An IDF captain was killed in an ambush in Gaza today (details). This is the type of thing that I've been afraid of - maintaining a longer-term presence in Area A makes the IDF vulnerable to these kinds of attacks. Enduring these attacks is of course better than allowing Islamikazes to infiltrate, but I hope we also have a strategy for minimizing risk to the IDF.

Here's a story about a fellow who's been called up to an elite IDF reserve unit.

The Christian Science Monitor has an article comparing the "green line security fence" to the Berlin Wall, the Great Wall of China, and the Korean DMZ. Wow how flattering.
