JERUSALEM - Every city has a main street, a thoroughfare that defines a downtown, and this city's is Jaffa Road. Israelis also know it as the "street of the bombers." Main streets attract people, and in Jerusalem, people attract gunmen and men with bombs strapped to their chests. That deadly combination has rendered the busiest part of Jaffa Road - the area between the central post office and Manhane Yehuda food market, a distance of six-tenths of a mile - one of the most dangerous areas in Israel.

JERUSALEM - Even for the security-conscious city of Jerusalem, the police deployments yesterday were remarkable. There were police dressed in blue, police dressed in the khaki-green of soldiers, police on horses and in cars - all on Jaffa Road, where a bomb had ripped apart a line of shops, killed the Palestinian bomber as well as an elderly Israeli and injured more than 100 other people Sunday. Sharpshooters stood on the rooftops. Police in jeeps drove back and forth. Authorities cast a suspicious gaze on every pedestrian and pressed young Palestinian men against walls to be patted down.

Upon my return from a week's vacation this past summer in Tel Aviv, my friends and family appeared visibly impatient as I bragged about the city's beaches (" ... the sand? Like talcum powder!"), fascinating architecture, great shopping, as well as chic restaurants that serve splendid, fresh Mediterranean cuisine and excellent Israeli wines. No sooner did I pause for air, then they quickly interrupted, and always with the same two questions. "Did you feel safe there?" Answer: Yes, completely, despite several vivid reminders of Israel's perilous geopolitical status.

There were some unusual stories that came out of yesterday's Baltimore County/District 6 golf tournament at the Longview course. First came the fact that the tournament had to double as the county and district competition because rain canceled the original tournament date a few weeks ago. Then came the fact that a Baltimore City golfer shot the day's best round - and got a hole-in-one to boot. In addition, a girl shot the second-best round overall. But in the end, the fact that Dulaney won the team title didn't surprise anyone.

Max Jaffa, the violinist and orchestra leader who entertained BBC audiences with light classical music for decades, died Tuesday at his home in London at 79. No cause of death was given. Mr. Jaffa gained fame after World War II as leader of the Palm Court Orchestra in the long-running British Broadcasting Corp. program "Grand Hotel."Yusuf Idris, one of Egypt's best-known playwrights whose work often reflected his strong anti-Israeli views, died yesterday in London of heart failure. He was 64. Mr. Idris was considered the literary equal of Naghib Mahfouz, the Egyptian writer who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1988.

`OUR belief is that this war between us and the Jews will continue to escalate until we vanquish the Jews and enter Jerusalem as conquerors [and] enter Jaffa [adjacent to Tel Aviv] as conquerors. We are not merely expecting a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital; we are heralding [the creation of] an Islamic caliphate with Jerusalem as its capital." An excerpt of a sermon Sept. 21 by Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi delivered at the Sheikh 'Ijlin mosque in Gaza and broadcast by Palestinian Authority Television.

JERUSALEM - Sometimes I meet my neighbor this way: A tremendous explosion rocks our limestone building and we both rush onto our balconies to peer down at horrors blurred by dark smoke. So it was Jan. 27. A young Palestinian - the first woman in 16 months of fighting to do so - set off a blast that shook loose pigeons from rooftops. Red scraps of her body flecked an alley, and an elderly Israeli man who had stood beside her was dead. The street crunched with glass. Mannequins riddled by bullets in a shooting a week earlier spilled into the sidewalk.
