What Happens When a Fly Falls Into a Cup of Coffee

Throws his cup in disgust and walks away.

Removes the insect and drinks the coffee.

Eats the insect and throws the coffee away.

Sells the coffee to the American and the insect to the Chinese and gets himself a new cup of coffee.

Accuses the Israeli for throwing the insect into his coffee.
Takes a loan from the EU to buy a new coffee.
Uses the loan money to buy explosives.
Blows up the coffee shop in which the Englishman, the American, and the Chinese are busy telling the Israeli that he is too aggressive.

Many adaptations of the above run on the Internet (including variations in which the Israeli is the villain) but this one is my favorite.

Back From Israel

Nothing much to report. In Tel Aviv the war was only on TV, much like in the USA. My daughters, Noa and Emma, did go twice to a bomb shelter when the siren sounded while they were staying with their aunt in Yokneam.

Here are some pictures: Eating Hummus, Watching a Soccer Game, Tel Aviv Beach with Debora and my Nieces, Jerusalem - Western Wall, NOT Smoking a Cigarette (while visiting my brother).

My brother is still on the Israeli Lebanese border with his paratroopers reserve unit. May he return home safely soon.
