23-Aug-12: Another two rockets are fired into southern Israel today. Situation normal.

As absurd as this is, Israel suffered yet another rocket attack around noon today. The source, as is so often the case, was the rocket men of Gaza - the horde of terrorists who sit on a mountain of weaponry and explosives and who store them in residential neighbourhoods, mosques, hospitals and schools hoping that Israel fires back at the source. Civilian hostage taking at its most cynical.

Today's rockets exploded harmlessly [source], as is so often the case, in an open area - this time, an open area in the Sha'ar Hanegev region. That's midway between the southern cities of Beersheba and Ashkelon. "Exploded harmlessly" is not what the terrorists intended. They will keep firing these explosives at anything Israeli until they hit something human and/or serious. They have no strategic objective other than to (a) terrorize and (b) inflict damage and pain on their enemy. This is it is right to call them terrorists.
