The Gazan Terrorists Were Looking for Any Excuse to Cease the Ceasefire

There's no longer quiet in the south of Israel.  The Arab terrorists have resumed their reign of terror on our Israeli civilians.  Of course, The New York Times tries to justify the Arab actions by giving them an excuse:
Israel Struck by Rocket From Gaza After a Death
JERUSALEM — A Grad rocket fired from the Gaza Strip struck in southern Israel early Tuesday, threatening to further escalate tensions that have been mounting since Saturday, when a 30-year-old Palestinian prisoner died in an Israeli jail...
A subgroup of Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade, the military wing of the Palestinians’ Fatah faction, said it fired the rocket in response to what it called the “assassination” of Arafat Jaradat, the prisoner who died on Saturday. Palestinian leaders have placed blame for Mr. Jaradat’s death on what they described as “severe torture” during interrogation, though Israeli officials say the bruising and broken ribs cited as evidence of torture could have been caused by resuscitation efforts.

It's a very lame excuse as excuses go to resume the terror attacks on Israel, not that the terrorists need excuses.  I have no doubt that they have been efficiently planning this attack and more to come ever since they had agreed to the ceasefire.  They were just waiting for the right excuse to resume bombing Israel.

Israel is doing the proper thing and investigating Jaradat's death, but that won't satisfy the Arabs and the "world" because they don't want to accept that Israel is blameless.
Israeli officials dismissed on Tuesday a Palestinian Authority demand for an international inquiry into the death of Palestinian detainee Arafat Jaradat as a “predictable” maneuver and part of a larger strategy to bring the international community into the conflict whenever possible.
A call for international involvement is “nothing new,” one official said, and is part of the overall Palestinian strategy.
It's necessary for Israel to take the high road and blame the Arab terrorists and the international bodies and western world for supporting and understanding them. 

We and they should just understand the truth. The truth is that the ultimate aim of the Arabs, and a good part of the international community is that the world would be better off without Israel.  This is nothing new.  This is why during World War Two when the millions of European Jews were being systematically murdered by the Nazis the rest of the world stood passively silent.  The war against the Nazis was to keep them from taking over all of Europe and Great Britain.  Destroying the Death Camps was not in the battle plan.

Great Britain had the Mandate to occupy the HolyLand and prepare it to be the site of the Jewish State, but they did everything in their power to keep that from happening.  They minimized the immigration of Jews, even those Jews escaping the Holocaust and they supported the Arabs over the Jews.

Israel shouldn't listen to foreign complaints and advice.  Our responsibility is to destroy the Arab terrorists who aim to destroy us.

PS What an awful time for United States Barack Hussein Obama to be visiting...

Batya; I woukd like to add that this is not the first breach of the so called "peace treaty". There have been atleast two kassam rockets to the Eshkol area and several morters. This IS the first rocket that was shot out of the "Otef Aza" (Gaza belt) area.
But then again, when have terrorists ever kept tgeir word or promisses? The answer is NEVER!

Devora, thanks so much for posting this important information. The media and politicians try to hide the facts from us.

Devorah said...

My pleasure.
As you know, they ( the terrorists from Aza) are my neighbors . They can't hide the BOOMS.

I guess we're just going to have to do a better job cleaning up the neighborhood Devorah.

Technically speaking, the ceasefire was broken as soon as it came into being. There were several rockets fired on the evening the ceasefire began, but they were fired in the 20 minutes after the ceasefire began.

LM, Israel has accepted that as "normal." It always takes the Arab terrorists a few extra attacks to wind down...
