A series of rocket sirens shattered the quiet night in Israel, as rocket attacks from Gaza resumed early on Tuesday morning.

Sirens were heard across the Gush Dan region, the Shfela region and in coastal cities Ashkelon and Ashdod. Residents in communities bordering Gaza also awoke to Code Red alerts.

A rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome system over Gush Dan, while another slammed into an apartment building in Ashkelon, causing damage to several homes. No injuries were reported however

117 rockets yesterday, and 30+ in the last forty five minutes. Rockets being fired from both Gaza and Lebanon, while the belt around Gaza is under constant mortar fire.

Meanwhile, the only thing I see in US Media about it is Israel hitting an apartment building in Israel, and some reporter doing a "Rubble Bucket Challenge" in support of Gaza.

You liked the “rubble bucket challenge” thing, huh?

Israel should relocate all these people to Turkey. Once and for all.

“Rockets being fired from both Gaza and Lebanon...”

I hate to hear they are coming from Lebanon now. That means rockets on two sides of Israel. Israel has fought to exist since they became a nation. Islam killers won’t stop until they annihilate Israel but it cannot happen due to God’s protection.

Where the groupies killed the blues..

Onward marching to the “Rock of Ages”
Torn off pages from a magazine
Soldiers fading from the Earth degrading
Sun’s lost out to margarine

Kingdoms, empires read in tea leaves
Everybody fold your hands upon your heads
And hear the news
Somebody somewhere somehow sometime
Looked behind the arass
Where the groupies killed the blues

Heavy sounds in the summertime - ooh -
Chicago learns that black is black
Heavy ground all along the Berlin line
Humpety Dumpety won’t go back
Poni Mai?

Classrooms and Sunday school
Where Jesus saved the world
Kingsize and extra cool
And when the smoke unfurled
Straight lanes of lemon trees
Where Palestine prayed on its bended knees
To mankind

Subway moonlight for a flight of fancy
To a smiling face gone underground
Advertising ‘stead of law revising
Pay your money, stick around

Pilgrim soldiers on a trip to nowhere
With a one way ticket in their hands
Soap suds sliding to the foam crest riding
Palestine: Whose Promised Land?

Wait, Lebanon too? Ground Gaza and Lebanon into ash. The world will be a better place.

Yep. It’s not tasteful, and it’s a shame. But it needs to happen, otherwise we are just delaying the inevitable outcome of this. Israel or them. Easy answer.

I’m just waiting for Israel to declare the Gaza experiment a failure and take it over again. Or, let Gaza become a full-fledged state, and when the country of Gaza launches one mortar into Israel, Israel declares war on it and wipes Gaza out.

They should be relocated by unrelenting carpet bombing and large bulldozers to the bottom of the Mediterranean.

About bedtime last night I took a quick check of Chicom News CCTV9. It was noon in Peking and just before dawn in Gaza. They had an absolutely beautiful live shot of a high rise building in Gaza getting hit with what must have been a bunker buster. The whole building started to glow, then turned into a smokestack full of sparklers. The Israelis hit two that way and they must have hit a mother lode. Still haven’t seen anything but miscellaneous trash on domestic TV.

Not good, rockets from Lebanon is an escalation. Will Israel now have to go into Lebanon to wipe out the rocket launchers?

It’s very strange. I wrote nearly the exact same thing before deleting it thinking I was over the top- again.

No...that’s not “over the top”. It is logical given the history of the insane hamazians.

That should have already happened, as the dirtbags elected Hamas. They should now wear it.

I'd like to see them bulldoze it up into "Mount Palestine" and put a huge Star of David on top of it.
