    I wish I could agree with your assessment of “calm”. The emails I’ve received from friends there don’t sound so calm. Kiryat Sefer and Ramat Beit Shemesh (among others) are absorbing families evacuated from the south. Altho’ these kids were living in relative calm, they now have new classmates who are sharing their stories of bomb shelters and rockets landing, and everyone’s having nightmares. The kids play “code red” that’s not a normal children’s game. Sorry to put this here, but I think in Jerusalem there’s a false sense of calmness that is just not felt elsewhere.

    Aliza, if you think that Jerusalem is calm, I bet that Tel Aviv is sitting in the cafes drinking whatever latte or whatever they drink there and totally out of touch as usual. You can count on people with TV to be anesthetized. That’s how Oslo and Gush Katif were pulled off on the people of Israel.

    Playing “code red” is a normal, healthy reaction to the situation. During the intifada the game I saw was throwing a ball and yelling, “pigua” (terrorist attack) – and all the kids running.

    I am honoured to be able to pray for Israel, and I am sure that the Will of God will prevail.
