IDF Sign of the Times
Due to the game [world cup] -- this gate (shin gimmel) is closed!
Urgent matters will be dealt with during the half-time break.
The Gate (Shin and Gimmel)
Additional explanation: The gate to any IDF base, settlement, kibbutz, moshav, etc is a called by the intials "shin gimmel " -- which stands for "Shaar Gader - שער גדר", the gateway of the fence.
Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael
