Going through some 2008 photos I came across this one.
Just an innocent Jerusalem street getting some innocent below-surface work, a bulldozer, and men digging inside a trench in the earth.

But now of course it reminds me of the Gaza terror tunnels network.
Don't want to think about it; too awful.
Especially after this morning when one of our soldiers, Hadar Goldin,  was most probably dragged down into one by terrorists during what was supposed to be a ceasefire.
.
UPDATE Aug. 3:  Late last night the IDF rabbi declared the officer dead, based on "findings from the battlefield," or "forensic evidence."   There will be a funeral this afternoon.
As the Jerusalem Post reports, " Chief Rabbi of the IDF, Brigadier Gen. Rafi Peretz, declared Goldin dead.  The decision was made according to the findings of a special board, headed by Peretz, who considered medical, halachic and other relevant considerations."

Sad that a mundane piece of machinery is a reminder of the tragedy that is happening.

It is absolutely horrible! These tunnels must be destroyed and Hamas removed once and for all. I wonder how many missiles do they have? Will they run out, or getting new supplies from tunnels in the south?

May God help Hadar and his family and those looking for him. He's on my prayer list now. Those tunnels are like the pit of hell. I am glad so many are being destroyed.

I keep hoping it'll end.... but when?

For the first time in a long time, I watched CNN. It was so sad seeing the beautiful photo of Hadar Goldin! I do hope they find him alive and bring him home.

I hope that sooner or later they will find a definitive 'cure' for these tunnels...

Ya, a cease fire... an oxymoron if I ever heard one. Stay safe.
