I Talked to Someone in Israel Today and You Didn't

(unless you are mobledqueen or bypolonius, in which case you talk to people in Israel every single day and are highly unimpressed by my feat.)

Ack, I have just been reassigned at work to handle incoming international calls as well as the domestic ones I've been handling for several years. This means I have to become an expert at understanding a whole new range of accents. It's weird enough talking to people with Southern accents! Now you expect me to learn a bunch of new international ones?

I just took a phone call from Tel Aviv, Israel. I discovered that the letter "l" when pronounced by someone speaking with an Israeli accent sounds remarkably like the letter "n." At least when pronounced by the particular someone I was on the phone with, anyway.
