To the JPOST: Acting Together
Sir, - Thanks to The Jerusalem Post for being the only mainstream media covering a Sderot delegation's and Take-A-Pen's joint demonstration at the UN compound in Jerusalem on October 21 ("Sderot residents present a letter to UN..."). As described, a busload of Sderot citizens came to Jerusalem to call the Jerusalem-based UNSCO's attention again to Sderot's ongoing suffering, now into its ninth year, and to demonstrate against the UNHRC's Goldstone Report and the subsequent UNHRC resolution blaming all suffering on Israel, which after unprecedented self-restraint finally fought to stop Hamas.
A clarification is due regarding the documents handed over to the UN. Take-A-Pen submitted to the UN its global petition, endorsing its earlier Open Letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, headed "Hamas Leaders to Trial for War Crimes." This was not a letter and petition from Sderot. We were proud to be together during the submission, and young residents of Sderot held high the first pages of Take-A-Pen's letter and petition, which has been signed by 90,000 people from around the world.
