An Above Ground Tour, Presumably

Apparently the Chilean miners have been offered an all expenses paid trip to Israel, and they are on board, if they can bring their families (and in one case a mistress).

I want to suggest that when they are being bused around Israel they don’t get taken to the caves where the Maccabees hung out, and maybe skip all the dead sea scroll caves, too.

Something tells me they’ll love the mikfletzet, though…
