Egypt fires rockets at Israel—the first hostilities between the two countries since the peace treaty in 1979

The Weekly Standard reports (linked at Drudge):

Two major Israeli newspapers are reporting that rockets fired from Egypt have hit Israel.

“Terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula launched rockets into Israel Friday night,” reports the Jerusalem Post. “The rockets fell near an Israeli village on the southern border, causing some damage, but no injuries.”

The Israeli daily Haaretz reports, “Rockets fired from direction of Egypt toward Eshkol Regional Council.”

It appears no damage was reported in connection with the rocket fire from Egypt. Earlier today, the Egyptian prime minister visited Gaza to express solidarity with the Palestinians there.

Now will the same Weekly Standard, edited by the always smiling William Kristol, also admit that Obama’s toppling of Mubarak, which led to democratic elections, which led to the take-over of the country by a Muslim Brotherhood government, which is now firing rockets at Israel, wasn’t a good idea? Nope. They will say that we failed to “manage” Egyptian democracy carefully enough.
