kissufim - Israel and Hamas are balancing on the brink of war. Yet you do not notice that at Benny Hason. A mortar grenade has just come down next to him, but it hardly botheres him. With a cigarette in his mouth he unrolls a fire hose to extinguish the fire next to his barn in Kissufim, a few hundred meters from Gaza. 'I remain an optimist,' he grins.
