More Bits and Pieces
Today is a perfectly gorgeous day in north central Texas. The temp is 42, with a wind chill at 34, but the skies are crystal clear. Tonight, the temp is supposed to drop into the mid-20's. Brrr!! Cowboy made a stick-to-your-ribs (and hips) Shepherd's Pie for dinner, and it was yummy comfort food on a cold day. Since I am now too full to do anything else, I found some more interesting bits and pieces to post.
DEBKAfile Exclusive: The Palestinian terrorist band heading for attacks on Israeli holidaymakers in Sinai is the same group which kidnapped Gilead Shalit on June 25. The story goes on to say "It is a joint Hamas-Jihad Islami- Popular Resistance Committees team plus members of the Islamic Army (aka al Qaeda-Palestine)", who are hooking up with a "large al Qaeda force of 70 men, which infiltrated Sinai on July 31 and has not yet struck,....... suggesting that al Qaeda may be holding its fire until the winter holiday season which begins with the eight-day Jewish Channukah starting on Dec. 16, followed eight days later by Christmas, when many thousands of foreign and Israeli tourists usually crowd Sinai’s beaches and hotels.
I'm thinking I would not enjoy holiday travel in Israel.
Debbie Schlussel has a great story of one passenger's account of the terrorizing behavior of the Traveling Imams (a/k/a the Flying Imams). Read it and the comments.
I am apparently obsessed with this story.
