Rockets launched at Jerusalem on Sunday, Aug. 24, were “fired from a compound of three schools in Shejaiya” a neighborhood in Gaza, confirmed the IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner.

In response to the terrorists’ launch, the Israel Defense Force targeted the site and achieved a successful hit. The incoming rockets towards Jerusalem were intercepted by Israel’s missile defense system.

It appears the IDF has finally hit upon an effective way of communicating so that it is not always in a defensive role of after-the-fact explaining why it struck a particular target in an area in which civilians either reside or are sheltered, as has happened so many times during this and other conflicts. To wit: they immediately explain the basis for a particular site being targeted.

Now, when Said Arikat of Al Quds newspaper demands the State Department Spokesperson condemn Israel for targeting schools at tomorrow’s State Department press briefing, at least the information is already available as to why that site was struck. It may not deter Arikat or other pathological denouncers of Israel, but at least those willing to seek the facts will have them readily available.

HIGH VOLUME SUNDAY

More than 140 rockets or mortars were fired on Israel from Gaza on Sunday. The ones reaching near Jerusalem were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome defense missile system, near the city’s northern suburbs of abu Ghosh and Beit Shemesh.

One rocket fired from Gaza on Sunday landed in central Tel Aviv. No injuries or damage was reported.

One location at which Gazan rockets did result in injuries and damage was at the Erez Crossing between Israel and Gaza. Three people were injured from that mortar, two seriously. The assault resulted in the Crossing being closed.  Keep that in mind when you hear about the audacity of Israel in preventing the free flow of goods into Gaza.

    Wipe it out. They only teach hate anyway.

  4. Ok let’s set the record straight…again. The name Palestine was the name given to the land of Israel and Judea to insult the Jews that were defeated by the Romans after the destruction of the second temple and following the Jewish revolt–the one involving Masada. It’s purpose was to insult the Jews as Palestine is the Roman word for Philistine–a known Jewish enemy of the day. These were not Arabs. Back then this was known as Jewish land–it was know by all the major regimes of the day–Pharos, Persians, Philistines–and the archeological record proves this. It is a historical fact. When the Jews were expelled and spread around the world not all of them left. Millions remained. They were conquered and ruled by Crusaders, Ottomans, Turks, Jordanians, British, etc etc. But they remained. There has been a Jewish presence in Israel and in Jerusalem for thousands and thousands of years. The Jews were there before Arabs even existed as a civilization. The Jews were there before Mohammad was even born. The Jews were there and have been there for nearly all of recorded history. Mohammad didn’t get cross with them until they refused to assimilate, convert and obey his plagiarized fairy tale blasphemous fiction of a religion based upon such things as glorifying death, subjugating women, honor killings, beheadings, etc–all as a distraction designed to convert masses of weak minded people and psychopaths to cover up the rape, pillage and greed that came along with the destruction of entire cultures. The world screams that Israel is the aggressor. That is Bull**** plain and simple. Israel consists of 6-8 million Jews on a piece of land barely 40 miles wide that is surrounded by hate mongers numbering in the hundreds of thousands that are all dedicated to the destruction of every Jew on earth and the complete subjugation of all other religions and of western civilization. These people are Medieval in thinking with 21st century weapons. They raise their children to hate and to seek death as a way to get closer to God. They fight for Religion–a backwards back to the stone ages type of religion that has its eyes on the whole of the world. They can’t be re indoctrinated. They have been taught this hate since childhood and filled with a version of history that is flat false and is not supported by the historical and archeological record. They need to be neutered somehow and allowed to die out so that they cannot spread their lies to future generations like they do even today with cartoons and children’s programming glorifying death and Martyrdom. They all need to be demilitarized and placed behind walls in whatever countries they are found in or relocated to reservations and not allowed to leave so long as they embrace this dangerous ideology–until they die out. Only then will there be peace.
