I feel that it’s appropriate to say something about the hitnatkut (withdrawl from Gaza). But I don’t know what. People are shooting other people, lighting themselves on fire, destroying their cars and all their belongings. And I think it’s only going to get worse in the next few days.
I’m praying that everybody will try to stay safe and get through this with as little trauma as possible.
I’m also praying that this shakes down in such a way that it leaves more open (as opposed to less open) the much bigger, and messier issue: the West Bank. We’re going to have to give that back too, at some point. I hope people realize this.
ETA: Oh, it’s just so painful. Very wrenching photos here.
