Life Goes On As The Bombs Fall

You’re not a proper surfer if you let a little incoming fire get in the way of a good break. Take that beach!

From Breitbart’s Big Peace: Surfing in Israel–Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Qassams.

When we got to the port and headed into the Scubar cafe, we found that the back wall had just been blown out by a Qassam missile from Gaza. The wait staff was cleaning up and simply said they would be closed for the night, but come back tomorrow.

A bit taken aback, I asked one of my companions what that meant–should we head home? He replied that it meant that we eat next door at the Blue Bar, and that I would not be able to have a Guinness with dinner. At dinner I asked how they could be so nonchalant about the missile. I was told that this is the life, and you must learn to live it and love it now. The missile was an hour ago, but good company and dinner were now. Not to enjoy it was to let the terrorists win. The shakshuka was good.
