Gaza Terrorists Pound Southern Israel With 45 Rocket Attacks – 1 Dead

Israeli soldiers carry the coffin of First Sgt. Moshe Naftali, 22, during his funeral at the Mt. Herzl cemetery in Jerusalem, Friday, Aug. 19, 2011. Gaza militants launched barrages of rockets deep into Israel early Friday and Israeli aircraft struck targets in the Palestinian territory in the aftermath of the deadliest attack against Israelis in three years. Gunmen who appear to have originated in Gaza and who crossed into southern Israel through the Egyptian desert ambushed civilian vehicles traveling on a remote road, killing eight people. Six were civilians, and two were members of Israeli security forces responding to the incursion. (AP/Bernat Armangue)

Terrorists in Gaza fired 45 rockets into Israel in the last two days. One person was killed when a grad rocket hit Be’er Sheva on Saturday.
Arutz Sheva reported:

Gaza terrorists bombarded cities in Israel’s southern region Saturday night. One person was killed when a Grad rocket hit Be’er Sheva, and another two were critically wounded. Four others were wounded as well, and are in serious-to-moderate condition.

Earlier in the day a 4-month-old baby, a 20-year-old man and 9-year-old boy were among those wounded when a Grad Katyusha missile fired by Gaza terrorists struck a home in Ofakim.

In total, terrorists have fired 45 rockets since Thursday night, wounding a total of 22 people. Four are in serious condition, suffering life-threatening wounds.

The Iron Dome system has shot down some rockets. On Saturday night it took out a rocket aimed at Be’er Sheva.

    Why do I suspect that Obama secretly enjoys these murders?

    This how smart diplomacy is measured, the body count. Hillary kissed arafats wife and obama faces mecca when he prays.

    Prophesy Watchers know that Psalms 83 is just around the corner. Gaza, Lebanon, Egypt and Syria will attack. Pray for Israel and the safety of the Jewish people.

    This is all to distract from the home countries problems:
    Gaza, tool of the Jihadest.
    Lebanon, Hariri indictment.
    Eygpt, MB takeover.
    Syria, protests.

    But Israel need to apologize, right?

    “The only good Jew is a dead Jew” Samantha Power and Susan Rice cheer. The presidunce is on the links but issued a statement through Jay Carney “My give-a-damn is broke when it comes to those troublesome Israelis.”

    Not to diminish this story but in other terrorist related news, the Verizon union thugs on the east coast are going back to work, without a contract.

  • jainphx

    Worse is coming! Israel will and must defend themselves, and the best defense is a good offense. Go get them Bibi, hold nothing back, except an apology.

  • You know even cheap rockets aren’t cheap… where are they getting the money for all these attacks?

    I mean I have some pretty good ideas, but wouldn’t you think at least ONE legacy media outlet would wonder?

    israel you are in our prayers. 2012 will be here before you know it, and once again you will have an administration supportive of you. one and done just like jimmy carter for this anti-semitic clown.

    btw that would help with the deficit, since we’re giving

    45 rockets…

    …one dead.

    Incompetence, thy name is Islam. Praise God for making them almost dumber than monkeys.

    Were it not for the (near-complicit) incompetence of Reno, Clinton, and Gorelick, 9/11 would have ended with 12 terrorists either incarcerated or dead, before they ever boarded their flights.

    And “Fakestinians” better thank God (the God of Israel, that is, not their pathetic, imbecile-creating, demonic moon-god) that Israel is the most patient, longsuffering, forbearing nation which has ever existed. Because if Israel launched 45 missiles, there would be thousands of dead Muslims, and NONE would miss their target.

    “Death to the Juice!”

  • Taqiyyotomist

    I mean it, really and truly.

    You Muslims are almost dumber than monkeys. It’s as if all 3 billion of you (or is it 4 billion this week?) are sharing one brain cell.

    If there is such a thing as the opposite of a supercomputer, the total combined brain-power of the entire Muslim male population would have it beat in terms of stupidity and incompetence.


  • pst314

    There is no moral reason for Israel not to kill every terrorist…and every terrorist supporter.

    I seem to recall that Hussein wanted to send 900 Million dollars to Gaza to re-build after the war with Israel…I’m not sure how much actually got there but I think its safe to say the for the first time in history American dollars are funding terrorists to war with Israel…

    You are absolutely correct. Very soon.

    All you so-called conservatives who think, with your superior wisdom and brain-power, that the Bible is untrue…

    …pay attention. As Paul said to the Romans — your wisdom will be unmasked as foolishness.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    When this multi-pronged attack against Israel is defeated by clearly supernatural means, watch as NASA and the world’s mass media all unanimously proclaim it to be the work of SPACE ALIENS!!


