14 Rockets Pound S. Israel on Wednesday

kass2.jpgIt has all been said already yet for southern residents, it is not just a matter of being neglected, treated as second-class citizens, but their daily reality presents new life-threatening dangers and it appears that no one in the government seems to be paying attention.

Southern area residents are incapable of understanding how their defense minister continues to speak of a cease-fire, release verbal threats of a possible retaliatory military strike, yet their lives have reverted back to living in a war zone.

No less than 14 rockets struck southern areas on Wednesday, and Baruch Hashem, it was another day of miracles, no physical injuries. The rocket attacks are barely newsworthy, having become regular occurrences.

Nevertheless, there is an increasing number of residents who are indeed becoming victims of the hysteria and psychological stress, with a growing number of area residents unable to function properly, experiencing sleep disturbances, growing increasingly anxious when they are compelled to go outdoors, and this does not begin to address the fears of smaller children making their way to and from school. The renewed rocket attacks have also resulted in a cessation of any and all social activities and functions.

In a related matter, on Sunday, the IDF Homefront Command will conduct a major preparedness exercise in the Greater Sderot Area. Regional emergency service personnel will also take part in the exercise which will assess the area’s ability to address a major emergency situation. One of the main purposes of the exercise is to assess the ability of area residents to remain in secure rooms and bomb shelters for extended periods of time.

It should be pointed out that homes in the Shar HaNegev area do not have secure rooms and this is also the case in a number of other areas included in the major training event.

  1. While the Arabs get a free pass to lob rocket after rocket at southern Israel, Israeli Police led by the corrupt governemnet of Olmert beat and punish Jewish settlers at home in Chevron.
    Hashem Yirachem!

  2. yes the government is too busy removing jews from legally purchased propreties that they can’t be bothered with protecting the Jews in the South. And they claim that it is all in the name of democracy.

  3. Negotiating and appeasing terrorism has led to the terror bed in Gaza. President Bush has been urging Olmert (who is busy counting the greenbacks in envelopes)be a man and fight a winning battle. The future with Iran and the EU set against Israel will be hardrock compared to this child’s play.
    It truly has to be understood, when the Israeli government voted (with the help of many religious parties) and agreed to a 2 state situation in Israel, the ENEMY became a PARTNER, not an entity to fight against.
