With the reams upon reams of words being written in Israel about the prospect of an American-led attack on Syria over the past several days, in response to the Assad regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons to kill hundreds of its own people last week, one Israeli webmaster set up a site that cuts to the heart of the matter.
The “Kvar takfu” website consists of just one page and on it are just three words. The first two pose a question in Hebrew, “Kvar takfu?” which means “have they attacked yet?” referring to a possible strike by Western powers upon Syria. Below that appears word three, “Lo,” the Hebrew word for “no”… at least as of Thursday afternoon.
The site was set up on Thursday and by afternoon had over 4,000 Facebook “likes” and had been tweeted 114 times.
Since it’s never been tested, it is unclear how quickly the website would update if a strike went ahead. The public might therefore be advised to rely on more authoritative sources.
