JERUSALEM (AP) — The Hamas militant group on Monday launched a rare rocket strike on Jerusalem after hundreds of Palestinians were hurt in clashes with Israeli police at an iconic mosque, as tensions in the holy city pushed the region closer to full-fledged war.
Israel responded with airstrikes across the Gaza Strip, where 20 people, including nine children, were killed in fighting. More than 700 Palestinians were hurt in clashes with Israeli security forces in Jerusalem and across the West Bank, including nearly 500 who were treated at hospitals.
It was a long day of anger and deadly violence that laid bare Jerusalem’s deep divisions, even as Israel tried to celebrate its capture of the city’s eastern sector and its sensitive holy sites more than half a century ago. With dozens of rockets flying into Israel throughout the night, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with top security officials and warned that the fighting could drag on, despite calls for calm from the U.S., Europe and elsewhere.
“The terrorist organizations in Gaza have crossed a red line and attacked us with missiles in the outskirts of Jerusalem,” Netanyahu said. “Whoever attacks us will pay a heavy price,” he said, warning that the fighting could “continue for some time.”

Right behind them were Jewish folks waiting to take up residence. Surprising enough, this act of war started when it was announced in the news that Netanyanu lost the election. Many Palestinians were being injured in the process requiring hospitalization while Israeli occupiers were claiming it was their right to have these homes. The only question to ask our media is how Netanyanu’s ass smells.

Our media doesn’t report it as such, but forcibly evicting Palestinians so Jews can move in sure looks like ethnic cleansing to me. Hamas had to do something to please its own supporters.
