Chi-Coms Made HAMAS Missiles That Hit My Cousins’ School; Contained Metal Pellets Designed to Kill and Maim
By Debbie Schlussel
Earlier today, I relayed a photo and e-mail from my cousin, Arnie Schlissel, who lives in Be’er Sheva, Israel. He sent photos of the Be’er Sheva school where his wife, Karen, teaches, and which was hit by a HAMAS rocket. Fortunately, because of the rockets, much of Israel is in a sort of emergency, and the school was closed to avoid the harm to the children and other civilians that these HAMAS rockets are meant to cause.
Now, it’s been reported that this missile that hit cousin Karen’s school was made in China and contained metal pellets designed to inflict maximum human injury. Let’s hear it for the Chi-Coms. They make everything we buy at Target, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and elsewhere. And they also make these weapons of death and destruction for terrorists. Gee, for all the anti-capitalism they preach, they are the ultimate capitalists with no moral compass:
Home Front Command’s deputy chief says rocket fired at Negev city can cause much greater damage than the Qassam; adds that all events with 100 or more guests will be cancelled due to attacks
“We are witnessing the expansion of the rocket fire emanating from Gaza to a radius of 30 – 40 kilometers (about 19 – 25 miles),” the deputy commander of the IDF’s Home Front Command said Wednesday.
Brigadier-General Avraham Ben-David told reporters that in light of the rocket attacks on Beersheba, all planned events with over 100 participants will be cancelled, including New Year’s Eve parties.
Referring to the rocket attack that severely damaged a Beersheba school earlier in the day, Ben-David said the IDF’s decision to cancel classes in all of the Negev city’s educational institutions “saved lives”, adding that school will be out at least until the end of the week.
Ben Gurion University announced that it will also remain closed until the end of the week.
Addressing residents’ claims that the city’s bomb shelters are run down and uninhabitable, Ben-David said that on Monday the IDF instructed the local municipality to open all of the shelters and make certain that they are fit for use.
The army official said the rocket that struck the school in Beersheba was manufactured in China, is heavier than the Qassam and can “potentially cause much greater damage.” He said the rocket contains metal pellets that can spread out across a radius of up to 100 meters (about 328 feet) from the point of impact.
Remember this the next time you hear Palestinians and the liberal media whining that Israelis are hitting HAMAS-supporting “civilians.” What do they think my cousins in Be’er Sheva and the kids Karen teaches are? Military? Hello . . . ?
