Around 1 PM today, Hamas fired a rocket at Ashkelon. It was a new missile, an R160 – a 345mm missile with a huge warhead, that Israel had no idea that Hamas had. Its provenance is not known. It scored a direct hit on a home and two houses next to it were totally leveled. Dozens of buildings in a wide radius were damaged. 71 Israelis were wounded, 29 of them seriously. All wounded were apparently civilians.

  1. It is a terrible thing today, but I don’t think that Isreal is going to get a lot of sympathy from many anywhere across the world. The reality of most political situations is that to think of their being the ” goodies” and the ” baddies” is an immature child,s thoughts. There are only usually different perspectives and loyalties driven by ones own life experiences. Let us try to simplify it however an just for arguments sake assume that the Palestinian rocket firers are terrorists, rather than people trying desperately to defend heir population. If this is to be assumed, then you DO NOT take out terrorists by bombing civilian areas, you do it as the UK did in Ireland, by infiltrating the organisation and accurately taking out specific individuals. The terrorists in any circumstance, by simple definition, are those who indescrimanently bomb civilians. Who fits this description in this circumstance?
