Gaza: The Power Of Names

Small post this one, spurred by a sudden mini-epiphany – why is it that we know what Hamas’ rockets are called yet we don’t know what Israeli rockets and missiles are called? Most will know of the Qassam rocket (those Guy Fawkes night whizzbangs), and some may know of the Grad rockets, but what of those arriving and falling on Gaza, far more powerful, far more accurate? Israeli love bites? Or petals from Tel Aviv?

Or shall we just call them Death falling from the sky?
