If you listen carefully you can hear some Hebrew words in almost every big city in the world. That what happened to me in the 14 of December 2003 when i was in Amsterdam and saw hundreds of Kurds dancing slowly but happily to the sounds of their monotone music. I heard some Hebrew words near me and asked the woman what happened. She told me that Saddam Husein was captured by the Americans. It all came to my mind yesterday when i noticed that i still have the gas masks from the Gulf war at 1991.I shall keep them to remind me that some of our greatest fears have sometimes an expiry date.
