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.

16-Sep-15: Wednesday morning rocket from Gaza is another Fell Short
A rocket attack was launched early this morning (Wednesday) from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. Like so many before it, at least one was what we call a Fell Short - crashing back to earth on the Hamas side of the border and doing some unreported harm inside the Gaza Strip. It's almost invariably the case that damage and casualties from Fell Shorts like today's go unreported. There were no reports of damage from the fallen rocket, or confirmation from Israeli officials that the launch took place. The Times of Israel, quoting the Gaza website “Gaza Now” says it landed somewhere in Deir el-Balah. (Click to see our reports of some previous Fell Shorts.)
