Day #23 of 28: 4-Jan-2009

Gaza/Israel Conflict
Most of the "official" spokespersons regardless of their name, title, and gender all sound like this:

a real throw-back to the 80's: limited vocabulary, limited phrases, completely random but repetitive.

Jerusalem: From my hotel window this morning, watched children with bookpacks on going to school. Yes, it's Sunday, but this is Jerusalem, afterall. Watching them reminded me that for them this is just another day in their lives here. Where just 100km away, it's truly a warzone. Active. Bloodied. Bombarded. Shrouded in death. The contrast couldn't be greater.

Gaza: ground incursion started sunset last night.
