Gee, Jameel...Do I need this?

One of the best ways to know what was happening during the recent war in Gaza and now during the recent so-called "cease-fire" - is to regularly check out the Muqata. So...I checked out Muqata today to find out how many rockets or mortars were fired at Israel today, as opposed to yesterday and the day before.

So, what do I find there?
10:52 PM What's going on up North? Many IDF soldiers these days will tell you about all the "tension" up North...on Israel's Northern border. Was it the underground tunnel discovered 2 weeks ago, meant to be used for a Hizbollah attack on Israel or kidnapping of IDF soldiers? Tonight on Channel 2 TV, Defense Minister Ehud Barak alluded to weapons on their way to South Lebanon which would affect the security of the "skies over Lebanon" for IAF warplanes.Obviously, Israel cannot allow for cutting edge anti-aircraft batteries to be imported to South Lebanon...so it's only a matter of time for Israel to ensure these weapons systems do not arrive.

Finally got Elie away from Gaza...figure he's safe in the north (ok, I never really figured that he was "safe" there, but I was at least hoping for some quiet). they found a tunnel up there that could have been used to kidnap IDF soldiers. Wonderful...just wonderful.

Well, gee, do I need this, Jameel? Oh well...

(Sigh.) Yeah, Mamaleh. You know the answer to that one. Same as I do. Jameel will keep reporting. You and I will keep reading -- and praying. And Elie and Josh will just keep on keepin' on.

May we share good news, and decades of smachot, surrounding all our children.

Would you prefer I only post about Waffles and Funny videos?

Um...yeah - that would be great. Thanks, Jameel. Perfect. Recipes for waffles would be great...funny videos...just super, really super. So glad you understand! Yes, that will work just perfectly!

Don't worry, Jameel. She's just a little hysterical. She'll get over it. After the war(s). Here, Sweetie. Dab your eyes with this waffle. That's a girl. Don't you feel better now?

A Soldier's Mother said...

Yeah...I'm really great...except...how do I get the crumbs out of my eyes! And the syrup...don't ask!

Hey Ruti - Josh's article was beyond amazing. Kol Hakavod to him...and you. Just so so beautiful!

Oh no! I can't do another round of round the clock war updates and reporting on the Muqata.

A Soldier's Mother said...

ok. Agreed. Who calls Nasrallah to tell them that this is not a convenient time to go to war?
