Peace in our time continues to reign in Israel. From WND, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
Driving home fears Palestinian terror groups will use land gained by Israel’s Gaza evacuation to launch rockets deeper inside the Jewish state, two Qassams today were fired at western Negev towns as Israeli troops prepared the Gaza Strip for handover in the next few weeks.
One rocket hit the populated Negev town of Sderot, about 10 miles outside Gaza’s Gush Katif slate of former Jewish communities. Another landed in an open field just outside Sderot. The Popular Resistance Committees terror group in Gaza — made up of Fatah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants — claimed responsibility for the attack.
The Israeli Defense Forces so far has not responded to the attack, prompting Sderot’s mayor to file a complaint with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s office. Mayor Eli Moyal said Sharon previously warned rockets fired into the western Negev after Israel’s Gaza evacuation would be met with a stern response.
Knesset Member Eli Yishai today told Israel National News the rockets fired at Sderot were just an “appetizer” for what is yet to come.
“Even before we have turned off the engines of uprooting and expulsion, our fears have proven true. The dream of an end to the season of Qassams has been shattered,” Yishai said.
