BBC missed the point!

Recieved this in an email from a friend:

Whilst listening to the BBC World Service's report on the health of Ariel Sharon , this past Motzei Shabbos, I could not help myself from laughing aloud.

The BBC Correspondent reported how the journalists camped outside Haddassah Hospital had just watched a group of Ultra-Orthodox Jews come outside the hospital building, raise their heads up to the seventh floor, where Sharon was recuperating, and sing some prayers for his recovery.

I guess the BBC's Correspondent had never seen Kiddush Levanah before.
