Report: Rockets Fired from Egypt Hit Israel

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.

I predict a work accident in the Egyptian prime minister’s near future.

Egypt may very well open a 2nd front if they sense weakness

I wonder if the 70% of American Jews who supported Obama give a damn.

Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, Morsi is the Muslim Brotherhood.

Sad to say I think America’s Christians care more for Israel than America’s Jews.

There is no doubt of that. “Never again” is just empty words for a large majority of American Jews.

Looks like the Israeli’s have their hands full.

God bless ‘em.

I don’t think the US will do much about it.

“I wonder if the 70% of American Jews who supported Obama give a damn.”

No way in Hell. They are so liberal they would demand to know just what has Israel done to upset Egypt.

They know they have four years of a “flexible” American POTUS.

More to follow.

In a sane administration, yes. But I predict that under Obama, the US Taxpayers will continue to give Billions of dollars to our enemies regardless of what they do.

There is no such thing to a peaceful resolution to the problems over there and it is 50+ years since we should have realized that fact.

Bribery only works for so long.

Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, Morsi is the Muslim Brotherhood.

And the Muslim Brotherhood is an offshoot of Hitler's Nazis.

Nope, because they’re not really Jews anymore. They are “Jews” in the sense of a fading ethnic/tribal identity, but Leftist politics replaced Judaism as their true faith long ago. If you point out that the U.N. designated “West Bank” is actually Judea and Samaria, and part of the land given to the Israelites by God, probably 9 in 10 would call you a nut and say something stupid like “no blood for oil.” I believe a large percentage of American Jews (and to be fair, Christians as well) are functional atheists if not outright worshipers of the 20th century’s favorite idol, the welfare state.

And the close associates of Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi have their daughter exactly where they want her, in the cat bird seat of U.S. foreign policy - she is the closest political staff person to Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State. Her name is Huma Abedin. Huma Abedin does not qualify for security clearance in any government job at any level and there she is sitting pretty with Hillary. If this were fiction, no one would believe it. The Islamist Fifth Column keeps getting wider and wider with women playing a big role. It looks like one of Petraeus’ lady friends, Jill Kelly from Tampa and her twin sister, Natalie Khawam, Lebanese immigrants, are very cozy with heads of Islamic countries, as well as with U.S. top brass, as well as Obama.
