I’m not sure why this strikes me as funny. Israel is a very small country but it makes a big “splash” in the news that far outweighs its tiny size. Often you’ll hear “the US and Israel” and so the first thought that crossed my mind when I read this next news item was…can you imagine this happening in the United States?
Well, to be honest, I can’t, and I guess that’s why it made me smile. In fact, it probably would make a lot of people smile…except those who planned to go home tomorrow by train:
From Israel National News:
Train service in Israel will be shut down Friday for repairs. The train
system is receiving a new control system named “Torch.” Train service will be
down for all of Friday and will resume on Saturday evening.
