Stormy weather in Jaffa

In Jaffa, the violence continues. Over the weekend, three young guys were shot in the area of Dante and Pushkin street. Luckily for them they suffered only light wounds. They took themselves to Wolfson Hospital, whose emergency unit staff by now have much experience in treating Jaffa's wounded. When Dante wrote about hell, i must have meant some parts of Jaffa.
Another guy was knifed in Pahad Yitzhak street. And in Nahal HaBsor street a fight among neighbours led to the torching of one of them.

The Kraken

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth; faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides: above him swell
Huge millenial growth and height;
And far away in the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages and will lie
Battening on huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson
