AT LEAST 40 ROCKETS FIRED BETWEEN 8 AND 9 P.M.; FALSE ALARMS IN JERUSALEM, CENTER OF COUNTRY; ISRAEL CALLS UP 1,500 RESERVISTS; SECURITY CABINET ORDERS PHASED ESCALATION

The drumbeats of war are sounding again as Israel prepares for a major Gaza offensive after receiving non-stop rocket fire from Hamas all day Monday. The Times of Israel reports that Hamas fired more than 60 rockets into Israel between 8 and 9 p.m., to a range of some kilometers — including Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gan Yavneh, and the outskirts of Beit Shemesh.

Moral Equivalence, Moral Idiocy

Dispelling the myth of the “cycle of violence” in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Thousands attend funeral of Mohammad Abu Khdeir in Shu'afatScenes all too familiar from the Arab conflict with Israel have followed the murder last Wednesday of a 16-year-old Palestinian, Mohammed Abu Khdeir. Mourners at his funeral chanting the Muslim war-cry “Allahu Akbar” as they carry the boy’s open coffin, the crowd shouting slogans like “Intifada rise up” and “America and Israel are the terrorists,” banners representing terrorist organizations like Hamas and Islamic Jihad waving above the crowd, gangs of “youths” attacking Israeli police throughout East Jerusalem, barrages of rockets fired from Gaza into Israel, and the usual condemnations of Israel and calls for “restraint” from the “international community” – all sadly are business as usual. And the “business” is the demonization of Israel and the obscene double standards indulged by too many in the West. (Bruce Thornton)
