This was just sent to me by Ben Chesterton of 'Mighty Duckrabbit' fame. It is a great example of the things we don't discuss when we talk about any situation in the middle east.
Each time a new squabble arises and the boys rattle their missiles at each other or the dispossession of one bunch of people allows for the possession of another bunch, someone gets hurt. And its always the women, the mothers, the sisters and the daughters. They are the left behind. The ones that deal with the shadows of your absence. They are the ones they weep forever of a broken heart.
