A mathematical analysis of Gaza's casualties
I just came back from the place you see in the picture below, and it was much less crowded than in past years. In fact, the crowds this year were so small that the buses actually came in the Dung Gate and parked right outside the parking lot. I cannot remember the last time that happened on Tisha b'Av - usually you have to walk outside the walls of the Old City.
Lots of people dump irrelevant links to their own blogs into my comments (which is one of the reasons I moderate comments), but today I got one that was really good and I urge you all to read it. It's called Math v. Anti-Semitic Propaganda and you can find it here
