While the US "debates" (ie is bullied, but I digress) into passing a gazillion dollar "stimulus" package that most Americans don't want, in Israel rockets continue to fall. And yes, Hamas continues to STEAL aid and goods headed for Gaza. The UN continues to wring its collective hands and "tsk tsk", and every day Israelis wait for the Code Red Alert. The pictures above are taken from Double Tapper. He is in Israel, and he has plenty to say, and more pictures on this specific post. He is on my blog roll now. Take some time to go read what he has to say. Here.
As always, Monkey in the Middle has a finger on the pulse of what is really happening in Israel:
Friday, February 6, 2009
On January 17, 2009 Israel stopped Operation Cast Lead so that Barack Obama's inaugural would be free from riots over the action. Hamas claimed that they too would cease-fire. But like everything a Palestinian says, it is just a lie to deceive the useful idiots in the Western Media. A cease-fire means both sides stop their attacks, not just one.
Used with permission from the Sderot Media Center:
Grad rockets return to Ashkelon: Rockets Continue to Strike Israel in February
Palestinian rocket fire against Israel continued throughout the first week of February despite the unilateral ceasefire declared by Israel and Hamas two weeks ago on Sunday, January 18.
Around 18 Qassam rockets and mortar shells were fired from Gaza and struck Israel on Sunday February 1. Four of the mortar shells exploded in the Sha'ar Hanegev region of the western Negev, injuring three Israelis including two IDF soldiers and one civilian. Three other rockets struck the Eshkol region, with one rocket landing between two kindergartens. No injuries or damages were reported.
On Monday evening, February 2, the Tzeva Adom sounded in the city of Sderot. The Qassam landed in open fields outside Sderot, reportedly wounding no one and causing no damage....
And you KNOW there is more...As Monkey in the Middle asks:
Again I turn to you and ask:Monkey in the Middle is also on my blogroll, and has great posts up all the time. Go read the rest of this piece here.
How long would your government allow rockets to be fired into your community, your town? How long do you think any government would allow such attacks on their citizens? And if you did strike back, would the world call you a terror nation for doing so?
No, of course...
