Children's Day Care Center In Sderot Hit By Rockets

Islamic Jihad fired a salvo of rockets that hit a childrens day care center in Sderot today as children started their second day of the new school year. The Islamic Jihad said they had fired nine Kuds-3 rockets, saying on their internet site that the attack was "a present for the start of the new school year."

In other words, they deliberately targeted the children and knew exactly what the buiding was. Anyone have any doubts that this is our modern day Amalek?

IDF soldiers scrambled to evacuate everyone inside after the attack. Twelve people, including some of the babies, were treated for shock, and it's only by mere chance that no one was killed.

Needless to say, the residents are furious.Parents across the city have pulled their children out of schools and day care centers and are vowing not to return them until the Olmert government does something to end the attacks once and for all.

Twelve Israelis in Sderot have been killed by the rocket atacks from Gaza since the `settlers' in places like Gush Katif were forced from their homes by their own countrymen.

Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal sharply criticized the Olmert government today because of its failure to stop the persistent firing of Palestinian rockets on the city.

"No government official was asking about the events happening in Sderot this morning, they're just not interested," Army Radio quoted Moyal as saying.

The truth is, aside from lip service, the Olmert government does in fzct have very different goals and the next surrender of Israeli land to its Arab peace partners.

When a government ceases to protect its citizens...its has lost all legitimacy. Nothing will change unless the Israeli people get out in the streets en masse to make it happen.
