And the rocket's red glare... (with updates)

UPDATE 2:   More Rockets.  Good thing schools here were closed today as the news is reporting a direct hit on 'an educational institution'.

Since Friday morning, when the Israeli Defense

UPDATE 1:  We just had a particularly interesting barrage... several [not saying how many for security reasons) rockets landed within earshot of my office.

Let's hope that was like the grande finale at the end of the fireworks show.

I hear rumors that Hamas is sending requests for a cease fire via Egypt... and firing off a big salvo just before it takes effect would be in keeping with their past actions.

Original post begins here:

Ministry's match-making department successfully introduced the Secretary General of the Palestinian PRC (Popular Resistance Committee), and one of his top aids to their 72 virgins, more than 100 missiles have landed in southern Israel.

So far the Iron Dome anti-missile system has had a 90% success rate in intercepting missiles aimed at large population centers.  But that is small comfort to those living in unprotected towns and outlying areas (not to mention those in the path of the 10% of rockets that the Iron Dome system missed).

It should be an interesting day at work today in Beer Sheva.

Your opening line reminds me of that great old taunt attributed to the Marines: "It's God's job to judge the terrorists. It's our job to arrange the meeting." Thank you for your good attitude and cool head under fire. Stay safe. You and about a million other holy Yidden.

This evening I could watch Iron Dom intercepting a rocket. Marveless indeed, really impressing. I guess by tomorrow it will quiet down. ..
