Hamas Launching Rockets
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
For several weeks Gaza was quiet. No shots were fired from Gaza into Israel.
The quiet has now been shattered.
Hamas had been treading very carefully during the final stages of the Shalit prisoner exchange. They did everything they could to preserve the quiet and make certain that their 1,027 prisoners would be released. And they were.
Even when there was a rocket attack during that period, Hamas proved that they handled the rogue activists and that they were neither Hamas operatives nor were they operating under the orders or auspices of Hamas.
Now that the prisoners are home, long range rockets - even longer than before the period of quiet, are being launched into Israel. Recently launched rockets landed in the port city of Ashdod and alarms have been sounded in the city of Kiryat Malachi.
This is called a serious escalation in rocket attacks.
We must watch and see how Israel responds.
