Hamas Launches Independence Day Rocket Attack on Israel
6 Iyar 5767, 24 April 07 06:47by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) Kassam rockets fired by Hamas terrorists slammed into the western Negev in the early morning light of Israel's Independence Day, in a faint echo of the Arab attacks on the nascent state in 1948.
In a statement issued from Gaza City, the Izz a-Din al-Kassam Brigades, said it had fired up to 30 rockets and 50 mortar shells at Israel. The terror group said the attack was a “reaction to the continued Zionist crimes against our people in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.”
Izz a-Din al-Kassam is a military unit in the Palestinian Authority’s ruling Hamas faction.
An IDF spokesman dismissed the claim, and told Arutz-7 that only two rockets actually reached Israeli territory “north of Gaza” out of a total of six rockets that were launched.
Eight mortar shells also reached the western Negev, according to the army spokesman, although “more were launched.” The specific number of mortar shells fired at Israel was unavailable.
No injuries or damage were reported in the attacks, said the spokesman. Residents in an unidentified community in southern Israel reported some damage, according to Ynet.
IDF helicopters returned fire, shooting at the open areas in which the launch sites were identified, but hit no one. “That was not the intent,” said the army spokesman, who added the primary goal of the IDF response was deterrence. He declined further comment.
Tuesday morning’s attack was the first by a Hamas terrorist group in five months and could signal the end of the limited ceasefire with the Palestinian Authority that began last year.
The November 26th agreement called for Israel to withdraw its forces and PA terrorist groups to halt the rocket attacks on western Negev communities. Israel stuck to its promise, but more than 200 missiles have been fired at Israel from Gaza since the supposed ceasefire went into effect.
One day of Arab Style Ceasefire

Palestinian Authority terrorists in Gaza fired four rockets into the Negev city of Sderot Saturday evening.
A group of five Jews, four women and one man, was attacked in Yafo on Saturday night near an ice cream shop at the beach by ten Arab youths with sticks.
Unidentified gunmen have bombed parts of the American International School in the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Laheya .
Hamas threatens to start abducting Israelis and Jews overseas in response to Israel 's refusal to release Arab terrorists.
This week we Commemorated Yom HaZikaron , Israel's Memorial Day for the fallen Israeli soldiers and Jews murdered by terrorists and anti-Semites around the world. I can only hope that the Israel 's politicians wake up soon and end Arab terror in Israel. We can do it!
Arab Fireworks Celebration During Memorial Day . Jewish residents of Carmiel and Haifa expressed anger after local Arabs fired fireworks during Memorial Day ceremonies. Carmiel spokeswoman Leviya Fisher called it "impossible to define as an act of good neighborliness." (Arabs have not been good neighbors and never will.)
Tribute to a Hero. Among the 32 fatalities in the massacre at Virginia Tech was Liviu Librescu, a Romanian-born Holocaust survivor and engineering professor who blocked the door to his classroom with his body, giving students time to escape through the window.
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
I strongly object the current unjust profiling of potential terrorists as people of Middle-Eastern origin on the ground that Jews are also from Middle-East, but we have nothing in common with Islam-indoctrinated blood thirsty thugs. Henceforth, in order to stop terror, please be precise and call them Arabs or Muslims! Use correct identification and end the stupidity of modern political correctness!
U.S. to sell Saudis 'Smart bombs'. The United States reportedly will sell "smart bombs" to Saudi Arabia , despite Israeli objections. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said that 'moderate' Arab states need the weapons as a deterrent to Iranian ambitions. (…but they will try to use them against Israel !)
'Right of return' is Arab Political Stunt. Despite repeated calls from Palestinian leadership to Israel to validate the "right of return," a growing number of Palestinians currently living abroad have little interest in moving to the PA or Israel. "…all of the second generation Palestinians born in Lebanese refugee camps don't think about returning to Palestine or living there permanently" one said. (For 2000 years Jews have been saying "Next year in Jerusalem !" It has take the Arabs less than 60 years to forsake the land where they took temporary refuge.)
Rabbis Arrested at United Nations. New York City police arrested 22 rabbis protesting Iran 's threats against Israel in front of the United Nations. They called for Iran to be expelled from the United Nations for its threats to destroy a fellow member state. Most of them were wearing white prayer shawls and representing the denominational spectrum. (No Iranian diplomats have been arrested so far for the inflammatory speeches of their leader and his calls for the destruction of Israel !)
