As Elder of Zion points out, there is a notable absence of Palestinian apology for the murder of a 76 year old Israeli woman
by Qassam (or is it Grad?) rocket.
Few of the Palestinian Arabic-language press that I could find has mentioned that the victim of today's rocket attack was a 70-year old grandmother.
Palestine Today describes her as a "youth of American origin."
Ma'an does not mention it.
I couldn't find a mention in WAFA.
Firas Press describes her as a "settler."
Palestine News Network described her as an "Israeli settler."
And Islamic Jihad refers to her as a "settler."
Only Ramattan calls her a 70-year old woman.
The venerable lady has been rejuvenated for the purposes of Palestinian propaganda. Everyone in Israel becomes a At Palestinian Web sites, there is propaganda about "siege narratives." This victim cannot give her narrative, as she is dead. Neither can 48 year old civilian Jimmy Kdoshim of Kfar Aza, killed a few days ago. Dead people don't have "narratives," the fact of their deaths is enough.
An alarming feature of the recent attacks is that some of them, though called "Qassam" rocket attacks, were rocket landings in places 15 KM or more from Gaza, outside the range of Qassam rockets. Two rockets fell in Ashkelon, and the lady was killed 15 km from Gaza. Somebody is not telling us something about these rockets.
