Cause for celebration:

Gunmen from the Al-Quds Brigades, Islamic Jihad's armed wing, are shooting in the air in the Gaza Strip and broadcasting messages through mosque loudspeakers.

They are celebrating the Qassam rocket attack on Sderot that caused the grave injury of two brothers aged eight and 19.

Yes. An eight year old boy losing his leg in a terrorist attack is a good reason for celebration. Most Qassams cause damage and fear. But every once a while, they strike gold, as in this case. A good enough reason to continue to launch them, maybe if enough are launched often, more kids will be maimed or better still, killed. Joy!

As the Jewish sages said: If you labour hard enough, you will be rewarded... Only the Sages, in their typically Jewish intransigent way, meant to educate their flock in the way of achieving excellence, through study and hard work.

This is how Palestinian sages educate their flock.