Olmert Declares Himself "Indestructible". ''According to opinion polls, I am not popular. I was and I will be again,'' Olmert said in an interview. ''I am indestructible. I have been here for 35 years and I have survived everything.'' Olmert's approval rating has plunged to single digits since an inconclusive war against Lebanon's Hezbollah guerrillas last year. (Meanwhile, he is destroying Israel!)
The Stupid Games They Play! Nearly $60 million in U.S. aid to the Palestinians has been cleared for transfer to the PA President. The funding comprises $43 million for 'non-lethal' training and equipment for Abbas' security forces. (Friends are tested by their actions. Training the enemies of Israel and freeing their funds for purchasing of lethal weapons is not the behaviour of the true friend! No one objects that US taxpayers money is given to terrorists who hate the Americans even more than the Jews!)
Quote of the Week:
" The real threat to continued strong American public and congressional support for close U.S.-Israel ties comes from anti-Israel bias in the major media, elite universities, and most importantly from ultra-liberal Jewish organizations like Americans for Peace Now and individual Jews who seem to have difficulties dealing with their own Jewishness. These "useful idiots," to borrow Lenin's term, legitimize scurrilous attacks on Israel by its adversaries." - by Morrie J. Amitay, Former Executive Director, AIPAC.
Even Elephants are Suffering PTSD in Israel . A seven-ton bull elephant, Yossy, charged and killed a female elephant half his weight. Oregon State University psychologist Gay Bradshaw argued that the worldwide population of elephants is suffering from a form of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
With No respect for Their Own Heritage… Iranian engineers began filling a new dam despite warnings from archaeologists that its reservoir will flood newly discovered antiquities and could damage Iran's grandest site, the ancient Persian capital of Persepolis. (Why would they respect others?)
Xenophobic Europeans at their Best. The European Union ratified a law banning incitement to or denial of genocide. The 27-nation bloc reached a compromise deal Thursday after six years of negotiations. The European Jewish Congress criticized the "Framework Decision on Racism and Xenophobia" because it did not specifically refer to the Holocaust or anti-Semitism. (It took Europeans 60 years to adopt, most likely, a non-enforceable law. There is still no condemnation of Armenian genocide committed by Turkey .)
Syria Threatens War. Syrian President Bashar Assad said Wednesday that Syria is ready for a war with Israel. "Syria grows stronger every day," Assad told the Arabic Dar Al-Hayat daily, adding that Israel is a "bitter enemy". Syrian Information Minister Mohsen Bilal said Sunday that, "If Israel rejects the Arab League peace proposal, resistance will be the only way to liberate the Golan Heights ." (With Olmert's complacency, do we really want to allow another Yom Kippur war?)
Olmert Backs Arms for PA. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's agreement on Sunday to an American plan to provide weapons and training to expanded numbers of Fatah militia members in the Palestinian Authority (PA) comes at the same time the PA is uniting Hamas and Fatah militia forces. (How much training and arms does the PA need to kill Jews? And how much more stupidity does Olmert still have to exhibit?)
Saudi Plan is Another Arab Plot.
The foreign ministers of 12 Arab states met in Cairo on Wednesday to discuss how most effectively to push for the realization of their vision for an Israel-free Middle East…
A weak leader who has turned his back on Zionism, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert recently voiced his appreciation for the Saudi plan…
The plan requires the Jewish state to surrender large parts of Jerusalem – Israel 's ancient capital – including the Old City and the Jews' holiest site – the Temple Mount so that "Palestine " can have its capital there. It also insists that Israel allow millions of Arabs who claim that they, or their parents, were driven from Israel in 1948 and 1967, to "return home."
If permitted, this "right of return" would swamp what would be left of Israel with Arabs, who would then go on to fight for their right to vote – thereby ousting the Jewish-led government and quickly seeing Israel ingested into " Palestine."
…While differences on a whole gamut of issues have long divided the Arabs, a uniting factor has always been their commitment to the eventual "cleansing" from their Muslim midst of what the press in their countries frequently refers to as "the Jewish cancer."
The current step in their strategy employs the creation of a Palestinian state on whatever parts of the Land of Israel they can obtain – either through terrorism or negotiation or a combination of both.
