18-Apr-11: Passover approaches, and the rockets too

The Gazan terrorists are probably more tuned in to the nuances of the Jewish calendar than most people. The sense that on our side of the fence there is a family-focused festival, Passover, in which we celebrate our unique history and our struggle for freedom, is evidently hard for them to swallow.

Hence it's not entirely surprising to note that a handful of hours before Jews in Israel sit down to the Passover Seder, the thuggish jihadists honour the cycle of our communal lives by firing off another Qassam rocket from the vast arsenal with which they are equipped. This one came from northern Gaza and exploded this afternoon (Monday) in an open area close to one of the kibbutzim in the Sha'ar HaNegev region of southern Israel. Fortunately no injuries or damage were reported. Our prayers to Heaven are this will continue to be the case.
