For a long time I promised Asaf that I would write about my experiences in the army, especially my tour of duty in Hebron. I didn’t realize how deeply traumatized I was from the experience until the Wye Plantation negotiations in October of 1998.
Bibi Netanyahu was negotiating a partial withdrawal from Hebron. I’m a person who never has problems sleeping. But that week, I tossed and turned. I had an almost physical need for those negotiations to end positively. I was obsessed. When the agreement was signed, I felt a great burden off my heart
But now the Israeli army is back in full force. And Sharon intends to greatly expand the settlement of Hebron. Once again I am obsessed. So now, finally, I have to write. It begins here.
