Please hang in there and continue reporting. The job was begun by the “Palestinians” and now it’s time for Israel to finish it. Permanently if possible, if not permanently then for a very long time. As I wrote before, “The situation is likely to get worse before it gets better, but we can all hope (and those who pray can pray as well) and keep Israel in our thoughts. May it get better soon and before many more Israeli lives are lost.”

Apologies for the delay in this update. I ended up being out of town for Shabbat and am still catching up.
I had planned to stay home (home is Petach Tikva, a town about 15 km east of Tel Aviv) for Shabbat, even with my husband away on business, and was invited out for Shabbat meals. On Friday midday my older daughter called inviting me for Shabbat (she lives in a town in the Shomron, aka Samaria aka West Bank). I reassured her that I was fine. “No”, she explained, her husband, a Rabbi and officer in the IDF, was called in to stay on base for Shabbat because of a sudden change of plans, (no surprise there considering the situation) so would I come to keep her (and 5 noisy kids) company. I dithered a bit until I heard another missile hit Tel Aviv – this time I heard the actual explosion although no siren was operated here – and that made up my mind. Off to the Wild and Woolly West Bank I went.
