IDF hits rocket squad in Gaza

The IDF finally retaliated against a Gaza rocket squad on Sunday afternoon - no word yet how many terrorists were incinerated.
The IDF targeted a rocket squad in the northern Gaza Strip on Sunday afternoon, Army Radio reported. There were no immediate details of the strike, which was the first Israeli retaliatory strike of the day.

The strikes came as rocket fire from the Gaza Strip that killed one man over the weekend continued Sunday morning. At least six Grad rockets were fired at Beersheba, one of which hit an empty school building, and at least one of the other Grads was intercepted by the Iron Dome rocket defense system and two landed in the Egyptian city of Rafah. There were no casualties reported in Sunday morning's attacks.

Earlier Sunday morning, four mortar shells landed in the Eshkol Regional Council area and nine rockets were fired at the Ashkelon Regional Council, one of which damaged a building. No injuries were reported in the attacks.

The Iron Dome rocket defense system also successfully intercepted three rockets fired from Gaza in the direction of Ashkelon.

At least two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip landed in the Egyptian border town of Rafah on Sunday morning, but there was no damage and no one was hurt, an Egyptian security source said.

The source said it appeared the rockets were fired in error.

Police have instructed residents of the South to remain in safe zones and to remain tuned in to instructions from the IDF Home Front Command.
How long would they put up with living that way in Tel Aviv? How long would they put up with it in El Paso? Why doesn't the government give the 'Palestinians' what they are asking for?

However many terrorists they incinerated, it wasn't enough.

Israel is a country in which it takes a massive loss of life for the government to do anything to protect the country. The Iron Dome system has become another excuse for it to do nothing.

What could go wrong indeed

Carl asks the $$million question... for Israelis, how long would the Tel Aviv Progressives sit there understanding the pain of the rocketeers if the rockets were landing in their living rooms. Or maybe they are willing to sacrifice even their own lives in order to uphold the human rights of the Gazans (and Hezzies and Egyptians, etc.) to kill Jews...

And secondly, Carl asks how long people in El Paso would sit for it. Well, another question in that arena is, How long will it be until rockets or major gunfire comes across that border at El Paso and kills Americans? And will the firing be done with equipment provided by Obama's posse? And will the Obama posse try to force the Americans to sit still for it?

Because, when you get right down to it, the vision becomes clear that whatever happens over time in and/or to Israel is heading the U.S.'s way, with the help, in both places, of Obama's posse.
