Notice how little media coverage this gets.
Yet another rocket fired by the extremely well-endowed rocket men of Gaza was fired out of Gaza on Wednesday, April 9, in the afternoon Israel time, in indiscriminate search of Israeli victims. Any Israeli victims. This has nothing to do with Hamas fighting the dreaded IDF. It’s all about sowing terror, and killing innocent people.
Ynet reports that the Tzeva Adom (Colour Red) incoming missile warning was heard throughout the Hof Ashkelon region of southern Israel into which so many Gazan rockets have been fired in the past year.
Today’s rocket however failed to find its Israelis. Instead it crashed back into Gaza. And – as always – there is not a word in the news about who or what was destroyed.
The Gazans and their promoters like to call the enclave the most densely populated place on earth. It certainly is not that. But it is small and has many badly-housed, poor-governed people, many, many of whom are children (and both Paris and Athens have four times Gaza’s population density).
So when an indiscriminately-fired rocket packed with explosives fails to get across to the far side of the border with Israel (that’s why we call them Fell Shorts), and instead falls onto the heads of the families and neighbours of the evil men who do the firing, there is often a terrible price. See our blog of a few days ago to understand what we mean: “5-Apr-14: Home-made rockets? What damage can they possibly do??”
So what happened to today’s “Fell Short” rocket? Who knows? If we find out, we will share the results with readers.
How often does this happen? In our post of a few days ago, we referred to some statistics – some fairly scientific, some anecdotal, all based on data collection from outside the Gaza Strip since the Hamas rulers are less than co-operative on such things – which we summarize briefly:
– During a two week period in January 2014, 37% of all Gazan rockets fell short. – Between February 20 and March 5, 2104, 80% of all Gazan rockets fell short. – In the major barrage of Gazan rocket fire during mid March, 60% fell short. – In the entire month of March 2014, more than a third fell short Yes, there’s room for doubting the precision of these numbers. But there’s no room to doubt that Gazans are among the principal victims of the terror-addicted Hamas Islamists. Check out the most recent report of one of the Gaza-based Palestinian Arab human rights organizations from April 1, 2014 and count up the number of children maimed as a direct result of Hamas savagery. It goes on like this constantly.
Who cares? Certainly not the mainstream media. You won’t find this reported anywhere.
