Still decidedly quiet on this front. I am worried about what will happen when Baghdad is invaded, but the Israelis don't seem worried about anything. I think two years of non-stop carnage have jaded them completely, they see Saddam as yet another in a series of existential dangers, and at least they have some distance from him, so why worry? Plus, they have Arik Sharon in power, who, despite (or perhaps because of) his reputation, most Israelis see as a comforting, benevelent grandfather who will keep them safe no matter what. More on that subject when I have the time.
