From Sderot Is Us:
Every night, Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal tours his city, checking the number of houses with lights on. At its height, Sderot had a population of 24,000, but now, with the refugees whom Hamas chased out being scattered throughout the country, no more than 10,000 people remain in the city. Sderot is the litmus test that will teach us what we can expect in the future. The struggle for Sderot should be viewed as a struggle for Israeli sovereignty. Sderot is all of us. We rise and fall with Sderot.
