I'm back

I returned today from two weeks of army reserve duty in the Jordan Valley, patrolling the Israeli-Jordanian border. An interesting experience, driving around in a jeep on Shabbat with a driver named Yasser.

I also spent two days on guard at Naharayim. Since the peace treaty, the inlet just over the border has been named the Isle of Peace. Rather ironic, since the site is dominated by a huge monument to the 14 year old girls who were murdered there in 1997. To add another surreal dimension to it, the grass of the monument is cut by robots.

I'm glad to be back.
