Blogging the Israeli/Palestinian Hostilities

You should go read “Life must go on in Gaza and Sderot.” Not because the writers are important, but because they aren’t. Because they are simply two men, writing from the front lines, caught in the crossfire, and telling a story that all of us should hear. Please take a moment to visit their blog and sign their petition for a cease fire:

This blog is written by 2 friends. One lives in Sajaia refugee camp in Gaza and the other lives in Sderot, a small town near Gaza on the Israeli side. There is ongoing violence between Israel and Gaza which has intensified greatly since October 2000. Many have been killed and many have been injured. The media coverage on both sides has been extremely biased. Our Blog is written by 2 real people living and communicating on both sides of the border.

This is the kind of site that means something, that demonstrates that normal, everyday people want to get past the violence, past the bloodshed and build bridges of understanding and hope.
