Egypt sends Rocket to Israel.

Egypt sends Rocket to Israel.

Is it a warning or a friendly reminder?

Rocket fired from Egypt hits Israeli city of Eilat

A Grad rocket has landed in the southern Israeli city of Eilat, but has caused no damage or injuries, Israeli security officials said.

District police chief Ron Gertner told Israeli radio the rocket had been fired from Egypt’s Sinai peninsula.

He said it struck a construction site close to a residential area shortly after midnight (21:00 GMT).

The blast took place as thousands congregated in the resort town for the Jewish holiday of Passover.

Rocket attacks from Egyptian soil are uncommon. Attacks on Eilat and the nearby Jordanian town of Aqaba in 2010 killed one person and injured another four.

Well, lets just for a minute take a look at the arab spring who was supported by our dear leader.. The Arab Spring was an uprising against a tyrant right? A tyrant who did support Israel’s right to exist. Many of us, including people like John Bolton and Allen West sent many warnings about what the potential was in Egypt.

This was only one rocket so far. But what if? What if MORE start coming in? Will Egypt be the catalyst for the great war to come? And what about our strong leadership who supports Israel right? Election year issue? How about this, the Islamists in the Middle east see Obama as POSSIBLY losing in 2012. They know they will have to deal with someone who WILL support Israel with deeds and words. They will lose an ALLY in the White House and they see that timeline shrinking.

This could be testing the waters, it could be a trial run and give them time to adjust the trajectory of their launchers. Heads up folks.

  1. Robert, it has been interesting to watch my colleagues react to Obama’s obvious disdain for Israel. Many of my good friends (heck, after 20 years of eating lunch together we’re kind of one big dysfunctional family) are Jewish. And even the few who are very liberal are getting nervous about the president making secret pacts with the Russians (who are very pro-Iran). Although President Obama may not be a true “ally” of the Islamists, functionally he might as well be. I listened to a Persian patient of mine cry the other day, “Why didn’t we help my people when they tried to rise up?” Didn’t have much of an answer for her, you know? But your take on this rocket launch is persuasive. That is, they know the GOP could win. Which would effectively remove the current carte blanche Hezbollah and the rest of the wackos have to attack Israel. Like always, Israel is just going to have to take care of bizness.

  2. Thanks for visiting Doc. And Many people of all religions are shaking hteir heads at “dear leader” I know this may be shocking but many of us on the right side of the aisle KNEW this was coming in 08. We HOPED not but deep down we knew.

    Israel can take care of business with most of the nations that want her gone. Egypt is equipped with weapons equal to most of Israels. They have a larger force (Man wise) and they have the support of all nations in the area as well as China and Russia who will NOT aid Israel. The balance of power in the area has changed and Obama has allowed it to get to the brink because of his lack of leadership and agenda driven policies.

    Israel will need help. And if Obama leaves her alone.. Things will get ugly world wide.

  3. robert, i hear you. I’m hoping things will change. wow. That is my most ironic post in a long time.

    1. Things will change when the American people wake up. Unfortunately, as long as the trough is full of slop the awakening will be tough… Keep fighting though Doc.
