Gaza region tense ahead of regular Hamas Friday riots

The residents of Sderot and other communities abutting the Gaza Strip strove Friday morning for a semblance of normality. After firing 200 rockets, Hamas announced an Egyptian-mediated ceasefire Thursday night. The IDF responded that this must stand the test of a halt on mob disturbances and attacks on Israeli troops regularly staged by Hamas every Friday afternoon since March, as well as an end to the terror-by-arson of incendiary kites and balloons.  The IDF has restricted children’s summer camps to protected buildings.  Large military contingents stand ready outside the Palestinian enclave.

    This just proves who’s setting the agenda.

    If there was any “Deterrence” Friday would be just anther day with some angry arabs. Here you have the southern part of Israel in fear, close to shelters and waiting.

    The current government is a disgrace. How can you let your people suffer with no hope of it ending? The human toll in unimaginable.

    Islam is just an excuse for terrorism. The only way to prevent attacks from Terrorstinians to to get them far away from other people they have been taught to hate and attack and into the countries of their co-religionists.
