I watched through my gun sights as the first head appeared from behind a rock about 30 meters way. "Hold your fire! We're Jews," he screamed.
One of them clutched a while tallit close to his chest, and burst into tears when he saw us. I gave him my canteen as he slumped on a rock. "We spent the whole night hiding from the enemy in a cave," he panted. "Our tank was wiped out, the driver killed. I thank G-d that we are still alive."

("If I Forget Thee, O Jerusalem, Let My Right Hand Wither" - Psalms 137:5)
"Closer inspection revealed a small hole near the driver's seat where a Soviet-made
RPG had punctured the armor"
One can only wonder how much better the world would have been if the Soviet Union had never come about.
