Many people lack a factual understanding of events in our region because the media report them inadequately. We blog here because our daughter Malki, murdered at the age of 15 in a restaurant massacre in Jerusalem, was a victim of jihadist hatred and barbarism. For jihadism and terrorism to end in Israel, New York, Madrid, London and everywhere else, people first need to understand the scale on which it is happening and why. This ongoing war is killing us.

20-Mar-11: And now come the heavy Gazan rockets fired into Israel
Ashkelon from the air
Today may be Purim, an otherwise happy festival day. But we happen to be in the midst of a steady escalation of violence and aggression from the Hamastan terrorists of the Gaza Strip. This evening (Sunday) after several days of intense mortar fire, a Grad-class rocket fired from Gaza exploded in the southern Israeli coastal city of Ashkelon. Several Israelis suffered shock. Ynet says an elderly woman was injured while attempting to take cover. No damage was reported. There's little doubt this is not the end of the matter.
