IDF’s Arab-language spokesman, Avihay Adarei, posted a status on Facebook mocking Hamas spokesman Fauzi Barhoum, who said the “resistance” knows where to fire, so Arabs are not hurt.

“A few minutes ago, a pointless rocket fired by the resistance, as it calls itself, fell inside the city of Hebron. What do you think about the Hamas spokesman’s comments from yesterday, that the resistance knows the geography and therefore knows how to avoid having rockets hit Arabs?”

    The Resistance should apologize to Arab residents. But more than that, they should repent of their shelling of Jerusalem and endangering Arabs there, even though some of them celebrate on the temple mount as the sirens wail. Look at the big picture. PM Netanyahu has been a statesman of great patience in hoping for someone of the opposition (Hamas) to step forward with a sincere desire to make peace.
