This Ongoing War..
23 August '14..
Far from the scene, the indiscriminate fire of the Hamas terror forces into Israel and at anything Israeli has an almost-boring sameness about it. Thousands of firings (more than 3,500 in the past 46 days), place names that are vague and usually unrecognizable to non-Israelis, and outcomes that are usually stated as "no injuries, no damage, but that is not what the terrorists intended'.
Here is what the terrorists of Hamas did intend: the violent death of a four year-old Israeli child in his home on a kibbutz in southern Israel. Not occupied, not territories, not an act of liberation. Just a killing, a dead "Zionist", and - finally - a little child.
