Terror Attack in Jerusalem, Grad Rockets In Beersheba Today

A bomb was left near a bus stop in front of Binyanei HaUma in Jerusalem and exploded, ironically near a kiosk with the unfortunate name of “Pitzutz shel Kiosk”  (a Blast of a kiosk).  So far one dead, 25 injured, some very seriously, mostly on the two busses stopped there. (It has been awhile since I had to call my relatives to make sure everyone was ok after hearing this kind of news. Not something that I missed).

Last night a Grad rocket was fired toward Ashkelon,  there were mortars fired into the western Negev in the morning, and two separate Grad rockets fired into Beersheva in the morning.

After years of living through periods of terror, I recognize a pattern. First the terrrorists start in a yishuv, then they branch outwards towards the cities. Eventually the IDF undertakes an operation, the terrorists get killed, along with civilians, and we get a period of quiet again.

    Agreed, although there is another step — that’s the step where the IDF responds, Palestinians die as a result of a war they’ve monged for, and then their leadership screams “war crimes” and runs to the UN demanding that Israel be legislated out of existence…
