Summary of rocket fired into Israel, January 2012

Sorry I haven’t been uploading the blog this past month, life got busy and then some.

I’m even more sorry that I couldn’t find suffient time to write adequate posts about several issues, since January 2012 was far from a quiet month. Among the events taking place were:

  • Thwrated terror attacks against Israeli and Jewish targets around the world, originating from Hezbollah and its’ “sugar daddy” Ayetollah regime in Iran – An explosive was found under an Israeli tourist bus in BulgariaAzerbaijan uncovered a plot to attack the Israeli ambassador and the jewish home of Chabad; Israeli and US intellegince forwarded information to  Thailand about terrorists planning to bomb a central market street populated with Israeli tourists. Two terrorists were captured and a third managed to escape. The captured led local police to a stash of enormous explosives and various materials used to create lethal bombs.
  • Two seperate attacks were thwarted at a military checkpost where a group of armed Palestinian carrying pipe bombs and explosives were captured. It is believed they were trying to commit a terror attack at the near-by army courthouse.
  • One of these incidents occured during the sentencing of one of the Fogel Family killers. Ten months after taking the lives of five family members (two parents and three children), Amjad Awad was sentenced to over 5 consecutive life sentences. During his trial and sentencing, he showed no remorse and continued kept a smile on his face.
  • Jordan is tightening its’ relations with Hamas, in an attempt to soothe its’ own Arab Spring that, just like in every other country, has more religious Islamic undemocratic aspects to it, than anything aspiring to true freedom. The attempt is due to the fact that the majority of Jordan’s tribal population are Palestinians who aline themselves with Hamas’ ideology.
  • Israel officialy appointed its’ first ambasasdor to newly formed South Sudan.
  • International pressure finally got the Palestinians to reach indirect peace talks with Israel. Just like in September 2010, they came to the table unwillingly with the sole purpose of leaving by the 26th. Again, wanting an international pressure that would force Israel to cave and them to make no real concessions on key and core issues, Palestinian Authority leaders walk away from the table without having disccused anything serious and given the chance for real peace.
  • 12 rockets and mortar shells were fired upon Israeli civilian population during January 2012. On January 1st, three mortar shells contained phosphorescent material. Here is the usual summary:
