The funeral for a top police officer will be held Sunday, after he was killed helping his son change a flat tire on Road 5. Jack Lugasi, who was the head dog trainer for the Israel Police, was killed when a truck hit him on the side of the road as he was changing the tire over the weekend. Two other people hurt in the incident.
Police arrested the driver of the truck, who was said to be driving drunk.

Egyptian authorities reported Sunday that they had found four Gazan Arabs dead in a smuggling tunnel between Egypt and Gaza. Apparently the four died from a lack of oxygen. Although Israel has destroyed dozens of smuggling tunnels between Egypt and Gaza, it is estimated that many more remain. The tunnels are often used to smuggle weapons into Gaza

sad :(

If Israel releases the 1,400 terrorists Hamas is demanding for the return of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, kidnapped by Hamas and being held by the terror group in Gaza, some of the released terrorists could be relocated to Syria, top Hamas terrorist Mahmoud Zahar told Arab media Saturday.

Political analysts for Israel Radio said that the offer was aimed at stemming the fears of Israelis that the terrorists would continue to attack Israelis. Hamas believes that more Israelis will support the deal if they believe the terrorists will no longer pose a direct threat.

Mio Technologies has started marketing a GPS system to the religious public in Israel. The GPS features the location of 2,000 kosher restaurants, 3,360 synagogues, 280 mikvaot (ritual baths), 300 religious schools, 460 cemeteries, and 200 other religious sites. The GPS system also has other features specifically for the religious driver: The wayfarer’s prayer, the blessing after a meal, psalms, a prayer book, and a religious calendar with the Sabbath times. In addition, all voice instructions on the GPS are in a male voice.
