Gearing up for Prez. George Bush

In two more days the president of the United States of America will be visiting Israel. I can see the buzzing difference. So many helicopters buzzing this way and that way. Forwarnings of streets being closed off, buses being re-routed. Goodness gracious.

I'm hearing rumors that they'll close off Jerusalem, cancel all outgoing flights, etc. I've even heard that they might even parachute him down into his hotel. (lol)

He is such an interesting figure in Israel. Some, because of the pronunciation of his name (George can be pronounced gog) think he might be more than what we're seeing on the surface. Others worry that he's misled by 'erev rav' (a certain group of Jews who aren't really Jews -the mixed multitude back in the Moses story).

Whatever the case may be, Its just unfortunate that its coinciding with the time my mother is coming. Hopefully, things will go smoothly for our visit.

They should hold the meetings with him in any area currently being hit with rockets. See how much security and anti-rocket defense technology suddenly guards the area.

This http://tinyurl.com/2pxbk9 thing might get deployed and G-d willing left in place to defend the citizens.

Suitepotato -I wish! I wish they wouldn't sugar coat things for him. But the truth is I think its the gov that wants to split the land almost as much as if not more than Mr. Prez.

Tr8erGirl -Thanks!
