Another day, another rocket (or more)

THIS is what Hamas calls a bid for peace?:

Kassam rocket caused fire in Negev field

Hamas Bombards Southern Israel as Israelis Run for Shelter

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

( Terrorists from Hamas-controlled Gaza attacked the Negev twice Monday morning with Kassam rockets, sparking a fire and sending residents back into shelters. A rocket also struck southern Israel late Sunday night. No one was injured in the latest round of attacks that have returned western Negev residents to an eight-year-old routine of panic and trauma.

One rocket Monday morning exploded in the Sdot Negev area, setting fire to a field of cactuses. The same area was targeted shortly before midnight with a Kassam. The other morning missile attack was on the Sha'ar Negev region, adjacent to Sderot, causing no injuries or damage....

Israel has held Hamas responsible for continuing rocket fire and generally has retaliated for each attack. However, the targeted retaliation has not changed the tactics of Hamas, which simultaneously is negotiating with Israel through Egyptian mediators for another declared truce....

This is nothing new, and while Hamas continues the rocket firing, the rest of the world ignores the ongoing barrage.
