Another Sign of Impending War

Another sign of impending war here in Israel (in addition to the many rocket attacks in the south) is the work being done in the diplomatic and public relations spheres. When the Prime Minister goes to various countries to visit, he has private talks in addition to the sound bytes we see in the media. I don’t know what he is saying obviously, but I am sure the subject of the coming conflict must come up.

In terms of public relations, the Washington Post has an article that says that Israel has released a map showing thousands of sites in Lebanon where ammunition is being stored by Hezbollah in bunkers. Many of these bunkers are near hospitals, private homes and schools. In other words, the terrorists are hiding behind human shields by putting their ammunition there.

The big question of course is whether or not this information will be ignored.

    Your blogging in recent weeks has been truly remarkable. Tracking the falling of missiles from Gaza, as well as covering events on the ground (so to speak) involves a lot of homework. I’ll be referring friends and relatives curious about events in Israel that don’t make the New York Times to your blog.

    Thank you Shimshonit – but my “research” really is what most people do – I look at the news websites every day. Keeping the list is sometimes tedious, but the information is open to all.
