The Makhtesh Incident

I've written a short story, after a drought of almost two years. This story owes a lot to Assaf, who's blog and work gave me some background information, albeit accidently. Assaf is a true Indophile and one of the few who will need no explanations for the scattered religious in-jokes in the story.
Here's an excerpt:
"But the Hind horse was no ordinary horse: it was a genetically bio-engineered monster of a horse. It stood as high as an elephant, with steel armour and a real flaming mane. They must have been planning this for a long time. You could hear the horse's hoofs miles away in the desert. And it was marching towards Israel"
