Nu, you say that there's no war going on if you don't read about it in Haaretz? It's like that great philosophical question about the tree falling in the forest not being heard, so did it really fall?
Wow! Now I understand. It's the latest defense mechansism, war theory, weapon etc being utilized by the IDF and the present Binyamin Netanyahu-Ehud Barak-Shaul Mofaz government. The most powerful weapon we have is silence!
Don't let anyone know that we're being attacked, and then it'll be as if we're not attacked. Nu! That's how they worked on the Beit El "leaders" sic. By having such a silent stoic -keep the kids away- evaccuation of the "problematic homes" in the ulpana neighborhood, there won't be any great evocotive pictures, so the entire action will be ignored by the media, as is if it never happened, or since the government so kindly provided a packing service, it should be thought of as humanitarian "urban renewal."
I know that I keep saying that sarcasm shouldn't be written, but...
Arutz 7 is publishing articles about the attacks on Israel:
Terrorists Fire Four Grad Missiles at Netivot
Terrorists from Gaza fire a barrage of four Grad missiles at Netivot. Iron Dome intercepts two of them.
I guess they're supposed to take our minds off of the silent and cooperative sheep to the salughter evacuation that happened right next to their Beit El studio and office. Sorry, but I'm in a wful mood this morning.
If you want a truer picture of what's happening in the Israeli south listen and read Arutz 7 Tamar Yona's report:
One of those she interviews is Miriam who blogs about it.
And just to remind you, Israel is a very tiny country. Here's a map (Hebrew) showing wich cities are in the range of fire, up to 40 kilometers. In the 30 kilometer zone are most of the places where the Jewish Gush Katif DP's now live.
Here's a translated version. I hope it makes things clear enough.
We can only defeat our enemies if we fight them to submission. Ignoring them won't help us at all!
