Over 90 Rockets Land in North in Past Two Hours

7:01 pm Israel time: Over 90 rockets have fallen in the past few hours up north. Unconfirmed reports of two dead in Haifa, 13 wounded slightly, and many treated for shock.

4:38 pm Israel time: Rockets fall in Akko, no injuries reported. Reports of rockets in Tiberias,Kiryat Shmoneh and Nahariya.

3:20 pm Israel time: Reports of rockets landing in Nahariya, Haifa, and Shlomi. One person slightly injured.

2:34 pm Israel time: Sirens sounding in Rosh Pina, Hatzor and Tzfat. Rocket lands in Tzfat, no injuries reported.

2:01 pm Israel time: The number of IDF soldiers wounded in Bent Jebail is up to 13.

1:40 pm Israel time: IAF helicopter forced to make emergency landing in the Galilee - not caused by enemy fire. Two injuries reported.

1:03 pm Israel time: IDF radio reports that tanks are entering Bent Jebail, and that there are many Hizballah terrorists killed.

12:36 pm Israel time: IDF denies report that it told Metullah residents to leave.

12:18 pm Israel time: Haaretz reports that the people of Metullah were told to evacuate the town.

A sign that things are quiet (bli ayin hara) in the north is that IDF radio broadcast its usual 11:00 am radio program "The Last Word". This program usually has two personalities, one from the left and one from the right of the political spectrum in Israel, who discuss current events in a combined humorous/serious vein. You know you are not a new immigrant anymore when you not only understand the Hebrew but you understand the jokes.

Today's hosts were Uri Orbach and Guy Meoz. Uri is a well known personality in the national religious camp, and is soft spoken but right wing. I don't know the background of Guy Meoz, but judging from his opinions he obviously is on the left.

The whole program was good - and I remember two good zingers. Guy complained that given the war a lot of his left-wing friends are going AWOL - to the right, and leaving him alone on the "battlefield".

Another good line was that "you know that things are bad when you are relieved to get reserve duty in Ramallah."

I really hope that it stays quiet, and that I don't have any updates to record.

I'm an American expat living in the Peoples Republic of England. Fortunately, I have a computer and can find the news and web sites that tell the whole story of what our friend Israel is going through right now. This morning, I woke up to the BBC, (don't get me started),telling all the English heads full of mush that Condi Rice is calling for an imediate end to hostilities. I swear, these bozos' wouldn't know a real news story if it bit them on the ankle. It took me about fifteen minutes to find the quote that started the beeb running down the path to surrender. Condi Rice told reporters on her way to Israel that everyone wanted a swift end to the fighting, BUT (and this is where the BBC quit reporting and began editorializing), the US will not negotiate with terrorist, and will not consider a cease-fire that didn't include the dismantling of Hizzbolla in accord with UN resolution to 1559. In addition, her talking points included all the points I heard from your excellent PM in his address to the kinnesset(sic). This time, Israel has a friend in the White House that knows what the stakes are, and is a true friend of Israel. I stand with my President in my unflinching support for the brave people of Israel. Thank you for taking the time to post on your excellent blog and help those of us in the rest of the world know what's really going on. God bless you, all of you.

Well I'm lefty and sometimes I wonder why in the hell some lefties think that only neo-communism is the answer.
