    On Sunday, I went down to Soroka hospital in Be’er Sheva and met with families of Bedouin Israelis whose children have been injured by rocket attacks. It was important for me to go, to support these families, to let them know that despite the tensions between Jews and Arabs in Israel today, that there are many of us committed to building a shared future.
