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.

18-Jun-12: After this morning's terror gang incursion, rocket fire on Ashkelon
The southern regions of Israel are tense in the wake of this morning's attack by a terrorist gang that took the life of an Israeli construction crew worker. Yet another in the seemingly endless arsenal of Gazan rockets was fired at the city of Ashkelon in the past hour, exploding somewhere in the Hof Ashkelon region. There are no signs of injury or damage, according to Ynet's flash. It is also reporting on the deployment by the IDF of Armored forces - tanks - near Israel's Egypt border.
