Bombs on Jerusalem
Jerusalem used to be safe. It is nearly 40 miles from Gaza and 3,000 feet above sea level. In the last go-round, the Hamas rockets couldn't reach that far. Now they can. Rockets were fired aimed at both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv this week, as Israel launched its own offensive in Gaza. "Every Israeli is a target," a Hamas spokesman was quoted in the press.
How do they live like this, a friend asks, after speaking with colleagues in Israel. The Israelis were calmer than me, my friend tells me.
