My apologies to all and sundry (but in particular to my fellow Israelis) for ignoring the war on my blog. My excuses are as follows: it is year-end and I am an accountant; I just got internet at home yesterday and ...I do not know exactly what to say.
I will think of something and post it later, but in the meantime:
1) This guy is saying part of what I am thinking, and very well.
2) Jack has pulled together a collection of what everyone else is saying.
3) This video says a bit more of what I am thinking.
