[The Life of Shaun #278] Armed Civilians

Pursuant to my last eMail, a friend commented about "armed civilians".  Everywhere (as in everywhere - from the streets to the hotel pool and lobby, restaurants, holy sites - everywhere) we see either obvious military personnel with big guns or seemingly regular folk - with big guns.  And I suppose this is why - you never know when a car's gonna come smashing through a crowd and someone's gonna have to kill the driver.
Armed civilians - you're right, Ajay - Israelis do live like Americans.
OK, off for the last viewings in Jerusalem and then we're off through the Jordan Valley to the Sea of Galilee to see if anyone feels like walking on water today!
