Selfies and shwarma – Tel Aviv takes terrorism in stride

If the number of teenage girls taking selfies on the promenade is a barometer for how a city is coping the morning after a deadly terrorist attack, then it seems Tel Aviv will be alright.

The recently renovated promenade near the clock tower in Jaffa seemed basically the same as always the day after a terrorist from Kalkilya stabbed an American tourist to death and wounded 11 others, as long as you zoomed in close enough to miss the mounted policemen and Border Police officers with assault rifles patrolling at a leisurely pace.
