Islamic Jihad tries to attack Europe, fails.

For the first time, Islamic Jihad has tried to attack targets in Europe from the Gaza Strip. The militant group apparently fired a Qassam missile in the direction of Cyprus hoping that Allah would miraculously expand the projectile's range from a mere 8 km to 400 km while in the air.

How else can this piece of news be explained?:
In total, IDF forces identified at least 10 Qassam launchings from Gaza toward Israeli targets – six landed in Gaza, one apparently landed in the ocean and the rest in Israeli territory.

Well, it´s a good thing then that the Quassam is only a small missile. At least according to German public radio. They recently said that Palestinians fired "small missiles into Israel". No reason for the Israelis to get upset. I think it was Bayern 5 news radio. I´m sure they would keep their journalistic detachment if someone occasionally lobbed 5-10 kilos of explosives in the general direction of their offices. Right...
