Those darned 'militants'!

Pesky little devils, aren't they?
Palestinian militants from Gaza increased the range and intensity of their rocket fire against Israel on Wednesday as the Israeli security cabinet met here and weighed options including broader military action or efforts for a renewed truce.
About 40 rockets and mortars had slammed into southern Israel by midday, the Israeli military said. The rockets hit the courtyard of a house and a water park in the coastal city of Ashkelon, a factory in an Israeli industrial zone at Nir Oz, near the Gaza border, and a house outside the Western Negev town of Netivot. The strikes caused extensive damage and widespread panic among the residents, but no serious injury.
The military wing of Hamas, the Islamic group that controls Gaza, said in a statement that the rocket fire was "a response to Zionist aggression" and to the economic embargo Israel has imposed on Gaza.
Ah, the ever-popular "Zionist agression" excuse! If only O.J. Simpson had thought of blaming "Zionist aggression" by the Goldman family . . .

  1. That defense would work, but only if at least one member of the jury belonged to the HamasNazi party.
