ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Channeling their inner Hitler, who loved to fire unguided V-2 rockets at London, causing panic and fear, and the deaths of thousands, the “peaceful” Palestinians are at it again, firing Katusha rockets into southern Israel at border towns along the Gaza Strip.

Eight projectiles were fired Wednesday at the small town of Sderot, a bustling Jewish community right smack dab up against the border with the Arab territory. Two rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile system, but at least two hit pay dirt, injuring at least three civilians.

I’ve been to Sderot many times. I was rocketed in Sderot during the 2014 conflict with Gaza. I can tell you from personal experience, the rockets are terrifying. You only get a few seconds once the alarm goes off to make it to a shelter. Sometimes you just can’t get there in time. Today, multiple children were in this predicament. There is a video on the web of a bomb going off nearby them as they huddled against the incoming artillery.

What Hamas is doing is evil. If anyone preaches about the “peace-loving Palestinians,” just tell them they are war criminals, firing unguided rockets into civilian areas. They are no better than Hitler-killing Jews with gas chambers, only the method is different.

I personally witnessed an elderly Jewish grandmother have a breakdown after a rocket landed in her backyard, where her grandchildren were playing seconds before, slicing up the surrounding buildings with molten hot shrapnel. It is not pretty. It is terrifying — on purpose, I might add — and it is definitely evil.

The Times of Israel reports, “A 34-year-old man was lightly-to-moderately wounded by shards of broken glass while inside an apartment building in the town, according to the Magen David Adom ambulance service. Another man in his 20s was also lightly wounded by glass shrapnel to the limbs in a different area of Sderot. And a woman sustained an injury to her leg as she ran to a bomb shelter. All three were taken to Ashkelon’s Barzilai Medical Center for treatment, along with two pregnant women who went into premature labor as a result of the stress from the attack, MDA said. Eight people were taken to the hospital after they suffered panic attacks. Three others who suffered panic attacks were treated on the scene.”

It is time for the corrupt media to stop calling these people heroes or victims. They are killers. They don’t want peace. They want to kill Jews.

They have been offered a settlement many times over the years, only to reject it. If the Palestinians wanted peace, they would have it.

However, they don’t want it. They want to destroy Israel. It’s time to call them out for what they are.
