Harry Potter Remembered

Disclaimer: This post will only be relevant if you are up on current events and/or a Harry Potter fanatic (like me)

You have to be living under a rock if you have nor heard about the civil unrest that is going between Israel and its little brother Gaza.

A little background on Gaza:

Size: Twice the size of Washington D.C with 1.5 million people in about 146 sq miles

History: For years, Gaza was occupied by Israel fro 1967 to 1993, but with most political issues in that area, there were many issues still unresolved.

Recently, Gaza and Israel began to get into a little "tiff" in the likes of the battle of David vs Goliath (but something tells me that this time the victory will go to the latter).

Anyway, Israel showed a bit of mercy to the minion like Gaza by conceding to a 3 hour cease fire each day so that Gaza can recoup its losses.

How gallant of Big Brother.

(Gag Alert: This is the Geeky part)

When I heard that Israel was granting a reprieve in the fighting, I could not help but envision the last great battle in the final series of Harry Potter "The Deathly Hallows" where Voldermort surreptitiously called for a cease fire when as he attempted to take over Hogworts.

I told you it was a cheesy post in the beginning, so it's your own fault you read all the way through to the end.
