Palestinians fire rocket at school bus...

Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives

Palestinians fired an anti-tank rocket on Friday morning at school bus carrying children outside the southern Gaza Strip settlement of Kfar Darom, shaking the fragile lull in violence. The rocket failed to hit the bus. Also, a mortar shell hit a Gush Katif settlement. No damage or casualties were reported in either case. And in yet another afront to peace, Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired four Qassam rockets at the southern Israeli town of Sderot predawn Friday. The Magen David Adom ambulance service said that several people had been treated for shock.

And so on, etc... The Palestinian terrorist groups continue their double-speak and anti-Israel terrorism, despite promises of peace and tranquility(sic). An op-ed piece in The Daily Star sums it up nicely:

(...) Neither Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat's death nor the Gaza withdrawal change realities that have blocked previous hopeful episodes. Israeli settlements expand, the Israeli separation wall continues to be built, Palestinian refugees remain stateless, Hamas builds rockets and Palestinian security forces remain unregulated and undisciplined.

The blog Solomonia asks, "If this is a "shaky" lull, how much worse can it get?"

Abbas can/will do nothing to stop this.  What next?
