Rockets fired from the Siani, in Egypt, hit the city of Eilat but there were no injuries. Elyat is a vacation area, filled with (mostly secular) Jews, there for the holiday of Passover, a Jewish celebration of Moses leading their people – released from slavery in Egypt!
Since Mubarak was replaced during Egypt’s “Arab Spring”, the relationship between Israel and Egypt has been tenuous at best. This incident suggested that Egypt’s political upheaval resulting in a power vacuum allowed Gaza militants with allies in Sinai to open a new front against Israel on its long-quiet frontier with Egypt.
The last rockets to hit Israel, fired from Egypt were in April and August of 2010, but last year gunmen (suspected to be Palestinians) crossed into Israel from the Siani and ambushed vehicles on a desert highway, killing eight Israelis in a brazen, coordinated attack.
The TERRORIST organization, Muslim Brotherhood, is running a candidate for President and he’s expected to win. It’s feared that this is an indication of what is coming . . . . as a result of more radical Muslims in control of Egypt.
American leftists (among them, to be explicit, Bernadine Dohrn, Bill Ayers wife) were in Egypt during this time, as members of “Code Pink” and other groups, promoting the Arab Spring, saying it would bring FREEDOM to Egypt’s people — very unlikely! Leftists rarely bring freedom to others!
