ISLAM GOOD DEED OF THE DAY: Thai farmworker killed in jihadist rocket attack on Israel

Gaza Rocket Attack Into Israel Kills a Thai Worker- 5 hours ago

A foreign worker in Israel was killed Thursday by a rocket fired from the Hamas-controlled Palestinian territory of Gaza, according to the Israeli military, soon after the European Union’s top foreign policy official arrived here on a rare visit by such a high-ranking official.

The foreign agricultural worker, who the Israeli military said was from Thailand, was the first fatality from Gaza rocket fire since the end of a three-week Israeli military offensive into Gaza in January 2009. Israel said the primary purpose of its military campaign was to halt years of rocket fire from Gaza against southern Israel.

The rocket on Thursday struck an Israeli cooperative farm called Nativ Haasara, near the Gaza border.
