  2. A note from Tel Aviv

    I received this email today from a very dear friend of my family who lives in Tel Aviv. He has lived through many difficult situations in Israel, and is always the last to worry or acknowledge that there is ever any reason to be afraid. This email tonight, however, was different. We sent him an email to check in and see how he was doing. This was his response:

    ***

    Well I started to answer and write you that everything is ok…

    But as I started to type - there was a strong alarm all around Tel Aviv and the center of Israel. First time for the alarm in Tel Aviv in 20 years (since the Gulf War)…

    It was terrifying… We, the Tel Aviv spoiled people, got shocked as 1 alarm played the music. The southern part of Israel is getting hundreds (!!!) of rockets and alarms in the last 2 weeks… and we were quiet… lived as usual …

    What I want to say is you can’t understand the fear until you get it yourself… People live there in the south of Israel as they live in a battle field … it’s 2012 and people live in Israel as if it’s a 3rd world war country…

    I am looking at myself running as a mouse in a cage to the shelter as the alarm started, calling the family to make sure everybody is ok, and its crazy!

    And this is nothing compare to what happening 30 km south from Tel Aviv…

    Its unbelievable and this situation makes this IDF campaign in Gaza so right…the support for this operation is from wall to wall…

    We planned to have a nice gastronomic trip to Jerusalem tomorrow, us and about 10 of our close friends, but the parents among us are afraid to leave the children at home alone… and how old are their children? They are 15-20 years old…

    It’s crazy I tell you

    It’s midnight here now, and I expect this night to get worse…

    I didn’t mean to make you worry more but the situation here is reminding me of the Gulf War.. Don’t know what to expect…

    Hoping for a good night…

    Thank you for the mail and for caring..
