I had to laugh the first time I walked down to Meitar from the eastern desert hills.
There on the periphery of my town, just before the outermost houses, stood a green sign.
(You can see it between the two utility poles.)
NO ENTRY TO FLOCKS !!
I can't read Arabic, but the Hebrew warning, literally translated, is
IT IS FORBIDDEN FOR HERDS TO ENTER!!
OFFENDERS WILL BE PROSECUTED UNDER LAW!
I laughed, imagining sheep and goats in handcuffs standing before a judge.
What I cannot imagine is a flock invading clean, orderly Meitar and starting to poop and graze in the parks and the now-lush gardens of residents.
The faded and bent old sign must be a throwback to 29-year-old Meitar's earlier days.
