John also notes the events that have made this an interesting time to be making my first visit to Israel, an almost indescribably fascinating and wonderful country. I spent time yesterday talking with my guide about the insanity and implacability of the nation’s enemies, and the steady resolve it requires of all Israelis to simply outlast the killers.
It is by the way a great time to be in Israel, as welcoming and interesting place as I have ever visited. Off to support the Israeli economy! I hope guest host Guy Benson uses some of his conversation with Mark Steyn today to note how the particulars of yesterdays attacks point to the future unless the Egyptian military resolves to keep its border with Israel secure.
