Another Attack On Israel

http://www.cnn.com/2007/JERUSALEM (CNN) – At least two Katyusha rockets fired from Lebanon landed near the northern Israeli town of Kiryat Shmona on Sunday, police and Israel Defense Forces said.

Lebanese security sources later reported that another rocket fired from Lebanon never made it across the Israeli border and landed near an observation post operated by the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon.

A representative from the U.N. force called the attack a “serious violation of Security Council Resolution 1701 and of the cessation of the hostility agreement” that followed last year’s war between Israel and Hezbollah militants.

“An investigation is under way,” the representative said, asking all parties to “exercise maximum restraint.”

All three missiles were launched using timing devices, and a fourth rocket failed to fire and is being dismantled by the Lebanese army, the sources said. (Watch the aftermath of the rocket attacks Video)

Hezbollah quickly denied responsibility for the attack, Lebanese security sources said.

A Lebanese security source told the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, that suspected Palestinian gunmen carried out the attack.

There were no reports of casualties, police said. Only minor damage was reported.

Video from Israeli television showed a damaged car on the side of a road, it’s front bumper crushed and windshield cracked.

The launch sites were in the eastern portion of southern Lebanon, near the town of Marjayoun, which is controlled by Lebanese forces who are monitoring the border after last summer’s war between Israel and Hezbollah.

The rockets were the first to land in northern Israel since Kiryat Shmona was pounded by hundreds of Katyusha rockets during the 34-day war.

According to media reports, Kiryat Shmona Mayor Haim Barbivai told Israel’s Channel 2 that he wanted to see a strong response from Israel and the Lebanese government.

“Heaven help us if we have another summer like the last one. That would be a tragedy,” Barbivai told the television station.

Of course it’s Israel’s fault you know. They shouldn’t make anybody mad and appease their enemies.

They had it coming. They are merely being punished for daring to commit the sin of being Jewish. If they would stop doing that, then everything would be cool, and the Muslims could focus their attention on the rest of the world.

They could get back to their regularly scheduled Muslim on Muslim violence.

Wait. The U.S. media has told me repeatedly that Islam is the religion of peace! Is that NOT accurate?

See the BBC thread.

If you think the Israeli are the victims in this whole mess, it really just shows you’re a mindless idiot.

Hey, if it’s so tough on them, why don’t they all move to the Gaza strip and swith sides with the Palestinians living there?

Maybe they shouldn’t have given up Gaza to begin with.

This makes even less sense than your usual rambling. Well done.

I’m going to be honest with you, I don’t know what the fuck you are trying to say.

Why? The Israelis would end up making Gaza livable, while the Palestinians would make Israel like Gaza.
