Imagine Hamas Firing Rockets On YOUR City — What Would You Do?

Hamas rock­ets are now reach­ing Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, with mil­lions of Israelis now under the direct threat of attack.

When sirens sound warn­ing of an incom­ing rocket, no mat­ter where you are or what you are doing – tak­ing  a shower, shop­ping for food, in the class­room, going to work – you have 15 sec­onds to reach shel­ter or risk being killed or injured.

Imag­ine Hamas rock­ets being within range of your home­town.  What would you do if a siren sounded warn­ing of incom­ing rocket attack?  Where would you go?  What would you want your gov­ern­ment to do to stop it?

Khatami also said the “Zion­ist regime winds up” the Demo­c­ra­tic and Repub­lic par­ties like “pup­pets” behind the scene.

Khatami praised Hamas’s fight against Israel and used the pul­pit to voice the Iran­ian regime’s sup­port for the ter­ror­ist group, say­ing that “the Zion­ist regime’s prospects have dark­ened in the face of Gaza’s resistance …”
