Posted on 11/16/2012 7:52:43 PM PST by upchuck
Two major Israeli newspapers are reporting that rockets fired from Egypt have hit Israel.
"Terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula launched rockets into Israel Friday night," reports the Jerusalem Post. "The rockets fell near an Israeli village on the southern border, causing some damage, but no injuries."
The Israeli daily Haaretz reports, "Rockets fired from direction of Egypt toward Eshkol Regional Council."
It appears no damage was reported in connection with the rocket fire from Egypt. Earlier today, the Egyptian prime minister visited Gaza to express solidarity with the Palestinians there.
This new front comes a day after a rocket landed near Tel Aviv and on the same day Israel's capital Jerusalem was the target of rocket fire. Those attacks were courtesy of Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
"After Tel Aviv metropolitan area, capital under fire too: An air raid siren was sounded in Jerusalem and surrounding communities early Friday evening. After residents reported hearing blast sounds, security forces confirmed that one rocket had landed in the Gush Etzion area near a Palestinian village," Ynet reports.

Here comes that Hopey Dopey Changey “Piece In the Middle East” Barry Benghazi and Mrs. Slick Willie got for us. LOL!
Is Huessein sleeping???
Meanwhile, back at the ranch with Roy, Dale and Barry ....
(Reuters) - “U.S. President Barack Obama called Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi on Friday to commend the country’s efforts to help calm the situation in Israel and Gaza and underscored his hope of restoring stability there, the White House said.”
I think he’s watching that Lincoln movie tonight...don’t bother him!
I can’t remember who has the FR popcorn concession, but I need to order a bunch.
Here we go. Hang on.
The Arab Spring has sprung.
I just want to know what Susan Rice has to say ...
If Israel finds U.S. weapons from Benghazi being used against it, would they have a reason to invade Libya? I know, I know, but I can always hope.
it has to do with some movie or something...
Exit polls indicate that 70 percent of Jews voted for President Obama, compared to roughly 39 percent of white voters overall.
As usual, most attention on the Jewish community has been focused on whether Obamas 70 percent Jewish support represents a serious decline from the either 78 percent or 74 percent (depending on the source) that he received from Jews in 2008.
A youtube video of South Park angered the Egyptians, and so they retaliated.
Wasn’t Obama just congratulating Egypt?
Thanks. I knew that had to be the reason.
I'm sure Bibi's already thought of this, so I'm sure Israel is prepared for any conceivable eventuality.
"What! The bacon cheeseburger has bacon in it? Death to the infidels!"
Meanwhile, back at the ranch with Roy, Dale and Barry ....
LOL! I even remember Grandpa, Sugar-Babe, Luke, Little Luke and Pepino. The real McCoys are now McCain, Mooshele, Barry, Eric and Biden.
I’ve missed Rage Boy.
Obama getting almost 70% of the Jewish vote opened the door.
A lot of firsts this time.... this thing’s gonna blow....
Time for Israel to go super-asymmetrical, since no conventional help can be expected from us or any of the West.
Yes, he was—see my #5, copied and pasted from an FR article on the preceding page.
I wonder if our Cipher-in-Chief knew about what’s set forth in this article: “Earlier today, the Egyptian prime minister visited Gaza to express solidarity with the Palestinians there.”
How is this trying to trying to “calm the situation in Israel and Gaza”?
Then the PM skedaddled back to Cairo in order to miss being rocketed?
In any event, it doesn’t matter. This administration isn’t accountable for anything. I keep forgetting.
“no conventional”.... key words in your statement.
Roll through Gaza
Retake the Siani as a buffer
Move to the west bank and ask those monsters if they are ready to behave.
Lather, rinse, repeat for Syria, Lebanon, ...
“I keep forgetting.”
The Israelis have super electronic warfare caps unlike any seen deployed to date...these areas are going to soon become powerless blacked out communicationless no man lands...good luck to the civilians trapped in there...the 14th century mullahs will have everyone right where they want to be...
IMO the Egyptians will be wishing they had stuck with Mubarak....
He is so much like Lincoln. Except he is black, incompetent, and hates America. Other than that, you could not tell them apart.
Then do it now. Any other country complains, take them on a 7th century permanent vacation, too.
It is only a coincidence that Obama was on the phone with Egypt earlier today.
The Golfer-in-Chief probably has an early tee time, and most golfers like to arrive at least an hour ahead of time. Hell probably check in at the pro shop, then hit a warm up bucket and try to be at the first tee at least 10 minutes before his tee time.....
I have to admit, I have no idea what that is...
Israel has to attack both Egypt and wipe Gaza off the map. I believe that if Iran joins the fight that the US will destroy Iran. King Obama will have no choice because America will be attacked next.
Well, they did miss that fulfillment of prophecy thing concerning the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, so it comes at no great surprise that many are wandering in a spiritual wilderness yet today...
Now as for the Israelis- they appear to be more hip to what is actually happening.
last time around it was a 6 day war, rumor has it Israel had Hertz rent a tank’s and got the one week special....
I wouldn't bet on that. He's already told the world that we can absorb a first strike.
A few more to your list: muslim, racist, communist and may not be a citizen.
On the positive side, they are both tall and have difficult wives.
Strange Lincoln - Obama Coincidences
That’s the former governor of West Virginia, Ebenezer J. McCoy. He was shot to death at age 89 by a jealous husband.
Well, as long as Obama is residing at the location of the first strike, I would have to agree. /s
