The residents of Rajar.
Huh, I hear you ask? What's Rajar? (Sounds like, "Where's Waldo?")
Rajar is a village on the border of Israel and Lebanon/Syria, which has been part of Israel since 1967. It's residents are Israeli, vote in Israeli elections, receive their services from Israel...and till today -- had IDF soldiers stationed in their town.
About 2,100 residents live in Ghajar, some 1,550 of them in the northern part, the latter were surprised to hear in the media about the government's decision that they will be supervised by the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon and that IDF soldiers will be stationed on the 'Blue Line.'But the residents have nothing to worry about.
The village's secretary, Najib Hatib, was furious: "We have been living without a mother or father for almost seven years. Who will take care of brining food to the babies? Who will take care of repairing electricity and phone problems? Perhaps the UN, perhaps the Lebanese army?"
The National Security Cabinet has decided to adopt the proposal calling for Israel to withdraw from the northern part of the Lebanese border village of Ghajar and to hand over responsibility there to the UN peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon.
I'm sure they'll be able to sleep soundly now.
