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.

On the 12th of May, the Zionist Executive met to decide what to do. Moshe Sharrett had just returned [...]

    JNS.org – One of the most controversial operas in recent memory, “The Death of Klinghoffer,” debuted Oct. 20 at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. The Met has scheduled seven more performances through November. The first staging did not occur without protest, as about 400 demonstrators—including Jewish communal and nationally recognized leaders—came to Lincoln Center to denounce the anti-Jewish and anti-Israel opera. “Klinghoffer,” the creation of composer John Adams and librettist Alice Goodman, premiered in 1991—with few additional stagings.
