WHO WILL WIN THE UNITED STATES PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS?*My friend Miriam blogs from the Israeli south, so she has a much closer perspective than I do.

Israelis Under Attack! Weapons of Choice: Missiles, Firebombs, Boulders and More....
The purpose of the posting is to make you aware that over a million southern residents are being held hostage by Hamas and their band of terrorists, firing missiles indiscriminately at southern communities. They want us to be so terrified to live in the South, that we abandon our land and run away. Their goal is to inch down from Gaza [Gush Katif] to the south, to the center, to Jerusalem, to Tel Aviv and eventually take over all of Israel.
This is a Grad Missile that landed in Sedot NegevI think it's very important for us to remember that there are good Israeli Jews, a million according to most counts, under the threat of attack all the time. And one of the tools/techniques of terrorism is the element of surprise to create insecurity. You can have a few days of quiet and think that the optimistic "diplomatic agreements and media proclamations" are really for real, and then BOOM! Another kassam, launched by Arab terrorists rips through the sky and destroys a home, school, garden, field, life and/or family...
This is the large crater it made.
We must feel their pain and fears, as if we're there with them.
I am angry.
You see, as most people in the United Kingdom and elsewhere around the world were going about their daily routines on Wednesday, here in Israel, over 1 million people were running for cover from a hail of rockets being rained down by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza. In the space of the preceding 24 hours, at least 80 rockets were fired on southern Israel. That’s more than three rockets per hour.
Just to put things in context: one million Israelis is roughly 13 percent of the population. Thirteen percent of the population of the UK equates to about 8 million people, or the entire population of London. (complete article)
I guess I found this old
