    Bobby, This article was written by one of Israel's most well-known .oppositional and vociferous leftists. Always opposed to war. Caught under fire he sang a new tune today. It is anyway astounding to read this as it gives a better picture than i can as I have not yet experienced bombardment . Although in retrospect I have experienced it in the past in Gush Katif (Gaza) when my daughter lived there and we were often under lock down with small rockets falling, at least 5000 of them when she lived there from 1998 to 2005. It is not a pleasant feeling as you will see from this well-written eye witness report.
