Qassam rocket hits Israeli military base

Remember when I wrote last month that the Qassams being fired into the Sderot region of Israel from Gaza were inefficient weapons that caused more emotional terror than physical? Well, early this morning one hit an IDF base, wounding 69 troops and critically injuring one soldier.

Hamas issued the expected response: “We consider this a victory from God for the resistence.”

Whose God? Not mine, though my understanding of the Abrahamic faiths is that we all begin with the same singular God. If only we could have all stayed there.

My friend Robert J. Avrech at Seraphic Secret renews his call for Israel to respond by cutting the power to Gaza.

There is no reason for Israel to enable her blood enemies. The so-called Palestinians have received more foreign aid than any other country on the face of the earth. They could have used the money to build an infrastructure, to build an electrical power grid—instead of relying on Israel, their enemies, for electricity. 

Instead, the so-called Palestinian leadership stole the money, or used it to buy weapons to kill Jews. But mostly the PA leadership just pissed away billions upon billions of dollars on the most corrupt thugogracy the world has ever seen.

Last week, Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered his charges to look into the legal ramifications of cutting supplies to the Gaza Strip. I, however, anticipate nothing short of a major ground operation will alter the militants’ actions, which have been ongoing for six years. And I don’t expect that to happen any time soon.

L’Shana Tovah.
