The Porta-Shelter

So imagine, you’re working in the field harvesting cucumbers (or whatever is in season right now) and suddenly the siren goes off – Hamas is shooting rockets at you.

What do you? Where do go? How do you stay safe?

The Department of Agriculture has donated dozens of portable bomb shelters to farmers working near the Gaza border.

So now Israel’s foreign workers can pick tomatoes and cucumbers in perfect safety, and Hamas can feel even more frustrated.

    Hmmmm, well, if they hadn’t destroyed the hot houses and farm plots abandoned when Israel moved the jewish settlers out they would have cultivatable property. There are very able bodied and capable people in Gaza, why are they not putting their skills to productive use to feed their families? Their leaders are their worst enemies.

  2. Ron Speer says:

    or imagine that you sacrifice your children for your evil cause
