Roth - Another rocket launched at southern Israel by the Gazan terror squads
This Ongoing War..
04 June '12..
Around 1:45 this morning (Monday), and following on from the earlier rocket attack during Sunday night [we posted on that here: "4-Jun-12: Gaza's rocket men are firing them off into Israel again tonight"], the rocket-equipped terror squads of Gaza fired their deadly weaponry again in the direction - as always - of anything, but anything, Jewish on the map of Israel. The report we saw (in Hebrew) says it exploded in an open field in the Eshkol region, same as a few hours before. No injuries, no damage but the intention of the men with the explosives is to achieve much more than that. They, after all, belong to what foolish and mischievous political naifs in almost every part of the world (this South African group, for instance) call the “alliance of resistance”, in which they are partnered with the humanitarian giants of Syria, Iran and Hezbollah.
We're nauseated by the notion that terrorist groups armed to the teeth and beyond with rockets numbering in the tens of thousands and all pointed at our homes, are anyone's idea of a resistance. So long as there is confusion on this scale about what constitutes terrorism, there is little chance it is going to be stopped.
During May, Israel absorbed 81 terrorist attacks on its people and land, compared with 70 in the month before (source: the Israeli Security Agency). Especially noticeable was the rise in the hurling of fire bombs (Molotov cocktails) at Israeli drivers and their passengers on the roads. Some 50 attacks happened in May in Judea and Samaria (36 in April). All but two involved the use of explosives. Terror attacks originating in Gaza were at the same level as the month before. Eight Israeli victims of these attacks suffered significant injuries.

I visited Hevron in November 2000 after the outbreak of the Rosh Hashanah War to see what could be done to assist in the face of the growing daily attacks on the community. After returning to work for the community in the summer of 2001, a bond and a love was forged that grows to this day. My wife Melody and I merited to be married at Ma'arat HaMachpela and now host visitors from throughout the world every Shabbat as well as during the week. Our goal, "Time to come Home!"
