Israeli Girl: "I Don't Know Why" Media Overlook Rocket Fire from Gaza

In July 2008, during the 6-month "truce" or "calm" agreement involving Israel and Hamas, 12 rockets and mortars were fired into southern Israel.

That same month, a young Israeli girl named Dana from Kibbutz Nir Am recorded an emotional description of the trauma caused by the relentless Palestinian rocket attacks targeting the south of Israel. While explaining what life is like life under the threat of indiscriminate attacks, she also referred to the scant media coverage of her plight:

Everyone living in our area knows it's just -- [the "calm"] is just for now, it's only these few months. Every now and then, we get a Qassam bomb to our direction. The media doesn't speak about it, I don't know why.

Why is she crying over bombs that do damage similar to that of a large boulder?

Aidan, do you have large boulders thrown at your town on a regular basis? You ever had one land next to you? 11 to 22 pounds of explosives makes a pretty big bang.
