27-Mar-08: Guns, rockets and memory
Twenty additional rocket attacks into southern Israel on Wednesday from the terrorists in Palestinian-Arab Gaza maintained their ongoing war of terror. Two people suffered injuries and nine others needed to be treated for shock after last night's volleys into the Sderot area, according to JPost. Another rocket crashed into the backyard of a kibbutz residence in the western Negev area causing damage to buildings. YNet says Islamic Jihad, the al-Quds Brigades and the Salah a-Din Brigades all claimed credit for the attacks. Separately, Gazan gunmen fired on Israeli farmers near Kibbutz Ein Hashlosha, causing injuries. Ignored by most media channels and most opinion-makers and opinion-holders in most places, these cold-blooded attacks on Israel and on Israelis are not so quickly forgotten by those who experience them personally. Thus, the thug who organized 2002's tragic attack on a Passover night celebration in 2002 that caused the deaths of 30 Israelis, many of them in their seventies and eighties, was captured by Israeli forces yesterday in the Tulkarm area. His deeds are unlikely to be forgotten as he is processed by Israel's justice system.
