Days and nights in southern Israel have been punctuated by a growing number of sirens and rocket explosions, with over 60 rockets striking Israeli cities and communities this past week. On Monday morning alone, 55 Qassam and mortar shells were fired from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip on the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah. The rocket strikes damaged buildings, properties and a kibbutz petting zoo that is usually filled with children, but was empty because of the early morning hour.

The most effective punches by Republican VP challenger, Congressman Paul Ryan, came in the first few minutes of Thursday night's debate, over the murder of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. He was correct on the facts – the Administration was concealing the truth about the attack on our Benghazi consulate.

But, alas, Ryan was unable to hone his quick advantage into a devastating punch that could, possibly, leave his opponent staggering for the remaining 80 minutes or so.
