A sign that things are quiet (bli ayin hara) in the north is that IDF radio broadcast its usual 11:00 am radio program "The Last Word". This program usually has two personalities, one from the left and one from the right of the political spectrum in Israel, who discuss current events in a combined humorous/serious vein. You know you are not a new immigrant anymore when you not only understand the Hebrew but you understand the jokes.
Today's hosts were Uri Orbach and Guy Meoz. Uri is a well known personality in the national religious camp, and is soft spoken but right wing. I don't know the background of Guy Meoz, but judging from his opinions he obviously is on the left.
The whole program was good - and I remember two good zingers. Guy complained that given the war a lot of his left-wing friends are going AWOL - to the right, and leaving him alone on the "battlefield".
Another good line was that "you know that things are bad when you are relieved to get reserve duty in Ramallah."
I really hope that it stays quiet, and that I don't have any updates to record.
