  1. For me, at least living as I do on the "outskirts of Jewish civilization", this collation or anthology (call it what you wish) of stories I might otherwise have missed has become a prime reason for reading Life In Israel.

    Well done, Rafi G, and please do your best to continue your thankless work for as long as you are able! Over here my family and I all appreciate it.

  2. It is stated in the Daily Mail (on which this whole tzimmes is based) that "the Egyptian Agriculture Minister Dr Salah Abd Al Mamon said: ‘Egyptian armed forces and border guards are attempting to fight the swarm with all means at their disposal'."

    So what exactly are the Egyptians doing, davka? Checking the insects' passports, visas and how much foreign currency they have stashed in their wing cases?

    1. lol.. they are probably fighting the swarms more than they fight the Hamas tunnel smugglers!

  3. Thanks for including my post.
