You don’t really feel protected: The dome misses sometimes, but it’s still better than nothing. Then there are the rumors – no one knows exactly where, and if, the rockets landed. Some say here, some say there. A few days ago the hot rumor was that one of the rockets landed a few meters from the American embassy. That really made me wonder – if such a horrible thing was to happen, what would America do? Right now, 45% of Israeli citizens live in the rocket range. Think of it this way: If Canada were ever to start a war with the U.S., the range would be equivalent to the land from the northern borders to the southern edge of Virginia, and then running all across the coast through the northern half of California.
