Ten rockets were launched at Israel from Gaza between Friday and Monday. Three more were fired at Israel yesterday morning. The Olmert government, paralyzed by the Winograd Commission report, has not responded. If the first job of government is to protect its citizens, one may say that today Israel has no government.
As of the end of 2006, Palestinian terrorists had launched 1916 rockets at Israel from Gaza, since the withdrawal of the Israeli settlements there. Please read this post by Rick Richman at Jewish Current Issues, and then ask yourself, from Oslo through the Gaza withdrawal, what have concessions to the Palestinian terrorists brought Israel, other than more terror, injury and death?
Richman concludes, "Sderot is only one hour [drive time] from Tel Aviv and one hour from Jerusalem. Rockets will eventually get there in less time. Olmert has yet to visit Sderot."
