"Mere fireworks" vs. "proudly manufactured" Qassams

To a Western audience, here is how PalArabs describe Qassams:
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli TV Channel Two broadcast an interview on Thursday with the Palestinian Prime Minister's advisor, Dr Ahmad Yousef, in which Yousef described the homemade projectiles launched from the Gaza Strip at Israel as "fireworks".
But in their own media they look at Qassam rockets as scientific breakthroughs and proof of Arab ingenuity as they keep trying to "improve" them. From Ma'an Arabic (autotranslated):
The Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees claimed responsibility for shelling the town of Sderot missile new aircraft Nasser 4 medium term.

The brigade sent Ma'an a copy of which was able to rocket bombardment of Sderot new aircraft Nasser 4 medium term were tested for the first time successfully at the town of Sderot. "

The brigade : "The Nasser rocket 4 advantage and the extent of the largest capital explosive device detonated greater precedent, which would have a deep impact on the destructive power."
Notice how the development stage of Palestinian Arab weapons R&D uses live Jewish women and children as guinea pigs.
