Since I could not think of something meaningful to say about yesterday's horrible train accident in the northern part of the Negev, I decided not to write about it. That is, until I read an article on the frontpage of today's Ha'Aretz titled "Anti-pullout protests postponed due to train wreck". "Oh," I thought, "the opponents of disengagement show repsect for the people who died and were wounded in the accident". But no, not really. The plans to block traffic at major junctions throughout the country were postponed because the train wreck "would make it impossible to get proper media attention".
