Arab Terror Becoming a Shabbat Routine

It seems that every single week when I turn on the computer after Shabbat I discover that the Arab terrorists attempted/succeeded in attacking Israel, destroying the fragile quiet (forget about the impossible to achieve peace) we desperately crave and need.

Of course the Arab terrorists choose Shabbat to attack.  They know that our defenses are down and we’re recharging our spiritual batteries. They know that the police, hospitals and army are in “Shabbat mode.” It’s no great security secret.  In 1973 when Egypt and Syria planned their well-coordinated attack to totally destroy us, they chose  the “Shabbat of Shabbatot,” the holiest day in the Jewish Calendar, Yom Kippur. Not only weren’t we ready, but our politicians running the country were fanatics in the belief that after Israel’s great victory in the 1967 Six Days War the Arabs would never attack us ever again.

Luckily God didn’t desert us, and after a very painful war we were victorious.

No doubt it’s G-d that directs the Arab missiles to miss homes and Jews during these Shabbat attacks and has them land in “No injuries were reported and the IDF was searching for pieces of the rocket.” and “No injuries were reported and the IDF was searching for remnants of the rocket. Earlier in the evening, a rocket landed in Hof Ashkelon and caused no injuries. ” That’s the phrase used time after time.

Strangely, there’s an additional report in the Jewish Press from the Taspit News Agency.

Terrorists Caught Infiltrating into Itamar Approaching the anniversary of the Fogel family massacre, the IDF caught 4 armed Arabs trying to infiltrate into the town of Itamar on Friday night.

On Friday night four terrorists were caught trying to infiltrate into the town of Itamar, in the Shomron. An IDF lookout saw four suspicious figures approaching the town and sent out a unit to search for the suspects. The IDF caught three of the infiltrators who immediately surrendered, while a fourth tried to run away and was also caught. The terrorists were armed with knives, and equipment for breaking into homes. They were brought in for interrogation. Read more here.

Why hasn’t any other site reported it?

Terrorists in Hamas-controlled Gaza fired a rocket at southern Israel on Friday evening.
The rocket exploded in an open area in the Hof Ashkelon Region. There were no physical injuries or damages. The “Red Alert” siren was heard in surrounding communities before the explosion, forcing local residents into shelters.
Rocket attacks have been on the increase in recent days, especially after Hamas gave terrorists the “green light” to open fire at Israel by withdrawing its forces that were deployed to prevent such rocket fire.
On Monday, two rockets were fired at southern Israel. The first one, on Monday afternoon, exploded in an open field near the Ashkelon coast. No physical injuries or damages were reported.
Later that evening, Gaza-based terrorists fired another rocket at southern Israel.

My gut feeling is that they don’t care. All these Arab terror attacks, successful or otherwise are just becoming too routine.  It’s  the difference between dog bites man versus man bites dog in the news world. The media loves to harp on anything that shows Jewish reactions to Arab terror and exaggerates it into alleged “Jewish terrorism,” sic.

For Israelis living in Israel’s south, Shabbat has become particularly stressful.  The Iron Dome isn’t the cure. We need to totally destroy the terrorist network until they beg us declaring their unconditional surrender, and we must accept it and take over and strictly govern them. Only that will bring us peace, true peace.
