A glaring issue world media (for the most part) neglects to report is the ongoing terror Hamas inflicts on the citizens of Israel. In the last two weeks over four thousand rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israel. This latest barrage of Hamas rockets is nothing new. The terrorist group has increased the number and range of their rockets in this short period but they methodically and systematically terrorize the citizens of southern Israel consistently day after day throughout the year with rockets, incendiary balloons and kites rigged with explosives. These methods of terror have scorched nearly 10,000 acres of land and caused millions of shekels in damage in cities in southern Israel like Ashdod, Sderot, Ashkelon, and Beersheba. The psychological damage inflicted upon Jewish children and families living in southern Israel from the constant terror campaign of Hamas is even greater. The balloons carry small improvised explosives dangling by a string sometimes bearing the message “I Love You” and “Happy Birthday.” The objective is for Jewish children to pick up the balloons and be maimed or killed. Add to this the tunnels Hamas builds into Southern Israel in order to inflict casualties upon Israeli citizens and the puzzle becomes clear: Hamas is committed to a daily organized terror campaign that never stops and which is rarely reported in the media. Yet, when Israel retaliates they are viewed in the media as the evil aggressor. Shame!
