I owe my readers an apology for an error I made in my previous entry "The Numbers Game". I stated that the Israeli towns and villages of the western Negev have been subject to terrorist rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip for five years. I have been reminded that even before Hamas actually took power in Gaza, they were accustomed to commit these acts of aggression against Israeli civilians living within rocket range of the Gaza Strip. In fact, the rocket attacks – though less intensive – date back to the second intifada, which started in the year 2000. That’s eight years, my friends, not five. I have corrected the blog entry in question. My deepest apologies to the citizens of Sderot and the other towns bordering Hamasland for my unintentional omission of a further three years of suffering.

About Shimona from the Palace

Born in London, the UK, I came on Aliyah in my teens and now live in Jerusalem, where I practice law. I am a firm believer in the words of Albert Schweitzer: "There are two means of refuge from the sorrows of this world - Music and Cats." To that, you can add Literature. To curl up on the sofa with a good book, a cat at one's feet and another one on one's lap, with a classical symphony or concerto in the background - what more can a person ask for?
