Luckily (knock on wood), the security situation in Israel has been going well while I've been here. I hope that it continues that way.
Over the summer, there were two terrorist attacks in Jerusalem that involved tractors. The tractors were driven by terrorists into buildings, structures, people, etc. and resulted in multiple deaths. As I was preparing to leave Jerusalem this weekend, we were at the bus stop and heard a loud noise on the street. The people that were waiting started looking around and the person I was with quickly stepped back from the street. Along came a large tractor down the hill. We live in a very different society.
I just thought that I'd share.
