(Two days ago.) While I’m up in the mulberry tree, gorging on the plenty of ripe fruit, above me I hear the roaring of several military aircrafts, probably on their way to Gaza.
Sometimes the reality in this country is so absurd. And so sad. Right now I just feel lucky that the missiles from Gaza have not reached us here in the north (there were also a few rockets from Lebanon…) . We avoid driving through Arab populated areas, with whom we are normally on friendly terms. I have a great car mechanic in our neighboring Arab town. Sadly, I won’t have my car serviced by him this year.
I believe in dialog, paired with the serious wish of all sides involved to find a peaceful solution, even if this means having to make concessions . This government lacks both. So sad. And stupid on the long run. Israel, together with its Arab population and neighbors, could be a flourishing oasis of cooperation projects in so many fields. Together is always stronger than one against the other.
