The year: 1953
The place: A border kibbutz in the southIt was midnight, and I had already finished several patrols around the kibbtuz. I walked into the kitchen where my wife sat, a few dead fully-feathered chickens next to the stool. White and trembling, she said, “The chicken squawked!” I looked at the chickens.
