The Israel Defense Forces have for years warned about Palestinian terrorist groups launching rockets under the cover of residential areas, thus placing Palestinian civilians in direct danger in addition to the Israelis they are targeting.

New video posted by the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a militant group associated with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party, took that warning to a new level, showing the moment a militant engineered a bread cart to fire a rocket.

Clever!

With such a primitive system, there’s no telling where they’ll land!

Hard to believe these people live in the region where “civilization” is said to have begun.

This why the solution remains “kill them all and don’t bother sorting them out.”

You'd have to go through the 12 steps of the grieving process.

Although you'd probably skip steps 1 through 11.

Ishmaelites are only capable of violence and destruction. They can dig tunnels for smuggling and kidnapping, and build homemade AK rifles, rockets and bread-cart launchers.

But somehow clean tapwater, electric plants, and smooth roads elude them.

But enough about Detroit.

Just kidding, Detroiters! Just a little joke there. Put down the weapons.

Even with news stories we have already now, they create titles that sound so much more explosive and bait-like.

Doesn’t Beck promise to release the explosive story that will make history or shake the foundations of the nation, or bring down this administration or something “on Wednesday”, or in “3 days”, or “on Monday”, about twice a year?

That was supposed to say ‘even with news stories that we already know’ the Blade creates headlines that sound so much more explosive and tabloid like.

When I was living in Turkey I used to love those sesame-coated bagels. In Turkey, anyway, they're called "simits." Vendors with pushcarts peddle them all over Istanbul. I'd make a point of going outside the University gate and getting some almost every day.

Now, when I visit Detroit, I try to find a Middle Eastern grocery that carries them.

Tread carefully. Detroit is probably more dangerous than Istanbul.

Those simits do sound tasty.

Well, I’m sure you get the gist. It showed a terrorista doing something to what looked like a common neighborhood bread cart. A few seconds after he walks away from it, rockets start shooting out of it. Presumably in the general direction of Israel.
