Drumbeat of Terror Goes On But Most Don’t Realize

Unless you are very determined, and even if you feel very connected to events, it's near impossible to get a meaningful sense of the sheer terror of living within range of the rocket men of Gaza.

It’s just after ten in the morning here on a bright, warm Autumn morning. A delightful, breezy day.

Unless you are very determined, and even if you feel very connected to events, it’s near impossible to get a meaningful sense of the sheer terror of living within range of the rocket men of Gaza. The thugs of the Hamas-dominated enclave are armed to the teeth with a rocket arsenal that numbers in the tens of thousands… and growing.

The sheer volume of the ongoing attacks is mind-numbing, and therefore of so little news value that it’s ignored – up until the point when the Gazan Palestinian Arabs get lucky and kill someone. And even then, awareness is minor unless Israel’s defensive measures exact innocent lives and the reporters and editors go back into teeth-gnashing mode.

In the past hour [9:00-10:00 a.m.], we know of these incoming rockets:
Sha’ar Hanegev at 09:00 am [4 rockets in a single barrage: source]
Sha’ar Hanegev at 09:20 am
Hof Ashkelon at 09:35 am
Shaar Hanegev/Sderot at 09:50 am
Sdot Negev at 10:00 am
These come on top of the terrorist (meaning entirely indiscriminate) rocket attacks from earlier in the morning. We reported on those [“29-Oct-12: Wild, turbulent night and not because of a hurricane“] a couple of hours ago. And they will surely be followed by more.
What’s it like to be at ground zero when one of these rockets is fired at you? Click the image below for a taste.

About the Author: Frimet and Arnold Roth began writing and speaking publicly soon after the murder of their fifteen year-old daughter Malki Z"L in the Jerusalem Sbarro massacre, August 9, 2001 (Chaf Av, 5761). They have both been, and are, frequently interviewed for radio, television and the print media, including CNN, BBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Al-Jazeera, and others. Their blog This Ongoing War deals with the under-appreciated price of living in a society afflicted by terrorism which, they contend, means the entire world. Frimet is a native of Queens, NY while her husband was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. They brought their family to settle in Jerusalem in 1988. They co-founded the Malki Foundation in 2001 and are deeply involved in its work as volunteers. They can be reached at thisoingoingwar@gmail.com .
