Sderot hit by seven Kassams; day care center evacuated

Sderot was hit by seven Kassam rockets today, one of which landed in the courtyard of a day care center. No one was seriously injured but twelve people, including some of the babies in the day care center, were evacuated in shock (picture at top left). In response, parents pulled their children out of schools around the city. Today was the second day of the school year for the public schools.
Although no casualties were reported from the rocket barrage, Sderot parents were not taking any chances. Batya Katar, head of the Sderot Parents Association, said parents were pulling all 2,500 of the town's students out of school.

"Buses are already on the way to pick up students who haven't been taken home already," Katar told AP by telephone, the voices of panicked parents audible in the background. The government promised to move students out of the city if there was an escalation in Palestinian rocket fire, she said.

"This is an escalation, but there is no sign of any solution," Katar said.
Ms. Katar is wrong. There is a solution: to send the IDF into Gaza to root out the terrorists. The government refuses to implement that solution. Instead, it wants to use the IDF to expel Jews from their homes in Judea and Samaria.

Sderot's parents should not send their children back to school. Instead, they should take their children and come to Jerusalem and sit outside the Prime Minister's office until he either sends the IDF into Gaza or resigns. And the rest of us will join them. Only mass demonstrations will unseat the baboon in the Prime Minister's office. Will anyone lead the demonstrations?
