Muslim rocket threat reaches Judea/Samaria

Of course it was bound to happen, yet they'd rather you not think it. From Israel National News:
The threat of rocket attacks from areas in Judea and Samaria now controlled by the Palestinian Authority is becoming real, but the IDF has yet to respond.

According to WorldNetDaily’s Jerusalem Bureau Chief Aaron Klein, the government has been minimizing the threat, due to the risk of adverse publicity that would reflect on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, jeopardizing his unilateral withdrawal plan.

Some terror groups within the PA-controlled territories have acquired rocket technology, including the Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades, which on Monday fired two rockets from Jenin, aimed at a nearby IDF military installation.

An IDF spokesman officially denied the report. However, according to Klein, a security official confirmed on condition of anonymity that the Jenin-1 rockets, less advanced Kassams with a range of approximately one mile, were indeed fired this week.

There have been a number of reports in the past of such rockets fired from northern Shomron, with preliminary denials from the IDF and later announcements that some rockets actually were, in fact, launched in the area.

Knesset Member Effie Eitam (National Union), said yesterday that any Judea and Samaria withdrawal will result in rockets fired a major Israeli cities.

"Aside from the short-range rockets the Palestinians have now, it is just a question of time before they obtain longer-range missiles from Iran. Regardless, Olmert's withdrawal will give the terrorists land bordering our major cities," said Eitam, who serves on the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

"Israel withdrew from Lebanon in 2000. Now Hezbollah has over 10,000 missiles on the border pointed at us. Israel evacuated Gaza last summer. The missiles are flying out every day," Eitam stated. "There is no doubt a withdrawal from Judea and Samaria will bring a rocket war to Israel."
The good news is that, as reported this Friday in Makor Rishon, a delegation has organized for going to Washington to discuss the matters with US Congress. I should hope that they'll do a good job.