    Or something to that self-deceiving, and willfully ignorant effect.

    If Israel decides to do this, watch as God says, “You know what? You can handle it on your own? Ok. Bye bye!”

    The Muslims surrounding Israel are nearly completely missing their targets for a reason — a Very Good reason.

    See this, or decide to not see this. One day, you will realize that you should have seen this.

    How come the IDF nev er gets some Katayushas? theyare portable, being 16 to 48 launchers on a truck bed and while not terible accurate, would be an adequate response. This is why the Palis never want to be a state. Because they could have their butts handed to them on theworld stage or supported by those states. More formal, like a declaration of war.
    Or then again,the Israelis could just turn off all the electricity, gas and water as I believe is comes from Israel.There has to be some kind of response, the Palis would expect it.

  • RKflorida

    Over 80 Rockets now. Very bad stuff. Israel cabinet met with Binyamin Netanyahu at midnight Israeli time. Looks like they are very serious. The Home Defense Minister said there would be retaliation against Hamas.

    Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;


    I previously posted about the Comet Elenin and how when the earth, sun and comet were aligned mega-earthquakes occurred on the Earth. Several people have contacted me about this comet wanting additional information. I posted below two websites that give great information.

    The fact that when this comet was aligned with the sun and earth powerful earthquakes occurred really has my attention.

    There is something unusual about this approaching comet. The fact that in September it will be between the Earth and sun and in alignment REALLY has my attention because this is at the exact time the UN will be discussing the creation of a Palestinian state and dividing Jerusalem. If this comet can cause earthquakes this certainly would be the time for judgment.

    The current situation with the Comet Elenin is that it crossed behind the Earth’s orbit on August 3 while it enters Venus’ orbit on August 21.

    September 11, it makes its closest approach to the sun. If this comet has a tremendous magnetic field there should be signs in the sun.

    September 21,22, it makes a perfect alignment with the Earth, Venus and sun. This is significant because the Palestinians will make their formal appeal to the United Nations on September 20.

    September 27, 28,29, the comet makes it transit across the sun. This is the time the UN will be voting for a Palestinian state, and it could occur on the biblical feast of Rosh Hashanah!

    On September 27, there will also be a perfect alignment with the sun, comet and Earth.
    October 17, the comet is closet to Earth as it crosses in front of the Earth’s orbit.

    We will know in about a month if this comet is judgment on the earth. Once again, the fact it aligns with the Earth and sun during the UN voting and the Biblical Fall feasts really has my attention.

    The Comet Elenin Time line

    This is excellent information showing what happens when this comet lines up with sun and earth. I already posted on this, but this article gives detailed information on the earthquakes that occur when there was alignment.

    Comet Elenin Database – Part 2 of 2 – May 1, 2011 – August 17, 2011

    This is by far the best website that I have found giving information about the Comet Elenin. If you are interested take the time to go through this. I found such great information.

    The following verse is going to happen just prior to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. The people living at this time are going to be in terror as the Earth appears to be out of its’ orbit and something must have caused this. There are going to be signs in the heavens which are going to terrify people.

    Isaiah 24:20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

    Much is about to take place which will rattle us all. Rampant FlashRobberies and FlashBeatings will soon be seen as the “halcyon days” of a peaceful past.

  • saveus

    Jihadist Doctors- Zuhdi Jasser on Fox and Friends

    Obama quietly appoints Muslim Brotherhood to key posts

    [Obama’s top national security advisor declared that the Muslim Brotherhood is a ‘secular’ organization, non-extremist, and dedicated to ‘peace.’ Obama himself, in an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, refused to refer to the Brotherhood as an Islamic extremist organization, in spite of the fact that the group’s own charter, and recent statements made by its leadership, indicate exactly that.]

    US Muslim Enclaves

    [“Muslims are being commanded…to strike out against the U.S,
    Israel,and “corrupt” Muslim rulers and take up the cause of jihad
    as an individual responsibility.”

    The Israeli’s should change the name of the Gaza strip to the Dead Zone.

  • saveus

    Did anyone hear the US statement condemning this attacks?

    Did anyone hear any member of Congress call for the end of US funding of muslim terrorists?

    Has anyone asked obama to stop sending new weapons to enemies of the US?

    Don’t hold your breath.

    U.S. dollars have funded terrorists for a long time; since 1948, wait for it, wait for it oh, it’s Israel!
