13 rockets launched into Israel; Hamas threatens more

May 15, 2007

Some of us thought that since the Palestinians were too busy killing each other over the last few days that we’d get a break.

Apparently not.

Today 13 Qassam’s were launched into Sderot, a town that has been hit by these rocketsfor years now. 18 people were wounded, including a mother and her son, when one of the rockets hit their home. Other rockets fell all over the city, including another residence and almost completely destroying an elementary school.

Hamas, who IS the government in the Palestinian Authority, has said they will continue to launch more throughout the night.

This is following the 3 rockets launched at Sderot yesterday.

I’m just not understanding how we are supposed to make peace with a government literally led by a terrorist organization.

  1. Not calling them a terrorist organization would be a good start. Declaring what Israel’s borders are and recognizing the Palestinians right to have a state of their own would help too. 🙂


  2. What else do you call a government that on the one hand says it will do all it can to stop the launch of rockets at innocent civilians and on the other hand announces it will continue to launch more?

    For the record, Israel’s government has been recognizing the right for a Palestinian state for years, as do the majority of Israelis. It’s the Palestinian government (Hamas) that says Israel doesn’t have the right to exist.


  3. […] Real Israel reports: Other rockets fell all over the city, including another residence and almost completely destroying an elementary school. […]


  4. I call them hypocrites, like every other “government” on the planet. If Hamas had some sort of monopoly on violence or the death of innocents, you might have a point. They don’t, so calling them names is just an excuse to avoid talking with them.

    What record? Can you find me any official statement where the government of Israel formally accepts the two-state solution or defines its own borders? Thanks.


  5. I don’t have any official records (though they may be out there). But there is no official record that says we DON’T. Hamas DOES. Their official charter says we don’t have the right to exist. We have gone to the table with almost every government they have had, but how do you make peace with a government who refuses to accept your right to exist?

    Israeli prime ministers have said many times – and many different PMs – that they are for a Palestinian state. Israel isn’t against talking to the Palestinians – it’s against talking to the Hamas. It spoke to the Fatah, it spoke with Arafat, but it can’t speak with Hamas, and Hamas isn’t interested anyway. They have made that extremely clear.
