Lost for words…

For months the town of Sderot, situated in the South of Israel, has been bombarded by hundered of Kassam rockets from Gazza. You may not know about this, because, as I discovered when I googled Sderot, only certain newspapers have actually been printing the news:

Sderot: 20 seconds to take cover – November 22, 2006 15:16

Hamas: Jews must evacuate – November 22, 2006 14:01

Sderot: Qassam lands near school – November 22, 2006 09:14

Sderot rocket victim dies of his wounds – November 21, 2006 00:08

Three Israelis injured in Sderot – November 19, 2006 13:30

And what has the international press had to say about this?

BBC – November 22, 2006 10:38

The Guardian – November 22, 2006 14:15

I am neither shocked nor suprised nor even offended that the international press has forgotten about Sderot. I think the people of Sderot feel like even Israel herself has forgotten about Sderot. “The path to Auschwitz was paved with indifference.” Sorry, just something I read today…

I was once a Yorkshire lass, I guess I still am, but after moving to London and then on to Tel Aviv, New York and then back to Tel Aviv again, I wonder how much of the Yorkshire lass is left. The adventure continues and although many see my life as an extended episode of Seinfeld (you are free to laugh), I can also empathise with the Buddhist thought of life as our punishment. I guess the important part is the love that you carry with you through life’s journey and my back often feels the joyous strain of the weight of the love I carry.
