Hezbollah Terrorists Kill Muslim Children

While Hezbollah is known for its visceral hatred of Jews, today we saw once again that its determination to kill civilians knows no bounds. Hezbollah terrorists today killed three Arab Muslims in the city of Nazareth. Two of the victims were children, Muhammad (age 3) and Rabiya Taluzi (age 9). They were in a playground in that city’s Arab neighborhood when they were struck by a Katyusha rocket. [note: the original entry mistakenly referred to a Qassam rocket]

Nazareth is considered the home of Jesus, and many Christians have since made their home there. [note: the entry originally said "the birthplace of Jesus." Most Christians believe Bethlehem is his birthplace. See comments below.] Currently the majority of Nazareth’s population are Israeli Arab Muslims, in addition to many Christian Arabs. But Hezbollah fires its rockets indiscriminately into Israeli territory, aiming randomly at population centers. With these latest murders, Hezbollah has demonstrated that no civilian--whatever his religion-- is immune from the indiscriminate terror that they have unleashed.

Bethlehem is considered by Christians to be the birthplace of Jesus.

Most do say Bethlehem. Some say Nazereth:

Small (well, big) mistake, the children were not hit by a Qassam "home made" rocket which the paletinians use to strike Israeli cities. They were hit with a Katyusha rocket, a standard production military weapon with a much greater punch.
