JERUSALEM — For the major textile companies in Israel, exports are the core of their business, so despite the Hamas rockets falling in the country’s south and the Israeli military response in the Gaza Strip, business in the region marches on.
The town of Kiryat Gat — home to the headquarters of Bagir Ltd., makers of technologically innovative men’s and women’s suits, as well as an Intel factory for computer chips — is just 15 miles east of Gaza, but the current military action against Gaza-based Hamas has had no impact on Bagir or its operations, said Moshe Gadot, the company’s global development and marketing director.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
