“Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes, it’s awful!”
After all the brouhaha, youth in the seaside settlement of Shirat Hayam are stuck waiting for
“Aw, there’s nothing happening here,” said one disappointed boy at Shirat Hayam, as he abandoned the barricaded gate to the Gush Katif settlement.
Even journalists are getting bored:
“What the hell are we doing here?” complained a foreign journalist, who had waited in vain like a suitor stood up by a date for soldiers to force open the gate and deliver evacuation orders to the residents.
Another reporter from the Jpost compares them to a different work of literature — Lord of the Flies, led by a 20 something curly haired boy called Melech. Almost like summer camp on the beach, (if your summer camp had no counsels, lots of guns, and swarms of press cameras waiting for something international incident to happen), these kids are quoted wishing for non violence and “chocolate cake, thick and with sprinkles.”
Amen to that!
