Lost Love in Gaza

If there is an Israeli Nicholas Sparks, let him now step forward. Residents of the Israeli beach town of Ashkelon recently found a message in a bottle on one of their beaches. Inside was a note written in Arabic that read, “I love you, I'm crazy about you, and I pray that God never separates us. You changed my life…you're my life, you're my eyes." No word on the letter’s author, but residents speculate that he lives in Gaza, as “large quantities of waste” from Gaza often wash up on Ashkelon’s beaches. "This is very touching and heart-warming," one man commented. "There's also some sadness involved, as this letter ultimately did not reach the man's lover.”
