I think I'll move to Sderot.

"Illana Madmoni, a second-grade teacher at the Kibbutz said that it used to break her heart to have nothing to say to comfort the children durin
g the silence between the Color Red alarm and the impact. “There was fear in their eyes the moment the alarm went off. The void during that alarm, where everyone was silent and they were just hiding there helpless." Then, a teacher came along and choreographed a fun song with therapeutic movements aimed to calm, reassure and even bring joy to the children. "Now they are not only less afraid, but the actions and movement empower them and they feel they have overcome the attack and are moving forward.”"


VOICES FROM SDEROT: a glimpse into the lives of the courageous, soldier-like civilians living in Sderot and the Western Negev.

Wouldn't the energy be better spent convincing people from both sides that irrelevant of military power the only way to a lasting peace is a fair sharing of land? Far away eyes can see clearer sometimes, and it seems very obvious that a constant torture of a people will only make them stronger and more stiff willed to fight - as Jews and gypsies did after the holocost, how Ireland did against England. I don't suggest giving up - just realising that winnign is not all about killing or winnign a fight. It is about getting an outcome where all are able to co-exist. It is nto about the other side losing, it is about your side winning.

Please read what I just commented by my post 'more merkaz news'. (sorry for not linking properly)

There is no fair sharing of the land. G-d (and common sense)says so.

I would like to move to Sderot because strong as they are, the people living there can still use encouragement. Yes, I want them to be stronger and more stiff willed to fight.
It's not about winning or losing, anonymous. It's about keeping our lives and about doing what G-d said we must.
