EU supporters readying Catherine Ashton a salute
It’s all a game I tell you, a deadly game, but a game nonetheless. The Tundra Tabloids explained it all here. So how about those Fakestinian “home made” Kassams that the Left is always telling you about, that they’re just a mere head ache for the Israelis? Yeah, real harmless, until one lands at your feet.

NOTE: Nothing happens within the Gaza Strip without the Hamas’ knowledge, it’s immaterial whether a supposed smaller group of terrorists carry out the attack.
JERUSALEM — A rocket fired by Palestinian militants from the Gaza Strip killed a man inside Israel Thursday, Israeli medics said, in the first death from such an attack since Israel’s Gaza offensive last year.Such rocket fire once common but have become rare since the Israeli military’s campaign in the Gaza Strip last year, which aimed to bring an end to the attacks.Israel’s emergency service Magen David Adom said the man killed was about 30 years old and appeared to be a farm worker from Thailand employed in an agricultural community just north of Gaza.Thursday’s attack came on the same day as a visit to Gaza by Europe’s top diplomat, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, the first such visit by a senior official in more than a year.Ashton had just crossed into Gaza when the attack took place.A small Islamist faction calling itself Ansar al-Sunna claimed responsibility for the rocket in a text message sent to reporters.There was no immediate response from Israel to the attack.The thousands of crude rockets that hit Israel over a seven-year period sparked the Israeli military’s three-week offensive in Gaza in late 2008 and January 2009. The brief war devastated Gaza, killing 1,400 Palestinians, including hundreds of civilians. Thirteen Israelis were killed.
