p.m. Thousands of residents entered bomb shelters, while others remained outside and in cafés.
More. It should, of course, surprise precisely no one that the Israelis might decide to fight back against those who aim to extinguish their country. But as the title of this blog post indicates, it is a near certainty that a certain group of people will respond to the news that Israel is being assaulted by claiming that somehow, and in some way, Israel has asked for it. Neither facts nor a sense of history matters to this group; the only thing that matters is the destruction of a country that happens to be a Jewish state.
Oh, but don’t dare call these people anti-Semites. They might get the vapors, or something.
