Skip to comments.2 Wounded, 21 Rockets and Mortars Fired at Southern Israel
Posted on 08/24/2011 11:21:51 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Another sleepless night for the residents of southern Israel as Gaza terrorists launch at least 19 rocket and mortar attacks at communities across the region. Two Israelis were wounded in the night-long barrage, including a baby. A few minutes after midnight, three medium-range Grad Katyusha missiles were fired at Be'er Sheva. The Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted two of the projectiles, destroying them upon impact. The third landed in an open area on the outskirts of the city. No physical injuries or damage was reported. At around the same time, the Color Red rocket alert system also activated for Ofakim, sending the community's residents racing for cover. Radio announcers made it clear they wished they could provide more support to listeners who they knew were being forced out of bed, or to awaken their children, and run for cover. I want to express our solidarity and support for everyone who is sitting in the shelters and waiting for the 'all clear' tonight, said a radio announcer on IDF Army Radio. There is not much we personally can do to help tonight, other than to do our jobs, and to do them well, to help keep everyone's spirits up, to play the music and to provide information as it becomes available. We're doing the best we can.

So what to do with Ghaza, The coastal thorn? There's a simple little dance Called the six-hour war And here is how it goes:
Feint to the North By land to the East By sea to the West Join hands in the South And you're doing the six-hour war
It'll make a good movie It'll free up IDF For Hizbollah and MB And Syria naturally.
Don't wait around To react on their terms They could use chemicals Or genetically altered germs The Samson Option is pure Plan Z. Instead start with a six-hour war.
Bad rhymes, good plan.

to make line breaks. Curse you, HTML Code.
Wait, I thought this was Ramadan, the time of peace and harmony and happiness! Clearly this must be the work of angry Amish over there acting out...
Damn. I thought Hamas killed them all. Curse you, Amish militants.
Ramadan is the time for fasting, lamenting, praying and of course killing. The fasting for a whole months is what drives the Muslims to a killing frenzy, not that they need an excuse to kill every other day of the year. Look at the world data, during Ramadan more people are murdered in the name of Allah than any other time of the year.
Don’t they just fast during the day and eat after sundown?
Yes, they fast all day and feast in the evening but it usual falls on hot months and what I am saying is that the fasting is what drives them to lunacy coupled with the doctrines to kill in Islam.
“Let the Games Begin!”
I just always thought their ‘fast’ was a misnomer. A lot of people go all day without eating and eat in the evening. I’ve done real fasts where all you get is water for several days, or other fasts where all you get is juice. Their type of fast isn’t really much of a deprivation at all. The ones I knew stuffed themselves in the evening. jmo
Welcome to the Ramadan Inn. There will be no breakfast or lunch, a late supper, and you’ll be kept up all night by loud music.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
