Back on October 15th a Palestinian was caught with a mortar in his car just outside of Jerusalem.

Big story right?

Well, I accidentally found out all about it that week, but until today no one else knew what I was talking about. Plenty of friends (and you all know who you are) thought I was making it up.

I haven’t decided if the story was censored then because it was right after the disengagement and things were heating up and the government didn’t want it known that mortars were now in range of Jerusalem and it showed an obvious failure of the government’s policies, or if they were simply trying to catch the rest of this terrorist’s friends.

To be honest, the way things work here, you can’t really know what the real reason was.

Anyway, as I’ve mentioned, there are now mortars in range of Jerusalem.

It’s a good thing that the Knesset is having its roof reinforced against missile strikes.

JoeSettler: This isn't news; when the current war started in 2001, Gilo was shot at daily...and even had mortars fall there, which were shot from Beit Jalla.

Do you know what? You're right. I completely forgot about the mortars on Gilo.

yes, but why fix a problem, when you can just duck and hide? i wonder if we would see an airstrike if a few stray mortars blew up some of Arik's sheep?
