The thousands of rockets fired from Gaza randomly into Israeli towns and cities over the past several years into Israel have caused casualties and death, but these have been kept down by defensive Israeli actions such as warning sirens and bomb shelters.

But the terror of living under random rocketing should not be underestimated.

This video of rockets fired into Ashdod, Israel, a few days ago via An Israeli Soldier’s Mother reveals some of what the Israelis live with, and why it is an unacceptable form of “peace”:

Can you imagine standing on the balcony in the middle of a city – in this case, Ashdod, on a beautiful sunny morning when air raid sirens sound. I think these guys were dumb for not going to a sheltered room. Videotaping is important to help the world understand – but imagine if one of those SIX rockets had hit their building. I don’t want to imagine that. I’m so grateful that they are alive and safe.

So, instead, I’ll ask you to imagine wherever you are at at this very moment – look out your window and imagine you were seeing and hearing what these young men saw and heard. The whole clip is one minute and 16 second long…enough time for Ashdod to be hit…six times.
