ASHKELON, Israel — For six months, Ido Ozeri worked to turn an old gym into a sparkling new restaurant/bar on Ashkelon's Delilah Beach. Thanks to Israel's economic boom, the pretty Mediterranean seaside town had begun to emerge from decades of sleepiness, and Ozeri was sure his chic tasteful pub, called Archie, would be a success. But on Friday — a relatively quiet day in Ashkelon, with only two or three air raid sirens — Ozeri looked around at his sparsely filled bar with the eyes of a worried parent.

Commentary: No one will admit the mistakes they’ve made — they just keep on making them. Airing the dirty laundry would mean admitting to and exposing the wrong and asking for help to clean up the mess.
