Southern Israel this morning (Saturday)

May 04, 2019



OVER ONE HUNDRED rockets have been fired from Gaza at towns, villages and kibbutzim in southern Israel in just the LAST THIRTY MINUTES, as Jews take cover in bomb shelters and children cry. And most of the international media and European governments that have de facto assisted Hamas, ignore it.

There is not one word about the bombardment on The Guardian or New York Times home page as I write (11.30 CET). Instead there is (yet) another piece criticizing Benjamin Netanyahu on The Guardian home page.

The missile bombardment is continuing as I write.

The truly brilliant, life-saving iron dome rocket system has intercepted dozens of Hamas rockets.
