Report: Rockets Fired from Egypt Hit Israel
Weekly Standard ^ | Friday, November 16, 2012 | Daniel Halper

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.

(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.”

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.

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 Obama’s 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.

I wonder if the Palis and Egypt are trying to distract Israel so Iran can try to do some damage.

I'm sure Bibi's already thought of this, so I'm sure Israel is prepared for any conceivable eventuality.

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.

I really don't know how Israel puts up with all of this shiite. I really wish they would unleash holy hell on these monsters and end the madness.

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, ...

American's in Israel voted the other way. And remember at least 10% of them are Arab. Also, the Republican Jewish vote was suppressed by Sandy, which hit areas full of "Russian" Jews.
American Jews don't vote based on Israel and 1/3 are not fans of Israel.

Perhaps.

The Golfer-in-Chief probably has an early tee time, and most golfers like to arrive at least an hour ahead of time. He’ll 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.....

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.

Well, as long as Obama is residing at the location of the first strike, I would have to agree. /s
