Oi what a surprise this fine Sunday morning!
I went out to toss a bag in our bin just before the thrice-weekly trash collection.
And what did I find stuck through the gate?
A Hebrew-language message from Jehovah's Witnesses!!
A tract, printed in Germany, from the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania.
I remember their missionary attempts from when I grew up in America, of course.
But I never knew we had Jehovah's Witnesses in Israel.
And how did they find my quiet street in our little town in the middle of nowhere in the Negev desert?
Let me just say that proselytizing is a very touchy subject in the Jewish State.
UPDATE: Wait, it gets worse. Blogger Jael just sent me a link to her post which shows Jehovah's Witnesses' headquarters in Tel Aviv! And the strong round building really does look like a Watch Tower!
