WHAT? Air raid siren in Jerusalem

Air raid sirens have been sounded in the Jerusalem area early Friday evening.
An air raid siren sounded in Tel Aviv early on Friday afternoon, followed by the sound of a blast. A rocket, fired from Gaza, exploded in an open area. No injuries or damage were immediately reported.

The police are looking for the site of the blast, and are looking into the possibility that another projectile was launched towards the city.

Vice Premier Moshe Ya’alon said Thursday that Palestinian terror groups do not have many missiles that can reach Tel Aviv. “I don’t know if they still have one or two missiles left, they don’t have a stockpile that can threaten central Israel,” he said.

Really? Seems they do. Now Jerusalem.

Update: Rocket hit just north of Jerusalem.

    This military operation is necessary to stop Hamas stockpiling weapons and using them against civilians in Israel.

    ok air raid siren but thats not the same as something falling there. It probebly fell “near” Jlem on the border .. the chances of something in Jlen is small as its the holliest place for the Muslims too.. to close to East Jlem and dome of the rock . Muslims would be stupid to risk the Dome or their kin the east Jlem. I say be aware and prepared but not to panic

      Two rockets shot at Jerusalem, fell just short

    • Lynne says :

      XSouthAfricanGal, Jerusalem is the holiest place for Christians and Jews, not Muslims. Several prominent, well-respected Muslims have gone on record saying that Jerusalem is not one of the most revered holy sites for Muslims. As to killing Muslims, please! There are Arab-Israelis all over Israel, and those rockets could just as easily hit them as they could Jewish-Israelis. Ismail Haniyah has five sisters who live in and near Beersheva, but that has not kept Hamas from heavily attacking that area —repeatedly over the years. Those sisters are equally at risk as anyone else. If Muslims die, the rational of those who are fanatics is that they died as martyrs. Those who are terrorists are not right-thinking people; they have a degree of violent pathology. Targeting innocent people is sick, it is inexcusable, and it’s evil.
      The fact is that most people in Israel want peace, to be good neighbors, but those who hold fanatical views in Gaza…Hamas and other terrorist organizations, will not agree to any peace agreement because their goal is the murder of all Jews and the destruction of Israel.

    Gulf War one the Scud rockets missed Jerusalem. The thinking at the time was that there were an awful lot of Muslims who would get upset if the mosques in Jerusalem were hit. And now? Hmm…seems the folks firing the rockets are a brick shy of a full load if they’re firing at Jerusalem!

    Coyote –just showing their true colours. Jerusalem is not mentioned even once in the Koran or any of the supplemental hadiths. They are well aware that it has no real significance for them beyond the ‘story’ they present to the world and have only presented since the late 70s in any unified way. You can go back and see the newspaper articles, translations of speeches, etc. starting in the 50s and increasing in which they made the argument that staking this claim could be a real weapon in their arsenal.

    • Lynne says :

      Absolutely, and I am grateful to the Muslims who have had the courage to speak out and refute the lie that Jerusalem is of great importance to Muslims.

      • israeliminx says :

        Yep. Many of them sacrificed a huge amount, having to go into hiding because a target was placed on their foreheads and that of their family members by the extremists. True Muslim heroes standing up for what is right, just and true.

  5. XSouthAfricanGal says :

    dome of the rock is just another insignificant mosl
    ok

  6. Mike says :

    Shooting an unguided and inaccurate rocket at a city full of Arabs and Muslim religious sites — yeah that’s going to end well. What happens after they hit the Dome of the Rock. I guess the Guardian writes an accurate story and Moshiach shows up. Oh well.

  7. XSouthAfricanGal says :

    I can promise you that if anything happens to The Dome the Muslims will not take it sitting down.
    BTW the rocket the “hit” Jelem hit the out skurts of Gush Etzion an Arab village

    so as i wrote before Jerusalem too risky a target for them

  8. SirJohn says :

    What would happen if a missile hit the Dome of the Rock, or the Al Aqsa mosque? Well, pallywood would claim that the Israelis fired it and the stupid Europeans would believe it. So nothing special would happen.

  9. XSouthAfricanGal says :

    Ya think Sir Jhon?
    I guess wordl war III would start – the mosque is a holy site
    that is Jlem’s safety card

    • israeliminx says :

      Xsag –what have you been smoking? :) They’ve shot 2 rockets at Jerusalem. Hamas murdered nearly 1000 Fatahniks including little kids in their overthrow of the Gaza strip. They don’t care if they hit fellow Arabs nor do they care if they hit “holy” sites.

    • Lynne says :

      Hamas dug a tunnel to Abbas’ house, with the plan to kill him. These are ruthless, vile maniacs. I’m not talking about all the people in Gaza, though many of them—too many of them— have been thoroughly indoctrinated to hate and think terrorism acceptable. Islamists are maniacs, with twisted warped minds and no hesitancy to murder anyone. It is well-documented that they violently murdered their own.
