Sderot disses the Knesset

Israel Radio reported this evening that a Sderot organization dedicated to the quality of life of the town's residents dissed the Knesset this afternoon. According to the report, Gvanim (shades of color), an organization dedicated to improving the life of the 'development town' (read: mostly poor, mostly Sephardi) residents was given an award by Knesset speaker Itzik for its work in the town. The managing director, Itay Schreiber, got up and said that although they are grateful for the award, they cannot in good conscience accept it when Sderot's residents cannot live quietly.

With that, Schreiber, and tens of supporters in the gallery, opened their shirts to reveal red t-shirts that said "We want to live quietly in Sderot" and walked out of the Knesset.

Knesset speaker Itzik said she was 'sympathetic.'

For those of you who don't believe anything until you see it in writing on the web, you can find it here.
