It turns out most of those killed in the terrorist attack on Sunday weren't foreign workers after all. Most of the 22 victims were Israeli. Not that it matters much. An effort is being made to make things easier for the foreigners injured. Family members are being flown in to be with their loved ones, and the new immigration administration has promised to halt all its activities in Tel Aviv (arresting and deporting foreign illegals) for the time being. I understand Israel is flying the bodies of the foreigners killed in the attack back to their countries of origin.

Sunday is the foreign workers' day off and many of them come to Tel Aviv from other areas in the country to meet with their friends and go to church. I am relieved that all the foreign workers I know personally are accounted for.
