AN UNTIMELY SIREN

Hamas Attacks Sderot with Missile to Mark Holocaust Day

An early warning siren wailed in the Sderot area Sunday night, hours before a nationwide siren reminds the country of the Holocaust. “The journey for justice and freedom is not yet over,” said Peres.

Gaza terrorists chose Holocaust Memorial Day to attack southern Israel with a missile that underlined President Shimon Peres’ message on Holocaust Memorial Day that “the journey for justice and freedom is not yet over.”

The rocket exploded in an open area, causing no injuries but interrupting a Holocaust Day ceremony as people scurried to a security shelter. The ceremony continued shortly afterwards.

Residents and police have not yet determined if the explosion cause property damage.

Israel responded “proportionately” last week to two rocket attacks on open areas in Sderot and the surrounding Sha’ar HaNegev region last week. The IDF bombed two terror sites without injuring anyone.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon last week repeated a years-long litany of threats that Israel will not remain silent in the face of rocket attacks.

Judging by last week’s response, Israel has not changed its policy not to upset the international community with “disproportionate” retaliation and instead continues to play Russian Roulette and wait for a Kassam missile, which has no guidance system, to fall in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    No shock. And with $900million from obama, I'm sure obama kerry abd clintion are smiling

  2. Hamas, does not know the meaning of a cease fire agreement. Kerry is promising more land for the PA, if they will just start the peace talks again? Why? The PA's objective does not look to be peace at all.

  3. Tensions on the Korean Peninsula and in Gaza are once again on the rise. Month by month, and week by week the middle east spins more out of control. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria looks like he may be willing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.
