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.

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.
