About an hour and a half ago, we had a Code Red missile alert in Jerusalem – right in the middle of my favourite TV series, “The White Queen”. So I rushed down to the bomb shelter (where I discovered that the electric lights weren’t working), together with some half dozen neighbours, including two little girls who didn’t stop crying. After a few minutes, another neighbour said she had heard 3 booms coming from the direction of the Arab village across the road. So we decided that it was safe to emerge and went back, each of us to our own apartments.
I missed five critical minutes of “The White Queen”. Of course I can re-run it tomorrow on HOT V.O.D. – but since I then watched it to the end of today’s episode, there’s not much point.
Still, it spoilt the evening’s viewing. That’s another black mark against Hamas.
If there’s another Code Red Alert this evening and it screws up the broadcast of the World Cup Semi-Final between Brazil and Germany, I’ll never forgive those terrorist bastards 😉 .
