As you may have heard, Israel has been under rocket fire from Hamas this past week (as in, more than usual). Hamas is trying to drag Israel into a ground operation, despite the heavy costs it will bring to both sides.
I am in the northern part of Israel and thus far mostly unaffected - if you don't count the time wasted watching the news.
But worry not - I think I've worked out the source of the problem!
get the man a snickers.
