Israel: Terrifying Conversation from Sderot

Israeli blogger Stephanie posts an IM chat between Sderot resident Shlomo and a friend sitting at a business meeting in another part of Israel. “In our day/age of YouTube, BlackBerry, IM and the power of “instant”, the effect of someone chatting to another person in real time during a rocket hit is quite surprising,” she notes. According to Aussie Dave: There seems to be no respite for Sderot, towards where 30 Qassams were directed yesterday. Already today, a number of Qassams have struck the western Negev, including one that struck a high school. Today's wounded include a mother and her nine-year-old daughter who are suffering from shock.
