What was supposed to be a mundane announcement has a brought a smirk to my face:

The Bank of Israel set the rate of the shekel higher against most of the currencies on its foreign exchange list on Monday. The exception was the Lebanese lira, which showed no change.

Are you serious? I can exchange my pounds in Tel Aviv? In case you are wondering, 1000LBP will get you 2.48ILS.
