Philip Weiss passed on this info about the protest in Gaza Saturday: Mondoweiss.
The universalist impulse in Jewish and Arab life continues to be shut out of our press in favor of the parochial. You wouldn't know it, but on Saturday, over 1000 Israelis--Israeli Jews and Palestinians--led a convoy of cars from Tel Aviv to the wall at Gaza to bring food and supplies to try and relieve the suffering of the Gazans. Across the wall in Gaza, there was a protest by the Arabs there. A spectacular event. Here are pictures of the relief convoy...
Read Weiss' post for a description of the actual protest by an eyewitness.
Weiss asks why we didn't see reports of this in the US press? I knew vaguely about the convoy but was busy throwing a large party for my son on Sunday so I didn't keep up (after blogging myself silly over the death of George Habash). A search now shows that indeed it did not seem to make the AP or even AFP news wire.
WTF is wrong with our press?
Thanks to the internet we can find out the real news anyway.
