Three Israelis were killed and an 8 month old baby was critically injured in a Gaza rocket attack on the Israeli city of Kiryat Malachi. The rocket struck the top floor of a four story residential building. Ynet reports that a 4-year-old boy was moderately hurt as well “and was taken to the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon for treatment. A 1-year-old girl and another infant sustained light injuries and were taken to the Kaplan Medical Center. The girl’s father was lightly hurt as well. Ten people suffered panic attacks.”

Throughout the night Gaza rocket fire was aimed at a number of civilian areas in southern Israel’s cities and towns. Ynet reports:

“A rocket barrage targeted Ashdod, with one projectile hitting a home but failing to cause casualties. A school in Ofakim was also hit. Salvos targeted Beersheba, Ashkelon and Gan Yavne as well. Some of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.”

Additionally rockets struck Beersheba, and the Eshkol Regional Council, as Israel targeted terror sites in Gaza overnight with the launch of operation Pillar of Defense by the IDF.

According to the IDF spokesperson Twitter account, 135 rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israel in the last 11 hours alone.

    These are the predicted korbanut which Israel was forced to make to satisfy world opinion. And yet, by allowing these sacrifices to be made, Netanyahu is destroying the world. This is because it says if you save one jewish life it is life saving the entire world. Nobody ever said that the world “wants” to be saved, and as Prime ministers such as Begin and Shamir understood, nobody ever promised Israel a rose garden. The Gaza operation was started a day and three bodies late.

  • Shalom,

    We will always support Isra-El for many, many reasons. Take care of your old and young citizens. Take care of your republic and freedom. It’s being lost over here in America rapidly. We may one day have to flee. I hope you’ll take Christians or Jewish descent and Christians who are not of Jewish descent into Isra-El one day.

    America may soon not have your back. But God does. We know what will happen. He’s for you. He said if no one else will defend Isra-El, He swears by His Own Name that He will. And Isra-El, He will. His Name is Yeshua our Messiah.

    Twenty Years On, the Real and Radical Legacy of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the moral of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry has [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]

    JNS.org – Having started his career playing on his family’s pots and pans, Jewish musician Billy Jonas has maintained this homemade performance ethic while spreading his messages of simple living and environmentalism to a shared home throughout the world. After beginning in the kitchen, Jonas soon moved to the music room, where he picked up the piano, guitar, and trombone. These days, the multi-talented multi-instrumentalist plays on with pretty much anything he can find, including cans, bottles buckets, and other recycled-object [...]

    JNS.org – Sara Davidson’s The December Project is a new book that should be read by all senior citizens, and by those who hope to live a long life, for it raises a question that most of us have not been taught how to answer: What should we do in that final stage of our lives? Many of us continue working past the traditional retirement age of 65, not because we need the money and not because we find the [...]

    Why the Holocaust Occurred in Germany, and Why So Few Resisted (REVIEW)

    It’s hard to make a new contribution to the field of Holocaust studies,  but German historian Götz Aly accomplishes just that in Why the Germans, Why the Jews? His premise is that the origins of the Holocaust were rooted in the specific anti-Semitism found in Germany in the decades and centuries before World War II. Aly (who is not Jewish) seeks to prove his theory by studying only pre-Holocaust history, and tracing how the German people’s envy and hatred of [...]

    JNS.org – During the current conflict in Gaza a number of celebrities have voiced their opinions in support of either the Israeli or Palestinian positions. But others—be it during Operation Protective Edge or at other times—have gone further than simply supporting the Palestinians by actively supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, making false accusations about the Jewish state, ignoring Israel’s position on the conflict, or justifying the actions of the terrorist group Hamas. Many of these [...]

Except he didn’t actually consider it a choice. “When [our] home is in danger, there is no other way for us [but to serve [...]
