reports on some clashes with police today in East Jerusalem
, with police even firing stun grenades at Palestinians angry over the Beit Hanoun strike. I thought about sitting in a cafe by the Damascus gate and chatting with people about the event on my way back from Mt. Scopus, but saw on the way there early this afternoon that it was closed, perhaps because of these events. In any case, those worried about my safety should know that the East Jerusalemites were as friendly as usual as I cut my path through the area.
UPDATE: I've posted more commentary here
