If you have not heard yet, Israel has been under attack from it's southern border since Thursday, August 17th. This is being drastically underreported in the news, so it's difficult to have up-to-date information. The attacks began on August 17th when an Israeli bus traveling near the southern border with Egypt was attacked by a rocket. More barrages against Israel quickly ensued including mortars and anti-tank missiles. All in all, eight people were killed (six civilians and two Israeli security forces) in the attack along with another thirty injured. The Israeli government found the Palestinian terrorist group Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) responsible for the attacks. PRC is based in the Gaza strip and has ties to the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah. Israel responded with counter air strikes against the PRC headquarters killing the head of the PRC and two of it's members while staving off more rocket attacks from Israel. Fighting has continued since, but a new round of attacks came on August 24th when two rockets were launched into an open area on the southern border, injuring a baby. The skirmish resulted in the deaths of two Palestinian militants (one linked the attacks the week before), over a dozen rockets launched at Israel and strong Israeli reinforcement on their southern border.

While all of this is happening, protests are being held in Trafalgar Square in London for the destruction of Israel. Lauren Booth, a British journalist who converted to Islam (who has gained notoriety for being Tony Blair's half-sister-in-law) spoke saying "...And we say here today to you Israel, we see your crimes and we loathe your crimes. And to us your nation does not exist, because it is a criminal injustice against humanity. We want to see Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt go to the borders and stop this now. Liberate Al Quds! March to Al Quds!” Booth also openly called for the support of Hamas, a terrorist organization. And, as these protesters protested supposed war crimes of Israel, they also called for the annihilation of the state of Israel and its entire people.
