Air raid sirens wail in Jerusalem

2012-11-16 17:42

Jerusalem - Air raid sirens have just sounded in Jerusalem, signaling a possible rocket attack aimed at Israel's capital.

If verified, it would be the first time the holy city has ever been targeted by rockets fired by Gaza militants.

Israeli media say the rocket fell north of Jerusalem, but authorities have not confirmed the reports.

According to Reuters, the armed wing of Islamist group Hamas said it fired a Qassam rocket towards Jerusalem, minutes after air raid sirens sounded.

Militants already have launched several rockets into Tel Aviv since an Israeli offensive was launched in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday.

      No one is stoping you from going to Jordan for That is your land... I find it funny that the latest rocket fired by Hamas fell on an Arab village near Jerusalem - even Allah doesn't want to give you the land. Ameen

      Israel was created in 1948 from 52% of the land formerly occupied by the Jewish and Palestinian people, and Palestine 43%. Most of the Israeli territory was the Negev Desert. Jerusalem fell into neither territory. Palestinians with their unelected, self-serving neighbors declared war on Israel the very next day. In the 1960's they even invaded Israel twice. Full military invasions. The result: Israel survived and pushed them back, gaining territory in the process. This is the origin of what you wrongly call "stealing land". There have been almost daily attacks by Palestinians, incited by their self-serving unelected backers. Palestinians even teach their children at Kindergarten to attack Israel, rather than be peaceful. Children. Kindergarten. From day one, and even today it's wage war on Israel. Israel defends herself. Yes sometimes going too far, which is unacceptable, but self-defense nonetheless. All that needs to happen is for Palestinians to choose peace side by side with Israel. This is more likely going forward now because the unelected dictators are being removed from power by their people, one by one. They will no longer use the Palestinians for their own internal political ploys.

      One group of people resented and opposed the creation of an Israeli homeland for the Jewish people after the horrors of World War II, notwithstanding that the amount of land was a tiny, minuscule slither relative to their vast lands, and Jewish people had that land inhabited for millennia. Guess which group that is.
