An Israeli patrol on the Lebanese border received a large cake and thanks from Lebanese villagers yesterday “for keeping the terrorists away from our homes.” The cake was brought to the soldiers by a Lebanese woman who told them, in Hebrew, “This is a token of the villagers to the Israeli Army that keeps the terrorists away.” She said the villagers had armed themselves against the marauders. She explained that she spoke Hebrew because she was born in Acre and worked on Israeli farms. Since the 1948 was she has lived in Lebanon with her family.
