The Last Straw?

With Israel giving and giving, it is great to see the palestinians getting into the post Xmas spirit with some mistletoe missile.

The Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the Kassam attack on Sderot that wounded two ninth-grade boys, one critically, on Tuesday evening. The rocket was the seventh to have been fired at Sderot since Tuesday morning.

Shortly after 10 p.m., the Red Alert alarm sounded throughout Sderot; 10 seconds later, the rocket landed near a group of schoolchildren who were headed for the nearest shelter. Ninth-graders Matan Cohen and Adir Bassad, however, had no time to reach the shelter and were hit by shrapnel.

The two were evacuated to Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon, where doctors began operating.

Doctors told an Israel Radio interviewer shortly after 11 p.m. Tuesday that Bassad, who suffered hits to his chest and stomach, was not yet stabilized, and a surgical team was battling to save his life.

Cohen, whose major wound was to his leg, was reported stabilized.

A number of other people were reported in shock.

One of the medics who treated the boys reported that one of them was likely to lose his legs. One of the boys had a bone sticking out of one of his legs, he said, and the other’s ankle was completely twisted.

Please keep the boys in your prayers. And while your’e at it, how about throwing in a few prayers that our joke of a government will grow a backbone, and finally decide that appeasement has to give way to some serious terrorist butt-kicking.
