Although we are presently faced with a period of calm, it is the same period during which extreme forces are working in the Middle East — Condoleeza Rice, after a meeting with her Israeli counterpart, Tzipi Livni.
Israel needs to set up a hotel in Sderot, to put up foreign dignitaries like Ms. Rice. In the meantime, here’s another Jerusalem Post item that describes the ‘calm’ she refers to:
Four Kassams landed in the western Negev on Friday afternoon. No one was wounded and no damage resulted from any of the hits.
Near the Gaza-Israel border fence, IDF soldiers discovered a 12-kilogram bomb. Sappers detonated the device in a controlled explosion, and no one was wounded.
Another bomb was discovered In the West Bank. Sappers destroyed the 35-kg. bomb without incident. No damage was caused by either of the two devices.
In another development Friday, the IDF and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced that they had arrested on Tuesday a Palestinian suspected of perpetrating a shooting attack on an Israeli neighborhood.
