Redefinition of ceasefire holds

Inevitable follow-up to the Beeb report quoted here: the ceasefire in which Hamas have kindly reduced the number of rockets fired at Sderot has now been broken by... yes, you guessed. The bastards. The utter bastards.

(update: sorry, I forgot to include the link. Here it is)

Cheer up, Cyrus. Did you expect any different? As of about 24 hours ago, after 11 days of 'ceasefire' there had been 18 rockets—getting on for two a day. I didn't learn this from the BBC, Reuters or AP; I had to look in the Jerusalem Post. The fact that (a) the pre-ceasefire level of attack went largely unreported, (b) this is actually a decrease and (c) not considered significant enough to report either, says everything there is to say about Western media attitudes.

I'm not a Christian, but I think Christianity teaches the virtue of being steadfast in the face of adversity. I think that's good advice. You have to just keep on telling people what's true—which you do, and for which my thanks.

Paul, the last two sentences were meant as a satirical comment on the BBC's view that a ceasefire is not broken by rockets fired at civilian settlements - maybe that wasn't clear. No despair here!
