    • Thank you for the RB’s….They are always much appreciated.

      It’s amazing isn’t it…That over 17.000 rockets have been fired at Israel since 2007 alone!
      Over 1,456 rockets were fired at Israel between November 14 and 21 of 2012, for a Total of 2,257 rockets had been launched at Israel from Gaza alone in 2012.
      This does not count Fatah, PLO, or Hizb’Allah rockets…

      AND….The Global Communities chastise Israel for defending herself, all because the kills are disproportionate…
      Meaning, Hamas has killed only 5 Israelis in these 2012 attacks and 15 Palestinians, including seven civilians have been killed and more than 100 people wounded, citing Palestinian medical officials.

      They complained that more PALESTINIANS DIED than Jews?
      And that there was collateral damage when the IDF and IAF responded to these attacks, to which we and the world know, that Hamas, Hizb’Allah, Fatah and the PLO all set up in civilian areas to hinder Israel responses!
