      "The Rockets' Red Glare, The Bombs Bursting In Air..."


      Our Arab terrorist enemies have been celebrating.  Isn't that why they've again broken the cease fire?

      During the Arab "wedding season, we're "treated to" loud music, guns going off and fireworks from Arab towns.  Is that why the Arab terrorists bombarded Sderot and Ashkelon today?

      What were they celebrating?  Could it have been Barack Obama's victory?  Or was it in memory of Yitzchak Rabin who gave them weapons as part of the Oslo Accords?

      And my question now is:

      What will the State of Israel do?

      What would any normal country do?

      For once, being normal would be a good thing.
