|Ashkelon: Choice target for the freedom fighters (excuse the|
deep sarcasm) of Hamas-controlled Gaza
"Relative state of calm in south breaks early Thursday as rocket hits open area; no injuries reported. Residents in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council woke up Thursday morning to siren alarm sounds. A Qassam rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel and exploded in an open area south of Ashkelon. No injuries or damage were reported."Ashkelon is a city. An Israeli city. It's not a military base. It's not a dusty, pockmarked war-zone with shanties and bomb craters. It's a place filled with ordinary civilians, and the bustle of normal, constructive, peaceful lives.
Which is precisely why the Gazan jihadists and their thuggish Hamas masters find it so hard to desist from lobbing bombs and other explosives in the general direction of its many children and kindergartens. There are no innocent bystanders or victims caught in the crossfire when it comes to the terrorists. All of us are in their crosshairs. All of us are at war with them, whether we wish it or not.
