Is tommrow the day?

More rumours- everything beepd and rang at once. Our cell phones, chat programs...
Even our guests phones from the Ministry of Environment, who were over, began ringing... news from Gaza, from so and so source at the border, from a local radio station, from an internet news site, that the border would open tommorow for one day, from 8-5pm, during which thousands will try to return home, and thousands of others to go out-include pilgrims on their way to Mecca.

The news seemed to confirm itself one phone after another; then Palestine TV brought the breaking news, and more and more internet sights.

So, once more, we are packing up our belongings, just when our neighbour was contemplating buying a frying pan, and we head to the border tommorow at 7am.

From there, as ever, we will wait and see what happens.

In 1902, Herzl and the British serious considered basing Jewish settlement in the Sinai based around al-Arish and the lure of Mt. Sinai instead of Jerusalem.
