I’m getting tired of writing these emails to my sister to send to my Mom. Three times in 3 months, twice with bulldozers and last night with a new Beemer, residents of East Jerusalem have tried to indiscriminately squash, crush or run over random residents of Jerusalem – in parts of town that I frequent. You can read about it here, here and here (where Ehud Barack calls for the demolition of the kid’s house). Was 19 year old Qassem Mughrabi a Hamas member? An angry teenager pissed at having his marriage proposal refused by his cousin? All of the above? I don’t know. All I know is that Qassem injured 13 people and seconds later he was shot by an off duty officer. Jerusalem residents are getting tired of this. I almots didn’t blog about it. But I just installed a video comment feature and want to use it to show my Mom that I am indeed in one piece.

Let’s hear it for continued bodily integrity! Yay!
