'Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations.'
This one was different.
Yes, the missile and rocket fire into the population centers of southern Israel caused panic, anxiety and quite a bit of understandable distress. As in previous wars, I, along with many other behavioral health clinicians, were called upon to help man special "stress teams" that worked with local officials dealing with the many issues that could develop in a population under constant threat.

Government has detected more than 44 million attempts to disrupt its websites since Nov. 14.
Hackers attempted to launch more than 1 million cyberattacks against Israeli government websites over a 24-hour period from Sunday to Monday, with more than 1,000 sites being hacked, Israel Hayom reported.
The most prominent attacks were against military industry websites, during which hackers apparently tried extracting information about the Iron Dome missile defense system, as well as other military systems.
The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted one of two missiles fired at the Tel Aviv area.
The missiles fired on Sunday morning, the fifth day of what the Israeli military has dubbed Operation Pillar of Defense, mark at least four missiles fired from Gaza at one of Israel's major population centers.
A U.S. House of Representatives Armed Services subcommittee authorized $680 million for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.
The approval came during the Strategic Forces subcommittee’s markup on Thursday of the fiscal year 2013 National Defense Authorization Act. A markup is when a subcommittee votes to refer a bill to the full committee; the act in question authorizes defense spending.
New round of rocket attacks from Gaza blunted by defensive shield.

Taking cover next to the wall of a supermarket, a cross section of Israelis looked skyward and waited for the Iron Dome missiles to intercept a barrage of Palestinian rockets. Inconvenience was more palpable than actual fear.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel remains on alert against an attack from Sinai despite killing the terrorist leader that was planning an attack from there -- an assassination that has led to a barrage of rockets raining down on southern Israel from Gaza by terrorist groups.
