No, this story did not appear in the Age - Israeli kids return to fortress high school. It appeared in today's Australian.

Neither did the story of last week's missile attacks on the civilians of Sderot appear in the Age.

When Ruth Pollard writes about children in the region, she writes about Palestinian children under threat but the stories come from anonymous sources. Her story on Monday was grotesque in that it overshadowed a report about hundreds massacred in Syria.

Even more grotesque is the lack of context and the failure to mention that Palestinian terrorist groups have routinely used children as human shields and to assist in their murderous operations.

Not to mention the burning question of where was the Age when four victims of the Toulouse terrorist attack were laid to rest in Israel a few months ago.
