Remember those news shows that give you a quick round up of what’s happening? Well, that’s what I’m after. A few paragraphs to tell you what Israel looks like from this side of the water.
Sadly once again too much heat and violence. First, we’ll start with some miracles – always a good place to begin.
First miracle is that Shula Malka is doing better. She was attacked last week and stabbed repeatedly in the chest. Next up – the IDF announced that it cracked yet another terror cell. This one was about to launch terror attacks in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Nasty stuff! And yet another miracle.
