The “nonviolent” intifada, now with Grad rockets! A rocket landed on the outskirts of Ashkelon. Good to know that Mahmoud Abbas is heeding Netanyahu’s calls to calm his people down. Because the rocket was launched by Fatah’s al-Aqsa Martyr’s Brigade. You know, part of that oh-so-convenient terrorist military wing.

Right. Nonviolent: Soldiers hurt. Riots throughout the West Bank. Sure. Nonviolent.
