Sderot is again on its own. Even though 230 rockets has been fired into Israel since the cease fire, five trauma centers in the region are set to close down.
This week there was four rocket and mortar attacks in southern Israel, making it 230 attacks since the ceasefire on January 18th. Still the Sderot Emergency Center which provides immediate first aid to the victims of the rocket attacks was closed last month due to lack of funding.
This week the trauma center was specially opened for US Foreign Affairs Committee Florida Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Texas Governor Perry. During the visit, Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen noted the still apparent rocket threat:
«It is only a ceasefire for Israel. It is never a ceasefire for the terrorists in the Gaza Strip».

Sderot is the best example that giving up «Jewish land for peace» will never bring peace to Israel. This small township is located in the Negev desert next to the border with Gaza. Its not a part of the so-called West-bank, and there can be no Islamic justification for targeting its civilian population what so ever. This is pure evil.
When the Jewish state handed over the control Gaza-strip to the PA Authority, many Zionist voices warned that this would be a major mistake.
They were right.
Sderot is the best example. Even during the so-called cease fire between Hamas and Israel, 230 rockets has been fired into Israel. In Sderot, the citizens have 15 seconds to run for cover when the Code Red alam har been triggered by an incomming rocket from Gaza.
