Everyone's OK... except us!

The following three headlines (in the order they appeared on the JPost site) perfectly sum up the problem with Israel's place in the hierarchy of international priorities:

Egypt urges rival Palestinian factions to end divisions

At start of reconciliation talks, Egyptian intelligence chief tells Palestinian leaders: "Your people are looking forward to the beginning of unity."
 

'Turkey should continue peace role'

US Mideast envoy tells Turkish PM that Turkey can have significant influence on our efforts in region.
 

2 houses damaged in Kassam strike

Sha'ar Hanegev, Sderot hit as Palestinians fire two rockets from Gaza; none wounded in either attack.
 
The Palestinians are OK because Egypt is helping Fatah and Hamas make nice and get along with each other.
 
The Turks are OK, because they are being lauded by the US as key players in helping to achieve peace in the region.
 
The Israelis are OK because we're finally back to only having two or three missiles hit our towns and cities every day. 
 
Wait...  we're not really OK here.  Is anyone out there listening??!

No, Trep, no one is out there listening, because the world doesn't care if Israelis are OK or not.

You left out the part where Israel is blamed for everything, especially by the Obama administration.

On the bright side, I doubt that, once in office, Netanyahu will allow "business as usual" to continue unchecked.

On the not-so-bright side, that's what we all said when Arik Sharon was elected... :(

Trep,

Do not despair! Some of us are not only listening, we're spreading the word -- Israel must win!
