The Wages of Sin and the Reward of Virtue

The Israeli government has relaxed the siege on Gaza and is now allowing almost free passage to supplies for Hamasland – with the exception, of course, of weapons. 150 truckloads , double the amount which was entering the Gaza Strip daily during the fake "humanitarian crisis", is now crossing the border every day. And Hamas’s "thank you" was swift to arrive. A Kassam rocket landed this morning in one of the settlements of the Sdot Hanegev Regional Council, causing heavy damage to a packing plant. Fortunately, thanks to the early hour, the workers had not yet arrived and there were no casualties. Divine providence, or just sheer good luck, call it what you will.

I haven’t been giving you all daily updates, because if I did so, this blog would be nothing more than a list of Hamas violations of the "ceasefire" on the Israel – Gaza border, but since we’re on the subject, the day before yesterday, the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council area was subjected to mortar fire from the northern Gaza Strip.

They say virtue is its own reward, don’t they?
I have yet to see/feel it.


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?
