Thank you, American Jews. Love, Sderot

Local | WorldPublished: 06 March 2009

For about a week, Sderot Mayor David Bouskila got a break from the rain of rockets upon his city.

It’s not that the rockets stopped falling, but Bouskila was out of town, traveling around the United States last week on a thank-you tour of American Jewish organizations that have sent money to help his beleaguered city.

HERZLIYA, Israel – Hamas’ survival intact in its recent war with Israel constitutes de facto Israeli recognition of a militarized Palestinian state on Israel’s doorstep.

Across the ocean, Americans appeared excited by their president-elect and moved by an election considered a watershed for race relations in America. The country, it seemed, was turning a new page of history.

By contrast, Israel is entering an election campaign that seems mired in the past.
