I love how the EU says essentially “we support Israel’s right to defend itself — stop defending yourself.” The rockets have continued to rain down on southern Israel today. They have been trying the tactic of shooting off 5 to 10 rockets at a time in the hopes of overwhelming the Iron Dome system and getting some through. Protesters in the “West Bank” (Judea and Samaria) are getting quite violent. Protesters in Belgium were calling for all Jews to be gassed. Obama’s State Department has announced they are ready to end the diplomatic isolation of…Hamas.
Teaching today was interesting. More than half of my students were not in class. Many have been called up to the reserves but many others did not come because the U.S. Embassy issued some announcement that Americans living south of Herzliya should not attend or travel to school. Shame they weren’t more worried about their embassy staff in Benghazi.
I am really tired but am back at manning the twitter account with updates and passing on information in realtime.
