Karl, we are so close to each other, whatever happens in one country is bound to affect the other. When Israel idiotically blew the oil reservoirs last July, the oil reached Syria, Cyprus, Turkey and the edge of Greece. Israel was lucky that most of the mess was cleaned up before the winter southerly winds started as a good part of the oil would have ended up in Israeli waters and beaches. When Israel dropped the DU bombs on the villages near the border, it did not figure out that the wind was blowing from the villages back to Israel. As I said, whatever happens in one country is bound to affect the other; so as you can see, it is my business to be concerned with what my honest neighbours are up to. But you in Boston, you are good at making speeches from so far away; why don't you come and live near the border and smell the good local air?
