I spent all day today in the southern region near Gaza and learned part of the story about what’s going on down there. An IDF soldier I ran into said “It’s about time you got down here,” “you” being the media. Most foreign correspondents left the country after the cease-fire in Lebanon, and I don’t know what the rest are doing right now. But then the rental car broke down in the evening and I was stranded for hours. (That in itself is a story.) So now I’m finally back in civilization, but in this time zone it’s way too late to write all this up. Stay tuned, though. I’ll get to it soon.
