Gaza-based terrorists fire two rockets at western Negev; no injuries reported
Two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip exploded in an open area near Sderot on Saturday evening. No injuries or damage were reported.
A 29-year-old woman was lightly injured when running to a protected space. She was taken to the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon shortly after.
Our friends on the left basically fall into two camps. The smaller of these camps think that the tiny Jewish minority in the Middle East richly deserve whatever Arab-Palestinian violence comes their way.
The larger of these camps think that whether or not the tiny Jewish minority in the Middle East deserve this violence, they have a moral imperative to simply take it without striking back... much as we did during the long centuries of dhimmitude.

It looks like Romney may state that Jerusalem should be the capital of Israel. If so, that would be a rejection of both Democratic and Republican administrations. It will also alienate Muslim countries to a remarkable extreme. This is really, really, really bad.

Right because recognizing the City of David as the capital of the Jewish state shouldn't be done because it would further anger Muslim countries. That makes sense.

I think it is long past time to stop U.S. funding of the State of Israel and their apartheid regime.....stop it all....money for west bank settlements, 'border fences', military help, etc.

None of this is an anomaly. The progressive-left is absolutely crawling with people who despise the Jewish state of Israel, but what I find particularly sad are the ways in which "progressive Zionists" constantly make excuses for their fellow Israel Hating compadres.
Is there any other people on the entire planet that would embrace a political movement which is directly in opposition to their own well-being?
I do not think so.
