I’m looking at the picture of this IDF soldier davening Shmoneh esreh in the fields outside Gaza, and I’m thinking: what’s going on here? Was the tank there before he bowed (in the first or one-before-last) blessing? Is that what happened? And when he rises, all nice and ready to proceed with his communing with the Transcendental, is he going to bang his poor head into the cannon?
I mean, army life is rough enough without banging your head into tank cannons when you least expect it!
